Why you should read The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl

The shelves at your local comic shop are packed with comic titles, your weekly purchases probably contain some of the major titles from DC and Marvel, maybe even the Walking Dead. This post is about why you should be buying The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, and yes I bought my copy already.
 Doreen Green is a mutant, like the X-Men, who has the power of a squirrel and can talk to her fury compatriots. She fights the strongest of the Marvel Villains and always win.
Humor is the focus of Squirrel Girl which sees Doreen start college and fight Kraven the Hunter.
Other Marvel heroes and villains are set to appear in future issues.
