Praise for MIND MGMT:

“If you are a fan of mysteries, if you are a fan of Kindt, if you are a fan of comics: pick this up! But, more importantly, if you have been waiting for the trades and do not see the value in picking up a comic on a monthly basis anymore, do yourself a favor and give MIND MGMT a shot. It very well could be the book that makes you want to go back to the comic shop.”—Comics Bulletin

“This book is something special. The story has so much potential and longevity that I see it going on for years. Add the fact that Kindt is writing the story’s history on the front and back cover and you’re getting a heck of a package. Do not miss out on this book! 5/5”—Comic Bastards

“I would love to see more books like Kindt’s MIND MGMT at places like Dark Horse. Though I’m sure books like this are risky and don’t get as much high-profile attention, the quality is simply sublime.”—Comic Book Resources

“I highly recommend this series for any sci-fi fans out there, especially if you like work by authors that twist your mind like Philip K. Dick.”—Bloody Disgusting
