    The Manhattan Projects has always been good, boasting big ideas and a fascinating cast of oddball characters from the very beginning, but since issue #8 Id argue the series has upped its game to a whole new level, with an unbroken chain of 5-star masterpieces. With this insanely high standard, The Manhattan Projects is beginning to challenge even the mighty Saga as the most consistently awesome comic currently in the market. Read Full Review

    In short, you need to believe the hype around this book. I’m not being hyperbolical when I say that The Manhattan Projects is quite possibly the most original, completely engrossing non-superhero comic book series I have ever read, and if you’re not reading it, there is something fundamentally wrong with you at the subatomic level.

    The strength of this issue is enough to keep me on board. The previous issue was one of the best and while I didn't think Hickman could top it, he definitely does. Manhattan Projects is more planned that I originally thought, and I was taken by surprise with the direction of the story. I look forward to seeing what else Hickman has up his sleeve, especially if we can see more issues like this one. Read Full Review

    The Manhattan Projects#12 drags the skeletons out of yet another character's closet, but, in the process, it makes last issue's focus character, Harry Daghlian, even more likeable as he suffers the betrayal of a friend. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Hansel Moreno Jun 12, 2013

    Last month when issue 11 came out I was so happy about a reprieve Hickman gave us from the madness. This issue there is no mercy. Hickman digs the knife in deep, twists and smiles. The dynamics of the team are re explored and revisited through a new perspective. Sit tight loyal readers. It gets messy. Read Full Review

    If you're current on MANHATTAN PROJECTS, give Issue #11 a re-read for sentimental reasons before opening up this one. Have an ice cream while you're at it. Read Full Review

    Overall, this issue reveals that Hickman has a lot more in store for us with The Manhattan Projects and his storytelling his often layered with multiple plot simultaneously occuring.While this issue offers new insight and motivations to past events, it also manages to posit even newer ones and keep us waiting in suspense for what will happen next.
