Meru and Bill’s journey leads them to a “talking” dolphin and perhaps the very man they’ve been searching for all this time –– Henry Lyme!

Meru and CIA Agent Bill Falls take to the streets of China after a tip from a writer in Zanzibar tells them to “talk to the dolphins.” Strangely enough, this leads to further clues, which brings the two another step closer to the man they’re after. But the immortals are hot on their trail and cause Meru and Bill to separate and fend for themselves. Shortly after, Meru finds herself in the company of someone else –– a man who may keep her out of harm’s way, or perhaps prove as deadly as those hunting her down.

Fast-paced, international in scope, and psychedelic at times (especially in this issue), Mind MGMT keeps two steps ahead and strings us along through the expert storytelling of Matt Kindt. It’s been a thrilling ride so far, following Meru into this metaphorical heart of darkness, all the time wondering "Who is Henry Lyme?" amid the twists and plot turns of a story rife with intrigue and excitement. I particularly enjoyed one particular scene in which a Chinese elder envisions Meru as a warrior princess who will ultimately be killed, but will be reborn into something more powerful and who will “never forget the secret of how to kill the beast.” Very Joseph Campbell, further testament to Kindt’s finesse as a storyteller, and I for one cannot wait to continue this hero’s journey in the next issue, and the next after that.

Mind MGMT #3 comes complete with another installment of Kindt’s black & white series of vignettes, “The Second Floor,” as well as an all-new case file introducing “The Ad Man” into the world of Mind MGMT.
