So…its…Twin Peaks…mixed with Crossing Jordan….mixed with Dead Like Me……I think.

So yea this is a interesting series I just decided to pick up on a whim. And DAMMIT image stop making so many good books that take my money.

So I don’t wanna spoil anything so lets jump into some genralizations that will end up being rather hollow as this book is all about trying to figure out whats going on.

basic premise, girl gets attack, is in coma, everyones a suspect, and shes apparently having a out-of-body experience. But there are really funny music jokes for audiophiles and the whole book feels like a TV show, which is good.

This particular issue did good setting up characters and the premise, it was slow paced and better for it. The only issue with the story is that there is a “explanation” page at the end and that sorta defeats the purpose of having a mystery series even if it doesn’t give direct answers. Also its sorta hard to figure out the relationship of the different characters but given teh “twin peaks-y” way this book reads I don’t have big problems with it

the art is Gorgeous….moving on

In short: good opening, giant sized book, 2.99, great characters, beautiful artwork, odd premise, funny jokes…….On the pull list like a 90’s kid on Starman

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. I was very impressed with the writing on this book. Obviously the art is beautiful, but I enjoyed the storyline as much and infact more than the very impressive line work and coloring. The mystery is as good, if not better, than series like Fatale and the Long Halloween. If you are a fan of Lost, Alcatraz, Fringe, Twin Peeks, the Usual Suspects and the Inside Job then this is a book you should pick up. This is also a book that has strong female characters who are smart, sexy and hip. I imagine that it is a series that us fanboys can use to transition our significant others into fangirls. The women aren’t going to end up in the fridge although the female lead is in a hospital bed as you can see on Cover B. This book is a good investment for you speculators out there. The website Bleedingcool.com has already reported that the writer of this book is working on securing a TV deal. If the numbers that Thief of Thieves have brought in are any indication of what this title may do if and/or when it secures a TV deal then we are in for a heck of a ride. The other thing this issue has going for it from a collector’s point of view is that many of the books delivered to the East Coast were mangled, had minor spine ticks or wheren’t delievered at all. I will often pick up a few dozen copies of a book that I believe has potential to grow into a monster book in the future. I picked up a dozen copies of cover A but only one copy didn’t have visable damage. My Local Comic Shop received zero copies of cover B. I’m not certain what will happen with the cover B books I ordered. In fact I may not receive a single copy. I don’t think I will be able to find a lot of these books for a reasonable price. The book is already selling at a premium on eBay and sold out at stores like mycomicshop.com. If you are interested in a bookj with beautiful art, captivating writing and real potential for substantial pecuniary growth in the secondary market – Mind the Gap is an easy choice. It was 100% better than Epic Kill and substantially better than X-O Manowar. It is easily the best new title that was released this month and I hope that you all take the oppotunity to pick this book up at your Local Comic Shop and/or online before it is unavailable at cover price. If this book gets better than it is it will be one of the best books on the market. It is already one of the best new books on the market and is on par with the best new titles released in the last calendar year (e.g., Saga, Manhattan Projects, Theif of Theives, Luther Strode, Danger Club, Secret, America’s Got Powers and Fatale).

  2. I felt like the explanation page at the end was more of an explicit way of letting the readers know there are hints placed throughout the book, so keep your eyes peeled.

    I hope it’s only in the first issue. I imagine that page will be replaced by letters later
