Reviews The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Vol. 8

  • Rod Brown
    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.

    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 ...

    Squirrels in spacee, check.However, the 31st issue is not only my favourite Squirrel Girl, it’s also one of my favourite single issues ever.

    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...

    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...

    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.
  • Laura
    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 😭
  • Amelia
    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.
  • Simone
    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.
  • Alex
    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.
  • Loki
    A delight from start to finish, which had me laughing out loud every fourth or fifth page. The most fun book in a series that's never not fun.

  • Jon
    This fires on all cylinders for me. Clever without being overly silly, and with some dramatic tension.
  • Ed
    The Pla-Nut / Silver Surfer arc isn't as good as the previous Squirrel Girl stories, but it's still pretty fun and has some great art from Erica Henderson. Issue 31 is a standalone story that is very sweet and sad. It's a real high point for Henderson to leave on.
