Squirrel Fight Tonight!


The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #7

Well, everyone in New York has gone a little fight-crazy. Squirrel Girl, along with her roommate Nancy and her fellow animal-themed crimefighters Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boi have been dealing with people fighting in the streets, in classrooms, and everywhere else. The soon realize that Girl Squirrel is actually Ratatoskr, a Norse squirrel god who specializes in provoking people with slanderous gossip. Doreen figures they should ask Thor for help and takes everyone to Avengers Mansion — where everyone is arguing! And so, to keep everyone from arguing and saying mean things to each other, Squirrel Girl spends less than 30 seconds beating up Spider-Man, Captain America, Steve Rogers, Hawkeye, and Black Widow. As one does!

Luckily, Cap’s phone has Thor on speed-dial — the Odinson and Thor are in a cafe trying to break up fights with people who are arguing pancakes vs. waffles, but they know all about Ratatoskr. While they and Nancy go to Asgard to prepare a cage to hold the rodent god, Squirrel Girl, Chipmunk Hunk, and Koi Boi battle Ratatoskr — but can even Squirrel Girl’s legendary abilities handle the lying squirrel’s monstrous might?

Verdict: Thumbs up. There is so much going on in this comic. It’s amazing they can fit all of this into one issue. It’s funny, it’s exciting, it’s a little bit scary — and we even get to see a hint of Doreen’s fabled badassery.


Giant-Size Little Marvel: A vs. X #2

It’s more cartoon fighting between the pint-sized Avengers and X-Men! First, they fight over dodge ball, then they fight over who’s going to be friends with the new kids, Zachary and Zoe.

Verdict: Thumbs up. Skottie Young’s cartooning is just outstanding. Should I feel bad that I don’t recognize Zachary and Zoe? I assume I should know who they are…
