MIND MGMT: The Psychic Espionage “Game” is doing very well in its first week since launching on Kickstarter. It is billed as a tense, paranoia-fueled game of deduction and second-guessing. It’s based on the NY Times Best Selling series from Matt Kindt, and it’s published by Dark Horse Comics. This board game is being published by Vancouver, BC based operation Off the Page Games.

After the product has been sent out to Kickstarter backers, it’s very likely to appear in select games stores near you.

The story is about Meru who has to deal with other strangeness in the likes of X-Files. Instead of aliens and ghosts, she’s dealing with spies, rogue agents and psy-ops. In what she finds, the trouble she gets in requires the help of others.

The debut issue of the hit comic book series BANG! by writer Matt Kindt (MIND MGMT), artist Wilfredo Torres (JUPITER’S CIRCLE), colorist Nayoung Kim and letterer Nate Piekos is going back to press for a third printing, featuring an all new cover by acclaimed artist David Rubín (ETHER).

The first printing of BANG! issue 1 sold out ahead of publication, following widespread press attention and endorsements from Keanu Reeves and some of the comic book industry’s most respected writers and artists. Following the sell out of the second printing, a third printing of BANG! will go on sale from Dark Horse Comics on April 1, 2020.

“We’ve been blown away by the response to BANG!” said co-creator and artist Wilfredo Torres. “David Rubín is one of the most dynamic comic book artists working today and it’s awesome to see his take on Secret Agent Thomas Cord.”

In addition to the third printing, Dark Horse has announced a BANG! convention exclusive cover that will debut at Emerald City Comic Con 2020, March 12-15 in Seattle, WA. The BANG! convention exclusive cover will have a limited run of 500 copies. This may be found at the official ECCC booth instead of the Dark Horse booth in light of news that this company (and a few others) decided not to attend due to keeping staff safe from the fear of the coronavirus potentially spreading during this event.
