8 Times THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL Made Me Lose My Nuts

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

From the day it was realeased in early 2015, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl has consistently made me laugh harder than any other comic out at the moment. And while I am super happy and thankful it’s returning when the All-New All-Different Marvel titles launch in October, I really miss Doreen, Nancy, and Tippy-Toe and laughing at every single issue Ryan North and Erica Henderson put out. So to tide us over, here are the moments from each issue that have made me laugh the hardest. This list is completely subjective and arbitrary and it was such a joy to come up with because it meant I had to read all eight issues over again. If you are as nuts about this series as I am, tell me what panels would’ve made your list, and if you haven’t picked up the first trade, I hope these snippets convince you.

Doreen rewrites the lyrics to the Spider-Man theme song and the iconic “eat nuts and kick butts” tagline is born.
