Squirrel Girl

This rarely used Marvel heroine made her debut in the short lived series below. Until recent years Squirrel Girl was a permanent resident of the D-List hero's club but a sexy costume can do wonders for almost any character. The thing that’s really cool about Doreen is her ability to control Squirrels and the immense power it gives her. Now she has her own title and is fast becoming a cosplay favorite at conventions around the country.

FIRST APPEARANCE

Marvel Super Heroes 8 was once the definition of quarter-bin crap. Most wouldn’t line their lion cages with this comic but a few decades passed and everything changed. Will Murray created the offbeat hero and Comic Legend Steve Ditko supplied the art. This comic now demandes 20-50 ungraded depending on condition.

SECOND APPEARANCE(S)

Squirrel Girl did not appear again until she was included in a 2099 satire article titled “Squirrel Girl 2099.” It would be many years before she blasted back on the scene with victories over Deadpool, Galactus, M.O.D.O.K. and others!

FIRST COVER

Ok technically issue 1 of the GLA is her first cover but we only get to see half of her body and it’s not a very clear image. But this cover is a dynamic and creepy masterpiece!

FIRST CHRISTMAS COSTUME

The Christmas version of her classic costume is just as popular as her regular duds and is often worn by cosplayers at cons. Such displays have only helped make this an undervalued publication.

No Squirrel Girl here but I felt it appropriate to include the only Archie Comic I own and it’s thanks to my love for Doreen Green!
