I’m really digging this book. It’s just the right amount of mystery and paranormal for what I can really get into. Plus, there’s some great female friendship happening. (Of course, now that one of them is a comma, it’s a little harder to develop that more.)

Elle Petersen’s interesting, but Jo and her spirit to figure out the truth is more my kind of character. I’m looking forward to seeing her solve her friend’s kidnapping. Dane is probably a less interesting character, and I hope that as the tale progresses McCann will flesh him out in an interesting way. Doctor Gina Geller also seems intriguing. I’m always fond of this kind of “who done it” tale, especially when there’s a conspiracy abound.

I’m not sure how I feel about the use of music. Though Elle in the bumblebee girl outfit was pretty cute.

Blake Robert “Bobby” Plangman also sets an interesting paranormal issue. Is everything going on in Elle’s head or is it real? She seems to have fallen into someone else’s body.

My favorite detail is the fake deer. That was pretty awesome.

Gina really continues to be my favorite. I love that she’s found something she needs to find out, and her wife Annie Wallace is super awesome too. “Cagney and Gaycey” +1 for hilarity right there, McCann.

Super fascinating that Harold Crenshaw is now in a comma. And that he’s in the same world as Elle and has something to tell her. McCann sure knows how to make a cliffhanger for you to want to read the next issue right now.

Poor Esteban Morales and his wife. How very, very sad.

Hrmm…I’m not sure how much I trust Dane. Of course, Esquejo and Oback could be purposely drawing him and our villain in similar hoodies.

Interesting comments from Min comparing Edward Sr to King Lear. Like it.

I’m really enjoying how smart this book is, and how interested the readers seem from the letters in the back.

This issue felt a bit less filled out and moving the plot forward than the last two. Almost as if it should’ve been put together with the next issue.

Gina and Annie continue to be awesome.

Elle’s actually the character I’m having the hardest time with this issue. I’m not caring much for her bringing in Harold to figure out her mind and Bobby her guide. I want to see our heroine do the heavy lifting on her own.

Doesn’t surprise me that Edward’s having an affair with his assistant; though I was interested to see more about his work. He’s definitely doing something hinky.

I am curious more about the bandaged boy in the green hoodie and who he is.

Meet Elle and company yourself, buy Mind the Gap Volume 1: Intimate Strangers TP.
