DDJamesB reviewed Mindset #3 Sep 22, 2022

It definitely did not feel as strong as the first two. I do think it was still good in its own way. Mindset is still one of my favorite new comics, and probably in my top 3 for the year.

I enjoyed it. It got pretty close to real life, which if done bad, can ruin the comic experience, but they nailed it. A good Silver Coin.

The quality of this issue is great. I also think it could mean more when all the issues are put together. But like the Passageway and the free comic book day story, it delivers high quality visuals, and lacks quality depth of story.

This series has been one of the better things I've read this year. It's amazing what little dialogue it had, and the power of the art could convey. It's a great series that brings you on a ride, with a great ending.
