Escaping the taunts of her fellow school students regarding her physical mutation, Los Angeles-born Doreen Green fled into the nearby woods where she quickly discovered her affinity for squirrels.

With next fall's television schedule packed with comic book shows, it seemed like the perfect time to break out a list of comics we'd love to see as a TV series. The rules are simple, the comic cannot have already been adapted for television, nor already be adapted from a television series. Sorry, Jem and the Holograms, but seriously bring that back with the tone of this current comic series. Also, animated adaptations are not included in being previously adapted. We're talking about live action television series here.
The under-appreciated artists in comics are the colorists. A bad one can ruin a book, a good one will most likely go unnoticed. There is one colorist that has been setting himself apart from others with his unique color choices that always seem to work. His covers that he has colored get noticed and talked about. Self-taught, he tends to be very selective in the work that he takes on, but his breakthrough work has been on Spider-Gwen, although he can also be spotted on Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and Howard the Duck, series where he adds a lot to already stunning artwork.

(She's also starting college this semester.) • It's the start of a brand-new series of adventures starring the nuttiest and most upbeat super hero in the world! REVIEW: I've said it before, sometimes it seems like Marvel's creative strategy is based on dares. That does not mean that the ideas are bad, just that they are unconventional. A Squirrel Girl series is one of those decisions. In the face of a lot of very serious stories in the Marvel Universe, is there room for one that is just fun? Absolutely.
