Mind Mgmt Volume One: The Manager by Matt Kindt - Paul's REVIEW

**I was provided an ecopy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Mind Mgmt Volume One: The Manager
Author/Artist: Matt Kindt
Year Published: 2013

Synopsis: Reporting on a commercial flight where everyone aboard lost their memories, a young journalist stumbles onto a much bigger story, the top-secret Mind Management program. Her ensuing journey involves weaponized psychics, hypnotic advertising, talking dolphins, and seemingly immortal pursuers, as she attempts to find the flight’s missing passenger, the man who was MIND MGMT’s greatest success—and its most devastating failure. But in a world where people can rewrite reality itself, can she trust anything she sees?

Review: The storytelling in this graphic novel really pulled me in. So many mysteries appear in this novel. It had me thinking the whole time. It is a spy/investigator/conspiracy story with hints of X-Men, Watchmen. and Wanted.

The artwork is very simple, but it matches the tone of the graphic novel. 

The themes aren't that original, but it's a nice take on the secret society with super powers working under the government and is behind all historical events story. The ending was left open, but there is a sequel due out in October. 

I give this graphic novel a 4/5. The storytelling is done well and it had me thinking the whole time.
