This book is so hilarious. Always multiple time when I’m reading this, I laugh and I share it with my boyfriend whom is less than appreciative of humor that plays on words.
The fight about databases slayed me. Seriously, I live in the tech world, and while I have no opinions about such things, I know many people who do. And have seen a few times where, even without Ratatoskr’s influence, I was worried there would be fistacuffs. “Databases are for stupid babies!” may be the best argument ever.
Or possibly Captain America calling Spider-Man a “giant diaper baby.” Anytime we get Steve Rogers handing out insults, I’m on board. Plus, I’m always a fan of the running gag about Squirrel Girl being that she can take down all the Avengers.
Since Parks & Rec ended, my world has had a noticeable lack of arguments about the best breakfast foods. Everyone knows it’s my great-grandma’s buttermilk pancake recipe, duh.
Odinson explaining how he doesn’t know who Thor is, but about how he assumes his mother wouldn’t kiss him like that was also pretty swell. Especially how Henderson drew Doreen’s and Tomas’ faces. Nancy being a super Asgardian fangirl and getting to go to Asgard may also be one of the best things. Cat Thor forever!
A bit interesting to see Ratatoskr turn the squirrels and the chipmunks against them. Seems a little counterintuitive considering that the animals kept Ratatoskr away.

OMG, this issue is beyond amazing. Every time I think North and Henderson can’t get any better, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl surpasses my expectations. Brilliant.
Nancy’s Cat Thor comic book in the comic book: brilliant. Who doesn’t love Cat Thor going against the Frost Giant Schnauzers. Oh, Nancy. Too cute by far.
Nancy hanging out in Asgard was the best. Love her coming around to the new Thor. Not to mention convincing Loki to help them out. Loki as Cat Thor made me laugh so much. This book is just bliss.
Loved to see them all team up in order to take down Ratatoskr. Even though Doreen runs out of web shooters. Good things she has such great friends. Not to mention the bifrost is pretty strong.
The ending where Doreen’s trying to teach them squirrel was the very best. Tippy-Toe won’t be denied! Loved it so much. Can’t wait for this title to come back (relaunch) whatever.
