    TMP returns to what it does best: characters, zany situations and the outlandish. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Roderick Ruth Jan 1, 2014

    This issue is the forefront and another strong indicator of the slow, rising-action story that writer Jonathan Hickman is known for. The Manhattan Projects has been nothing but an entertaining comic book series. So much so, that artist Nick Pitarra even injects the writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory of the comic book series Chew into a couple panels to get their heads lopped off, just as a wink to them and the audience. This is one of the plethora of reasons you can't help but enjoy this book and why it is so much fun. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Jan 2, 2014

    The latest issue of the Manhattan Projects is definitely one of the best in a while, potentially a new favorite from the series overall. Everything about this issue flowed incredibly well and the story was exciting throughout. Fans of the series will be pleased to see another top-notch effort by this amazing creative team.

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Jan 3, 2014

    Issue 17 may not be the best exemplar of this series by not offering much of anything fresh to the story Hickman and Pitarra are telling, but it's still a solid, if not exactly mind-blowing (despite the four different decapitations), installment to its endlessly consumable misadventure.

    General Westmoreland. Not a Genius. American. Machine Guns > Science. Hickman needs to tighten up the plot. The book has been meandering for a few issues now. Pitarra and Bellaire give us a beautiful book as always.
