    Comicosity - Emma Houxbois Oct 19, 2016

    Perform a past life regression on an issue of Mockingbird and you might just discover its the reincarnation of the Liu/Acuna Black Widow run. But as pressing as the attendant issues around the series cancellation are, to let them get in the way of enjoying cavorting mercorgis would be a profound betrayal of Mockingbirds spirit.

    If you like extremely well written books, that are funny, smart and great to look at, go checkout the back issues for this run. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Oct 26, 2016

    This comic is obviously undervalued and fell upon deaf ears with Marvel fans. This comic deserves room amongst the best Marvel comics, but instead it's being cancelled. This is perhaps the most important comics for women alongside A-Force, and they've both been discontinued. It's poor. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Oct 20, 2016

    The wrap-up here is in keeping with the rest of the run " funny, sassy, Chardonnay-soaked, and corgi-filled. I enjoyed this comic so much and frankly I'm surprised and impressed that it came from one of the Big Two. If you can get your hands on the back issues, do so and see for yourself what a mainstream comic can be. You can read all our Mockingbird reviews here. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Rob Bonnette Oct 27, 2016

    If you've followed this book then you'll like the way it ended while being bummed out that it's over. For those who haven't been it's worth getting the entire run and giving it a read. It's a departure from the other Marvel fare and more in the vein of Astonishing Ant-Man (which is sadly also ending) than Spider-Man or the Avengers. There is action but mostly witty banter and humor to go along with good artwork. If you prefer epic throwdowns then it not's really for you but you're cool with the occasional diversion from that then this is right up your alley. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 19, 2016

    A good farewell worth a few chuckles for sure. It's a bit slow and Mockingbird isn't as highlighted as I'd like, but it's a fine goodbye. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 24, 2016

    While this finale might not give you all the Mockingbird that you might have hoped for, this is a decent conclusion to the series pretty much because it stays consistent with the zaniness of every issue that came before it.  I'm definitely going to miss the dialog and the amazing art because it truly made this series something special.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 26, 2016

    The only real negative here is the tie-in back to Civil War II which feels a bit forced. In truth, the ending is hard to take seriously given both the tone of the comic and the fact that the scene is far more plausible if it's Bobbi's beach-bound fantasy. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Nightmare of Solomon Oct 19, 2016

    I can understand Cain wanted to do away with Mockinbird's rape because it made her a victim and a cheap plot device... 'cept Cain didn't think or seemed to care that the new story makes it so that she cheated on her husband, letting him believe she was raped, so in her quest to turn Mockingbird from a victim and into a strong person she instead turned Mockingbird into a complete scumbag who allowed her husband to wallow in emotional torment over what had happened to her because "she can make her own decisions and deal with the consequences". GREAT SUCCESS!
