Mockingbird Vol. 1: I Can Explain (2016) Chelsea Cain, Joelle Jones, Ibrahim Moustafa, Kate Niemczyk
There was much I liked–a lot I liked–but the story was described as a puzzle box, and some of it seemed to depend upon previous knowledge of characters, so I’m not sure if my confusion stemmed from that or from the puzzle-like nature of the story.
But as I said, there was a lot I enjoyed.
Take these scenes where she is in the waiting room at the medical facility.
There is a lot going on in those panels, mostly in the background, and I know that if I knew more about those background characters it would be even funnier. I mean, look at the pamphlet the one guy is holding.
The whole comic was like that with a ton of little things going on in the background.
And then there was the random stuff that just cracked me up.
So although I need to reread and think about it some more, I did enjoy it–despite all the bits I am sure I was missing.
