    The majority of the book is a space adventure with Loki, Drax and the Silver Surfer, and it is a perfectly fine Squirrel Girl yarn. But that last story, a hyper-speed/time travel tale featuring the last series artwork of longtime artist Eric Henderson, is simply amazing.Squirrel Girl is a fantastic hero and her terrific series will survive Henderson's departure, but that doesn't mean I'm ever going to be happy about it.

    The last issue of this collection is strangely emotional. No one can convince me that Nancy and Doreen were not romantic life partners. It was a beautiful expression of love and companionship, masquerading as a silly, silly fun time

    One of the reasons I love Squirrel Girl so much is that while she can throw a punch with the best of them, beating people up is a last resort. There is always another way, usually by talking and coming to a common understanding and even, a lot of the time, becoming friends. Plus, she never disregards the smarts and abilities of her non-superhero friends. She and Nancy are all about supporting each other, calling each other out when they are wrong...

    I am sad that Erika Henderson is leaving Squirrel Girl.Squirrel Girl in Space! Not just space, Marvel's wacky cosmic SPAAAACE - possibly at its wackiest. In my head, the leader of the 73 planet coalition fleet to kill Silver Surfer is somehow related to Lying Cat from Saga.The long argument between Nancy and Doreen over not using force to stop/punish/extract revenge against bad guys is a tough one. I would have leaned into it whole-heartedly a ...

    I don't know what it is about these five issues, but Ryan was on point. The humor had me laughing at nearly every page and if I wasn't laughing I at least had a big goofy smile on my face.Also, issue 31 is probably one of my favorite standalone issues in recent memory. Just, really solid all around.

    I wish I could rate this a million stars! I absolutely LOVE SG & Nancy's friendship and old lady SG & Nancy are amazing!!!! Erica's art is beautiful and I'm so impressed by how she continually presents SG. Real to life. Perfection!

    Journey to the Forbidden Pla-Nut! Squirrel Girl, Tippy, and Nancy end up halfway across the universe on a planet under threat from…the Silver Surfer? But isn’t he a good guy? And then, in a final farewell issue to series artist Erica Henderson, Doreen and Nancy get stuck in hypertime!It’s taken a little while, but I think Unbeatable Squirrel Girl has managed to hit the sweet spot in terms of extended storylines, which I’ve always felt has...

    Sigh. I just love this book so much. The combo of Ryan North’s clever and silly plots with Erica Henderson’s fantastic art is just so completely perfect. Doreen Green AKA Squirrel Girl is not afraid to kick butts while eating nuts, but she always tries to compassion and reason first, engaging with her adversaries and resorting to violence only when appeals to their better nature or attempts to get at the root of the causes of their villainy f...

    Oh, Squirrel Girl. The only superhero who tries to talk out problems before punching. We need more superheros with kindness listed under their "strengths." Though, to be fair, SG's stories are much more fun-based than action-based, so it totally works. But, let's be honest, we're not going to see Captain America and Red Skull just "talking it out" any time soon. But still, it's a breath of fresh air to read a comic where even high stakes can be s...

    In a battle, Doreen and Nancy end up in hypertime and have to find their way back to normal time, and also Nancy and Tippy-Toe get squirrelnapped to an alien planet and everyone has to try and get them back. I am not a Loki fan generally, but I adore him in SQ and Ms Marvel, and Sorcerer Supreme Loki here is no exception. He gives Doreen a great outerspace costume, and says, "This is why you get a genderfluid demigod to be your fashion designer. ...

    Squirrel Girl continues to be one of the greatest comics coming out today. They just know how to use comic tropes, and characters I don't care for, and make them interesting. If you told me, "Silver Surfer is going to make a guest appearance!" Normally I would not care at all! He is just not a character I care much about what soever. But they manage to use him in a way that is unique and really funny. Same goes for some of the plot. Has a "time h...

    So... uh... the official description says this goes to issue 32. Which seems unlikely since that starts a new story. So I guess it'll only go to 31. Probably this changed with Erica Henderson's departure from the book on art. So I'll consider this done (yes, I'm reading individual issues.) Squirrel Girl continues to delight, by being optimistic and fun without feeling like it's trying too hard or forced. This storyline, in particular, ends up bei...

    Despite the majority of this volume being focused on an okay arc, this volume gets 4 stars simply for including a fantastic Issue 31. I was stunned to see the hashtag #byeerica on Squirrel Girl's normal Twitter feed because I honestly don't keep up with comics news to avoid spoilers. Issue 31 is just a beautiful yet bittersweet farewell for Erica Henderson and her art style which helped to make Squirrel Girl one of my favorite comics to follow. H...

    I love this series, even though it takes so long to read them due to the footnotes and letter sections. More bang for your buck I guess. I'm interested to see what this will be like with the new artist going forward. Erica's art style is kind of quirky, which fit this title, but I won't miss the overbites.

    Somehow the best volume yet? Including a pisstake of the 'Legacy' event, a trip to space, fake Silver Surfers, a hypertime story that made me have Serious Emotions, and a handover to a new artist. And yeah, sure, it's different, maybe jarring. But they've got the right sort of loose energy to be a good fit. Here's to the past, and the future, of the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

    I've been reading a bunch of books without writing reviews as I go. Sorry!SG is still at the top of Marvel comics today. This volume deals largely with a small group of Surfer Bro scam artists. Also we get to see more of Loki being a fanboy of Nancy Whitehead, and an advanced planet of squirrels!

    I know I always rate the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl volumes 5 Stars (because they are a gift), but wow does this one knock it out of the park. The last issue is incredible and I don’t even have the words to explain how perfect it was. And then for it to be Erica Henderson’s last issue 😭

    4 star story arc in space which is fun and then a 10,000 star standalone at the end for Erica's last issue which left me sobbing and shipping it forever. Probably my favourite single issue so far of USG or anything else.

    So good!!! The arc that’s in the first four issues here is really funny, and the last issue is [clutches heart]!(view spoiler)[I laughed so hard at Space Abraham Lincoln. Maybe the hardest I’ve laughed since...Cat Thor?!? (hide spoiler)]

    Ok, so nothing can beat Volume 7 (Squirrel Girl + dinosaurs + so many Jurassic Park jokes), but volume 8 is still pretty darn good. I'm only slightly devastated to learn that Erica Henderson won't be illustrating Squirrel Girl anymore. Slightly.

    The Silver Surfer storyline was silly but enjoyable. I didn’t expect the one-off at the end of the book to be quite so packed with feels.

    Squirrel Girl in space was a lot of fun, but I think I got some dust in my eyes while reading Erica Henderson's last issue...
