“SINGULARITY” A secret alien science experiment spins out of control, sucking Yuri and Laika up into a singularity of chaos the likes of which no human, or human-dog-person-thing, has ever seen.

    While it's going to take awhile to get this rolling, The Sun Beyond the Stars is exactly what I was hoping for from this series. Hickman and Pitarra work exceedingly well together in crafting a really particular kind of world and the work as a whole here is just completely engaging even if the bones of the storyline are predictable and familiar enough. It's the quirks, characters and the sharp pivots that makes it a blast to read with the twists and turns you don't expect – and then realize you should. With the caper fully underway and the job at hand in motion, we get a strong second installment that leaves me craving more and ready to re-read both installments a few times between now and the next. Very, very good stuff. Read Full Review

    The Manhattan Projects: The Sun Beyond the Stars #2 shows that this is a book worth waiting for. From the broad strokes of an intergalactic heist down to the smallest details in Pitarra's backgrounds, this issue is a delight to read and re-read. Moving beyond the Cold War setting has allowed it to embrace the most bizarre elements of the series. The result is something that feels both fresh and familiar, but always like damn good comics.

    There have been such long hiatuses in Manhattan Projects recently that it's easy to forget what once made this book so special, but once you read this issue it will all come back to you. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Aug 4, 2015

    Even though I'm not so hot on Yuri Gagarin stealing the spotlight away from the Einsteins, "Sun Beyond The Stars" #2 is still an incredibly fun heist of a comic that revels in the hypocrisy of all its characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Jul 29, 2015

    Ours is but to wonder, unfortunately, but the delay isn't doing this book any favors. And while it remains in its middle-of-the-road malaise as a total package, its art is simply too good, and too one-of-a-kind, for me to pass up. At least for now. Read Full Review
