    Geekality - Julius Freeman Nov 26, 2012

    I know it's a bit out there, but what other book leaves you on the edge of your seat month in and month out? And let's not forget Esquejo's art. I don't think the book would have the same effect if another artist took on the task of drawing this complex, compelling tale of life, mystery, and death. Or is that you're afraid to read such a complex, thrilling story? Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Nov 21, 2012

    A great mystery is always fun to read and getting a well-crafted one in a comic book format is a treat. Jim McCann has been weaving quite a web since the beginning. What started out as a simple mugging is turning into an elaborate conspiracy that leaves you scratching your head. We still don't have all the answers but that's good because you won't want the story to end just yet. Even though this series is all about the big mystery and this is the sixth issue, you can still easily jump in here but of course you'll want to see how the story started to fully appreciate all the details. If you're looking for a great mystery with great art and colors, this is the series you've been looking for. Read Full Review

    Digitl Noob - Russ Pirozek Nov 24, 2012

    This series is incredible. Six issues in, and the hook is firmly implanted. While the story seems to bite off a bit more than it can chew at times, things always seem to even themselves out. The complicated story of Ellis Peterssen is beginning to take shape, even while more pieces are being added. Brilliant writing, beautiful artwork and bright, striking colors make this series a must-read every month. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 27, 2012

    I find myself frustratingly and helplessly caught up in the intrigue, as usual, even though the story has purposely avoided giving up much of anything. Story of my life. Read Full Review

    It will be interesting to see how things play out and if Elle can potentially help people from inside the Garden. It would create the dilemma of Elle being to save everyone but herself And even if she could save herself could she turn her back on all of those in need in the Garden? Needless to say I will be back for issue #7 to see what transpires. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Nov 21, 2012

    The art is pretty strong once again, with the highlight being the veryfirst page. It's just stunning, so a tip of the hat to artistRodin Esquejo. Both the cover and variant are pretty good, with the former one being more striking in terms of the story. The most interesting part is the dialogue between Elle's mom and the doctor. It's all vague stuff, but interesting nonetheless. Hopefully we'll get a big payoff soon. The ending also is something readers whom have been reading since squareone will find intriguing.Overall, a pretty strong issue of Mind the Gap. The writing is at its strongest, some really intense stuff going on. Technically not really much is revealed, but it grabs your attention and doesn't let it waver. And it's not a bad way to jump on if you've missed the first five issues, things look to get more intense as Mind the Gap continues. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Nov 20, 2012

    Looking back, this is more of a 'big picture' review and not just of the single issue. It's difficult to look at these from a 1 issue perspective knowing how much of the previous issues are being used and what they building to be used in the future. Not everyone is a fan of the slow burn style books that arcs span 10-12 issues, but if you do then this one is a keeper. Mind the Gap has beautiful art and a story that has way more hits than misses. Definitely consider it the next time you are in the shop. Read Full Review
