Squirrel Girl Save the World from Galactus in THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #4!

THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #4 was released this week, featuring the moon-shattering fight-to-the-death between Squirrel Girl and Galactus the Planet-Eater.

Well, there was a resolution and Planet Earth survived. (Was there any doubt?) But there wasn't any fight to death.

The thing I enjoy about Squirrel Girl and this comic book is that, more often than not, our heroine finds effective ways to resolve conflicts with villains where she's way out of her league.

Like when she convinced Kraven the Hunter that he needs to stop obsessing over Spider-Man (and her squirrels!!) and instead head off to Monster Island and chase down some real prey!

This time around, she came out on top by bonding with Galactus:


And then hacking into his super-computer and figuring out the perfect alternate choice of planetary meals!

Later on, Squirrel Girl (dressed as civilian Doreen Green) learns that her roommate Nancy Whitehead has figured out her secret identity and, in the process, gained a great confidant!


THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #4 is written by Ryan North, penciled and inked by Erica Henderson, colored by Rico Renzi, and lettered by VC's Clayton Cowles; with special Trading Card art by Chris Giarrusso.
