That comic book was released into the world yesterday. It contains one of the most anticipated stories in history.
Squirrel Girl is coming home for the very first time.
As you can see, our hero has gotten her own gig. Her origin story and her unbeatable powers have never been explained. Now is the time.
Tom Fowler is the artist. This is a fresh prince moment, since Tom has never done Marvel before.
Doreen Green is the coolest character ever seen. She is an Avenger, and Tom Fowler is taking her places she has never been. Tune in tomorrow for Squirrel Girl homecoming spoilers. These are very exciting times.
In two short weeks X-Babies #1 will be popping up in comic book stores everywhere. That is the regular cover by Skottie Young. Are you ready to see the variant cover with the X-Babies as zombies by Humberto Ramos? Are you sure? Okay, don’t say I didn’t warn you…

We have breaking news.
Upper Deck will release the Marvel Superstars TCG, a new game based on the Marvel Universe as envisioned by the movies, in February. This will be the first time that the movies, including Iron Man, Hulk, Fantastic Four, the X-Men Trilogy, the Blade Trilogy and others, will interact with each other in a Marvel game.
A Starter Deck will be the first release, followed a few weeks later by the Booster Packs. Approximately 300 cards will be released in the first set.
Each player chooses to become a classic Marvel hero or villain, then constructs a team to defeat the opponent.
Upper Deck will be hosting demos using a beta version of the game at Gen Con this week.
This is a shock. It is the most thrilling curveball I can imagine for the future funfest to be called the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game. My heart just jumped out of my chest and landed on the Silver Surfer’s board, only to be grabbed by Anna Paquin and absorbed into nothingness.
What. A. Stunner.
That poignant portrait is by Taki Soma. It is owned by a collector named Guillaume, residing in France. Thanks to Marvel Masterpieces, Squirrel Girl really gets around.
I opened that comic and what did I see? Squirrel Girl herself, smiling at me.
It seems that Norman Osborn’s Dark Reign now includes the Great Lakes Avengers. Gravity has been sent back to the midwest. Does this mean even MORE Squirrel Girl next month? We sure hope so. Stay tuned for breaking news as it happens.
