Squirrel Girl: Universe

A Marvel Heroines Novel

By Tristan Palmgren

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is on a wild cosmic adventure to save the galaxy, in a Marvel Heroines action novel that is totally out of this world!

Squirrel Girl is in a pickle and a jam, a metaphor that mixes about as well as it tastes. She and her friends are lost in outer space, where there is a conspicuous absence of oxygen and, even more troubling, a shortage of squirrels. After hitching a ride on a passing space whale, Squirrel Girl and her trusty companions find themselves on a free-merchant space station and on the front line of a looming interstellar war. The stakes have never been so high, and trillions of lives are at risk! Luckily for the universe, Squirrel Girl is here to stand up against the odds and set things right across the galaxy.

It isn’t easy being extraordinary. Superhuman powers can be both a gift and a curse in a world where those talents can be used for good or evil. A lucky few are taught how to control their abilities at the Charles Xavier Institute, while others must master their uniquely dangerous powers alone. Will they become true heroes and heroines when called upon to defend the world, or turn their fearsome abilities to conquering the world? Meanwhile, in a realm beyond Earth, mighty heroes do battle with monsters of myth and undertake quests to restore peace and honor to the legendary halls of Asgard and the Ten Realms.

About the Author

TRISTAN PALMGREN is the author of the critically acclaimed genre-warping blend of historical fiction and space opera novel Quietus, and its sequel Terminus. They have been a clerk, a factory technician, a university lecturer, a cashier, a secretary, a retail manager, a rural coroner’s assistant. In their lives on parallel Earths, they have been an ant farm tycoon, funeral home enthusiast, professional con-artist impersonator, laser pointer chaser, and the person who somehow landed a trademark for the word “Avuncular.” Jealous. They live with their partner in Salem, Virginia.

Interviews and Articles

“This is Squirrel Girl at peak cleverness, peak brilliance, and peak hilarity. And her entire supporting cast is right there with her, including Brain Drain and Mary Mahajan. I love them all. It’s a thrilling adventure filled with big ideas explored in fun ways – Tristan Palmgren has truly captured the soul of these characters.”
— Ryan North, author of the fictional Unbeatable Squirrel Girl comics, the semi-fictional graphic novel adaptation of Slaughterhouse-Five, and the (so-far-non-fictional) books How To Take Over The World and How To Invent Everything.

“I was literally laughing out loud at some parts. It’s a great escapist book to just relax with”
The Cosmic Circus

“Palmgren manages once again to merge the world of comics and prose fiction perfectly in that their story reads like a comic in terms of action and adventure but has the wonderful add on of wider character development (we get to see what characters are thinking and feeling more clearly than in the comic verse) and the superb and frankly hilarious footnotes by our heroine, Squirrel Girl and her wonderful editor”
What You Tolkien About

Squirrel Girl: Universe is not your normal super hero story. Other than the inclusion of some super heroes, I wouldn’t even include it in that genre. Instead, Tristan Palmgren has tried to do something different, and has crafted a weird and wonderful science fiction story that at times feels like it has more in common with something like The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy than it does your average Spider-Man adventure.”

“It’s wild, thoughtful, exciting, and of course, hilarious. The journey it invites you on contains the same level of cosmic wonder as virtually any Marvel movie, and whilst it might occupy one of the more outlandish segments of the Marvel universe, this novel is no less substantial for it.”
The Book Network

Praise for Tristan Palmgren

“This book is bangin’! If you miss Domino from our run, she’s back, with a great espionage/thriller take. Tristan Palmgren nailed it!”

Gail Simone, author of Domino Vol 1 and Hotshots


“An action-packed blast of balletic violence and snappy dialogue with an unexpectedly thoughtful, psychological core… All told it’s tremendously entertaining and compulsively readable, with a wonderfully strong voice and a fresh identity all of its own.”
