That is the prize possession of my card collection. George “Geo” Davis created it as a commission and it was approved by Marvel Comics as an official entry into the magnificent mythos of Squirrel Girl. She is quickly becoming much more than just a cult hero on the interwebs.
Squirrel Girl is snowballing.
Yes, she was cosplayed at the San Diego Comic Con.
No, you cannot buy an official action figure yet. That does not, however, stop fans from making the dream a reality.
That is Peter Parker with his new girlfriend Chat. She appears in the Spider-Man Marvel Adventures comic book series and she talks to animals of all types, including a bunch of furry little tree rodents. She has a mystery sister that will be revealed in issue #8, and Squirrel Girl was mentioned by name in the Marvel Adventures Universe just this week. Stay tuned, it looks like the webhead will soon be seen with Doreen Green.
The Chibi crew can claim the most meaty and serious layer of the Squirrel Girl snowball, since Super Hero Squad featured a rumored romance between War Machine and our nutty hero on an actual television show. Add the fact that the designers of the Super Hero Squad Online video game have promised to include Squirrel Girl in the line-up, and you have bouncing baby bliss of the biggest kind.
We will leave you today with that most beautiful portrait, by the incomparable Emily. Squirrel Girl’s fame is growing as she rolls deeper and deeper into the pop history books of official Marvel Comics canon. Jump on quick, this is going to be nuts.
Marvel Adventures of Spider-Man is widely recognized as the best Spidey title in the world at this moment in time. For one thing, it allowed the madness of Skottie Young to whip out that wicked cool cover for #59. Here is the original drawing.
Aside from the intensity of the art and the quality of the storytelling, this book has introduced a sweet new character into the mythology of the Marvel Universe. Her name is Sophia Sanduval, and she is better known as Chat.
As you can see, Chat talks to animals. She is constantly surrounded by a flock of feathers and fur. This delicious dolittle also dropped an intriguing hint recently that may open the zoological possiblity of a Squirrel Girl appearance in Marvel Adventures of Spider-Man.
Chat’s sister is three issues away. Will she be revealed as Doreen Green? Will Squirrel Girl finally have a featured role in a major ongoing series? A little bird told me maybe, but only time will tell.
That is a truly amazing new Tarot card created by the magnificent Katie Cook. It will be part of the Superpunch deck. In case you don’t know, Superpunch is one of the coolest spots on Earth. Check it out at your earliest convenience.
Katie has made a major name for herself drawing the sweetest Chibi superheroes ever inked. Today we will showcase a whole slew of mutants that have never looked better in their mythological little lives. Starting with Squirrel Girl, of course.
Those are original art sketchcards. That particular medium allows a great deal of artistic license, such as Doreen Green seen as part of the X-Men team. We will finish with some of the more traditional members, I hope your eyes can handle this much joy.
Michael Saumure is also known as halfbakedone and he has bitmapped the best CGI Squirrel Girl we have ever seen.
For The Ween!
That an amazing piece of work by Tony Parker. You can click on it to make it bigger. It is being donated to the Hero Initiative project to help comic book artists in need. I can’t think of a more worthy cause or a more exciting image. Especially since one of the cards features our favorite hero!
Tony Parker packs a powerful punch, here are a few more examples for your visual pleasure. Enjoy.
In a glorious antithesis to the historical significance of yesterday’s date, we have a whole new plane flying into Manhattan this morning. One of its passengers is Doreen Green, also known as Squirrel Girl.
We do not know quite yet what our hero is doing in New York City. We have, however, been blessed by the original black line pages of her appearance in I Am An Avenger #1, thanks to the artist Tom Fowler himself.
Tom runs a beauty of a blog that behooves you to visit:
As for me, I am heading back to the paradise of Central Park in black and white with Squirrel Girl.
Spoilers Galore today. If you don’t want to know what happens with Squirrel Girl in the inaugural issue of I Am An Avenger, escape now!
That is the cover of issue #1. I Am An Avenger seeks to introduce the full expanse of the Avengers stable over the course of five installments. Squirrel Girl is included right off the bat, and she is flying “home” to Manhattan. We never knew that she considered Central Park her own personal love grotto, and it makes for some spectacular Tom Fowler scribbles.
One thing that is perfectly captured in her two-page story? The bliss of being Squirrel Girl. You can see it in her face the entire time. She is joy incarnate, and it shows.
There are a whole lotta roots exposed in this little ditty, as it seems that Doreen Green’s crush on Iron Man is being rekindled. Maybe he will finally let her partner up?
It ends way too soon. It teases like mad. Squirrel Girl is bringing her furry tail to New York City for future features in the Avengers titles, and we will be pulling our hair out in anticipation of her next appearance all over again.
