    I am ecstatic that this issue has brought this, one of my favorite modern series, back from the brink with which it flirted last time. In short, The Manhattan Projects is back to form with a wet chomp, and I can't wait to see how issue 15's exit wound bleeds out onto the jowls of the main narrative next time. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Oct 9, 2013

    This series continues to hold its own entirely unique position in the Image lineup, bringing rich and unpredictable new stories month after month. The interior of Oppenheimer's brain is a storytelling goldmine, and even these issues that take small breaks from the primary narrative are thoroughly fascinating. The book's visual consistency, throughout the primary arc and carrying into these fill-in issues, is a high point, especially because it's artistically unlike anything else on the shelves. MANHATTAN PROJECTS remains a must-pull series. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Oct 9, 2013

    I often find myself wondering how longMPwill go as a series. Sometimes I sense it building to a head and think it could end within a few months. Other times I feel like Hickman is still laying groundwork and that the series will go for fifty more issues. I guess that's just how good Hickman is at hiding his plot. Read Full Review

    A pretty strong issue of TMP. Joseph Oppenheimer is a very sick dude. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Oct 9, 2013

    Issue #15 of the Manhattan Projects is a terrific addition to this already incredible series. A return to the Oppenheimer conflict has been greatly anticipated following the initial installment, and this latest issue surpassed its predecessor. The world-building was amazing, particularly given how little readers have actually been treated to this aspect of the story. There is practically a whole mythology inside of this one characters head and it provides an excellent change of pace for this already consistently interesting title. Full of suspense, intrigue, and action, issue #15 was an epic chapter in the saga of one of the wackiest books you could be reading. Read Full Review

    Get ready to take a ride in the troubled brain of Oppenheimer! The bizarrely wonderful world is certainly quite a discovery, and scribe Jonathan Hickman and artist Ryan Browne depict us that journey with brio. The entire issue is focused on the deranged scientist's head, as the constructs of the twin brothers Robert and Joseph wage war to take control over the protagonist in this number. Browne's clear and neat art render this world nevertheless eerie and Jordie Bellaire's vivid red and blue colors bestow this book its perfect tone. Though in page number 5 panel 4, two supposed red characters are colored blue, but it's just a detail. The cover is stunning as usual. The red and blue bubbles give us an overview of the work that we are going to see inside. The focal point of this issue remains the conflict inside the mind of the dark personality of Oppenheimer. Robert's realization in the end is a revelation, and I'm interested to find out how this will ultimately serve THE Oppenheimer of the physical existence.
