MO – MIND MGMT Signing

mgmt

Artist and writer Matt Kindt (Pistolwhip, Super Spy, 3 Story, Revolver, Frankenstein: Agent of Shade) will be at Star Clipper from noon to 2 pm on Wednesday, April 3 to sign copies of his MIND MGMT trade paperback!

RSVP on Facebook!

From ifanboy: “20th Century Fox has secured the film rights to Mind MGMT, the ESPionage romp from cartoonist Matt Kindt and Dark Horse. While the adaptation is not yet linked to a writer or director, Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Prometheus) will produce the feature under his Scott Free logo along with Dark Horse’s own Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg.

Mind MGMT tells the story of Henry Lime and Meru, a spy and true crime writer respectively, caught up in the absurd, mysterious, often horrific world of government sanctioned psionic warfare and alphabet soup intrigue. The comic itself is ongoing, but there’s already plenty of fodder for great cinema, including planes full (and then not) of missing memories, creepy dolphins and no shortage of conspiracy. It could well be Men Who Stare at Goats, but great.

We’re keeping our eyes on this one.”
