The Mocking Dead #2 (2013) – By Jason S. Lockard

The Walking Dead TV series is a phenomenon! People tune in every week. They re-watch episodes, they discuss the show. Zombie have become the new cool monster. Well, Dynamite Comics have released a new comic book poking fun at our favorite monsters, The Mocking Dead.

I received a copy of issue #2 of The Mocking Dead. I think with the title you already realize you are in for a not so serious take on the zombie uprising. In this world the zombies are not exactly what your would expect! What do I mean? Well, I don’t want to spoil it! You’ll have to pick up a copy and begin the series!

This is a dark black and white noir style panel comic with splashes of red blood. The artwork is stellar, the story I wasn’t completely excited about. I like my comics ‘real’. I’m not a big fan of spoofs, but if you are this is one comic you have got to check out.

In the final analysis Dynamite comics have given us a spoof comic that is no doubt #1 with a bullet to a zombie head. At only $3.99 it is great price for 24 pages of zombie fun! So head over to www.dynamite.com and pick up a copy of The Mocking Dead.
