    AIPT - Jordan Richards Feb 17, 2015

    Manifest Destiny #13 is an enjoyable return for the series after being away for a month. It continues the plot along well, building up some new plot points and continuing on with developing the characters. It wasn't the most eventful issue we've seen from the series nor was it the most exciting, but it did provide a good experience from beginning to end. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Feb 17, 2015

    What this ends up as is a strange combination of a good jumping on point, though not really a highlight of the series thus far. It is still an amazing concept, and expertly realized through a combination of different story telling techniques (such as switching between the narrative of the journals to the regular action.) The issue at least does what it needs to, as although it introduces neither what seems to be a particularly dangerous creature, nor advances much of the plot in any other way, it still grips the reader in one of the most unconventional and innovative successes of a series in the past few years.

    The Latest Pull - Thomas Harbaugh Feb 15, 2015

    There's still potential, given the way writer Chris Dingess has teased about Lewis' womanizing and Clark's haunted dreams of death and mayhem, but for now teases are all we've gotten. It would be nice to see more development soon, given the colorful cast Dingess has to play with, and the gorgeous art he can always count on. Read Full Review

    What this issue of MANIFEST DESTINY does well is set up the next arc after quite the tremendous issue the month prior. It may be a decent place for new readers to jump on, but folks reading since the opening act might find this issue a tad lackluster. It almost feels like this issue is following a repeating formula. Regardless of that, the character development is the focus and it's done extremely well. On top of that, the coloring and art are beautiful, and MANIFEST DESTINY continues to be one of my favorite on-going series. I highly suggest buying the first two trades of this series and jumping on while you can! Read Full Review

    There is a lot to look forward to inManifest Destiny. This book holds a lot of promise for the many story paths that could emerge from the great first two arcs. Given that we still know so little about the arches, the natives, and how Lewis and Clark intend to complete this mission they've been tasked with, you have got to be excited to see where this series goes!

    But alas, I have been down that road with this title, only to be disappointed later on. I am cautiously optimistic however that things may be headed in the right direction as I see strong writing elements in Dingess that are matching Roberts' continually exceptional art. The potential is there and I so want this one to be good. Let's hope that this will be the case. Let's go guys, dazzle me, please. You do have my attention again. This could be the start of something real good. Read Full Review
