    Also, it has to be said, Matthew Roberts artwork is phenomenal! And thats still probably not giving him enough credit. Not only are the environments believable, being that they are a representation of our country in its infancy, but the characters are highly detailed as well. The level of detail that is in every panel is astounding and very well done. To know that Roberts handles the inking duties as well just adds to the creative talent behind this artist. I hope that he is on the book for the long haul and look forward to seeing where his career will take him. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Jun 11, 2014

    Manifest Destiny adjusts course and heads out into another new and unexplored piece of territory. The land was deadly, but the river may be worse. We'll have to keep reading to find out, but I don't think anyone is jumping overboard yet. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jun 11, 2014

    Manifest Destiny #7 is a great return for the series, making improvements in areas that needed them. Story-wise, not much really happened and it wasn't the most exciting start to a new story arc, but the writing and artwork remain very strong and can make up for that. Definitely worth your reading time and I can't wait to see where this journey takes us and the characters next. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Jun 13, 2014

    Manifest Destiny continues this alternate " and far more interesting " take on the adventures of Lewis & Clark.  I know that I would have paid more attention to this part of history if the pair fought monsters as they explored the uncharted continent. It takes the subject seriously, never playing the situation for gags.  This is presented as close to reality as possible and pulls you in and doesn't let go.  You become invested in their journey as you need to find out how they possibly get through this alive.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 12, 2014

    Secrets are confirmed and deeper secrets are alluded to in the pages of "Manifest Destiny" #7, making it quite apparent that these first seven issues are barely scratching the surface of what Lewis and Clark find on their journey -- which is still in the early stages. Dingess and Roberts continue to craft a story that blends adventure, horror, history and the discovery of new lands into a series that's a great example of a new and different comic.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jun 10, 2014

    Manifest Destiny‘s second arc gets off to a decent start but it's nowhere near as good as the start of the first. There may be dramatic interaction with a gripping cliffhanger but all in all the pace was a little to slow. It is however good enough to squeeze by with a light recommendation. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jun 12, 2014

    Overall this is a better jumping on point than a new issue of Manifest Destiny, dramatically speaking the directions Clark and Lewis are going is interesting but it's less engaging, they're less likable characters as they become more unhinged. Additionally the overall decrease in monster action and atmosphere don't help things much, if you've heard good things and want to jump on the Manifest Destiny band wagon this is a good place to jump on but you'd probably be fine waiting for issue 8 too.

    All-Comic - Todd Frazier Jun 10, 2014

    Manifest Destiny begins its sophomore story arc ina new setting. New character developments and a brief cast summary to introduce new readers to the motley crew make this a good jumping on point.Dingess and Roberts hint that not everything is as random as it appeared in the first story arc and the suspense that this title is known for kicks in toward the end of the issue and pays off with a nice splash page cliffhanger. This is the type of storytelling that makes readers come back month after month. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jun 11, 2014

    I was very pleased to see a return to the basics starting this issue, but I am still a little bit pissed off from the issue six debacle. Still, it was nice to ease up a bit here and return to the many things that I really liked about the first story arc. I am still guarded though, and will be until I see how Dingess manages conflict in the new arc. It is my sincere hope that he knocks it out and dazzles me. But, I will not know until I see it. This issue did help a lot in getting that bad taste out of my mouth from the last one however. Read Full Review
