•  A top secret mission on behalf of an old friend, a tropical cruise. What could go wrong? Turns out it's a theme cruise - super-hero themed, naturally - a floating comic con. Now Bobbi is trapped on a boat with a thousand cosplayers, caped colleagues she was trying to avoid, an ex-boyfriend who keeps showing up at inopportune times and a rampaging herd of corgis.
•  When a passenger is murdered, Bobbi must play Hercule Poirot to find the killer and confront some uncomfortable truths from her past in the process.

    All in all, there are worse problems to have than liking a book's take too much, and this issue makes it worth any worries that it can't last in sheer quality. Read Full Review

    Knowing that Hawkeye has confessed to the crime, I'm a little confused as to what exactly Mockingbird is seeking (or what intel eventually gets her skittish contact killed), but the strange backdrop sets up a murder-mystery I'll be interested in watching the Avenger solve. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Mockingbird continues to be one of my favorite books that Marvel is putting out and while the situations that Bobbie Morse finds herself in are normally a wild ride of nonsense, this issue does a great job in balancing its over the top nature with some real character depth that I really appreciated.  We've got great art and great writing......... So what are you waiting for?  Pick up Mockingbird already and give it a try. Read Full Review

    The artwork in Mockingbird #6 is fairly good, proving to be consistently detailed and emphasizing the femininity of the comic while remaining kick-ass. The comic starts out as a Hawkeye rendezvous mission and quickly fabricates into something so much more than that. The cruise has set sail towards the Bermuda Triangle as things promise to get much more interesting. Read Full Review

    In the end, what started as a "get the dirt on Hawkeye" mission turns into a much bigger mystery. Just as the boat sails into the Bermuda Triangle. The set up is clear, now let's watch while Bobbi goes full Miss Marple and cracks this one. Read Full Review
