My REVIEW of Mind MGMT Volume One: The Manager

Synopsis: We've learned some of the secrets of Henry Lyme; now get ready to meet the rest of Mind Management! With the remains of the Management attempting to reform and hot on Lyme’s tail, the former spy is forced to seek help from other defectors around the globe, including the deadly Futurist, Duncan! 

Meanwhile, losing her memory has barely slowed journalist Meru down, as an attempt on her life puts her back on the hunt for Mind Management—and on a collision course with the terrible truths Lyme has hidden from her! 

Collecting MIND MGMT #7–#12, plus stories from Dark Horse Presents and i09!

Review: This second volume continues the paranoia and conspiracy that is Mind MGMT. It has the same feel as the first volume, but I found it easier to comprehend. This is probably because I was familiar with the world of Mind MGMT.

The story of one individual agent known as The Hulk is interspersed throughout the narrative. I really enjoyed his story and I found it blended into the main story excellently. 

I like this world because you don't know who to trust. Who really is good or bad? It's all about perspective.
The common ability of seeing the future is done in a very unique way. Those with the power can see what those around him are predisposed to do within a few miles radius. 

The artwork is the same as the first volume. It's very unique to this series. The watercolors and sketchiness give it a creepy feel. There are other things hidden throughout the book that will make the conspiracy theorists out there happy. 

I give this book a 4/5. If you enjoyed the first volume, you should definitely read this volume as well!
