New York Review of Books Review

North and Henderson's collaboration may, in fact, be the first post-Beaton superhero comic book: There are traces of her sensibility scattered all over it. (To be fair, Beaton probably picked up a thing or two from North's "Dinosaur Comics.") Introduced in 1991 by Spider-Man's co-creator Steve Ditko, Squirrel Girl - a cheerful teenager named Doreen Green with "the proportional speed and strength of a squirrel" - had until now been a running joke. North and Henderson's take on her is delightful, a lighter-than-air fantasy that leverages the character's ridiculousness into tender hilarity. North's story tacks straight into the convolutions of Marvel's superhero universe, with its rogues' galleries and cosmic forces (the godlike Galactus is coming to devour the Earth, and only the squirrels know about it!) - but Squirrel Girl herself is untouched by melodrama. She sometimes has to kick "bad guuuuuys' evil butts," in the words of a theme song she sings; still, she prefers creative, nonviolent solutions, generally involving nuts. And Henderson's cartoony linework draws out the comedic potential in everything from a collegiate crush to a battle suit made of living squirrels.
