When I first came across Jason Brubaker's website, reMIND only had a few chapters. Now, it's a printed graphic novel available for sale. 152 pages, nicely bind. That was quick.

The story starts with Sonja who lost her cat Victuals in a mysterious bubbling pool of water. Several days later, Victuals came back a talking cat. The story then explores what happened.

It's a nice and unique story, an action adventure mixed with some surprises. The characters are interesting, not just Victuals but also the others which are introduced.

The art is beautiful with a textural feel that's a good match for the story. The composition is fantastic, panels carefully laid out with purpose and that really aids the storytelling.

The book ends with an inspiring look at the process of making the graphic novel as an independent creator.

Also be sure to check out the reMIND website because there are lots of useful information there, like tips on creating graphic novels or promoting your web comic. While you can actually find the graphic novel available as a free web comic there, it's always cool to support artists who create good comics by getting a physical copy.

For those who have been following his work online, you'll probably get an extra sense of appreciation knowing how much effort this book represents.

I enjoy the book very much.

Highly recommended.

The comic book has incredible artwork a compelling story and interesting character, definitley worth a read.But it's available from the author's website online and the second printing isn't far off, so i'd suggest against spending hundreds of dollrs for it. I quote the author;

"Also, just so you know, I have been all sold out of reMIND Vol. 1 on Amazon for over a week now. Because of this, there are several computerized stores that are jacking up the price to $200 to $300 for a copy now. I assure you, this is not a good price to pay for the book because I will be reprinting it in several months and selling it again for the cover price. So if you really want a copy, then just join my mailing list and you will be notified when I launch my new Kickstarter (in about 5 months) and you will be able to get the first books off the press."

I really had a tough time getting immersed in this novel. The strongest aspect here is definitely the artwork. I really love the use of paper textures to make a more traditional look in a market full of plastic looking photoshop airbrushing. The way they bleed through panels unifies the layouts and the compositions are fantastic. That being said, while they're very well done, I don't really see this "new coffee table" scope that Brubaker refers to in the afterword. The inking is energetically visceral yet refined. Color choice and lighting are also expertly implemented. It reminds me of Mignola's Hellboy with it's selective detail and dramatic lighting. I feel like the style difference between Sonja and Victuals clashes, but that's pretty much a personal preference. I definitely love the power and energy in how all of the lizard characters are drawn, as well.

Speaking of the Lizard people, the story of this novel was tough for me to get into. I really thought Sonja would be the main character, but this definitely becomes Victuals' story. I think the shortcomings of the characters made this fantastic story hard for me to get immersed in. I think big fantasy stories like this heavily rely on a clear protagonist to guide the reader, and I feel like I got left behind here. Obviously, other readers were very engrossed in the story and characters, so you should definitely give it a shot if reMIND interests you. Overall, I think Brubaker has a lot to offer as reMIND vol.1 was obviously a very lengthy, intimate and hard won project to achieve. While reMIND was a miss for me, I'm definitely interested in whatever else he has to offer graphic novels.

This is a good story, and I like the art. But.. here's the problem. It's only available in hard cover, at $20 a pop. And each volume of "remind" is only half the story. So you gotta ask yourself: do you want to pay $40 for the whole story? There are a lot of wide, sweeping images, which means there is actually a lot less story in each volume than a similarly-sized graphic novel. I'd have happily paid $15 for the whole story, in one volume, paperback, which is more than your typical graphic novel.

It was good, but not good enough that I'd put another $20 in to find out how it ends.

What prevents the five stars is that I got a second printing from my Amazon order (feb 2013)and it seems that the binding is rough and color is a bit faded. But, that might be the stylings of the art work which is done beautifully. I enjoyed the story and will order the volume 2 as soon as it comes out.

I had heard about this online, and finally ordered a copy when it became available in amazon. Oddly enough, the day after I ordered it, I was at Wondercon in Anaheim, and met the author at his booth, nice guy! The book was in my mailbox two days later.
There is a different feel to this graphic novel. Physically this is different to other hard copies I have. The paper quality and colours are excellent, the book itself is very nicely put together and I am very happy with it.
As for the story, wow! So different from my usual fare. It starts with a girl on an island who loses her cat and just goes to places that are totally unexpected. Each chapter explores those plot twists and the story gets more bizarre, but maintains internal logic and consistency. Its a great meandering ride with good pacing and after finishing the book, I immediately ordered volume 2 to get to the end of the story. Certainly a book I will revisit a lot, for the story and for the fascinating story behind the creation of this novel.
Highly recommended.
