    Geekality - Julius Freeman Nov 6, 2012

    MP never bores and it reads like a dream. I turn the page with eager anticipation. Aliens, conspiracy, thrills, and colors pleasing to the eyes makes MP a dream come true for any comic loving fan. I admit this book can only go so far before it becomes stale and, as surprising as this may sound, look forward to the end of this series. Transmetropolitian comes to mind. It was a fantastic series, but Warren Ellis ended it gracefully. I hope that Hickman does the same with this series. It deserves it. If you havent been picking up this book yet, then I feel sorry for you. Really, I do because youre missing out on some mind bending, gut wrenching, awe inspiring fun. So, get your butt off your chair, go to your local comic book store, and pick up MP. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ed Allen Nov 9, 2012

    Each new episode in Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra's comic has brought fresh twists and turns in a complex plot with rapidly escalating stakes. I'm completely hooked, I can't wait to see where the series goes from here and I think it has the potential to be remembered as an all-time classic comic, though since I am obviously already invested in the series you could easily accuse me of bias here. Regardless, if you aren't already following The Manhattan Projects then I can't emphasise enough just how badly you need to read this; obviously I can't guarantee it will suit your tastes but if you do take to it then there's very few monthly comics more rewarding than this one.

    Read Comic Books - Roderick Ruth Nov 7, 2012

    Seriously though, what are you waiting for? This is probably the best Image book out there right now, and with the release of the trade paperback collection issues #1-5 and the fact that Hickman admitted that they're on a 6 week delay, there's no excuse to not catch up to this title in time!

    Entertainment Fuse - Eric "djotaku" Mesa Nov 8, 2012

    When it comes to Hickman, you really need to be careful where you jump in because he usually is spinning a lot of plates at once, plot-wise. It makes for brilliant stories, but these are stories that need to be read from the beginning. It's a bit quirky so it's a must-buy for fans of the series, a pretty good recommendation if you're a Hickman fan, but I can't universally recommend it for everyone the way I could with a good Dan Slott Amazing Spider-Man.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Nov 10, 2012

    Another really strong issue that begins to tell a bigger story with these characters we've become fond of. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Justin Barnes Nov 3, 2012

    Really a great issue. I give it a 9/10. Everything Hickman has been building so far is starting to take shape. If you are a Jonathan Hickman fan, or looking for something outside of the uniform superhero genre you should for sure give this series a try. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 7, 2012

    The series looks to be growing ever more wild and gruesome in the coming issues, and that's exactly what I want from my alternate reality tales of science run amuck. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Dave Conde Nov 9, 2012

    All that said, some of you will not care for it. It fits and supports the story, but no one will say that it's just a joy to look at. You'll probably know it in a few pages, and if that's the case you will be able to move back to more conventional comics. And you're life will be the poorer for it.THE BOTTOM LINE: Wolf it down, come back for more Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Zac Boone Nov 7, 2012

    All in all, despite the interesting changes and reveals we see this issue, it's ultimately bogged down by the excess of conversation. It's understandable that, in a book about intellectuals, a lot of the plot would be mental and take place in conversations, but I really wish there were a greater sense that things were happening.
