I don't read comics or graphic novels very often so I'm not very well qualified to review them but I sure do love me some Squirrel Girl!

Not sure it's possible to read two graphic novels so different in tone back to back. Mood whiplash.
Much like Terry Pratchett, I love the asides/footnotes; that they can contain social commentary as well as funny randomness. This is the first comic volume I've read with this character and I'm really loving her. So light hearted while also being kind in message, and featuring good representation. #comicbooks #eveningreading #eveningread

Squirrel Girl is definitely my favorite superhero. I find her to be hilarious . Going back and seeing where she first appeared definitely put some things into perspective; she has changed so much since then.

blurb

Just starting this; looks like a lot of fun.

Love the little footnote asides (at the moment, about other Marvel heroes) which look like they were written by Squirrel Girl.

... and Deadpool's 'Guide to ...' cards (with his snarky asides)

... and the pages of 'text messages'

Interesting addition at the end, which looks like the original first ever Squirrel Girl story (though I'm not a fan of her depiction there)

A fun romp with a silly but apparently more-competent-than-she-looks superhero. I enjoyed getting to know the character and seeing her try to start college, while continuously having to save the day. The characters were strong and the art style was fun.

Squirrel Girl is a welcome break from reality these days. Every time I read a few panels, I find myself outright giggling and always feel better after.

#wondrouswednesday Definitely a squirrel theme going on here!

Apologies for the sweariness from those naughty grey and red squirrels!

There is only one book that could possibly describe me.... 😁🐿

I think all my friends and family are too scared to ask to borrow books as they know they have to be returned in a pristine condition. These days I buy extra copies of books I‘ve enjoyed (often from charity shops) and gift them rather than lending.

So much fun! I love a female superhero who is quirky, nerdy and, to quote the artist;"...I like to draw heartier super ladies, if their powers are mostly physical, because I feel like I shouldn't be able to take down a super hero by sitting on her. " About time I meet a super lady who is something other than the standardized babe norm. Squirrel Girl is very loveable, and I need to read more.

Caroline2 @squirrelbrain one for you Helen! 😉 3y

This book was a delightful surprise. I had thought for whatever reason that it would be too silly, but I purchased it anyway because I tend to enjoy North's sense of humor. It was the perfect amount of silliness! Filled with squirrel puns, absurd situations, and hilarious characters, each issue made me smile in a different way. The way that Squirrel Girl resolves all her major conflicts made me smile most though. I will pick up the next one soon!

This was a great cornucopia of Squirrel Girl comics! I loved reading every one of them including the newest ones at the end. Of course I'm dying to know what happens to Ratatoskr... guess I'll have to read the next volume to find out. And looooove the Deadpool cards!!! Spot on!

This was cute and fun, though not super engaging. I'll read the next one to see if more of a story gets going, since the first volume is often a lot of setup. My other gripe is that the retro stuff at the end of a lot of these Marvel volumes doesn't really do a whole lot for me- the art style (especially for Squirrel Girl) is very off-putting. 3.5/5⭐

@kaye A book and a cat, lol ❤️ #mogwai #catsoflitsy How are you? I got my doctor to say “booger” today. It cracked me up. I‘m sooo passive aggressive I didn‘t laugh till my belly ached till I got home. Dry nose. Nasal spray prescribed, lol. She said it so matter of factly too, kinda like she was dumbing things down for me but in a serious way. I am going to read this book now, I promise. Thanks again for your support!! ❤️❤️❤️

Squirrel girl and friends escape a room, deal with the police, Spider-Man, and the possibility of redemption and it is delightful. Then, THEN, there‘s a wonderful dialogue-less stand-alone where a ghost librarian (think ghost busters) is actually pretty cool. And just wants a quiet reading room.

So my name is Helen, but the squirrelbrain thing takes a bit longer to explain. I suffered from debilitating panic attacks for years, although not any more (but I‘m still a worrier). Years ago a relative was telling us they‘d had pest control out as they had squirrels in their loft and my husband said that‘s what I had, squirrels skittering about in my loft (head!).
It became an ‘injoke‘ between us, he used to say things like...cont in comments

squirrelbrain ‘I can see their fluffy tails hanging out of your ears‘ whenever I was fretting. 5y
squirrelbrain Now I have squirrel stuff all over the house and I don‘t mind telling (some) people about the squirrels in my head!🐿🐿🐿 5y
GondorGirl I love looking at your anxiety that way. It makes a lot of sense, plus it's a cute joke that probably helps take the edge off of some of your panicking. 5y

Funny story: my grandma (who was wonderful but also kind-of a nut) had a bunch of irrational fears that she tried to instill in me. Top of the list? Sciurophobia. She warned me that squirrels would “jump at my throat & never let go.” Needless to say, I have no trouble imagining Squirrel Girl as fearsome & unbeatable. I was pleased to find that she‘s also funny, awkward, strong, fashionable, righteous (in all its definitions) & relatable. LOVED it!

2BR02B If you're in the mood for similar reads, I'd recommend The Unstoppable Wasp, Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat!, or Chelsea Cain's Mockingbird. 5y
monalyisha @2BR02B I do have the first volume of Patsy Walker checked-out from the library, too. Thanks! 5y

“Obeying an unjust law is itself unjust.”

An apt quote for MLK Day.

(Also, please note the beyond funny “Purl Jam” poster. Oh, yeah. Squirrel Girl‘s roommate, Nancy Whitehead, is just as super-cool as Squirrel Girl herself. I appreciate the proliferation of strong women thus far.)

What was supposed to be a two hour drive home turned into a six hour nightmare. We had to get the truck towed, have two vans brought up from the shop, unload and reload all the stock, then finish the drive. On the upside- I finished the first Squirrel Girl book and adored it. And I came home to a bunch of book mail.
