Two years ago, every single person on Flight 815 suffered instantaneous, total amnesia—pilots, flight attendants, everyone. Except for a small boy—and a man who disappeared completely. Authorities still don’t understand what happened on the “amnesia flight,” but investigative reporter Meru is trying to track down that mystery passenger and tell the real story. But someone’s looking for her, too—Mind MGMT, a secretive espionage agency that may just be all in her head.
Lost fans will recognize that flight number, of course, and Matt Kindt’s ongoing series Mind MGMT shares a lot in common with that series—slowly unraveling mysteries, enticing readers further and further in. Will Kindt be able to pull his ambitious story off? Well, that’s part of the fun of reading an ongoing series—even he doesn’t know yet. But even aside from its intriguing, mysterious plot, Mind MGMT has a lot going for it: specifically, Kindt’s clever and instantly evocative watercolor-and-pen art.
We’re excited to have Matt Kindt illustrating the July issue of the Slate Book Review.
