    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Oct 2, 2013

    This comic always delivers right at the end of every issue. It has become hard for me not to skip to the last page, because they usually leave us in wonder. Here was no exception. Like I said, Mind the Gap brings in a huge game changer that takes the flow of the comic into a different turn. Mind the Gap so gracefully gives the reader whiplash with how fast it brakes and switches gears. The sad thing about this issue is that we learn the comic is taking a break until December. Till then I will be waiting. Read Full Review

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek Oct 5, 2013

    While not everything has worked together as well as it was intended to throughout the first act, it's been a wild, fun and incredibly beautiful ride to experience. This issue brought a ton of issues to a close and opened up a new major plot point, one that will begin to carry act two when it arrives in the near future. With spectacular writing and gorgeous artwork, this issue keeps the high standard of the others, really capping off the first act in a big way. Congrats to the entire creative team for making such a great book, and one that will hopefully last a lot longer. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Oct 1, 2013

    MIND THE GAP is an awesome series, and I'm truly excited to see where we go in Act Two. Despite the series having an otherworldly mystery, its the focus on characters above all else that makes it so effective. And with a creative team that truly knows how to tell a great story, there's a lot to like here. So if you're not reading MIND THE GAP, what are you waiting for? You've got two months to catch up before it comes back! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Oct 4, 2013

    While this is indeed the end of the first act of “Mind The Gap”, it, rather fittingly, feels more like a metamorphosis. McCann deftly pulls back the veil on a number of mysteries that have been a part of the book since the very first issue, but ends the issue with even more mysteries going forward. Coupling wonderful character writing that manages to genuinely tug at the heartstrings with wonderful art that conveys the emotional weight of the issue, this was the perfect way to cap this act. A special note should also go to Jim McCann's letter at the end of this issue, which gives an even more personal context to the emotions of this issue. Bring on Act Two. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Oct 2, 2013

    The artwork is as top notch as ever. The past scenes by Dan McDaid are the highlight not only for their content, but for their rough and stylized delivery. McDaid's pencil work might not be as smooth and polished as main series artist Rodin Esquejo's, but it doesn't need to be to be just as effective. My favorite pages from Esquejo have to be the opening moth pages that take you to a fantastical place full of white light that are as rich with metaphor as they are wonder. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Oct 2, 2013

    MIND THE GAP is more than just a comic book. For the past fifteen issues Jim McCann has been unfolding this epic yarn. While some may feel that's a long period, each issue has added to the overall story, creating an even bigger picture. This issue marks the end of the first act. What it comes down to is people really should be reading this series. There are two trades already with a third due later this month. That gives readers plenty of time to catch up for the beginning of act II in December. It's a wonderful thing to be able to read a comic that is so driven by the story and also contains great art. You don't see this sort of thing everyday. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Oct 2, 2013

    This issue of Mind the Gap is certainly not a jumping on point for new readers. It does show, however, that McCann has a plan for where this series is going and knows just how to write a thriller comic that's satisfying and doesn't leave the reader wondering why they'd set out on the journey in the first place. Despite some artistic issues and a bit of information overload, this is a series worth catching up on and sticking with into the second part of the story. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Oct 2, 2013

    When It was announced that Act II would start in December, the feeling was there would be some sort of big payoff at the end of Act I but this really wasn't much of an ending. The mystery still continues and it seems there are even more people involved with many layers yet to still be exposed. We shall see how Act II opens and where things will progress but as of now us readers are left much like Elle, trapped in the dark. Read Full Review
