    One thought on “The Manhattan Projects: Deluxe Edition, Volume One”

    1. I didn't get it. At All.I would have given it one star, but everyone else seems to have loved it.So, I think it might just been the kind of story that either went over my head, because it has some sort of Loooook Deeeeper Into Your Miiiiiind style of storytelling. Or (option 2) maybe I just don't have good taste?Nah.But, whatever the reason, I didn't enjoy Hickman's story.The gist of is that it's a twist on all of the people & events surrounding the Manhattan Project. In case you don't know [...]

    2. "Hmmm." What a book!If I'm being honest, Hickman isn't my favorite. In fact, this is the only series I've really enjoyed. Because, I think, it appeals to everything I love. And it's deep, ambitious, stays on track. It's just so god damn insane. And the artwork is INCREDIBLE. It's historical fiction surrounding the Manhattan Project during World War Two. Plus science fiction and horror. Plus physicists, killer robots, telepaths, death monks, soldiers, genocidal aliens, world dominators. Plus a ce [...]

    3. Super quirky and super weird with lots of science fiction injected into it.A Lot of reviews of people who didn't like this say "I just don't get it?!".I get that they don't get it because unless you love science and understand what significance these characters had in history then you won't get some of the jokes, but basically this book is about a bunch of genius serial killers. The whole consuming people for knowledge is weird as well, but is a ritual performed by cannabalist tribes thought to [...]

    4. the idea here is that everyone is evil (with one minor exception) who worked on the Manhattan Project. Not just evil, but brilliantly madly evil and working on so much more than the bomb. And yet, despite the absence of good guys, Hickman kept me turning the pages to find out what happens next.

    5. I remember somebody once explained that Hickman writes his series based on "What would happen if this belief or part of society had no restraints/limits?" The Black Monday Murders is the world of finance, East of West is religion, and now The Manhattan Projects is science.So ask yourself, what if the world of scientists was composed of entirely evil people and they had no restraints. Nobody questioning if they should do something. Nobody to tell them to stop. That's what happens here.Its also a [...]

    6. Crazy science fiction in an alternate reality starting in the 1940's. The Manhattan Projects starts with the known assembly of scientist for the manhattan project goal of producing the atomic bomb for purposes of winning the war. Quickly the scientific team discovers we are not alone in the universe and the best hope for man kind is to create their own shadow government and quickly dismantle the old world order. Chaos and borderline offensiveness consume this book but make it a bingefest at the [...]

    7. Typical Hickman really, he is great at world building, but when it comes to characterisation, it really isn't his forte.

    8. This volume comprises the first two story arcsof this phenomenal seriesThe scientists from the secret weapons projects fight against The Allied Enemiesduring WWII and then once that conflict has been ended by an application of weird and violent sciencethe attention is drawn to the real threat to Earth Aliensthe combined forcesof The Manhattan Projects and the Soviet Star Cityput plans into motionto mobilize Earth against the imminent invasionBut not all the members of The Project have Earth's be [...]

    9. holy crap, i love this book. what more can i say? the story was captivating and told with great pace. i love all the interesting characters that make up this elaborate world. i strongly encourage everyone to read this. there is a strong sense of humor from the author, but there was also some messages about life, love and nature. just enough not to be preachye artwork is great. very colorful and lively.

    10. Maybe, one the best arc in The Manhattan Projects (I doubt, because there is a Oppenheimer Civil War story in Book Three, which contains much more implication above the main narration).It gambles on the plain meaning of portraits, but use it as an instrument for the whole story (As opposed to middling Book Four).All in all, solid B.

    11. This book features at least two Einsteins, Feynman (handsome prodigy), Oppenheimer (multiple-personality psychopath), Fermi (extraterrestrial), Kamikaze Killing Machines, Death Buddhists, aliens, Gagarin (cosmonaut), Laika (talking space dog), FDR:AI (AI), Truman (Freemason), and Von Braun (bionic rocket scientist). That's reason enough to read it.

    12. Ridiculous premise made very entertaining. Cool, singular art-style. Great re-casting of historical figures that include Richard Feynman, Yuri Gagarin, Werner von Braun and a badass Einstein.A little to0 silly and off the wall to recommend, but I still really liked it.

    13. Nick Pitarra's art is not my favorite, that's why I knocked off one star, but it strangely works for the book. Jonathan's smart writing shines in this one as there are a lot of interesting concepts regarding how science and fiction work together. Great world building on this one.

    14. An amazing story that you have to read. The Manhattan Projects it's a series that takes all great science-fiction elements and combines them to create an epic, adventure ride that is actually surprising at many moments.

    15. DNF. May give it a go again somewhere down the line though. Just not in the right frame of mind atm. Meh.

    16. It was strange. I was expecting more historical fiction than sci-fi. I like the art in it but the story was just too strange for me to want to keep reading.

    17. Crazy, weird with interesting art style. Manhattan Projects is unique and beyond classification. Read it!
