HEROES INTERVIEW :: MATT KINDT

February 20, 2013 By: Seth Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Interviews

If you’re familiar with the work of Matt Kindt, you know he’s one of the hardest working creators in comics. Over the past several years he’s received critical acclaim for his graphic novels Super Spy, 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man, Revolver, and Pistolwhip.¬† More recently, you’ve probably seen his work on Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. and in Mind Mgmt, the monthly¬†Dark Horse¬†title he writes, illustrates and designs.¬† Kindt’s previous graphic novels suggest he possesses one of the more original voices in comics.¬† Now¬†with¬†Mind Mgmt, not only do you have further support for his originality, but you’re getting monthly examples of it.¬† For a deeper look at Mind Mgmt, check out my review of issues 1-5 HERE.¬† In the meantime, enjoy the interview.

Seth Peagler (SP): Mind Mgmt is your first big monthly book, but it’s also one where you’re writing, illustrating and directing the design of every aspect of it. What were some things that contributed to your decision to tackle something of this scale at this point in your career?

Matt Kindt (MK): Well, to be honest, I feel like graphic novels were getting too easy from a creative stand point. I was getting a little bored. And I was tired of disappearing for a year to finish a book and then launching a book and disappearing again. Now I get to launch a new issue every month and get a little more interaction with readers. I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever go back to a GN format. I’m having way too much fun doing a monthly series. (more…)

STAFF PICKS :: 2012 FAVORITES :: SETH PEAGLER

December 20, 2012 By: Seth Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

SETH’S FAVORITES OF 2012 :: It’s been an eclectic year for comics.¬† Amid all the relaunches and reboots, company-wide crossovers and such, there were still some truly entertaining books that caught my attention.¬† It’s like I always say, you might not like everything new, and might not like the directions of some books or companies, but if you take the time to look around, you’ll find plenty of quality comics to enjoy.

Favorite Super-hero Book of 2012:¬†Wolverine and the X-men/Hawkeye: I couldn’t narrow it down to one.¬† Wolverine and the X-men, in spite of having to weave in and out of the giant Avengers vs. X-men story, managed to be one of the most consistently joyous comics of the year for me.¬† Much of this is owed to writer Jason Aaron, who kept the tone of the book consistent, which may well have been a challenge this year.¬† Kudos also to artists Chris Bachalo and Nick Bradshaw for matching the energy and humor in Aaron’s scripts, and adding their own unique takes¬†on these characters.

HEROES REVIEW :: MIND MGMT #1-5

October 18, 2012 By: Seth Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Reviews

Trust me, I get it.¬† Money’s tight for a lot of us, and when you plop down $3.99 for a twenty page comic, you expect it to at least be worth the cost of admission.¬† It’s easy to buy a monthly title just because you always have.¬† It unconsciously becomes more about the routine than the book itself, and inevitably gets to be frustrating when you keep buying the book in spite of your waning interesting in it.¬† Some¬†readers understandably turn to the act of “trade waiting,” or¬†foregoing the purchase of a monthly title in favor of¬†the more¬†affordable trade paperback.¬† Still, the monthly comic book holds potential that isn’t always appreciated in these jaded times.¬† Here’s a brief look at what I think is one of the most underappreciated, innovative monthly comics on the stands today: Matt Kindt’s Mind Mgmt.

STAFF PICKS :: MIND MGMT #4 :: AUGUST 22, 2012

August 17, 2012 By: Heroes Online Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

DOUG’S PICK :: ¬†Mind MGMT #4: Mind MGMT¬†is not your typical comic book- it‚Äôs so good even the paper stock is amazing. Shadowy groups, ambiguous allies and even a flight 815 draw many comparisons to TV‚Äôs Lost. This sci-fi mystery is moving at breakneck speed with each issue demanding multiple readings. ¬†The main story is of a writer who is investigating a flight where everyone, save one, lost their memories. Writer /artist Matt Kindt uses everything available to immerse you in the story, including the inside covers and margins which give background to the title organization.
