I have been patiently, not really, waiting for a Mind the Gap issue to keep me falling in love with it and now I have come upon it. First off the art is ballin’. Sami Basri gives us some very cool art when Elle’s body is being ripped like plastic wrap in The Garden, a place where coma patients rommmm. Yeah, that was meant to grab your attention into reading this comic. I find the mystery in this comic soothing. I can’t help but wonder what will happen next and wondering why Elle has these powers is intriguing. We still have no idea why Elle is being target or seriously the main point of this damn comic. You don’t really need to though because the rest is solid. The mystery gets you hooked into the characters and what is at stake. Okay yeah so we open up with Elle being torn apart by all the comatose patients wanting a chance for Elle to enter their living body to say good bye to loved ones. From this attack she disappears. Bobby has no idea where Elle went but Dr. Crenshaw thinks she needs to put herself back together mentally before she can physically form again. Since Elle is in pieces all her powers go to every single comatose patient in the hospital. Needless to say the place turns into a zoo. It is quite chaotic and Dr. Geller only becomes more suspicious that Elle is actually taking over these patients. I know the comic tells me not to trust anyone but Dr. Geller seems so real. She may be the only one I do trust and that makes me nervous that she is bad.
Jo and Dane are still confused as to what Elle’s brother, Junior, revealed to them. All they know is that they need to find answers to and if helping Junior is the key they will.
We don’t get much more information on the whole Jairus thing, but it is clear that Junior is working both sides in order to find out. Like I said, I still have no idea what this comic is about. It is a ride that I am willing to guess at every turn. Mind the Gap is a fun comic and it is one of those comics I read right away and then flip back through to see if I missed anything.
