Metaphorically speaking, anyway. I wrote how, after a long hiatus with comics, I got my hands on a copy of the Squirrel Girl Volume 1 tradeback (“Squirrel Power”) and how much I enjoyed it. So I decided to see what else was out there. In fact, I got so many tradebacks my friend D suggested I just get a subscription because it would be cheaper. I countered that a subscription would let Marvel Comics think I wanted to partake of all their offerings, whereas tradebacks show Marvel Comics what I actually want. Sure, it’s more expensive, but sometimes the extra expense is worth it. Anyway, I’m on a bit of a female superhero kick lately, so here’s what I decided to get:
or, “I Heart the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl”
I finally finally picked up the first tradeback of “The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl” (called “Squirrel Power,” naturally) which has the first four issues and a bonus reprint of the first appearance of Squirrel Girl (in “Marvel Super Heroes #8”). It’s everything I hoped it would be and I’m going to get subsequent tradebacks.
