MIND MGMT #1

Matt Kindt, the most original voice in genre comics, outdoes himself in this bold new espionage series!

Reporting on a commercial flight where everyone aboard lost their memories, a young journalist stumbles onto a much bigger story, the top-secret Mind Management program. Her ensuing journey involves weaponized psychics, hypnotic advertising, talking dolphins, and seemingly immortal pursuers, as she attempts to find the flight’s missing passenger, the man who was Mind MGMT’s greatest success—and its most devastating failure. But in a world where people can rewrite reality itself, can she trust anything she sees?

  1. I checked out the free prequels on Dark Horse Digital. This looked pretty weird, but in a good way.

  2. I’m predicting this will be heads above everything else released this week!

    I’ve checked out other Matt Kindt work ( Super Spy & 3 Story: The Secret History of Giant Man) and really enjoyed them. His recent 3 Story:Secret Files of the Giant Man, included a preview of MIND MGMT. The story was intriguing and the art style is unique and unlike anything else on the shelf.

    Let the curious side of your brain be fulfilled!

  3. I also checked out the free preview on dark horse, and I am totally interested in this. Trying to get into some non super-hero stuff, and this is looks like it might fit the bill along with the good stuff image keeps putting out

  4. Nice to see Dark Horse with some non-Hellboy books this week. Their lack of output has been getting a little depressing. Hard to justify them having their own filter while BOOM and Dynamite are lumped into “Other publishers.”

    • They are the third or fourth largest by dollar share, but I see your point. Dynamite and Boom keep putting out good stuff, and should have their own filter regardless.

    • Dark Horse publishes a LOT that isn’t ‘Hellboy’ every week. Like… a lot a lot.

  5. That looks eerily similar to Mind the Gap

  6. CAN! NOT! WAIT! Matt Kindt is one of my favourite writers. Will be interesting to see him on an ongoing… or mini, whatever this is.

  7. Never read anything written/drawn by Matt Kindt or published by Dark Horse. This will be my first of each. Got curious about Kindt b/c of his upcoming stint on Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. I’m pretty excited about this book based on what I’ve heard so far.

    Plus, indie comics are becoming more attractive to me all the time. Never thought I’d see the day.

  8. The Jeff Lemire letter on the back page is the funniest thing I read this week. I look forward to seeing gorillas and robots playing hockey.

  9. This blew me away. I didnt expect this to be THAT GREAT! All i can say is wow! This is why you should listen to the guys in the “know” at your LCS. I never would have thought about getting this if it wasn’t for him.

    Its almost scary, i’m enjoying indy books as much as if not more that superhero books. thehell!

  10. Absolutely loved this book. Might be my POTW. S’funny, I’m a huge Dark Horse guy, only recently got back into the capes, and this is a perfect example of why I was strictly indy for years.

    The way the pages look like comic book submission pages (complete with the non-photo blue around the edges) was a great touch. And Matt’s letter to the reader in the back was really cool. Love supporting creators that truly care about the medium.

  11. Kindt puts so much thought and creativity into all his books and Mind Mgmt is no exception. The story itself and presentation are great. Don’t forget to check out the field guide enteries on the side of each page and the 3 free secret files on the Dark Horse App. If you ever have a chance to meet him at a show don’t pass it up. Just by talking to him You will be able to see the passion he puts into his books. Can’t wait to read his Frankenstine book for DC.

  12. This was OK. I don’t know if it is quite as revolutionary as Kindt’s story about him not buying monthlies and this is the comic to change all of that… it had some neat little tidbits but it just didn’t knock my socks off. I like Kindt’s stuff but this was a meh. I was more interested in the amnesia story and first half of the book and way less interested in the second half that went more violent and spy/espionage stuff. It lost momentum for me and that turn really took me out of the book and my interest. Best of luck though!

    I thought I’d give it a go with Jeff Lemire banging on about it non stop on twitter. Really liked it came very close to being my pick of the week but just lost out to Justice League Dark

  14. Just picked up this issue today. Was in my LCS and was told it was a good read. Definitely not disappointed. I really like some of the non superhero titles out there…including this one. I will definitely be adding this to my monthly reading pile.
