As Meru’s investigation of MIND MGMT takes her to China and its “miracle dolphins,” she begins to realize that the clues she’s been following have been intentionally left for her. What do the horrors she’s seen on her journey have to do with a psychic espionage agency dating back to WWI, and why does its most notorious defector, Henry Lyme, want Meru to find him?

    I seriously got chills when I looked at the cover of this issue and it only got better inside. The side stories are still a fantastic read that add to the depth of the story and I could honestly read an entire issue of just those stories. Perhaps they'll make a one-shot issue collecting them so readers can see just how much of the world they already know about. I don't know if there are any better books shipping this week because this one stole my heart instantly. If you're not reading this book you need to be, it will be talked about for years to come and is sure to win all kinds of awards at the end of the year. Personally, I just want a poster of the cover to stare at all day for inspiration and beauty. Read Full Review

    What I love about this book is the amount of story you get in them. Matt Kindt has taken the time to use almost everything piece of page in this printing to provide you with the most bang for your comic dollar. The front and back inside covers have a side story that enriches the history of the Mind MGMT. There is a Mind MGMT case file story at the end of the book, which profiles another significant character in the Mind MGMT history. Also, in the margins of the comic panels are Field Guide tips which outline suggestions for Mind MGMT field operatives. All of these little details really enrich the story, and if you take a longer look at the cover of this issue (I almost missed it the first time), you'll notice even more! Read Full Review

    Another wonderful issue. Honestly, if you're a fan of Vertigo ongoing series, there's no excuse to not be reading this. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Aug 1, 2012

    Kindt's sparse, water-colored style really shines this issue. The pages that feature the visions of an old man look especially stunning. They are bigger and grander than anything we have seen in this series so far. Even the look in the old man's eye as he watches Meru walk away is stunning. Kindt knows when to breeze over a scene and when to bring it close for detail. The effect is superb. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Aug 1, 2012

    There is sadness in "Mind MGMT" #3: the sadness in confusion, the sadness in knowing too much. No one in this book seems happy, but the lesson is that they all still continue forward. No character gives up and they are always read to take the next stop. With so many dense mysteries swirling through these pages, it will be hard for readers to give up once they are hooked. Kindt is a smart creator -- he hooks readers from the very start, reapplying a new hook on every page. Read Full Review

    The book's pace should pick up somewhat with next month's issue, which should get readers to a big reveal in the series. Read Full Review
