SQUIRREL GIRL ONGOING SERIES.
Clearly, Marvel has learned the Rocket Raccoon lesson well.
The series will be written by Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics) with art by Erica Henderson (Subatomic Party Girls.) Rico Renzi adds color, and Art Adams ads a variant cover. EW has the scoop:
In Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, writer Ryan North and artist Erica Henderson take on the lighthearted superheroine whose mutant gene gives her an endearing cocktail of squirrel-related superpowers. When the comic book begins, she’s starting college—but in no time at all, Squirrel Girl is defending Earth from threats most cosmic. Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is another quietly bold move for Marvel—a female-centric comic that’s intended to appeal equally to canon-heads and newcomers—and EW is excited to share an exclusive first look at the cover, drawn by Henderson.
Oh, it’s on.
