These elements give the book its psychological thriller angle and make it even more entertaining. However, the best part about the read is the conclusion. In the twist ending, Maru discovers that she had previously trained to be a Mind Management agent and that Lyme had been lying to her the entire time.
It also teases the fact that she could potentially side with Mind Management rather than with Lyme, leaving the future in complete uncertainty. Ending things like this makes the book even more interesting and left me excited to read the next volume. Individual characters are more defined than they were previously, allowing readers to more easily recognize what is happening on every page.
However, motion still feels incredibly static and facial expressions routinely look strange. The Home Maker Review. The artwork is weak and distracts from the story. During the prologue, Kindt takes readers into the mind of Duncan, who is able to predict what people will say and do next. Because of his psychic abilities, Duncan is becoming bored with people and there is nothing left to surprise him.
This makes for an interesting chase sequence as Lyme and Meru have to predict his every move without getting caught themselves. In a suspenseful action sequence, Lyme and Meru have to run from the sniper who never misses his target. First, Kindt starts with a close-up of the bullet the sniper just fired. Then, the camera follows the bullet as it strikes a bird in mid-air. Finally, we see the bullet hitting the car from behind as Lyme makes his getaway. I throw away unpopped popcorn kernels even though they're technically edible. I'm trying like hell to pay back a student loan.
And so I've gritted my teeth, and I'm eating through all the sludge, the slidge, the cridge, I'm eating through all this food so crappy I made up terms for it because dammit, I wanna kill this debt. It's like I'm fuckin' John McClane.
MIND MGMT Volume 2: The Futurist Review | Sequart Organization
I know I can cross that glass barefoot. Just mind over matter. And the story is distracting enough that I mostly forget that I'm eating horrible garbage that will power me through a work day and get me micrometers closer to that distant, distant goal. Mind MGMT has tempered my rage and disappointment, and suppressed my gag reflex just enough. I thank you, Matt Kindt. Again, go fuck yourself. View all 9 comments.

This series is still going strong.

And as with Lost, you are lost in places, and that's part of the mode of storytelling world we're living in.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I like it a lot! Jul 07, Helen rated it really liked it Recommends it for: There are multiple parallel stories, flashbacks, flashforwards, yet every thread is woven together skillfully to advance the narrative. The reader will truly become absorbed in the fast-paced graphic novel.. I am looking forward to further installments of the meandering, complicated tale of a few motley humans trying to get away from Mind Mgt!

Review: ‘Mind MGMT: Volume 2: The Futurist’
This volume is impressive, but below par to volume 1. I see this volume a character development, it's about brining the team together. Again there are many twists and turns and several engaging moments that make me in awe of Kindt all over again. Such a talented story teller. Sep 15, Get X Serious rated it it was amazing.

There's really no way to improve on this series. I mean, the story, the art, the fucking layout! Some of it is seeping outside the lines. And then there's this layout where the Yeah, so And then there's this layout where there's literally three different stories being told at once, but it's all very coherent and they intertwine perfectly. The only problem is that my library doesn't have the final two volumes of this yet, so I'm like, fucking nervous about finishing what they do have available. Yeah, it's that good.
It's so good that it's giving me anxiety View all 3 comments. Sep 14, zxvasdf rated it it was amazing Shelves: When I reviewed Mind Mgmt Vol 1, I had hoped that there wouldn't be a sequel, because the story felt finished, in that sense that there would still be mystery, but because it was so well told it could rest there in it's glittering wrapping and satin bow.
Well, Matt Kindt had a bigger story to tell. It's obvious it was there all along, and to read Volume 1 is like peering at a map of the world with a magnifying glass. The Futurist has us step back a little, let the scope expand. Mind Management is When I reviewed Mind Mgmt Vol 1, I had hoped that there wouldn't be a sequel, because the story felt finished, in that sense that there would still be mystery, but because it was so well told it could rest there in it's glittering wrapping and satin bow.
Mind Management is bigger than any one of us guessed. It begins similarly to Volume 1, with Meru lost in her livingroom, to a frantic pursuit of clues. Again, this ride takes Meru all over the world, a sort of greatest hits of the previous tome, to gather a few of the still "righteous" disbanded agents of Mind Management.
MIND MGMT, Volume Two: The Futurist
The race is for a list of names of former Mind Management agents because a former agent by the name of The Eraser is seeking to resurrect Mind Management, for nefarious purposes, of course. Otherwise Lyme and Co. Yep, Lyme's neck deep in the action now! Duncan is The Futurist, a man who is perpetually bored. He can sense the thoughts of people within a fifteen mile radius, and from these thoughts he assembles a collage of events which accurately predicts the future.
Very rarely does the unknown encounter him, and these moments are to be cherished. He also is able to kill a person with the mere point of his finger because he can see in a person's mind the exact belief to undermine, thus creating in the victim the belief that he is going to die. Perrier, now half a twin, has the first half, a map. Duncan lives in the future, so how do you catch a man who doesn't want to be found?
With the entire cast of Mind Management Vol 1 and Vol 2 in play, there are revelations abound, and the promise of a potentially world shaking disaster when the psychic warriors of the 21st century take sides. Someday when he's done and Mind Management is bundled in a single massive tome, it'll be required reading for the real Mind Management. Rather, Matt's book, but, hey, it came from Matt's head. Because the subject matter of Mind Management is about the malleability of identity. We fall through life blissfully confident in our identity.
We are who we say we are. What if there's people out there manipulating our core selves through advertising, medicine, mind wiping? We wouldn't know any different. What's left is an existential emptiness, a feeling that something's missing. I believe that's an all too familiar feeling And there's Matt Kindt. Maybe Scott Snyder's right to be afraid of him. Who knows what things he's put in his book, that leap out into our subconscious even as we appreciate his work. You could be mind managed while you're reading Mind Management. Jan 13, Stewart Tame rated it really liked it. There's more to this story than appears at first glance, not that that should surprise anybody.
We meet more agents and begin to get a sense of where the story might be going. What drives this series is Kindt's masterful handling of psychic powers.

We've seen this sort of tale countless times before, but rarely handled this cleverly or believably. There's a sense of paranoia that has one frantically scanning the page for hidden meanings in backgrounds and seemingly casual poses. The story isn't There's more to this story than appears at first glance, not that that should surprise anybody. The story isn't particularly new, but, in Kindt's hands, it feels fresh and innovative.
I'm really liking this so far. On to volume 3! Jun 03, Artemy rated it really liked it Shelves: It gets even crazier! I really like what Kindt is doing with this series. Sep 22, Nils rated it really liked it Shelves: Spannende Fortsetzung, bei der mich der Zeichenstil immer noch begeistert. Auch die Handlung bleibt spannend, scheint aber etwas zu zerfasern. Oct 06, Eastham Erik rated it liked it.
A required entry to get from A-Z of Matt Kindt's awesome story. As such, only a 3 out of 5 as nothing really new is explored in Volume Two.
