ICv2 – Wizard Endures Another Down Quarter – Not too surprising.

• Things go from bad to worse as Brain Drain is still missing, and the greatest villains in Marvel history team up to take out the one thing that’s stood in their way: our hero, Doreen Green!
• With Melissa doing everything she can to destroy Squirrel Girl, is there anything Doreen can do to survive??
• Gosh, I sure hope so because it’d be nice if we actually make it to #50 BUT TECHNICALLY YOU NEVER KNOW!!
• Especially when Squirrel Girl’s first villain, DOCTOR DOOM, is involved…
• I don’t want to say more because SPOILERS, but trust us when we say this is a bonkers issue in which bonkers things happen, and you should definitely order it right now!!

A WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN! The MOST squirrel-centric War of the Realms tie-in reaches its conclusion! Only one woman stands between the invading army of the Frost Giants and utter disaster on Earth, and that woman is SQUIRREL GI- hold on… hold on, sorry. I’m getting word that not one but TWO women actually stand between the Giants and utter disaster on Earth, and one of them is…RATATOSKR?? It seems unlikely that the Norse god of gossip would be on Team Doreen, let alone a valuable member of it – but hey, stranger things have happened, right? I can’t think of any off the top of my head, but they’ve probably happened. Can SQUIRREL GIRL team up with her SMACK-TALKING ENEMY? Can two people who couldn’t be more different find a common ground in time to save everyone? And will BRAIN DRAIN make it back from the Negative Zone? You may THINK you know the answers to these questions, but only by purchasing and then reading this illustrated picto-narrative will your suspicions be confirmed or denied!

WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN!
• You know how Squirrel Girl has stayed out of most Marvel events? Turns out, that was only because THOSE events didn’t involve her good pal LOKI LAUFEYSON!
• When Earth is attacked as part of the WAR OF THE REALMS, Squirrel Girl is called back from her Negative Zone vacation, and Loki recruits her as part of a secret mission!
• Is Loki running a scheme? Probably. Is he playing a trick? Almost certainly. But he NEVER lies about the safety of his good friend (and Cat Thor creator) Nancy Whitehead, and that puts him and Doreen on the same side.
• It’s Squirrel Girl’s first BIG EVENT CROSSOVER… but it’s still the start of a stand-alone epic that you can still enjoy even if you only read SQUIRREL GIRL!
• Also if you’re reading this because you’re thinking, “Hmm I’m big into WAR OF THE REALMS but do I really need to see what happens in SQUIRREL GIRL” then let me say WOW DO YOU EVER, THERE’S A REVEAL ON THIS LAST PAGE THAT’S BEEN IN THE WORKS FOR YEARS!

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!

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!
