Book Description

30 Oct 2012 Mind the Gap
Elle Peterssen is young, wealthy, and beautiful - and there is a reason someone tried to kill her! Only, Elle doesn't remember any of this. Mind the Gap, the new series by the Eisner Award-winning writer Jim McCann (Return of the Dapper Men), is a mystery with a paranormal twist. Elle, in a spirit form detached from her comatose body, must not only unravel the mystery of her attacker's identity and motive, but her entire life as well. Who can she trust, in both this word and in the gap she exists in that lies between life and death? Deceit, secrets, and hidden agendas are everywhere in a story where everyone is a suspect, and no one is innocent. Collects Mind the Gap #1-5.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting mystery book 19 Dec 2012
By Burns
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A well written book with lots of cultural references which can become slightly distracting and feel like unnatural dialogue at times.

Bought this because I assumed it was based in London with the "Mind the Gap" title as I love fiction which explores the mystical side of the city but it seems like the author is just an anglophile taking everything that is currently "hip".

Also am not a fan of the computer generated art. The story is based around a mystery which doesn't look to be being wrapped up any time soon.

All that said the characters were well rounded and engaging and the author created a believable world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Art to Partnered with Greatly Crafted Mystery 24 Dec 2012
By Craig W - Published on Amazon.com
Mind The Gap by Jim McCann and Rodin Esquejo is the story of a young wealthy New Yorker (Elle) who has been put in a coma after being attacked. She is transported into a sort of coma world with other coma victims. The mystery deepens the more we find out more about Elle's friends and family. McCann gives you just enough to stay intrigued and guessing on who is behind the attack but can't quite prove it. All the characters are well thought out, real and unique in their own way. Esquejo's are is nothing short of spectacular. His detail and realness is second to none. Sonia Oback's colors add the tone for each scene.

If you're a mystery fan who is willing to dive into the spiritual this is the book for you. But be warned after reading this you'll just watch and wait for the calendar go by until the next volume comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mystery Comic series with appeal to non-comic readers 4 Nov 2012
By Aww Coffee No - Published on Amazon.com
I read comics. A lot of comics. Even some of the best of them I would never recommend to anyone who does not like the graphic novel already.

This is not Superheroes. This is not Bloody and Empty. This is a contemporary New York crime mystery with a special spice blend of lucid comas and dark hidden family secrets. This isn't a story about magic... but there is some rotten science a foot I can tell you that. Ever wanted to hang out with coma patients inside their head? Do it in this comic. Ever want to see what happens to their loved ones? Do it in this comic! Ever want to follow the detectives and doctors that try and solve the case? Follow them OR BEAT THEM TO IT. If you do not like science fiction elements do not let them keep you from this comic... let your love of a good mystery and layered contemporary characters win out.

This comic is for people who LOVE mysteries. Do you watch any tv show and try and figure out the killer before the show does? Are you ultimately depressed when you are always right? THIS COMIC IS FOR YOU. Beautifully drawn with clarity and written with layers of meaning, the team behind Mind the Gap give you all the clues you need to try and figure out this one before any of the cast do. So either go along for the ride in a wonderfully written tale of betrayal and loyalty or pick over the tiny clocks giving you actual times to help you make your own timeline and eliminate suspects. This is a who-done-it that leaves me dying to read what is coming next because the twists are that unexpected and oh so fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jim McCann is amazing 14 Jan 2013
By Jairam Ganpat - Published on Amazon.com

This book has some of the greatest pacing I have ever seen in comics. Jim is setting up a masterpiece here and I suggest you start at the beginning while these trades are still available.

5.0 out of 5 stars I do mind the Gap!! 28 Jan 2013
By Roberto Briceno - Published on Amazon.com
If you really like a mystery and storytelling that has a lot of twists, this book is for you. The art work in the book is very solid. McCann really shines in his creator-own book when complex characters. I love the monthly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 24 Jun 2013
By Scott William Foley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd heard excellent things about Mind the Gap and saw that the reviews were quite favorable, so imagine my surprise when I found myself disappointed by this first volume.

I can sum up my dissatisfaction with one simple reason: I did not care about a single character.

Ellis, the main character, is attacked in the subway and taken to the hospital. There she has physically entered a coma but her psyche has traveled to the astral plane where she interacts with other coma sufferers. Elle must work out her own attack as she struggles to remember even the most basic of facts about herself.

The list of potential attackers is quite large: her mother, her father, her brother, her boyfriend, a few doctors, as well as what is implied to be a clandestine organization of some sort. But here's the thing - Elle is not especially likable. Frankly, nothing about her character makes me sympathize with her nor do I really care who attacked her. This is, of course, a problem when the entire series appears to be hanging on that core plot point.

The dialogue jarred me a bit as well. The problem with trying to write trendy, cool dialogue is that it becomes dated rather quickly and if a reader happens to be neither trendy nor cool (such as me), the dialogue reads incredibly hokey.

Finally, the art is beautiful, but I did not find it particularly dynamic. Each panel, for the most part, depicts a person or people talking. There isn't much that I would consider visually striking or fluid. Yes, the artist is very good at drawing people and backgrounds, but I didn't feel it moved the story along well. Granted, it would be difficult to draw page after page of people talking and doing not much else.

A protagonist who is not all that charismatic, a mystery that isn't especially important to me, cheesy dialogue, and largely uninteresting artwork - Mind the Gap did not impress.
