Proving that Marvel can make good decisions, today it was announced at C2E2 that Doreen Green, the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, would be getting her own Original Graphic Novel (OGN) in October by Ryan North and Erica Henderson, the regular writer and artist on The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.
Here is the full solicitation:
THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL BEATS UP THE MARVEL UNIVERSE! OGN
Written by Ryan North
Art and cover by Erica Henderson
Proof that we’re living in the best of all possible worlds: THERE’S GONNA BE A SQUIRREL GIRL GRAPHIC NOVEL!
It’s a stand-alone adventure that’s both great for new Squirrel Girl readers, and also for people who ALREADY know about how she can talk to squirrels and also punch really well!
Behold: a story so HUGE it demanded a graphic novel! A story so NUTS that it incorporates BOTH senses of that word (insanity AND the weird hard fruit thingies) (they’re fruits, did you know that?) (I didn’t until I looked them up just now, so looks like we’re all learning science from this solicit text for a comic book!)
Squirrel Girl has defeated Thanos, Galactus, and Doctor Doom. TWICE. But in this all-new graphic novel, she’ll encounter her most dangerous, most powerful, most unbeatable enemy yet: HERSELF.
Specifically, an evil duplicate made possible through mad science (both computer and regular) as well as some Bad Decisions. In other words, SQUIRREL GIRL BEATS UP THE MARVEL UNIVERSE!
This means that we’re getting an awesome Original Graphic Novel featuring an Evil Twin of Squirrel Girl in addition to the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure issue coming in April. That’s nuts. But in a good way.
