Last issue’s THREE cliffhangers are answered here, leading to even more questions surrounding the attack on Elle Peterssen. A new person is introduced, but are they friend or foe? And Elle quickly finds that the situation she is in has rapidly gone from a 10 to 10,000!
The anxiously awaited ongoing mystery deepens as the web of suspects and lies spreads.
Issue 2 was a little less mind blowing than 1 was, but that’s on account of me having some kind of idea of what to expect as far as McCann’s insane writing style. I will say that after issue 1, I thought I had a few things figured out, but this installment made me doubt myself to such a a high degree that I’m intimidated to even make another guess!
While the mystery is the main appeal, and honestly, the best executed I have ever seen in a comic, it is not all that Mind the Gap has to offer. There is great character development even just from issue 1 to 2. There is also a semi-paranormal aspect to the book, but not in the way you may think. The approach is very cerebral.
If I had to sum up Mind the Gap in one word, it would be original. There is not a single comic on the market even remotely like this one.
Bottom line(cause Stonecold said so): 2 issues in and this is already easily the comic I am recommending the most. I think that there’s a little bit of everything to please all comic fans. I won’t say where it ranks , but it’s a top 5 favorite for me as far as current books go. And only 2 books in! Unless the ball gets drastically dropped, we’re looking at a masterpiece in the making. Not to mention a fine example as to the potential of the medium in moving towards the future.
