What should I buy? – Mocking Dead #1
MOCKING DEAD #1 (OF 4)
(W) Fred Van Lente (A) Max Dunbar (CA) Zombie Caution Cover
From the New York Times bestselling writer of the Marvel Zombies series comes a gut-splitting (then eating) comedy! A small outbreak can turn into a worldwide apocalypse… but only through a long string of screw-ups. Once actual zombies begin popping up in our world, a lone intelligence analyst realizes real-life events are beginning to mimic the events of a long-lost, Grade-Z, drive-in horror flick. As he races to save humanity with this knowledge, he quickly learns the only thing more dangerous than ravenous walking corpses is the ineptitude of the living!
I don’t usually like parodies other than Weird Al. Stuff like Scary Movie usually only have 1 or 2 good laughs. The Mocking Dead is a mini series that seems built on the premise that a low level government employee sees what is happening and tries to stop it. The cover art being humorous and the writer have me pre-ordering this comic. To see more about it, click the links below or check it out in this month’s Previews on page 288.
