The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1

Share with your fellow Consumers!

I would just like to start by saying this is not a review, it’s a recommendation. I want to make that clear because I don’t want anyone complaining: “This isn’t a review. It’s just some babbling with a bunch of pictures and then some piss taking out of Deadpool”.

It’s a recommendation.

And that recommendation is to buy this comic.  Go out and treat yourself to one of the funniest comics on the shelf. I mean, look at this…

USG insert 1.1

It’s written by Ryan North who also writes the amazingly bizarre (and equally funny) Adventure Time comics for KaBoom! and, if truth be told, this is Adventure Time in the Marvel Universe. Which gets the thumbs up from me. The art work by Erica Henderson also draws on the Adventure Time vibe and creates stunning visual gags which go hand in hand with the script. Just look…

Squirrel Girl #1 is laugh out loud funny and is appropriate for all ages so it can be enjoyed by every member of the family, unlike so much of the MU. And it’s definitely better than any of that “I’m so clever with my fourth wall breaking madness” that is Deadpool’s one and only joke. (I pick on him only because he makes an appearance in the much better Squirrel Girl comic).

Basically, it will only cost you a couple of quid so won’t break the bank. And if you have limited funds, just miss out on this months Avengers, it’s only going to be about a bunch of Heroes standing around talking about depressing things that may or may not happen in a story you’ll probably not read so you might as well treat yourself to 20 pages of hilarity. In this issue SG fights some muggers, starts at University and fights the Immortal Kraven the Hunter (when did he become Immortal?). It has everything you could possibly want all wrapped up in a heap of gags.

And just in case you need another little nudge, it even gets the thumbs up from Ironman…

The Unbeatable Squirrel is just that: Unbeatable!

It’s published by Marvel, written by Ryan North and illustrated by Erica Henderson. It’s also out there now, available to everyone and anyone, everywhere. (except for Deadpool)
