Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #3 - A Review

Galactus approaches Earth and only Squirrel Girl can stop him!  Of course there's also a hostage situation at the Empire State University Campus Bank and only Squirrel Girl can stop that! And then you've got Whiplash running around, determined to beat the stuffing out of Squirrel Girl as part of a convoluted plan to get revenge on Iron Man. And yes, only Squirrel Girl can stop him too.

Man, are all the other heroes slacking off this month, or what?!

I've joked before about not having the words to describe my love for this book. It's not much of a joke. I really don't know how to describe this book to those who aren't immediately enraptured by the idea of a comic about a superhero turned college freshman who can make an armored suit out of squirrels. Because if that idea doesn't make you say "Oh my gods that is the most amazing thing ever and how did I live without such joy in my life?", there's little I can say to convince you of the glory that is Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

This is a fun book. The kind of fun we rarely see in comics these days. I don't need your Secret Wars. Just give me more of Doreen Green and I will be a happy fanboy.
