Entertainment Weekly has announced a new series from Marvel Comics -- "Unbeatable Squirrel Girl" by Ryan North ("Adventure Time") and Erica Henderson ("Quantum & Woody").

The series, which arrives nearly 23 years after her debut, marks Squirrel Girl's first as a headlining hero. The announcement states that the series will follow Luke Cage's former nanny as she heads off to college for a whole new set of adventures. The title also contains an adjective -- "unbeatable" -- not yet used by Marvel comics, setting the titular character apart from her "uncanny" and "amazing" peers.
