THE HONOR ROLL: August 26, 2015 Releases

So this week there seemed to be a theme with our contributors as to what the best book of the week was. Spoiler filled pics of it below. Lets get to it!

NEW MGMT #1 – Everyone

James Kaplan

Don’t let the #1 fool you. This is the finale to Mind MGMT, and it’s an issue that made me teary-eyed and do a fist pump within the span of a page or two. What Matt Kindt has done with Mind MGMT is a really spectacular, special achievement. It’s an intricate, intelligent story with warmth, humor, sadness, clever twists, with wonderfully idiosyncratic art. It’s a book that will stand the test of time, and this issue was a worthy conclusion.

Bravo! Henry Lyme has come full circle. This quiet solitary panel really displays Matt Kindt’s genius storytelling. You will be missed Mind Mgmt. Now onto Dept H!

Kulbir Mann

I know I seem to pick this every month but this time will be the last, because it is the last ever issue. The finale was fantastic and the aftermath gives us some time to reflect and for the characters to rest. Its beautiful and the agency is in better hands whilst we all say goodbye to those we have known and loved. I shall miss this book dearly

Pete Buser

I’ve been reading MIND MGMT since the start, and reading a series through to its conclusion is one of the best reasons to read comics.  Matt Kindt created an intricate, mind bending story with his words and art.  He also had his wife and daughter chip in.

It is sad to get to the end, but so satisfying.  This is what long form, comic book storytelling is all about.
