Readers have known for a while that Matt Kindt‘s acclaimed Dark Horse Comics series “MIND MGMT” was heading to its finale in the near future, but CBR has the exclusive first details on exactly what that finale will look like — and it’s not “MIND MGMT” at all.
The series is set to conclude in August with “NEW MGMT” #1, a one-shot bringing the “MIND MGMT” saga to a close, accompanied by a standard cover by Kindt and a variant illustrated by Geof Darrow.
In a statement to CBR, Kindt described “NEW MGMT” as the culmination of the series’ three-year, oft-experimental run.
“The entire series [of] ‘MIND MGMT’ has been trying to reach out and pull the reader into its world… and the last issue is going to pay it all off — and make every reader complicit in the destruction of the story,” Kindt said. “The shifting the nature of the last issue necessitated a drastic change into what’s now become the first issue of something else all together — ‘NEW MGMT’ #1. For 35 issues I’ve been trying to create a body of work that flips the ideas of what comic books can be and how stories in general can be told. I’ve been trying to push ‘MIND MGMT’ into places we’ve never seen before — with strange advertisements, subliminal subtext, and an escalating sense of paranoia. Someone’s been putting something in the ink to make us paranoid.”
Dark Horse’s full August 2015 solicitations are expected to be released later this week.
