Mockingbird, Vol. 2: My Feminist Agenda by Chelsea Cain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This second and final volume in this run of Mockingbird, by Chelsea Cain, carries on the previous volume's quirkiness in a far more linear storyline. This story is a murder mystery investigated by our protagonist Barbara "Bobbi" Morse, aboard a cruise ship, the Diamond Porpoise, in the Bermuda Triangle.
Has Chelsea Cain ever written another comic? I really liked her style in this run; she seems to me to be having a grand old time playing with the limits of the medium and moving beyond them. She perfectly captures the Bobbi's sass, sarcasm and confidence. She also packs her panels with little detours and details that you have to pay attention to in order to grasp the full breadth of the story she is telling (and carried out in most excellent fashion by artist Kate Niemczyk and letterer Joe Caramagna). I thoroughly enjoyed this and the first volume and wish she could have continued with the character.
