The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Issue 2

Things just got super nuts in Doreen Green’s life, and not in the “surrounded by piles of acorns” way.


Also, these colors?! Rico Renzi, you are a god among colorists.

One day, Doreen is just laying in bed, sleeping, when a big friggin’ crash sends her, her bed, and Tippy Toe back in time, all the way to the 1960’s! She rummages through a donation bin in attempt to fit in fashion wise, but how on earth did this happen?! Well guess who is gunna figure it out?

To be honest, it’s Nancy. Girl has her shit figured out, and it’s awesome. She first tries to talk to Doreen’s parents, then the school, and then Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boy, and has no luck. Ya know why? Because since Doreen was sent back in time, no one knows who she is, because she doesn’t exist. What the heck.



Guess how Nancy knows that? Because Doreen is a smart cookie and happens to be in the time when they started building the building that they live in, and makes a lil’ note to Nancy, hides it in a brick, and puts an acorn on it. Nancy finds it, and is updated on the situation (and probably taken aback by the silly things good ol’ SG writes), and gets to work.


So Nancy does some super powered research in hopes of finding out who would take her friend and roomie away from her, and finds that it may be Tony Stark. So she heads over to Stark’s building and of course he won’t see her.

Back in the 1960’s, Doreen has found another young woman in her exact situation; like, scary exact. This girl is Doreen’s age, went to the same school, was in the same program, and is crazy thrown off by being kidnapped into the past. Realizing that there may be more like them, Doreen puts out a newspaper ad full of words like”Hashtag,” and “Selfie” in hopes of getting the attention of other people in the same situation.


Nancy’s hella grumped up with this situation, but becomes even more so when a giant Doctor Doom comes out of nowhere to terrorize. I think we just found out who’s behind this “sending young computer science lady students back in time” business.


I think my favorite thing about this issue was the clothing. Doreen was really killing it with her cute clothes and Nancy is always on her A Game. I’m really glad that these ladies show off how rad their fashion sense is, instead of just wearing the same thing all the time (thank you Erica Henderson for giving them wonderful outfits all the time and making me want to be them even more).


Of course it’s awesome and you should read it, and I can’t wait to read issue 3 and find out what the heck the idea is behind this scheme!
