    Comics Bulletin - PJ Hunsicker Feb 10, 2015

    Squirrel Girl is unabashedly, manically, anarchically giddy in its inception and the tone is infectious. Marvel has unleashed something wonderful here and Im excited to see whats in store for this truly charming book in the future. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Nick Ford Jul 9, 2015

    Overall, this is another incredible entry and the only problem that was going on with the slightly too small flavor text seems to be corrected as well! So I have no choice but to give this a perfect 10. Read Full Review

    The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is cute and fun, and assuming you are in fact a human person who likes things, chances are you will enjoy this book. If you are a little reticent about the cutesy nature of this book let me assure you that The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is in no way a girl's comic. This book is for everyone and I promise you, you will not lose dude points or catch girl germs if you read it. If anything, you will catch awesome - an illness for which there is no known cure.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 7, 2015

    Holy crap, you guys, this book is hilarious. I can't express that enough. I laughed out loud almost constantly. I've said it before in my reviews, and I'll say it again: comedy is subjective. What might be funny to you might not be funny to me. But Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is quite possibly the funniest comic I have ever read " and we're only at issue #2! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Feb 5, 2015

    It is clear that the design of the story is not for the continuity and dramatic minded comic reader. Instead, fans of Ultimate Spider-man cartoon, Teen Titans GO! andMy Little Ponyare clearly who this book is trying to grab. If you're not a fan of the unconventional and you want your heroes brooding, treating the latest threat to the universe like the greatest one ever… well, there are plenty of other stories for you to check out. (The rest of us will be over here laughing and having a good time. Probably starting the Squirrel People are funnier than Spider People Club) (Oh, and don't forget to join Mew Club. I'm required to ask… asking you to join are rules 3-7.) Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Feb 6, 2015

    With art that's as playful as the writing, this book is full of whimsy and exuberance. It's a fun read that plays with the breadth of the Marvel universe cast and scale, all the while trying to balance some Silver Age-y adventure against typical college coming-of-age. At this point, while I might enjoy the comicbook for its playfulness, the character herself isn't at the center of the book's appeal, taking a backseat to the overall tone and caricature.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Feb 4, 2015

    All-in-all, SQUIRREL-GIRL is a fun and enjoyable book that's not really up my alley, but one that has the potential to bring in a lot of new readers to comics. The book is fun and has a great sense of humor and deals with a lot of things young people struggle with, but in a humorous light. However, the book is still new and the second half of it feels a little rushed to get to the next point and the moments of Doreen as Squirrel-Girl fall a tad flat compared to the first half of the book. Overall, I'd recommend giving this book a try though. It is a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Aaron Halverson Feb 5, 2015

    It's a fun book and I'm really looking forward to seeing what's next. I think Squirrel Girl will really shine as a cameo book. Yeah put some focus on her secret identity, her supporting cast seems pretty interesting, but throw in a different hero every month along with a different villain and I think the interaction between the two heroes would cause some sparks to fly. I can't wait to see if they have her team up with Howard the Duck, Captain Marvel, She Hulk, Kamala Khan's Ms. Marvel or any number of characters! Wolverine would be a fun interaction but he's dead now right? They had interesting chemistry in the Avengers book but that was a much more adult tone with a much more adult Squirrel Girl. I kind of prefer the colorful and bouncy Squirrel Girl myself and I really prefer this book. It's fast becoming a monthly highlight. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Feb 5, 2015

    It's hard not to get caught up in the charm, especially with Erica Henderson's art capturing a Saturday morning cartoon vibe, enhanced by Rico Renzi's clevery retro color palette. A bafflingly enjoyable book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Feb 9, 2015

    The action lags a little for an overlong joke about Squirrel Girl breaking into Avengers Tower, but North grabs the reader's attention again with Squirrel Girl's successful theft of some Iron Man armor. The final result is great and gets readers more invested in seeing Squirrel Girl use the armor right before the cliffhanger ending. Much of "Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" is transitional action to maneuver Squirrel Girl out of college and into space, but North and Henderson make both her superhero life and her regular college life worth following.

    Moargeek - Matt Lyons Feb 19, 2015

    The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl doesn't pull any punches in its second issue. Doreen Green goes from a minor Spider-Man foe last month to preparing to fight Galactus himself, and Ryan North manages to keep everything balanced perfectly. Read Full Review

    Henderson and Renzi keep this book looking amazing. Renzi's vibrant colors make the pages pop while Henderson packs every panel with so much detail and hilarious jokes. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Nov 27, 2015

    All told, "The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" #2 is a fun but not particularly memorable issue. North and Henderson deliver a reliably enjoyable, distinct story, but the pacing issues kept it from really grabbing me. Read Full Review
