Trade paperbacks/graphic novels

  • The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, vol. 2 (HC), $35


  • Marvel Unlimited, $10/month or $69/year


The X-Men vs. Inhumans throwdown continues this month.

Squirrel Girl’s not only appearing in a second ongoing book, but it’s also out twice a month. Thus, I only list it here out of being the series’ debut issue. I’m still trying to avoid recommending twice-monthly books, since it’ll actually cost $8 a month instead of $4 to follow “U.S.Avengers.”

As for Doreen’s usual book, it’s a 25th anniversary issue, as she debuted in “Marvel Super-Heroes” (vol. 2) #8 in January 1992. The issue sees a flashback to her 15th birthday.

Riri Williams, the new superheroine known as “Ironheart,” guest stars in this month’s “Moon Girl.” Riri’s been in the news, both for a Big Two company’s baby steps toward diversity and for a now-pulled controversial cover.

Captain Marvel gets yet another new series. I assume it’ll be rebooted at least once more before her movie debuts in a few years.

The 70s-style Luke Cage miniseries comes to an end this month.
