This Week’s Finest: New MGMT #1

New MGMT 1 Kindt
Matt Kindt

By Matt Kindt

This week, Matt Kindt draws to a close his outstanding creator owned series Mind MGMT. The dust has settled on last month’s emotional confrontation with the Eraser. In the end, Meru triumphed, but it was not without a price. Lives had been lost. Also, the burden of command now rested solely on her shoulders. After spending the last 35 issues, chasing, investigating and fighting Mind MGMT, Meru holds in her hands the power to take the newly reborn agency in whichever direction she chooses. She can either destroy it or reshape it. That is, if it does not alter her first.

Conflict had been one of the constants of Mind MGMT since its debut. Henry’s conflict with his family, projected tragically onto the citizens of Zanzibar; the pursuit of the Immortals; Meru’s antagonism with Henry (really every character’s antagonism with Henry); the Eraser’s schemes, and so on.

Indubitable Issues and Pull List (8/19/15)

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Tyler’s Recommendations: 
Bizarro #3
“The comic equivalent of a buddy-roadtrip-comedy, Bizarro has been a blast. Heath Corson delivers a truly funny story of two guys, making their way to Canada, stopping random instances of villainy along the way. Jimmy Olsen and Bizarro make a great pair, and the sublime artwork from Gustavo Duarte creates a unique and brilliant offering from DC. It’s only a six-issue mini, so there’s still time to hop on now and enjoy the ride, plus it’s all-ages, so you can read it with/to your kids, siblings, young relatives, etc.”
