    There is little more to be said about this series than that it is an incredible work of art. On every page, a small piece of a complex narrative is revealed, leaving it poised to make a huge turn when the tenth issue emerges. Even without dialog, this series manages to amaze, leaving many clues and revealing more in the plot of this issue as the others, if not more. Much adulation goes to Rodin Esquejo, Arif Priano and Dan McDaid for taking this unusual idea and making it work brilliantly, especially in a series that is as narrative as this. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno Apr 3, 2013

    Speaking of those who can't speak for themselves, this issue we have a special "Silent issue" that uses very little text. Additionally we have Dan McDaid, and series regular Rodin Esquejo on art. As usual this installment adds another layer to the mystery and the drama! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Apr 8, 2013

    An important issue credibly done by its writer and artists, but its attempt at silence seems rather lacking in execution and purpose. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - xMatt Apr 5, 2013

    This issue was like a shot of adrenaline into the chest for Mind the Gap. Where the series had somewhat stagnated in the previous two issues, this one speeds everything up and dials the action up, too. As a theatre and arts student myself, it was great seeing some of the references to that world and just how important stage is to these characters. There's a lot happening here if you can interpret the art and the character developments are just as important and entertaining as those pertaining to the story. The cliffhanger definitely leaves McCann's audience eagerly awaiting more. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Dave Christian Apr 4, 2013

    The book was a quick read, and left the reader feeling somewhat empty. The story had more of a backup feel, and didnt have the weight of a typical Jim McCann story. Hopefully issue #10 sees the return of McCanns storytelling coupled with McDaids art. While the side trip of issue #9 is entertaining in many aspects, it falls short of Mind the Gaps usual spectacular pieces. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Apr 3, 2013

    I think I am just so mad because I built this comic up to be awesome and now the issue after my first review is one of the worst issues I have ever read. Look, there is no doubt Mind the Gap will pick up next issue. It is just a wasted month because this is one of my favorite comics. I will just have to wait until next month to enjoy this awesome story again. Read Full Review
