Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl is not your typical college freshman. She’s got superhuman strength and agility and the ability to communicate with squirrels. A strong, confident young heroine all readers will root for, check out this week’s staff pick The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl by Ryan North.
“Wolverine. Deadpool. Doctor Doom. Thanos. There’s one hero who’s beaten them all, and now she’s got her own book! And to celebrate she’s set her sights even higher – much higher. We’re talking Galactus! But first Doreen Green, aka Squirrel Girl, is starting college, making new friends, eating nuts and kicking butts, not necessarily in that order! Together with her best (human) pal Nancy, and her best (squirrel) pal Tippy-Toe, and armed only with a tail and some foe fact-filled trading cards, she’ll take on villains including Kraven the Hunter, Whiplash and, oh, yeah, the Devourer of Worlds!” —Amazon
