marvel logoMarvel has given the green light for The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl comics series. The first book starring Squirrel Girl (a.k.a. Doreen Green) will be released in January 2015.

Here’s more from Entertainment Weekly: “In her first appearance, she defeated Doctor Doom. Since then, she’s taken on Wolverine, Deadpool, and freaking Thanos—and she’s never lost. Not a bad track record for a superhero–especially considering that the superhero in question is Squirrel Girl, a Marvel Comics back-bencher who’s probably best known for being Luke Cage’s nanny.”

Writer Ryan North and artist Erica Henderson will collaborate on this project together. Henderson created a cover for the first issue that includes appearances from The HulkThorCaptain America, and other heroes. Veteran comics creator Art Adams designed a variant cover.
