If you're depending on a lying robot not to get you into trouble with an intergalactic criminal science organization called the Library, then always bet on Black.

The greatest FEEL GOOD, BAD SCIENCE book in the long history of man returns in THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS: THE SUN BEYOND THE STARS.

    While I read the previous series in trades, I'm really enjoying being able to take the time with the individual issues here – even bimonthly – to soak up the atmosphere. Hickman clearly knows how to enjoy this universe and does so in some great ways with the cast he's assembled and the alien races and worlds that he's building. The story itself is straightforward enough so it's easy to connect with, but it's the characters that make it both a thrill and a challenge since they're so very distinct. All of it allows Nick Pitarra to really just run wild with it and I'm loving the way he continues to bring all of this to life in a way that feels so non-standard and welcome. This is not a book that could work anywhere near as well with "traditional" comic style and Pitarra's work is what helps to elevate it to even greater levels. I can't wait to see what's next in this wide, weird, galaxy of theirs. Read Full Review

    While solid, "The Manhattan Projects: The Sun Beyond the Stars" #3 doesn't do the pick-up work this series needs to match the original "Manhattan Projects." While every series is different and there's no reason this needs to be the same as what came before it, I'd love to see "The Sun Beyond the Stars" get to a place where it can wow me with more than the artwork.

    Maybe it's the delays, more likely it's the splintering of the core group, but Manhattan Projects has really lost some of its magic since moving over to the BPRD/Hellboy-like miniseries model. Read Full Review
