Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #11 - A Review

Evil never sleeps. Well, metaphorically. Most super-villains do require some degree of sleep, even though there's supposed to be no rest for the wicked! But there is one villain whose whole gimmick is attacking heroes while they sleep. He is Nightmare and he has it in mind to drive Squirrel Girl nuts!

But a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. And it turns out what Doreen Green doesn't know can't hurt her. What does she know? Computer science! And she's going to use it to save the day and educate all you lucky readers!

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is a delightful book on every level. And this one-shot story is a perfect introduction for those who have yet to give this series a shot. Ryan North's script is a hoot, playing upon the literal nature of Nightmare's powers to great effect. The artwork by fill-in artist Jacob Chabot proves close enough to Erica Henderson's style that it took some work to find the one panel Henderson did draw for this issue. And the color art of Rico Renzi leaves every panel popping on the page. Simply put, this is one of my favorite comics right now. And this issue is a prime example why it is one of my favorite comics right now.
