Issue written by Jim McCann, art by Rodin Esquejo & Sonia Oback.
This exciting new series is what I look for when I subscribe to a new comic. Mind the Gap follows a woman that has been the victim of an attack at a subway station and the family and friends that she holds near and dear. Gap quickly takes a thrilling turn as you find out the main character is in a coma but can see everyone, including those, we the living, cannot see. It’s the supernatural meets America’s typical everyday dysfunctional family thrown in with a little of a spy thriller.
Artists Rodin Esquejo and Sonia Oback have done a great job following the direction that writer Jim McCann wants to go while giving subtle hints throughout the book as to what is really going on. I, for one, am excited to see how they reveal the identity of “Hoodie” and the operation he is a part of. I also like how the art of the book is great and actually tells other stories within what is being written. As long as you can pay attention to the art and the story as well as the background, you are going to want to get this book because you can’t wait to see what happens next.
McCann has done an exceptional job when explaining the main characters personality with song and memories when even she doesn’t know who she is. The overall feeling I got was that everything she needs to know in order to put the pieces together is right at the surface and that she just needs to get past her own personal barriers in order to find out what truly happened in the subway station.
Right when I thought I knew what was going to happen next, I was wrong. The ending was GREAT and threw me for a loop! I didn’t see it coming until it happened and that last page cemented my reasoning for sticking with this book. I can’t wait to read the next one.
