Overview

But in a world where people can rewrite reality itself, can she trust anything she sees? Collects MIND MGMT #1#6.

"Matt Kindt is the man. Superb series." —Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prizewinning author

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Kindt’s latest, a writer named Meru, inspired by the story of the fictional Flight 815, in which a planeload of people are simultaneously struck with amnesia, sets out to uncover the truth behind the bizarre event. She soon discovers a town in Mexico where all of the adults have fallen victim to self-destructive monomania, a hint that whatever happened on Flight 815 was not unique. Dogged by a pair of fanatic and unstoppable pursuers, aided by an assortment of strangers, Meru’s quest takes her around the world to the one man who can explain to her what is going on—a man known as Harry Lyme. Kindt (Super Spy, Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E.) excels at complicated mysteries, and this is no exception, with numerous allusions to pop culture, as the names of Harry Lyme (The Third Man) and Flight 815 (Lost) indicate. While his art is cartoony and often looks dashed off, the storytelling keeps the mystery rocketing along. (Apr.)

Such a strange book, I don't know where to start. Matt Kindt writes and draws a mind-bending tale involving every possible kind of mental manipulation imagininable. The book has quite a few twists that even the main character, Meru struggles with. At times, there were too many high level ideas that possibly made the story harder to follow. If the ideas were spread out more it might have been a better decision. Kindt's art isn't normal comics fare but it works well other than multiple female charcaters being too similar. On the editorial side, the book's design is gorgeous. Overall, a head-scratching good time.
