Marvel Launches The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl in 2015

This January, Marvel will launch a new, monthly series featuring one of their mightiest and most fearsome heroes.

Yes, that's right: Adventure Time's Ryan North and Subatomic Party Girls's Erica Henderson are bringing you The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

The first story arc, which will run just four issues, will see Squirrel Girl headed to college -- and facing down Galactus. Because, of course it does.

The series will be set in the Marvel Universe -- but apparently in the same way that Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis's Justice League International was set in the DC Universe. It will be accessible to entry-level readers and not continuity-intensive, even though there will be winks and nods for people who know the story.
