    With the wide range of characters you would think it would be difficult to build each one their own personalities and roles but I find that each one gets more and more deveiled the more this series goes on. Yes, you have your non-essential characters, but there are enough in the main cast that it amazes me how well each ones own story is progressing. You get to see the different views of each one as events take place, and experience their reasons for continuing (or questioning whether they should). Dingess has truly created something special with this twisted ‘New World' story, and I'm definitely going to continue reading the adventures of this particular Lewis and Clark. Read Full Review

    Manifest Destiny has just enough clever, just enough adventure, and just enough terror for any comic book reader to enjoy. We devour with our eyes the fantasy of the story, and hold our breath in captivation when it horrifies us. I can't wait to see where we go from here. Read Full Review

    Manifest Destiny takes a step in the right direction, returning to the intense, and suspenseful ride I enjoyed. Highly Recommended. Read Full Review

    Manifest Destiny #9 is a good, very enjoyable issue of the series. While the pacing and the story slows down a bit, the writing still pulls us through and keeps us engaged in this creepy historical fiction tale. There's not much else to say other than check it out! Read Full Review

    A transitional issue, but still very good - and the art is outstanding. Read Full Review

    MANIFEST DESTINY #9 is a bit slow, but it's still a great read. The group is stuck and there's not too much for the to do, which results in an issue not as enjoyable as its predecessors. However, overall, the story of Lewis and Clark discovering new, over-sized monsters is still one of my favorite reads each month and it's nice to see there's threats all over this new world, not just o the river for this arc. I highly recommend checking out MANIFEST DESTINY. It's unique, weird, and engaging. It will quickly become one of your favorite month-to-month reads. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Aug 20, 2014

    All of the elements are there for this title to pop. The premise is good, the art is amazing, and the characterization is spot on. The only thing missing is the direction. The party just seems to be aimlessly falling into malady after malady. There seems to be some higher purpose at play as the recurring arches keep popping up, but right now there is no real clarity. I am hoping to see some of the clarity to begin to make itself known if this comic is to become a really good one. Read Full Review
