    One thought on “reMIND: Volume 1”

    1. I wouldn't have believed that reMIND is Jason Brubaker’s first published work, but having read his afterword on the first volume of the aforementioned graphic novel, it is simply that. The road to its eventual publication though is a story in itself. The remind concept started as an animation project that metamorphosed into a graphic novel from its storyboards. Brubaker did most the work during free time while taking on an animation career and this went on for a few years until he was able to [...]

    2. Great tale, great art. Really makes its own world, and art-wise, the clash of the cartoonish cat and the realism everywhere else really does it. Absolutely great!

    3. Introduction OneReligion in literature is hard to do well. One of the greatest struggles for a literary work concerned with faith in the unseen is negotiating that breach between Why Should I Care and Hey You're Preaching At Me. The borderlands that lie between the two are filled with deep and often satisfying conversations—or at least ones that help readers to recognize the breadth of perspectives that naturally hover across the human landscape. And then consider even those works that don't p [...]

    4. Not entirely sure what to make of this, beginning to see this as a pattern in graphic novels. Intriguing start. Beautiful art work (imo). Not sure what to make of the last pages. Will probably have more of an opinion after reading the next.

    5. "reMIND is a mystical, sci-fi about faith, love and brain transplantation." [Source]I'm not huge into comic books, nor would I ever even dream of calling myself a graphic novel aficionado. But "holy kelp"! reMIND really stuck with me even hours after reading the first volume. There are so many positives that this book touts, for instance: 1. The characters are incredibly relatable and engaging. Sonja? She maintains the lighthouse in the sleepy seaside town of Cripple Peaks after the death of her [...]

    6. Wow. Very cool story and art, definitely worth the time to read it, if you can find a copy. I just read a library copy and it's numbered 1545 of 2500, so it is a fairly limited printing. The story is unique, the art is slightly reminiscent of Moebius, all in all, a great combination.

    7. Kids had this graphic novel sitting out. Great story. Creative premise. The person you think is the protagonist turns out a bit player. At least in volume one.

    8. When I started reading this book I had no idea what it was about. There was no summary on GR so I just started reading because that seemed like the simplest way to find out.To summarize:Sonja works as a lighthouse keeper with her cat Victuals. If she had a choice she would leave her town, but she is paid well for keeping the lighthouse in good shape. Her deceased father once reported spotting a lizard man which turned Sonja's little town into a tourist hot spot. While hunting mice, Victual sudde [...]

    9. Jason Brubaker's comic reMIND is, in one word, refreshing. The art has a distinctive look that moves the story along with great detail but unambiguously, and given Brubaker's other professional work largely involves design and storyboards it isn't surprising that at times it feels a bit like you're watching something animated -- though the intricate artwork and painted look of the colors outshines most animation by far. The story moves at a fast pace making it easy to fall into, though regrettab [...]

    10. Crippled Peaks is a sleepy harbor town. The composition of landforms is quirky and feels like a small, magical place just over the hill and out of reach. It is relatable but just slightly off; you sense an element of the fantastic just beneath the surface. As we pan back through the village it is teeming with character and history. We are introduced to Sonja as she maintains the lighthouse. Everything about Sonja reads as strong, intelligent and capable. She is our touchstone. When she accepts t [...]

    11. Cripple Peaks has one claimed to fame. Sonia's dad maybe saw a lizard man in 1984. Sonia would be so out of her little town now that her father's died except that she's really well paid to maintain the lighthouse. One day, Sonia's cat Victuals goes missing. When he reappears days later, he's changed. He has stitches in his headd he can talk. The story he tells Sonia has her rethinking all the stories her father ever told her.So. This was pretty weird, but I think it has the potential to be reall [...]

    12. reMIND has been released in webcomic form and is still available (for free) online.Sonja is a sceptic living in a tourist trap for supernatural enthusiasts built on her late father's insistence that he'd seen a lizard-man come from the local bubbling lake. When her cat Victuals goes missing she's the only one looking for a reasonable explanation. But when he reappears with the ability to speak reality starts to tiltMIND is quite interesting and I'm glad I didn't know much more than the above goi [...]

    13. Instead of only reviewing this volume I'm going to review both volumes of the reMIND series.I love Jason Brubaker's reMind series because it has a clear cut theme to it. I feel like the vast majority of books that are published today are just stories, but Burbaker does a fantastic job of encompassing both story and theme. The artwork was amazing, in that it is Brubaker's own unique personal style. I thought the paneling was good, although there were a couple moments which I didn't know which pan [...]

    14. See my full review here. This book was definitely very interesting and refreshing. It's about a girl named Sonja who loses her cat, Victuals. When her cat comes back, it's different - it's talking,standing up, and has an awful scar on its head with stitches. ReMIND goes on a mission to tell us what happened to this cat while it was gone and what's going to happen as a result. I have to say that I didn't really know what to expect when I read the synopsis. I was utterly confused even. When I read [...]

    15. First of all, you can read this book for free online:remindblog/custom/remiThis has to be one of the quirkier books I've read lately. It's about an underwater kingdom ruled by a king whose aim is immortality. In secret, he captures those who would oppose him, as well as his healthy & hale son-in-law, and transfers their brains into the bodies of air-breathing animals. Said son-in-law escapes, only to find that his body is now that of a young inventor's cat who had previously gone missing. Pl [...]

    16. I originally started reading reMIND as a webcomic and as the story went on, I gladly became one of its Kickstarter backers. There isn't anything I don't enjoy about reMIND. It is a page-turner both story-wise and art-wise. The story has a natural flow that keeps you wanting to know more, it never stalls, it just flows smoothly. The art has the priceless advantage of limitless artistic liberty, with spreads instead of single pages, wide pages full of painted textures and wide open negative spaces [...]

    17. Man I feel like I'm cheating towards my reading goal by reading graphic novels. I just fly through them! I really love being able to SEE the scenery and everything going on right now rather than having to visualize it all myself. Sometimes even when reading I find myself JUST reading the dialogue on accident simply because the details are just overwhelming sometimes. It makes me want to give this artist and author major boost when I see how few of people have read his comics and how few of follo [...]

    18. All Sonia wanted was to find her missing cat, Victuals. But when he washes up on the shore of her sleepy coastal town several days later with a head full of stitches and the startling ability to speak - and no memory of how he got that way - her quiet life is forever changed. Together they set out to solve the mystery of his disappearance, embarking on a journey that leads to a strange kingdom under the waves and into the heart of a royal power struggle, where the answer to Victuals' true identi [...]

    19. One of this years Great Graphic Novels for Teens pics and honestly it was kind of amazing. Sonia lives in a small town keeping the lighthouse running and working on her crazy inventions. One day her cat Victual's goes missing. When he turns up a week later, he can talk but doesn't remember any of their previous life. Then Victual's tells her his story, the lizard man her father always thought he saw is real and talking Victual's has one of the lizards men's brains transplanted in. I love the sto [...]

    20. This is a beautifully rendered graphic novel that evolves along fantastical paths not unlike a Miyazaki anime. It starts with handy Sonya manning and fixing the lighthouse in what seems to be the sleepy coastal New England town of Cripple Peaks with a questionable claim to fame and tourism as the long-ago location of a lizard-man sighting. An adventure begins after Sonya's cat, Victuals, reappears after a week's absence amid a slate of pet disappearances. Victuals is not the same as he was previ [...]

    21. The story, characters, and themes aren't earth-shattering, but they're solid and fun. What I really loved about reMIND was the gorgeous artwork and coloring, which Jason Brubaker did all himself. Brubaker succeeded in creating that something special that he and other comic fans search for at conventions, something fresh and gorgeous that you just have to take home with you. It was also interesting and heartening to hear about Brubaker's long road of hard work, creativity, collaboration, and appr [...]

    22. This book has beautiful art, but the story takes a lot of unexpected, and not-always-sensible, turns. There's probably some deeper meaning here about belief in a higher power and the use of religion to control people, but the whole underwater-lizard-prince-turned-walking-talking-house-cat thing is a little hard to swallow, especially given the fact that the first chapter is primarily about a girl who lives in a lighthouse. Nevertheless, the art is wonderful, and I enjoyed the book for that reaso [...]

    23. So good! the colour, the way cells are used, the story, the roundness of each and every character. Just lovely! My only complaint is that, if you only have volume one, you will go mad. Pick up both at the same time. Also, not to be beat an issue into the ground, but having read this more or less at the same time as the "princeless" series- I really, really like that there is a female engineer character- and that it is NEVER mentioned that she is female. Her gender simply doesn't matter. Doesn't [...]

    24. Weird, but pretty cool. I liked the artwork, and it's certainly an original story. A young woman's cat is lost, and then suddenly turns up one day with a head woundd he can talk and walk and he is really intelligent. Come to find out his mind was transplanted from his true body (a lizard) from a lizard kingdom below the water's surface (ocean?). Anyway, the girl gives "Victuals" a chance to go back below water to try and reclaim his own body. I liked it enough to check out the next volume

    25. The drawings were cool, int his book about a lizard man transformed into a cat and sent into the human world. The story-line, though a bit far-fetched carried through and when teamed with the art, became quite entertaining.The story is an oft told one of revenge and seeking for justice. There are good guys and bad guys and of course a techno-wizard who can build cool stuff. Sound familiar?I picked this book up because I saw it recommended on a book site I frequent.I finished it because I don't l [...]

    26. This wowed me - the most unique and interesting book I've read in a while, in all areas: plot, text, characterization, and art. I couldn't put it down. Great perspective, images draw me right into the story. The story's not even my kind of thing! But I loved it, and I look forward to Vol. 2. Also, I really appreciated the afterword. I've never considered putting a story online before finishing it to my liking, and Jason's write-up helped me understand 1) how long everything might take, even for [...]

    27. This was my first foray into graphic novels. I did it for a reading challenge and was quite skeptical about it. I must say, though, I did enjoy both Remind: Volume 1 and Remind: Volume 2. The artwork is very good and both creatively laid out on the page and an effective part of the story. The story itself was interesting, entertaining, and emotional as well. I'm not saying I'm a new fan of the genre as a whole, but this was definitely a good entry into it.

    28. Tough to judge the first of a multi-part story, but I'm eager to read volume 2. Brubaker's got a lovely visual style and has created a beautifully mad world to tell his story in. It's got lizard-men, talking cats, robot-suits lizard-men whose brains have been transplanted into cats wearing robot-suits. And we're introduced to the craziness in a cool, X-Filesy way through a skeptical woman whose deceased father made their village infamous by claiming to see something weird.
