From School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Supervillains and criminals meet their match with Tony Stark's friend Squirrel Girl, aka Doreen Green, a college freshman with the appearance, speed, and agility of a squirrel. Fitting in proves to be challenging, as normal girls do not talk to or have a squirrel sidekick, nor do they have super strength. Then there is Squirrel Girl's roommate, who has a tough exterior and is obsessed with knitting and her cat. Luckily, Squirrel Girl has a knack for winning people over. When Galactus threatens Earth, the heroine must rely on more than strength to defeat the Devourer of Worlds. She may have extraordinary strength, an army of squirrels at her disposal, a collection of Deadpool villain trading cards, and nut-inspired catchphrases, but it is her ability to form connections with people that proves to be her most powerful asset. North and Henderson have created a fun, fast-paced graphic novel that will appeal to Marvel fans as well as readers who are unfamiliar with—or do not enjoy—traditional superhero comics. Bright, bold color choices fit well with the humorous tone. Squirrel Girl is likable, confident, and endearing—the first scene shows her beating up muggers while enthusiastically singing her self-written theme song. The updated character design, snappy dialogue, and quirky characteristics make her a relatable heroine whom readers of all ages will root for. Also included is the 1991 classic Marvel Super-Heroes #8 comic, in which Squirrel Girl first appears. VERDICT A first-purchase for all graphic novel collections.—Marissa Lieberman, East Orange Public Library, NJ
About the Author
Ryan North is the (New York Times bestselling, Eisner-award winning) creator of Dinosaur Comics, the co-editor of the Machine of Death series, and the author of To Be or Not To Be, the choose-your-own-path version of Hamlet! He has written the "Adventure Time" comic and writes "The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" for Marvel Comics, who you might know from their movies about an iron man.
He also once reviewed the novelization of Back to the Future, page-by-page, which was crazy. I think you can buy that book on this site too. It's called "B to the F". Maybe check it out!!
He lives in Toronto, Canada with his wife Jenn and his dog Noam Chompsky! --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Seriously though, Squirrel Girl worked best when she was a member of the Great Lakes Avengers. She's a gag character who fit in with the goofy narrative. Or maybe team her up with Deadpool or something, that'd be neat. This series is trash. If you want to get into Squirrel Girl then read the Great Lakes Avengers. A complete edition with all of her appearances was published somewhat recently. Just pick that up.
