Mockingbird #5

The next stop on Mockingbird's search for answers about the unusual virus in her system is a super-secret S.H.I.E.L.D. medical lab deep below New York City where S.H.I.E.L.D. scientists have been experimenting with Bobbi's blood on cadavers and accidentally created a group of rampaging zombies. You know, an average day in the life of a Marvel hero.

There's plenty of action here along with Bobbi's unusual new "glow stick hand power" which seems to repel zombies. Since that's kind of a limited resource, I'll be curious to see if Mockingbird can find additional uses for the new power. However, once overrun by zombies the hand power proves less than effective and it's time for our hero to fall back to more traditional means of zombie fighting. Mockingbird smash!

Featuring a pair of unexpected cameos in Miles Morales and Howard the Duck, Mockingbird #5 may not be quite as good as last month's underwater issue but it proves to still be a hell of a lot of fun. Worth a look.
