    Kaplan, Pearson and Otsmane-Elhaou are a creative triumvirate that I'm hoping we haven't seen the last of. Pulling off some outstanding narrative misdirection and delivering a thoughtful look at the insidious nature of technology and social media, Mindset is, for my money, the glittering crown jewel in Vault's already stellar library of titles.

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Jan 13, 2023

    Mindset #6 is a terrific science fiction tale, creepier because it hits so close to home. The plotting is deviously careful and while it has a solid ending, there is just enough disquiet that it never completely loses its disquieting tone. I think this will be a story worth a couple re-reads. Read Full Review

    The final issue of this excellent miniseries brings the all-too-real narrative of a mind-controlling app to an exciting and satisfying conclusion, while revealing even more hidden truths about our modern digital society. The incredible work of the whole creative team has me hoping that 'Mindset' will be considered for a few awards this year. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 11, 2023

    I enjoyed this series a lot overall as it played with some interesting dynamics and there was a good layer of whodunnit that became clearer as it went on. The early back-and-forth nature threw it off a bit but the exploration of control, the look into how things were developed, and then getting the reality of it here in the finale was a lot of fun. I do wish we got a bit more on the relationship between Hanna and Ben as even in the final pages I kept feeling like she was the one truly in control and playing him for all it's worth. That may or may not have been the intent but I do admit to liking some of that ambiguity. It's a strong book as an overall work with a true finale in full with great artwork. It's definitely not a brisk action-oriented work but one that plays to mystery elements quite well. Read Full Review

    Though the story is satisfactory, it ends up being dense just to be dense at times. It's more evident than ever that Pearson's stunning artwork carried it through to the end. Read Full Review

    While it wasn't this blowout ending I was expecting, it ended well enough for me to feel satisfied overall. I think a reread of the series as a whole is in order. It was a solid series. I thought the execution, the art, the idea of all was really good. I just felt like there was going to be a lot more emphasis on the twist, and that wasn't the case.
