Check Out Doreen's Squirrel-Skin Coat in UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #3!

I'm behind on my comic books. I finally finished THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #3, which actually came out a couple weeks back. Last issue, Doreen Green (AKA Squirrel Girl) acquired one of Iron Man's extra suits so that she could fly to the moon and single-handedly defeat Galactus. Except that her ascent into space gets interrupted by supervillain Whiplash, which is where things ended.

This issue features Squirrel Girl's triumphant battle against Whiplash... (C'mon! Don't complain about spoilers! The book's called THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL, not THE BEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL!!) She then learns about a local bank robbery where one of the hostages is her roommate Nancy Whitehead and finds herself trying to figure out how to defeat the robbers while getting to the moon in time to defeat Galactus!

She then pulls a trick out out of her nonexistent hat and manages to take out the robbers wearing a suit made out of intertwined squirrels! You gotta check this out!

The robbers don't know how to react. They prepared for opposition from folks like Wolverine or Captain America or the Hulk. Nobody warned them about a giant mass of squirrels!

Needless to say, Doreen saves the day and still has time to race to the moon just in time to meet up with Galactus the Planet Eater. We'll have to wait for next issue to see how that works out!

THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #3 is written by Ryan North, penciled and inked by Erica Henderson, colored by Rico Renzi, and lettered by VC's Clayton Cowles. Seriously, this is one of Marvel Comics' unsung treasures! You really need to pick up a copy if you haven't already!
