That is the cover for our favorite Marvel comic book of all time, but you cannot get it yet. It will go on sale in three weeks. The scene will be burned into our collective consciousness forever. Squirrel Girl gives Wolverine a beatdown, in continuity.
Yes, that occurs in a real Marvel comic book. Squirrel Girl is now legend.
That is real. Official. Legitimate. Squirrel Girl is appearing in the upcoming Marvel Super Hero Squad Comic Combat game by THQ. The game interacts with the uDraw pad, so you can scribble all over the place to your heart’s content with Doreen Green.
She made it. Squirrel Girl is in a video game. Ahhh.
Squirrel Girl has never looked better. Ever. Don Hillsman II is one of the artists who did original art sketch cards for the Marvel Dangerous Divas set. We were lucky enough to snag that one!
For more sketch card goodness, click on over to the Sketchcard Saloon. You’ll be glad you did.
Yes my furry little fanatics, our wait is over. Just in time for the holidays, Mighty Fine Tees is slapping ink on fabric in the configuration that we have been dying to see for years.

Those are the New Avengers, and you can probably recognize most of them. Marvel Comics busted their myth wide open this weekend at the New York Comic Con by announcing the addition of Squirrel Girl to the title. Yes, Doreen Green has been selected as the nanny for Danielle, the daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. We can hardly believe it, but it is true.
Soon Squirrel Girl will be found in a mainstream Marvel title.
Aside from the fact that our bushy-tailed fave will now be rubbing magicks with Doctor Strange, perhaps the most thrilling aspect of this is simple.
Stuart Immonen will be drawing Squirrel Girl. ‘Nuff said.
The Squirrel Girl wave is about to crash into the mainstream of Marvel mythology. Yesterday at the New York Comic Con Brian Michael Bendis dropped a big bombshell for bushy-tailed freaks everywhere: Doreen Green is appearing in the New Avengers.
No, Harley Quinn is not crossing over. That little ditty is just a raucous romp by pennycandies on deviantart.com. The truth about Squirrel Girl’s new gig goes like this, straight from the Bendis’s mouth:
She will be chosen as the nanny for Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ baby, and she will be found to have “a hidden past with some of the members.”
It’s true, and Bendis confirmed it yesterday. He has “written his Squirrel Girl issue”, and she will soon be part of the New Avengers. I can’t think of a better piece of news for 10/10/10.
Squirrel Girl sketch card by George “Geo” Davis.
NYCC has some big news for MvC3. MODOK is going to be in the game. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will feature a creepy grin in a floating chair.
What does this mean for Squirrel Girl? Well, she did already beat the big-headed freak, so we do have historical precedence. Hmmm…
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.
The artist is Sanna U. The first card is Squirrel Girl. My mind is freed from its moorings. This is bliss.
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.
As always, I am using trading cards to illustrate my bliss. Today the joy is spinning like a Playstation disc inside my brain. We are a bit closer to the confirmation of Squirrel Girl in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and rumor has Mysterio swimming into the line-up alongside her.
There is a “leaked list” of the characters that will be included in the game. If this were accurate, all our dreams would come true simultaneously. Here is the Marvel roster that has been mentioned:
- Dr. Doom
- Iron Fist
- Iron Man
- Captain America
- Squirrel Girl
- Misty Knight
- Silver Samurai
Like all things that seem too good, this one began to taste bad right away. As soon as we started to celebrate, our hopes were slightly dashed. In Tokyo this morning, Capcom revealed two intense official truths. First, we will be fighting with X-23 as a playable character. Second, there will be a simple mode for noobish button smashers everywhere.
The sigh of relief we felt in knowing that the special moves will be easy to bust was instantly tempered by the fact that X-23 is not on the “leaked list”. Does that mean Squirrel Girl and Mysterio are out? Of course not. It could still be possible. The waiting continues, but at least we have leather jeans and female claws to groove on while we wait.
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.
