    This issues has some solid laughs, gorgeous art and escalating violence. Pitarra and Bellaire really have seem to have increased their skill levels and I can't wait to sink my teeth into the next issue. Read Full Review

    In issue 16, Jonathan Hickman's Manhattan Projects continues to prove why it is so singular amongst today's diverse library of books. It's the hazardous march toward the dark victory of science, the capture and hostile takeover of higher thinking and the danger-fraught conquest of alien worlds. It's stomach-churning discovery with knives, portals and bloated parasites. In short, it's Einstein with a fucking chainsaw. Read Full Review

    MANHATTAN PROJECTS is perpetually surprising; like the scientists it's based on, the series continues to push, to invent, to innovate. At this stage, the plot is fully unpredictable, and readers get to enjoy the strange and wonderful ride that Hickman, Pitarra, et al are taking us on without feeling spoiled by our own expectations. Is it weird? Absolutely. But for every bizarre wormhole that the plot dashes into, MANHATTAN PROJECTS emerges on the side of consistent entertainment. Read Full Review

    A solid, but unremarkable issue of TMP. It's nice to see the story develop an actual plotline. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Nov 13, 2013

    While issue #16 left a bit to be desired, it was another good addition overall. There were some interesting developments hinted at towards the end of the issue, but it seemed like too much of the beginning didnt feel perfectly necessary to move the story forward. Regardless, this series has been on a steady path since the beginning and the overall feel of Manhattan Projects #16 was consistent with previous issues. Read Full Review
