Today's post is on The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 1: Squirrel Power by Ryan North, Erica Henderson (Artist). The cover has Doreen on dreaming about being hero welcomed by the Avengers. It is 128 pages long and is published by Marvel. The intended reader is young adult, likes comic books, and over-the-top story lines. There is no foul language, no sex, and comic violence in this book. The story is told from third person close of Doreen and her roommate. There Be Spoilers Ahead.
From the back of the book- Wolverine, Deadpool, Doctor Doom, Thanos: There's one hero that's beaten them all-and now she's got her own ongoing series! (Not that she's bragging.) That's right, you asked for it, you got it, it's SQUIRREL GIRL! (She's also starting college this semester.) It's the start of a brand-new set of adventures starring the nuttiest and most upbeat super hero in the world!
Review- This is a great comic book. It is so funny with interesting characters and fun plots. Doreen is just starting out in her life both as a superhero and a college student. She wants the normal college student life but there is no way that she is giving up being a superhero. So she has to learn how to manage and it is hilarious. She gets into fights with villains and wins because either is she outsmarts them or talks them out of whatever they were doing. I loved Doreen. She is so funny and she can think outside of the box. The best scene in this volume is when she is talking with Galactus about all the Five stars baddies she has beaten up. I cannot wait to read the next volume.
I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I borrowed this book from my local library.
