In a new title from Vault Comics, a tech geek discovers mind control. How very cool, of course. Until we see the dark side!

Mindset #1 is written by Zack Kaplan, with art by John J. Pearson, and lettering by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.

The prologue starts us off: something terrible has happened, and it appears to have all come about due to mind control. And the visual treatment of the story is a real treat: impressionistic scenes of opulence and luxury, contrasted with gritty streetlighting, with tightly compacted faces. The dialogue has an immediacy and strength, the terse words, the claustrophobic conversations.

It’s varied in its panel presentation, the visuals are fresh and original, and it’s a tale worth teasing toward your mind. Control yourself long enough to pick up this imaginative first issue!

Vault Comics, Mindset #1, $3.99 for 28 pages of content

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
