      I’m actually not familiar with Mockingbird, but I’ve been trying to get into comics recently (I’ve read some Ms. Marvel, some of the new Thor, and a bit of Capt. Marvel), and this one looks like it could be good. I’m all about the lady superheroes!

      I used to love the Merlin books so much! I’m excited for the film even though I no longer remember the stories.

      I kind of want to see P&P and Zombies, but I also don’t want to have to see the gore. Can’t there be a totally-unrealistic and non-bloody version?
