    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Dec 11, 2013

    Manifest Destiny is a hit. The first issue set things up nicely, but the second issue puts the pedal to the metal. Historical fiction is a hard sale, but this is one book that is getting everything right so far. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Dec 11, 2013

    Manifest Destiny hit its stride immediately in issue #1. Issue #2 expands the story further by answering a couple of questions, yet posing some more. It's clever storytelling, giving you just enough to feel satisfied, and just enough to keep you wanting to come back for more. There is a palpable sense of tension throughout, with the large panels working like explosions of action in a Hollywood movie to keep the excitement moving at a consistently fast pace. It's a lot of fun as well, and the last panel has that more questions than answers balance just about right, making me eagerly await next month's issue. Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Peter Schmeiser Dec 25, 2013

    The art on this book has captivated me as much as the story. Matthew Roberts brings these fantastic elements alive with great wide shots of the landscape, and high-definition detail tight shots that bring the elements to life. This comic is brought to life by full and detailed character designs and lush backgrounds that contribute to the fantastic frontier we continue to forge though. Its only issue two, so if you have not yet done so, pick this up and put it on your pull list. Manifest Destiny wasnt just a good #1 issue, it is a pull list keeper. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Dec 11, 2013

    Manifest Destiny #2 was a great issue that gives me a lot of hope for the future of the comic. It was almost as good as the first issue in keeping the emotion and tension, the strong writing, and the fantastic artwork. It's only true fault lies with a lack of likeable characters, but if the comic was correct that, I could see this becoming one of the best series that Image has to offer. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Dec 12, 2013

    “Manifest Destiny” is yet another example of some up-and-coming comic book talent with previously low exposure coming together to create something that feels beyond their years. With a concept and execution that stands up against any of the dozens of dynamic creator-owned works already running today, Image Comics' has another winner on their hands. “Manifest Destiny” is the “next big thing” from a publisher that is constantly releasing the “next big thing.” Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ricardo Guajardo Dec 11, 2013

    If you need more anymore convincing, it's possible this title isn't for you as I already given it enough praise. The creators have already validated themselves to being on the the Skybound imprint, which not many Image books can be in as it's originality can intrigue the most skeptic readers. Folks, look for it in the back issues, in my opinion it's going to be a hot comic in the next year. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Dec 11, 2013

    Manifest Destiny #2 is very similar to issue one as you will have an enjoyable time reading it. It is bold, adventurous, exciting, (and dangerous) with beautiful use of artwork and writing collaborating to form a read of good fun, great adventure, and dark mystery. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Lenny Wojt Dec 13, 2013

    Manifest Destiny #2 really brings the adventure aspect of the book to the forefront with its monsters and mystery. This is a solid issue that builds on the grounds of the first issue and hooks you into reading issue three. Read Full Review
