NEW COMIC DAY TOMORROW, OUR PICKS: MANHATTAN PROJECTS VOL.1 SCIENCE BAD TRADE PAPERBACK — The first five issue arc of Jonathan Hickman’s incredible new IMAGE ongoing series, THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS, arrives tomorrow in trade paperback, and: we are STOKED.
This series is fantastic, from the amazing artwork of Nick Pitarra to the layered, compelling storytelling of Hickman. This book does for historical figures of science and warfare what Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen did for characters of literature.
Picture this: the atom bomb? It’s the safest thing that we’re allowed to know about from the men who’re involved with the Manhattan Projects. From there, Hickman uses historical fact to weave an incredible fiction about a shadowy government project that’s building doorways to other dimensions, weapons of spiritual destruction, and so much more.
