CELEBRATING 50 ISSUES OF SQUIRREL GIRL!
• It’s the 50TH ISSUE of THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL! That’s right: this issue – #42 – is our 50th!
• It says #42 on the cover, but that’s only because we had eight issues, and then a second #1 in our first year, although this of course doesn’t count the OGN (SQUIRREL GIRL BEATS UP THE MARVEL UNIVERSE), which is another five issues of story, which would put us at… issue #55? This is getting complicated. Anyway!
• By a certain way of counting, it’s our 50TH ISSUE of THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL!
• And to celebrate, we’re doing a stand-alone story in which she takes on none other than… KANG THE CONQUEROR. It’s a battle across space AND time as Kang attacks three distinct eras of Doreen!
• And it’s not just Kang who is joining us for this celebration! Original UNBEATABLE artist Erica Henderson is joining series regular Derek Charm, along with Naomi Franquiz!
• THIS IS A REALLY GOOD ISSUE AND WE’RE SUPER BIASED BUT WE THINK YOU SHOULD ORDER IT, THANKS.

• In the past months, Squirrel Girl has battled Kraven, rescued NYC from supernatural silence, kinda-maybe died and also fought Skrulls! So now it’s time for a nice break…which is why in THIS issue, Squirrel Girl does nothing but watch public domain movies on television!
• That’s right! She just sits there! You can kinda see the TV screen over her shoulder in a couple of panels, but that’s it! It’s really quiet and relaxing and nothing much happens.
• …
• …THAT IS, UNTIL NANCY WHITEHEAD AND ANOTHER ESU STUDENT BY THE NAME OF PETER PARKER ARE TAKEN HOSTAGE BY A SUPER VILLAIN INTENT ON PROVING THAT SHE’S THE SMARTEST PERSON ON THE PLANET!
• Then it’s super hero battles featuring THOR and SHE-HULK on a DATE! SQUIRREL GIRL matching wits against MS. QUIZZLER! And MORE!
• Artist Naomi Franquiz makes her MARVEL DEBUT in a stanalone adventure you won’t want to miss!

• Last issue ended with Squirrel Girl and someone CLAIMING to be Iron Man getting into a fight! Will this issue show you how that fight goes and who wins and why? THE ANSWER: yes!
• But with an Iron Man imposter on the scene, that means the real Tony Stark is missing! It’s up to Squirrel Girl and her friends to find Tony before it’s too late: for him AND the world.
• Unfortunately for Squirrel Girl-as this comic is within the super-hero genre of sequential art, one that relies on high-stakes narrative storytelling filled with twists and turns that result in the world never being the same-what she finds is not what she expects and the world will never be the same!
• All this-plus: let’s say underwater adventure too awaits you in this issue of the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!

A SPIDER-GEDDON TIE-IN!
• We’re way past first blood-the Spider-Army needs new recruits! No one’s too weird to die for – er – serve the cause!
• Ryan North joins the cause with an incredible story starring SPIDER-MA’AM, a spider-powered Aunt May with Dave Williams (UNCANNY X-FORCE) on art!
• CULLEN BUNN (X-MEN BLUE) brings you a tale of a nightmare world where monsters roam the streets and a SPIDER-MAN strange enough to call it home! You will NEVER guess who’s under the mask!
• Geoffrey Thorne brings an all new Spider-Character to the table, with a Spider-Powered Captain Stacy! Police Officer by day, vigilante by night in a way you’ve never seen before!

SQUIRREL GIRL IS DEAD!
• …is what you’d be saying if you only read the cover of our last issue and NOT the contents, in which we revealed a shocking twist: Squirrel Girl…IS ALIVE?
• Yes! The good news is, everyone’s favorite squirrel-themed super hero is alive and well! But the bad news is: Whoever replaced her…was a shape-shifting alien SKRULL, and now Team Doreen doesn’t know who to trust!
• Mysteries deepen and allegiances are tested in this issue as…a shocking Skrull is revealed!
• It’s not Nancy, though.
• Nancy’s great.

• It’s the latest issue of the all-ages smash hit, THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL! She’s defeated Galactus! She’s defeated Doctor Doom! Who KNOWS what fun adventures she’ll get up to THIS month!
• Well, we do. And you may want to brace yourselves for this, because this issue begins an all-new story arc called…”THE DEATH OF SQUIRREL GIRL”!
• Has the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl been BEATEN? Is this TRULY the end of Doreen Green? We haven’t canceled the comic so it doesn’t seem likely, but can you REALLY be sure? What if this issue installment actually IS the one Squirrel Girl dies in and you miss out because you didn’t buy it?
• So I guess what we’re saying here is everyone should definitely buy this comic.
• PLUS: This issue also has Wolverine in it for LITERALLY several pages!

• Comics have been famously described as “pictorial and other images in deliberate sequence,” but do you need words, too? Perhaps so, but also…PERHAPS NOT??
• In this special, standalone, ALL-SILENT ISSUE of the UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL, she and Iron Man face off against a villain neither has seen before – who will render them quite literally speechless!
• It’s an action-packed adventure that anyone can read, filled with surprises, excitement, action and – for once – NO WORDS!
• This is what Ryan gets for jamming so many words into previous issues.
