    Big Comic Page - Shane Hoffman Jul 15, 2014

    Adventure? Check. Danger? Double check. Excitement? Thrills? Chills? Check, check, check. Simply put, this interesting take on the Adventures of Lewis and Clark has it all! If you aren't reading this book you are doing these fine creators " and yourself " a disservice. Chris Dingess and Matthew Roberts, along with the rest of their creative team, have done a fantastic job of taking a part of history and rewriting to make it fit nicely in the world of comics. If you like action and adventure without the 'traditional' heroes, then look no further. Oh, and one more thing, if you like a cliffhanger at the end of every single issue then you will definitely love this book. Manifest Destiny takes great pleasure in leaving you salivating at the mouth and ready for the next issue as soon as you finish reading the last page. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jul 16, 2014

    What I find myself loving about this issue of MANIFEST DESTINY and the series as a whole is that it's a great, yet bizarre, re-imagining of American history and a really intriguing series. It's hard to put down, even though the issue feels like it moves a bit slower than most other series. This is a top pick book though and it's great to see Roberts and Gieni redesign creatures we all know to be these horrific, monstrous beings capable of killing people any time they want. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jul 16, 2014

    Manifest Destiny #8 is another fantastic issue for the series, making it one of Image's most underrated books they are publishing. The story is really heating up now as the big conflict for the arc rears its ugly, but amazingly drawn head. The writing is strong and artwork is gorgeous overall. Still highly recommended and worth your time checking out. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli Jul 22, 2014

    The work of Chris Dingess, Matthew Roberts and Owen Gieni is one of those rare examples of composed parts working in perfect harmony to create something greater than themselves. It's what happens when all of the cylinders are firing in perfect sync. It's the ring of accuracy to the historical fiction writing, the way the impressive art and some of the best coloring happening in the industry right now creates stark contrast between the metals and bold colors of the soldiers in relief against the greens and browns of the natural world, the hook of the high concept hook, the invention of the zipline(!), and how one big fucking mosquito create one of the best series of 2014.

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jul 19, 2014

    This time though, things are set up for an epic go. I am hoping… no, I am praying that when things do get resolved in upcoming issues that we actually get a solid outcome and not a weak dismissal of some serious baddies. Bring it man and get it done. I know you got it in you. This issue is proof of that. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jul 15, 2014

    Manifest Destiny continues to be an enthralling read as though last issue's cliffhanger didn't pay off in the way I'd hoped the developments in this issue definitely intrigued me. Recommended. Read Full Review

    A great series, but this it reads SO much better in trades. Single issues are so fast-paced, you're done in a few minutes.
