Issue 23 of Mind MGMT is here to remind you — we are all forgetful sometimes — that this is a series about many things, but focused on Meru; she is the main character, and don’t you forget again.
Unlike when the monk was able to see her as a majestic warrior, the reminder is done differently this time, but the effect is similar. It is easy to get caught up in the other aspects of Matt Kindt‘s fascinating, lovely series about miserable people with fantastic and unique mental powers. Powers that contribute to their misery and woe. So a gentle, or ferocious, reminder is needed at times.
Each and every week, I, “Bob McKenzie!” Henchman 21 and “Doug McKenzie!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of April 23, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
It’s time to put the spotlight on Dark Horse Comics this week thanks to a new series, an excellent one-shot, and a new issue for one of their best series. There’s not a ton of books this week, but it’s a good time to check out some other stuff. Oh, and Marvel is starting another event this week, if you’re into that kind of thing, which I sometimes am. But let’s just focus on Dark Horse this week, and maybe throw in a little DC for good measure. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got hockey to watch, so why don’t you just keep yourself occupied with The GoD List!
In many ways, Matt Kindt‘s Mind MGMT is a rather haunting look at memory, and the damaging manipulations and gaslighting characters have to contend with from external powers. The first six issues alone stand as one of the more compelling mind-fucks in recent memory (along with being a statement on desperation).
In issue sixteen we get a more thorough telling of Julinae, the woman who killed her family, purportedly, and was the subject of Meru’s first book. Her story has been hinted at on the margins (quite literally, and sorry) and discussed some through the proxy Meru’s own tale, but here she finally gets the spotlight, and like many of the threads introduced, her revelations have a vital importance to the primary story.
Each and every week, I, “Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Henchman21, and “Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Punk!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of September 25, 2013. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
I have decided to mix it up a little this week, and as such, instead of my usual three or so books I have nine new issues to check out. There’s a ton great issues out this week, and with all of the books listed, there’s something for everyone. Take a look, go to a store, and buy yourself some good comics, because good comics make me happy and they make you happy. So let’s all get happy with The GoD List!
