They said it couldn’t last, but The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl made the cut to all new, all different, all post Secret Wars Marvel and here’s a peek at the first issue, which hits in October. Writer Ryan North and artist Erica Henderson have made this a kicky title in the Batgirl/Lumberjanes tradition that has sold well enough in collected form to make the NY Times bestseller list. The new #1 finds Doreen Green balancing life as a college student with her butt kicking role as a New Avenger, aided by her squirrel companion Tippy Toe and her bestie Nancy. In other words, it’s a classic set up for Marvel style adventure.
