I was at first skeptical of this, but having read that Ridley Scott had optioned it for a movie I decided to get it and read it. Well, the art seems a bit strange at first, but once you get into the story you realize it's the perfect fit. The watercolor over pencil work is astounding. The story spans six chapters and the twists and turns are amazing and the final chapter will leave you with a truly mind blowing experience. It's simply the best. I give it my highest recommendation.

Perfection! I just loved this. Having read Kindt's "Revolver" and enjoying it very much, the plot summary of this book had me anxious to read. A bit hard to pinpoint a genre to it but I suppose it falls under paranormal though its main theme covers espionage/spies/secret agents, that sort of thing. A riveting read that kept me spellbound for the entire journey and I'm so excited that this is just Volume 1. What the heck can happen next?! Meru, a successful author of a debut true-crime book, is the main character but she has amnesia that goes back two years, when her memories start, and hasn't written a word since. This is the character we follow throughout the book as we meet many more strange and mysterious people she becomes wrapped up in the secret, dangerous world of the organization called Mind Management. It is a roller coaster of a ride which reads an awful lot like a spy thriller in the vein of the Bourne Identity with the added strangeness of the unknown and special powers of the agents. A perfect read for fans of Lost or those who don't mind an X-Files element in their thrillers. A fun bonus at the end of the book is three short stories which take place prior to the events of book, giving the reader some background information on characters and plot. Loved it! And Kindt's watercolour artwork is too gorgeous not to call special attention to as well.

Mind MGMT Volume 1 was an exceedingly compelling read. It was recommended to me by a friend who knows I'm a big fan of the X-Files and its various progeny, e.g. Lost, Fringe, et all (the kindle version I purchased even had a forward by a writer for Lost).

The story concerns an amnesiac true crime writer chasing a lead for a new book, involving an ill-fated airline flight on which every passenger suddenly lost his memory. She (obviously) discovers that between government spies, a frightening pair of implacable assassins, and a "missing link" survivor who's not all he appears to be, she's bitten off more than she can chew. The book is so remarkable not for its premise, which is mostly old hat, but for its fresh and stylish execution. I rated this title five stars for a few reasons:

1. The concept of being in a dream with a twist ending is served strongly by the gorgeous watercolor-style artwork. The often-obscure frames had me flipping back and forth fervently to try and figure out if there was something subtle that I'd missed (often the case).

2. There is almost no wasted space whatsoever on all 202 pages. Everything serves to advance the story or the tone in some way out another, from the most seemingly-innocuous line of dialogue to the funky, surreal "instructions" in the margins. The pace moves along at a steady clip and avoids being ponderous or self-indulgent.

3. The story is genuinely engaging. A fresh story in the government conspiracy/cover-up genre can be hard to come by these days; Kindt serves up some genuinely surprising and satisfying twists and turns, none of which feel tracked on or cheap.

NOt a big fan of Matt Kindts art but i have heard so much about this book that i thought i would give it a shot. And man am I glad I did. Hard to kind of explain and I am sure others did a better job. My advice just go pick it up and be wowed. Great idea, great execution and nice Hard Bound edition. IF you are a fan of Lost this is right up your alley. Worth every penny.

I have read this front to back and keep finding more and more to it. I have been reading comics for 35 years and have never experienced anything like this. Cannot recommend it enough.

For some reason the story just doesn't grab me - there is a huge conspiracy afoot, the people in the story are tenuously connected to it, and it has catastrophic results for those around them. But that's it. The art is messy and inconsistent, almost as if it was rushed here or there. There is a meta-fiction running through it where the pages of the comic are themselves part of the conspiracy. Each page is made to appear as if it is printed on special "mind management" paper, so this is supposedly an agent's recollection or report to the authorities in charge of the conspiracy.

I was intrigued enough to check it out, but I won't be continuing the series.

About two months ago, i saw a single issue of mind mgmt, issue 7 i believe, on a shelve at my comic shop. So i asked the owner of the comic book store, if it was a good book, he replied, "well it does not sell well." so my curiosity got the best of me and so i bought it. After reading issue 7 i was instantly HOOKED!! and now i have a monthly special order to pick up the new issues. Issues 7-10 are amazing! so i was curious to see how issues 1-6 are, which are collected in VOLUME 1. For those expecting to be amazed by great art and drawings this book is not for you. However, if you are into story lines and amazing characters then this is the book for you. Expect to be shocked and confused while you read this book.
