Erica Henderson has announced the end of an era for The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl on Twitter tonight. The issue of Squirrel-Girl Henderson is currently working on will be the last on which she is the interior artist. However, Henderson noted that Squirrel Girl will continue with an as-yet-unannounced new artist and that she'll continue drawing its covers. Marvel Star Wars editor Heather Antos also left Marvel for another position on Friday, as reported earlier today.
Henderson's announcement was met with words of support from colleagues:
Henderson didn't say what she's doing next, though she hinted that one or more creator-owned projects may already be in motion. She also didn't say exactly which issue will be her last. The most recently solicited issue of Squirrel-Girl is May's #32, which features Henderson as artist:
THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #32

ERICA HENDERSON (A/C)
• Doreen Green (A.K.A. the super hero Squirrel Girl) and her friend Nancy Whitehead (an unrelated civilian) have had a great idea: Let's get some friends together and play an escape room! Escape rooms are those real-life games where you get locked in a room and have an hour to escape before you die!
• In the game, I mean. It's not like if you die in the game you die in real life! Hah hah.
• They gather KOI BOI, CHIPMUNK HUNK, BRAIN DRAIN and, as a special guest…their good friend KRAVEN THE HUNTER.
• BUT WHEN THEY ENTER THE ROOM IT TURNS OUT THAT IF YOU DIE IN THE GAME YOU DIE IN REAL LIFE!! TWIST!!
• It's everything you crave: friendship, adventure and a room full of death traps that you can only find in SQUIRREL GIRL!
