    Well, that's it for Ryan North's epic run on Squirrel Girl and, while I've had a bit of a love/hate relationship with the book over the last few years, there's a part of me that's very sorry to see it go. North has really established SG as a character who looks for solutions other than violence and deserves accolades for that alone. This final volume gives Squirl Grl a final bow she can be proud of and his message to the readers about the end of the book, rather aptly delivered by Galactus no les Well, that's it for Ryan North's epic run on Squirrel Girl and, while I've had a bit of a love/hate relationship with the book over the last few years, there's a part of me that's very sorry to see it go.

This final volume gives Squirl Grl a final bow she can be proud of and his message to the readers about the end of the book, rather aptly delivered by Galactus no less, was very poignant... if totally out of character for Galactus, but this fast-and-loose approach to continuity and characterisation sums up the entire attitude of the series, so I'll let it go. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next for Squirrel Girl, a character I've loved since her first appearance, long before North and Co. turned her into what she is today.

Our time was short, but I will always remember you. These issues were an excellent, emotional way to end Ryan North et al's work on these stories. Those pages with Galactus? Man, I teared up big time. Now I want to go back and reread from the very beginning again.

    I've been reading this since issue 1 (the first one) was released. It's been such an amazing ride, getting reintroduced to this character I didn't know much about and learning all about her and her amazing friends and reading her adventures. Ryan, Erica and Derek made this book what it is. And that is a beacon of positvity and love in the Marvel U and *spoiler* like Galactus said, we'll always have this to look back on. It will forever be here. Great, now I'm getting emotional again.

    Read as singles. Since issue #1. I am going to miss this book; it is, and has always been, something special. Also, if there's a next creative team, all I ask for is *slams fist on table* CANON Doreen/Nancy.

    A fitting end to a great run by North and company. Doreen's unforgettable as she is unbeatable, and remember to eat nuts and kick butts, friends.

    I’ll miss this series. It was unexpectedly a lot of fun, always clever, funny and ridic. Though I was skeptical when they changed artists (and also its “look”) for the last 18 issues, the title still retained its charm and spunk. Cheers to trying something different and pulling it off for 50-60 issues.

    I read this a week ago and forgot to log it on Goodreads because, well, it's an interesting time we're living through. The world is bleak and sad and now Squirrel Girl is over, which means it's even more sad. But you know what? I'm so grateful for this quirky, punny, joyful book, and I look forward to rereading it over and over again. Until next time, Doreen Green

    Thank you Ryan, Erica, Derek and the rest of the Squirrel Girl team for this amazing comic. For the past few years, this book has been a constant joy in my life. I laughed (a lot), cried (ALSO A LOT), and had so much fun reading about Doreen and her pals’ adventures month after month.

    You know how you watch one of those TV shows that has ten seasons or more and you get really invested in all the characters; when it's over you feel like you have been abandoned by all of your friends? That's how I feel after finishing this last volume of Squirrel Girl.

    I was a fan of Squirrel Girl before this series. That is not typed in a "I liked her before she was cool sense." It's just that from the first point I heard of the existence of Squirrel Girl I was in. I was sold, I was hooked. I got the Great Lakes Avengers comics, and a few other small appearances she made. Then I found out she was getting her own solo comic, and with Ryan North who I loved from his online Dinosaur comics. I was excited, this would be great! And it WAS.

It has consistently been an amazing series that made Squirrel Girl very easy to adore. The creative team fleshed out her character, hipped up her attire, gave her new friends. And then new enemies, who quickly became new friends. I am a pessimist at heart, but the thing is I don't want to be. Squirrel Girl is who I want to be. There are room for all sorts of heroes in comics, but I feel like deep down fundamentally heroes are there to give us hope. Doreen does that in spades. So here we are at the end of her comic. Of course in comics there are never really ends. I am hopefully someday she'll be back, maybe as part of a new team (I'd love to see her team up with Nadia Van Dyne some day) or maybe some other creative team will get a chance to put their spin on a new solo comic. Bottom line is what was done with this comic was incredible. It's hard to see it end but in an era where a lot of Marvel comics struggle to get to a "Volume 2" trade paperback, Squirrel Girl made it to Vol 12. It lasted a long time because it was so good. And this conclusion is a great end to a great series. Things come full circle. It makes me glad there was a comic like this around, and I hope some day, in some fashion, there are more to come.

    Dear Marvel: When you cancelled "Spider-Man/Deadpool," "The Unstoppable Wasp and the Agents of GIRL," and "Mr. and Mrs. X," I jokingly said that you'd better not cancel "The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl." It was a joke because this seemed like one of your most popular, all-ages series. Literally all ages: An adult could enjoy the innocence as much as a child could enjoy the good-natured adventures. And now... what do you do? You cancel this series.

Why get invested if my favorites are going to get kicked to the curb? Sincerely, One Very Sad Fan *sigh* Oh well, I guess I can hope that Squirrel Girl is just getting a new title. There seemed to be hints of that in this graphic. Still, as far as a farewell book goes, this one hit everything: epic battle, funny moments, and a return of favorite characters. (Except Loki, which was kind of a bummer since he's on the cover...?) Ah well: Obviously if you've stuck with Squirrel Girl all this time, you'll want bid her goodbye in this excellent story. A good read, but a bittersweet read, too.

    Ryan North ends the series on his own terms, and manages to bring all his talent to bear on it. While perhaps not as funny as some of the other collections, it definitely has some emotional impact. We get some massive facedowns between heroes and villains, although things resolve with a very literal Deus Ex Machina (which is explicitly called out as such, so I'll definitely allow it). The final issue is very metatextual, basically spending half of the issue helping readers accept that this is th Ryan North ends the series on his own terms, and manages to bring all his talent to bear on it.

The final issue is very metatextual, basically spending half of the issue helping readers accept that this is the end (in a way that also fits the story). It's a sweet series of moments and definitely an appropriate end to the series. Derek Charm's art is definitely up to the task of capturing the various and sundry characters, and some of the bonus items are great (and the letters pages are especially poignant this time). While it's not the strongest volume of the series, it is doing a lot of work and provides a very appropriate capstone for what has definitely been my favorite Marvel series. This (and every volume in the series) is highly recommended to anyone, whether they think they're comic fans or not - even if they aren't, they might be after reading this. It's not genre-expanding like Sandman or Watchmen, but it is a series that perfectly embodies the first part of "Comic Book" while also providing an optimistic and enticing worldview. With loads of humor, a surprising amount of emotional heft, and a number of successful experimental issues, you can't go wrong with the series.

    It's all come down to this - Squirrel Girl and her friends against Melissa Morbeck and all of Doreen's enemies. Four issues to finish it all off. And boy, are they four issues. There are some tears in here, I won't lie to you. The conversation between Doreen and Galactus in the penultimate issue is like a punch in the fucking face, because it's so well crafted that the double entendre of it all is utterly perfect.

Everything, everyone, and the kitchen sink are back to round everything out, and it all ends in the best three pages of Squirrel Girl comics you'll ever read. Derek Charm's on top form on art, and Erika Henderson returns for two brilliant pages, as well as two panels that serve as her goodbye to Doreen that will have you sobbing all over again. Squirrel Girl. Kicks butts, eats nuts, steals hearts. <3 Doreen, see you again soon.

    This is it. The last trade of "The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" (at least, until Marvel comes to its senses and decides that, yes, the world needs USG more now than ever). Conveniently enough, the four issues that comprise this trade (47-50) are a four-part story that has the return of her greatest foe (sorry not sorry, Dr Doom, but Melissa Morbeck is a bigger threat to her than you are at your most ambitious), all of her foes teaming up to take Doreen out, all of her friends and ex-foes teaming up This is it.

They did a fantastic job of wrapping up the series while leaving the door open for her return. I am going to miss her, I'm going to miss the social media recaps at the beginning of every issue, and I'm going to miss Ryan North's bottom-of-the-page commentary which is just as funny as the pictures-with-words are. A fantastic end to a fantastic series.

    Okay, Squirrel Girl may not have the most epic stories in terms of scale or scope, but she does have some of the most epic characters in terms of heart and rich development over the course of this series. And it's nice that Ryan North got to see this through for the final volume and made sure that Squirrel Girl was as Squirrel Girl as she could possibly be. And for that, we had to bring together all of her villains from across the run of the series who try to deny her the power of friendship in Okay, Squirrel Girl may not have the most epic stories in terms of scale or scope, but she does have some of the most epic characters in terms of heart and rich development over the course of this series.

And for that, we had to bring together all of her villains from across the run of the series who try to deny her the power of friendship in order to beat her and ultimately kill her but of course it is still through friendship that she sees things through in the end. This remains to be a unique title that really fleshed out what started out as a sort of a joke at Squirrel Girl's expense and further empowered her with Computer Science geekery and a very different approach to dealing with adversaries and antagonists big and small.

    I am going to miss this series. I had it on my pull list but fell behind in reading it because I was dreading the War of the Realms tie in. Silly me. Anyway, this volume, like all past volumes was funny, optimistic and filled with great art. Erica Henderson makes a small cameo page which was a nice salute to the comic's beginnings; Derek Charm continues to work his magic. I will happily read any book with art by either of them.

    Last volume, unfortunately. I'm really going to miss my regular doses of Doreen's sunny nature and faith in the better nature of people. At the same time, this really did feel like a natural conclusion for this version of the character. I hope that any future writers who use her will keep her as the girl who could befriend Galactus. She just wouldn't be Squirrel Girl otherwise.

    A fantastic end to a fantastic series. I will miss Doreen and the whole team and the little author comments at the bottom of the pages. The story was just as fun and adventure filled as all the others, but the ending was so heart felt and emotional. Good vibes and friendship get Squirrel Girl through this story and it couldn't of come at a better time!

    I'm very sad to see The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl end, but it really does end on a high note that synthesizes so many of the characters and themes threaded through these 1000+ pages. This is the best of the Derek Charm era and one of the better stories overall.

    I finished the final The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl collection & am emotionally compromised. 2020 already seems like it could use as much Squirrel Girl as possible. This is a most optimistic comic book. One of the takeaways of the book is “Don’t be sad it’s over; be glad it happened!” So even if civilization is irreparably destroyed, at least we won’t be left hanging on how TUSG wraps up. https://mattthecatania.wordpress.com/...

    Marvel's best book while it was running comes to a close at its "showrunner"'s hand. Henderson even came back for some of it! Moving and funny in expected manner, what a gift this run was. The rest of the Marvel U should treat it as hard canon.

    A bittersweet end for one of the best runs of a Marvel comic book ever. I wonder when we will next see something that reconstructs what we think of with superhero comic books, and when we can see something where so many problems are not resolved with punching.
