MIND MGMT Volume Two: The Futurist

Created, Written & Illustrated by Matt Kindt

Dark Horse Books

Our heroine Meru finds herself in her apartment with her mind a blank, about to begin the cycle of working on a book and following clues to former Mind Management agent Henry Lyme. But this time she has a vague sense that something isn't right. When she realizes that she's just gotten mail delivery on Sunday, she goes after the messenger for answers. She works her way up the chain, finally arriving at an advertising agency run by a man named Brinks. When she asks him about Mind Management a flood of memories come back to him about his career as an agent. Then all hell breaks loose: Lyme bursts in, too late to prevent Brinks' assassination, but he escapes with Meru.

This sets up the dynamic for the stories in this arc. Instead of Meru following clues to Lyme, she works with him to contact former Mind Management agents before they get killed. In the course of gathering a group of counter-agents Meru learns more and more about her own past. One indication of this different focus can be found in the content of the vertical border text that runs on the left side of most pages. Instead of the MIND MGMT Field Guide that ran through the first volume (which returns at the end of this one) we get Premeditated: A True Crime Novel, Meru's first (and only) book.

Kindt has raised the stakes here, telling more and more about the Mind Management organization, while setting up a power struggle between opposing groups of agents. I can hardly wait to see what happens next!
