    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Apr 22, 2015

    This is a title that puts the laughs well before things like plot, though character development also takes a front seat in the list of priorities. This title is underrated in its ability to generate human characters, even if they might not be the most realistic, that would actually feel disingenuous in an issue thats going for smiles and laughs more than pathos and introspection. The meta beginning alone is worth it AND perfectly communicates what the issue, and the book at large, is all about. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 25, 2015

    I can do nothing but heap praise upon this glorious issue. It's laugh out loud funny, it's adorable, it manages to sneak past the reverence I have for Galactus, and it keeps the ongoing story rolling nicely along. It's full of surprises and jokes I never saw coming (that Squirrel Man bit is beyond hilarious!). Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is the funniest comic on the stands. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Apr 25, 2015

    The writing plays with the reader while remaining playful throughout. All the characters are taken seriously but are used for humorous effect, not to mention playing with the audience's expectations " expectations of comicbook form as well as characterization. It's pure fun and whimsy but not without it's genuineness. It's impossible to read this issue without a smile. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Apr 22, 2015

    "The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" is nuts (YUP), great to look at and perfectly blends comedy with an actual storyline that matters. North, Henderson and Renzi are unbeatable (YUP AGAIN) and doing some great things with a character far too many people write off as too silly. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Apr 23, 2015

    While most of the Big Two's other comics are either in the midst of a massive (and massively over-complicated) crossover, or onlyapproaching the vastness of another (incredibly similar) one, a self-contained, light, and funny all-ages comic like Unbeatable Squirrel Girl should be on everyone's pull list. Its adorable irreverence (and blessed self-containment) is the perfect antidote to much of DC and Marvel's current output, and will keep a buck-toothed grin on your face from cover to cover.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 27, 2015

    There's a lot of jokes behind Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, but at the end of the day, it's probably one of the smartest superhero books on the stands. Every villain is the hero of their own story, and that means they each have their own motivations, foibles and quirks - and Ryan North and Erica Henderson seem to know exactly what makes these supervillains tick. If only all comics could be this consistently entertaining, funny, and above all, surprisingly smart. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Jul 26, 2015

    Squirrel Girl is a wonderful character and it's because of issues like this. It personifies why Squirrel Girl is so beloved among her small but dedicated and hopefully increasing following. She's just a mutant with squirrel powers who takes on these incredibly huge and powerful problems. She doesn't face them by brooding them to death or by devising ingenious plans that no one else could come up with. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 23, 2015

    Perhaps a comic where Galactus describes Thanos as "half Goth, half hipster" isn't for everyone, but it certainly scratches an itch when it comes to oddball superhero comedy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 27, 2015

    "The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" #4 is a fine example of what comics should be. This isn't a comic for everybody, but it makes sure everybody has a comic for themselves. This is a silly, fun adventure that doesn't take itself or the Marvel Universe too seriously, but it does connect to the Marvel Universe, offering North and Henderson plenty of fodder to play around and share with readers. There is a continuing thread building through the series as North and Henderson continue to develop the relationship between Doreen and her roommate, Nancy, but "The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" #4 is a strong, self-sufficient serving of fun. There should always be an "Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" type of comic to offer relief from comic events and even other general grittiness. Read Full Review
