MIND THE GAP #1

After Elle Peterssen is mysteriously attacked on a Manhattan subway platform, she is left in a coma, the only clues to her attacker trapped inside her mind. No one knows the identity of the person behind this brutal beating or where they will strike next. In this ALL-NEW ONGOING series, everyone is suspect, and no one is innocent. USAToday calls it an “anxiously anticipated modern thriller…Whodunit? McCann’s done it again.”

Eisner-winning writer JIM McCANN joins RODIN ESQUEJO (MORNING GLORIES) and SONIA OBACK (S.H.I.E.L.D., The Defenders) unite for a psychological thriller that will leave you guessing at every turn!

  1. I gave this Title a shot. But I am not feeling to existed about it. I will give it at least two issues.

  2. Thanks for all the pulls!*

    *not intended to be as dirty as it sounds…

    • I just want to let you know Mr. McCann that because of your book, and the Avengers movie coming out, has made this one of the best weeks of the year!

    • Thank you for your work. The ashcan was great. It was put together with pride on quality material. The story was cool and the art was beautiful. I and thousands of others can’t wait to read the first issue. Some of us have anticipate that you are going to close a deal for a TV series in the next few months and wish you all the best. Would you please email me with information about purchasing original art? My email address is gsidirop@gmail.com. Your anticipated cooperation in that regard is appreciated.

    • He calls his book “Mind the Gap” but still makes a pun about comic book pull lists

  3. The previews for this have left me thinking this will be nothing short of awesome, The art is friggin’ gorgeous and the initial set up of the story looks intriguing, which is a good thing to be as it’s a mystery and all.

  4. Haven’t read a McCann story I didn’t like, can’t wait!

  5. This is what its all about this week for me!
    I’ve Actually never read a mystery comic before, crazy huh? Well I can’t tell you how eager i am to start!

  6. Can’t wait!

    But… Wasn’t there a cool, very designy white cover to this? Am I confusing this with some other book?

  7. Definitely excited for this. The preview in Previews (duh) was great, can’t wait to read the whole issue!

  8. This is the most anticipated release of the week for me, I can’t wait to read it, and fully expect it to be aweomse, plus – Rodin Esquejo’s art is always spectacular.

  9. Can’t wait for this for so many reasons! The preview was awesome!

  10. I’m so excited for this book!! I really enjoyed the preview. I’m getting at least two of the three covers…maybe I can get my hands on the retailer exclusive variant cover by Adrian Alphona and Christina Strain. That would make my year!!

  11. I wasn’t going to order the book, but then I saw Jim McCann’s name on it and remembered that I really enjoyed the interviews on the video show. So, I had to order, if he is that entertaining and cool during an interview, the book has to be brilliant 🙂

  12. Well I read the preview over at CBR and I have to say I am intrested to say the least, so i will be picking this up tomorrow and give it a spin.

  13. I heard someone died in the wreck that delayed this coming out. That’s creepy to think of.

  14. MadCowDzz (@DarylFritz) says:

    Boo, went to my shop at lunch to discover they didn’t stock this. [Cue frantic evening]

    • MadCowDzz (@DarylFritz) says:

      Just read about the truck accident… that’s sad. I still don’t think my guy ordered any copies anyway.

  15. Faced with adversity and next week for the paper copy, I hopped over to Graphicly and got it digitally…it is awesome! I was reading too fast and trying to get in all the details. It’s kind of maddening in a good way, you find yourself wondering if a glance between two people means something signifcant. Dammit this one has me hook line and sinker.

  16. One of my favorite parts of this comic was the “soundtrack”, good musical taste is a plus. The plot itself was almost more confusing than compelling but I’m definitely interested enough to see what happens in the next issue.

    • I agree about the music; this was a “maybe” for me, until I flipped through it in the shop and saw the reference to Blind Melon. That, and the 48 pgs for 2.99 was enough for me to check it out.

  17. So whats the full story here? My LCS was supposed to get this and didnt.

  18. I thought this was an intriguing start, I like the fact that Mr. McCann mentioned that the book is full of clues; I love that shit, and it will be fun to search for more in future issues. I thought the art was great too, especially the variation in the readers viewpoint from scene to scene, it felt very cinematic. I’m down for a good mystery, so I think I’ll continue to check this out.

  19. Not sure what to think about this book. I didn’t get any of the musical references, though I understand the tone they set. The art was nice but it didn’t overly wow me. And, I’m not entirely sure what the stakes are…Hope the book does well and builds nicely but I don’t think I’ll be in for issues at this point.

  20. Have not gotten this yet due to the acident I suppose, how horrible!! My prayers and thoughts go out to all the families involved here.

  21. Well finally got my hands on a copy of this last night at the book store and I must say at first I was intregued and then as the issue went on I had no idea what the hell I was reading?! I just do not know where they were going with this story and I get the feeling this is like a General Hospital soap opera with a splash of the after life. “I SEE DEAD SOAP ACTORS!” Just gonna be honest there was a absolute no clear sign of any direction.
    SORRY MIND GAP DROPPED!!

    • I just wanted it to end. I hated the smoke guy in the dream and I don’t care who pushed the girl. I gave it a 3 because it was double-sized for $3 and hate nice art but at the end I just didn’t care.

  22. All the references to songs and old movies/actors dragged the pacing a bit. Also, everyone seemed pretty “meh” about their friend/daughter/sister/girlfriend going into a coma. Who the hell brings up movie nights when your friend may be dying?

    “wake up dude, I want to see Sling Blade for the 99th time with you”

  23. I think this book is shooting for a grew up in the 80’s and 90’s audience, hence Mind The Gap, generation x references throughout for people who remember those songs…..generation gaps are a tricky thing where a lot of e keep us connected but others focus/target only those who were there.

  24. *lot of em keep us connected

  25. I think I have a misprint of mind the gap. The story begins and around page 12 it restarts completely, to continue again after 24 pages and to repeat again after 36 pages ???
    Has anyone heard of this error ? It looks like an interesting story, but I think I have a misprint of some kind, or rather they put in the pages in error… ???
