The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 3: Squirrel, You Really Got Me Now

Today's post is on The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 3: Squirrel, You Really Got Me Now by Ryan North and Erica Henderson. It is the second collected volume of the Squirrel Girl comic book. It is 168 pages long and is published by Marvel. The cover has Doreen with the cover in half; one half is her student life with her friends, and the other her life with the New Avengers. 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- New series, New Avenger! With her unique combination of wit, empathy and squirrel powers, computer science student Doreen Green - aka the unbeatable Squirrel Girl - is all that stands between the Earth and total destruction. Well, Doreen plus her friends Tippy-Toe (a squirrel) and Nancy (a regular human with no powers). So, mainly Squirrel Girl. Then what hope does the Earth have if she gets hurled back in time to the 1960s and erased from history? At least Nancy will never forget her friend, but what invincible armored Avenger can she call on to help, through the magic of social media? Decades apart, can they avert doom, or will everything go wrong forever? Howard the Duck hopes not...he has an appointment for a crossover!

Review- I love the Squirrel Girl series so much. They are so much fun and Doreen is great! In this volume we get to meet her mother, save a brain from Hydra, defeat Doctor Doom, and have a crossover with Howard the Duck. With so much to love about this series it is hard to pick just one thing but I think that I love the friendship between Doreen and Nancy as my favorite. They just get each other and work so well together. Nancy helps Doreen to everything from defeat Doctor Doom to studying together. The stories in this volume are a lot of fun and Howard the Duck crossover worked. A crazy villain who wants to hunt the animal-human hybrids is kidnapping them with some help from Kraven the Hunter but when she wants to hunt Doreen too that is a step too far. A really fun and funny fight ensues and I cannot wait to read the next one.

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