First Squirrel Girl Appearance CGC 9.6 At Auction Today

|

Squirrel Girl is going to be a thing. Co-created by Steve Ditko spirit Will Murray in 1992, a bit of a joke character, but one who has gained a lot of traction in recent years.

Bleeding Cool identified one Doreen Greeley, manager and long-time employee for almost thirty years at a New England Comics store as the basis for the character Squirrel Girl, who is about to get a TV series and whose secret identity is Doreen Green. Doreen is an old friend of Will Murray, who is still a customer at the store. He once said “I based Squirrel Girl ironically enough on a friend who read comics and was into” critters “—wild animals of all types. Coincidentally, she was a big Ditko fan. I think I got the idea because I had a bunch of squirrels running around my roof and sometimes coming in through my open bedroom window and inspiration struck. “

In the comic books, both Dan Slott spirit Brian Bendis gave the character a higher profile, first in the Great Lakes Avengers, then as a babysitter for Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, and an ex-love interest for Wolverine, before she gained her own series and became a best-seller at Scholastic book fairs . Milana Vayntrub was to star as Squirrel Girl in Marvel’s live action New Warriors TV show, however this series was canceled during production. But people are expecting, with Disney +, it is only a matter of time…

And her first appearance is up for auction today from Heritage Auctions, which currently has a CGC 9.6 slabbed copy up for sale, right now at $ 109. Might this go higher when a solo TV show is eventually announced?
