I’m back from the comic shop this week and I got four new comics:

  • Bloodshot – 11
  • Fatale – 14
  • X-O Manowar – 13
  • The Fall of the House of Usher – 1 (of 2)
  • And now for a review of something I’ve read recently.

    ”Mind MGMT” Issues 6-10 by Matt Kindt

    I’m writing a little review of ”Mind MGMT” again after reviewing issues 1-5 last fall. I wanted to revisit is because the book has gotten even better. It’s a conspiracy story with weird super-powers thrown in. It’s full of secrets and twists and turns so I won’t reveal any of that here.

    The first story arc was fairly straight forward. A reporter was working on a story and trying to find stuff out about a secret government organization called Mind MGMT. In particular she’s looking for one legendary agent who might have answers for her. It was a good story with a nice reveal at the end.

    This second story arc deals with that reporter and a few ex-agents of the now dissolved Mind MGMT (or it may have already been dissolved before the first story arc I can’t remember) as they try to stop someone from recruiting former agents with super-powers for nefarious purposes. The reporter who was an outsider character now has other outsider characters to work with. It’s a fun scenario filled with tension and intrigue.

    Kindt’s art and storytelling are top notch just like in the first story. He has a drawing style that might not appeal to fans of super-hero art but I like it a lot. He also added a new thing to the storytelling of this arc. He’s writing a text story in the margins of the pages with a sentence or two on a page. I guess you can read all that stuff after the comic but I like to read it as I go along. It’s odd. It interferes with the standard storytelling of a comic page but I like it. Somehow the interference of another level of text works for me.

    So what are you waiting for? ”Mind MGMT” is a good comic. One of my favorites right now.
