The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 2: Squirrel You Know It's True


Today's post is on The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 2: Squirrel You Know It's True by Ryan North and Erica Henderson. It is the second collected volume of the Squirrel Girl comic book. It is 120 pages long and is published by Marvel. The cover has Doreen in the center with a flashlight lighting up her face. The intended reader is someone who likes humor, puns, and great story lines. There is no foul language, no sex, and only comic violence in this comic book. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- The breakout character of 2015 continues her one-woman crusade against injustice and jerks! These TAILS of the Squirrel Girl will show you the Marvel Universe's most powerful super hero from a bunch of brand-new perspectives, several of them QUITE ASTONISHING.
Squirrel Girl meets potential new allies, including Chipmunk Hunk, Koi Boi, and... Girl Squirrel!?! Yes! But the two rodent-themed heroines don't quite see eye-to-beady-eye - and Squirrel Girl's dislike might be justified! Now, as the world goes mad and the Avengers attack, Squirrel Girl must face Ratatoskr, the Norse God of Squirrels! There's a theme in this book, I don't know if you can tell. The fate of the world hangs in the balance, though, we promisr. Featuring fights! Feelings! Sass! Punches! Friendship! A character named Hippo who is literally a hippo! And several tails (tales) of Squirrel Girl from all kinds of perspectives!

Review- Another funny adventure with Squirrel Girl and friends. The first story is about Nancy waiting to get recused and trying to tell her fellow hostages about Squirrel Girl and no one listening. It is pretty funny. But the real meat of the story is about the Norse God Ratatoskr. She whispers in everyone's ears when they sleep and make attack others. Squirrel Girl beats up all the Avengers to make them stop being mean. It was awesome. Again the social media interactions with other heroes and Squirrel Girl are just the best thing. Everyone gets in on this one again. Thor, both old and new, and Loki are major side characters for this story. Nancy gets to have some fun and see Asgard. I can not wait to read the next volume of this amazing series.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I borrowed this comic book from my local library.
