It may not be the weekend yet, but cult-favorite character Squirrel Girl is looking pretty laid back in this new variant cover for Marvel's "Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" #1. CBR has the exclusive first look at the image, illustrated by artist Siya Oum -- who has become a frequent fixture at Marvel this year, between covers for "Avengers & X-Men: AXIS" and "All-New Ultimates," and interior work in "Superior Foes of Spider-Man" #10.
"Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" is set to launch in January from the creative team of writer Ryan North and artist Erica Henderson, and is the first solo series for the former Great Lakes Avenger. The book will see the character -- who once served as nanny to Jessica Jones and Luke Cage's baby daughter, Danielle -- head to college.
"There's the life changes of moving into a dorm when your best friend is a squirrel, but there's also some villains that show up and threaten her pretty directly," North told CBR in October. "It's that classic "girl meets squirrel, girl and squirrel go to school and defeat supervillains" story, I guess!"
