    In all seriousness, The Manhattan Projects continues to be the best thing in comics right now, and more than deserves the industry and comicdom's accolades, not to mention your undivided attention. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno Apr 23, 2013

    It brings a tear to my eye to see these bonds of friendship grow. HOWEVER, this is Jonathan "Big Papa" Hickman we are dealing with. Is Fermi just setting up Dags (I'm calling him Dags from now on.) to use him? God, you are a sick man Jonathan. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Apr 24, 2013

    The Manhattan Projectshas always been full of dark humor, but issue eleven has likable characters, cheerful jokes, and heart-warming moments surpassing all its predecessors. Now I'm really scared what Jonathan Hickman will do next. Read Full Review

    While we've seen Hickman's planning skills for years, in books ranging from Fantastic Four to Avengers, I feel like sometimes people think that's all he has to offer. Manhattan Projects #11 says otherwise. It says that Hickman, especially with an artist as expressive as Pitarra, has more than just formulae and plot points in his arsenal " he also has a command of emotion and sentimentality that gives warmth to his work. It's not rocket science " it's human drama, even in the most technical of environments. It shows that that Manhattan Projects still has a lot to teach us. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - joedwardlewis Apr 25, 2013

    Hickman's mainstream efforts (e.g. Fantastic Four) have shown him capable of the most intricate of planning and subsequent execution. This is also evidenced in The Manhattan Projects, however, in this issue the poetic and poignant pause, as plot is advanced, has earned the issue our 'Comic of the Week' award. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - johnlees Apr 26, 2013

    I've gotten used to saying "It's Jonathan Hickman's best work since The Nightly News," but the longer the series maintains this level of quality, the less certain I become about even that caveat at the end. In a storied career that has seen Hickman do some acclaimed work on some iconic franchises, comics history may yet remember his work on The Manhattan Projects most fondly of all. And in Nick Pitarra, he has the perfect collaborator. Pitarra is doing star-making work here, and has quickly been elevated to one of my favourite artists. The Manhattan Projects #11 suggests that there's enough steam in this narrative to sustain this comic for a long time yet. Let's hope that is indeed the case. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Justin Barnes May 7, 2013

    There is nothing out there on the shelf that is like Manhattan Projects today and is no surprise why it has been nominated for an Eisner award for best continuing series. The key to this series for the past year has been its consistency of the quality of storytelling with such a diverse cast of characters. When the Manhattan Projects is all over I think it will be considered one of Hickman's best pieces of work. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - BradBabendir Apr 28, 2013

    This title, for me, is the realization of Hickman’s ability. I can’t get into Avengers or New Avengers, and I liked his run on Ultimate Comics Ultimates, but this shows what he can do. It’s a high-concept, really-scientific-science-fiction, and it’s one of the smartest titles on shelves right now. Read Full Review
