Unbeatable Squirrel Girl

Seven Great Comics About Women Defeating Monsters
The brave hero. The wicked villain. These archetypes, and the tales of their struggles, lie at the heart of the comic book medium, providing the basis for many of our favorite stories. While some may scoff at these aspirational stories, we know that they can be empowering, uplifting, and even inspiring. That's often especially true when the hero at the heart of the story is a woman. When women slay monsters, the stories are never just about protecting the kingdom and preserving the status quo. When women slay monsters, they challenge their own oppression, they overturn expectations, and they seize control of the future. When women slay monsters, they change the world. These are some of our favorite comic book stories that celebrate that idea.
'Thunderbolts' And 'Squirrel Girl' Anniversaries In 2017
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and Thunderbolts will both celebrate major anniversaries in 2017 with oversized specials that bring back the characters' original creators to work alongside their current teams. It's both a pretty cool way to observe these anniversaries, and a sign of just how much Marvel today is tied to what was going on in the '90s!
The Best Marvel Comics For Young Readers [Kids' Comics]
Today, we're looking at recent offerings from Marvel Comics that cater specifically to younger readers. Over recent years there's been a significant sea-change at Marvel that has allowed more young adult, kid-friendly, and inclusive titles to spring up and carve a corner for themselves, and we've chosen six of the very best for the kids and teens in your life.
The Superpower That Makes Squirrel Girl Truly Unbeatable
Ryan North, Erica Henderson and Rico Renzi’s The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is one of the best superhero comics being published today, but it’s also one of the best that fall loosely under an all-ages banner and is enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Everyone can enjoy Doreen Green’s adventures and her positive outlook on life, and the comic itself is spreading a positive message through Squirrel Girl’s empathy and how she approaches and interacts with the supposed super villains of the comic.
New Marvel Cosplay Cover Feature Squirrel Girl, Gwenpool
Last October, Marvel embraced the creative world of cosplay with an awesome line of Cosplay Variants featuring dedicated fans geared up as their favorite superhero, gracing the cover of that character's comic. It seems like the line was so popular that it's getting a second outing, as Marvel has unveiled the first look at this year's round of Cosplay Variants, debuting in stores from September.
Give 'Em Elle: Koi Boi and Trans Representation
Koi Boi, a young Marvel superhero who’s been around for about a year, is transgender. Specifically, he’s trans-masculine. Most likely he’s a trans man, but since he hasn’t specified, I don’t want to push him into a binary that he may not identify with. If you don’t know who Koi Boi is, you’ve been missing out on Ryan North and Erica Henderson’s The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, and that’s a shame because it’s a great book. Koi Boi is an Asian American college student named Ken Shiga, but that’s about all we know about his life. Except that he’s transgender, and apparently hasn’t had top surgery, because he wears a binder. But to know that, you have to really be paying attention, because nobody’s said it in the comic yet.
Women & Kids Are Key To Marvel's Success, Says David Gabriel

In a new interview with Marvel's senior vice president of print, sales and marketing, David Gabriel, the executive talked about the company's shift towards women readers, as well as the importance of original graphic novels and Deadpool, as contributing factors towards Marvel's success.
