Manhattan Projects by Jonathan Hickman & Nick Pitarra

Those are my three favorites and the good thing is that they're all fairly recent so if you like the series you can always hunt down back issues fairly easily.


I recommend The Manhattan Projects.

I chose to pick up the first volume of Manhattan Projects instead of The Massive today. I'm hoping that it was a wise decision but I won't find out until I get home tonight...stupid work! :smt013

Buffy Season 9 v.2 – Spike was in it a lot so I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the Spike trade. And the return of Buffy-bot.

What’s up with Xander, Buffy’s gonna break his ass when he completely loses his temper.

Was worried a little that they’d made Andrew turn bad.

Unless you hate science, you'll like it.

I don't know what the Massive is but if it's Brian Wood it has a high chance of sucking.

Wouldn't all sorcery be the devil's sorcery?

My mom is watching Christian TV right now. :oops:

Can we just settle on math being devil's ultimate sorcery? :smt102

My mom is watching Christian TV right now. :oops:


:shock: I honestly don't know how my brain made the correlation but this, added to the fact that you are Canadian, instantly made me think of the third part of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by the Crash Test Dummies.

I'm sure Brian Wood has a lot of great titles, unfortunately, Massive isn't one of them.

Great review!

The Manhattan Projects Vol. 1 - Having read Arion's review, I definitely agree that this book is easily Hickman's most ambitious series to date. Honestly, I sat down to read the first issue of this collection before going to bed last night and before I knew it, I had read the entire book. From cover to cover there is definitely enough intrigue and suspense to keep you totally enthralled in the world Hickman has created. At first glance, I thought that I wouldn't like Nick Pitarra's art when paired with this type of story. However, the further I got into the story to more I found myself comparing it to Frank Quitely's art. I definitely think I will be adding this to my pull list and I highly recommend this book.

Hmmm...I was going to try and hunt down the single issues but now I think I will just wait to buy the second volume while picking up the current issues as they are released.
