When the passengers on Flight 815 suddenly develop amnesia mid-flight, everyone is left wondering what happened. People continued on with their lives not regaining their memory. Meru, an author with one book under her belt, is trying to recapture the memories to put into a second best-seller. Instead, she stumbles upon a wild goose chase of sorts that leads her to Mind Mgmt, a group whose members have the ability to coerce and alter a person’s thoughts.
If Flight 815 sounds familiar, then you might be a Lost fan. With a foreword by Damon Lindelof, Mind Mgmt certainly starts off a bit Lost-esque. I was immediately intrigued by the mystery of the “Amnesia Flight”, and the subsequent journey that Meru takes to discover what is going on. I found this graphic novel to be quite compelling. Great premise with a vivid and almost gritty style of drawing. I had an advanced review e-copy so I found that version to be a bit difficult to read, as the text was a bit low res and blurry. Perhaps that is why I found it a little hard to follow, when I was trying to decipher what the dialogue was. That being said, I believe that to only be because of the advance e-copy and not an indication of the final print version.
At the end of the chapters, there were several side stories, numbered -1, -2 and so forth. These were interesting as it shed a bit of light on different aspects, but I found some of them too disassociating with the overall story.
