177a Bleecker Street has a new occupant: Loki Laufeyson, the God of Mischief. It's a wild change for Marvel's Doctor Strange series, and one you'd think the heroes of the Marvel universe would immediately see as something to be corrected and dealt with.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is a frequently smart and delightful comic, and this week's issue, a zine-style anthology of stories that actually barely features Squirrel Girl herself, is no exception.
