• It's the 25th anniversary of Squirrel Girl! Twenty-five years ago THIS MONTH, she made her first appearance in MARVEL SUPER-HEROES vol. 2 #8, way back in January 1992!
•  Then nothing really happened with her for like a decade, until 2005, when she appeared in - wait, what am I, Wikipedia? Wikipedia has all this stuff, and people don't read comic solicits for a HISTORY LESSON: they read them for some SWEET SPOILERS on what will be in their comics several months from now! So let's spoil some comics, huh??

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 11, 2017

    This is a great 25th anniversary issue as it reveals Squirrel Girl's youth in a way many will relate to, but also laugh along with. The fact they've brought in a co-creator to write a portion is great and great fun. Squirrel Girl brings the good vibes, plenty of chuckles, and a great time between you and comics. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jan 15, 2017

    I've seen many dismiss Unbeatable Squirrel Girl due to it's silly story-lines and upbeat artwork. Their loss. This book is a welcome antidote to the grimness that has taken over the Marvel Universe and proof thatgreat comics don't have to take themselves seriously. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Chris Martinez Feb 3, 2017

    This book's biggest fault is solely because its mostly flashback. I know that's harsh but the writing is solid, as usual, and the art is as always beautiful. Overall, I can't recommend this series enough. If you haven't read The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl yet do yourself a favor and pick it up. Can't wait for #17! Read Full Review

    Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is the funniest comic on the stands, and issues like this one also show us that it's one of the most heartfelt and character-rich as well. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 16, 2017

    For Squirrel Girl's 25th's Anniversary, it's Doreen Green's 20th birthday! Don't think about it too much, you'll get a headache. This issue is some nice fan-service, and carries a good message for kids, so you can't be too mad at it. There are a few references to the original Squirrel Girl from 1992 that might be missed by new readers, but I imagine they wouldn't confuse anyone too much. Read Full Review

    I read this series as a trade but I still decided to buy and have this special issue.
    Excellent, as always! Once again, the story is hilarious and Ryan North's notes beneath the pages are great. The issue is full of easter eggs, but my favorite of all is the "It's clobberin' time" clock! It's also very enjoyable to see Doreen through the ages, from her childhood to her 20th birthday. Will Murray's part is a nice addition, specially how he references the first apparition of the character. This issue is, for me, the best of this incredible series!
