“Never Forget. We owe the future to the Fascists.”
Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra take the already vast scope of Manhattan Projects and blast it wide open with a massive sci-fi detonation that pushes the title into a much more intricate and complex direction. With issue #2, aptly titled Rocket Man, Hickman introduces an exploding cast of scientists that call the Manhattan Projects home, along with their less optimistic counterparts in Nazi Germany. Rocket Man takes the series in an unexpected direction, one that proves to be much more engrossing, interesting, and layered than predicted.

Jonathan Hickman is no stranger to Image Comics. Beginning his relationship early as a fan, the now Triple-A writer was discovered by Image in 2006, where it became the home of some of his earliest works, includingThe Nightly News,Pax Romana,A Red Mass for Mars, andTranshuman. Hickman’s heavy-lifting as both writer and artist, along with the unrestrained no-holds-barred direction, quickly garnered critical praise in the form of an Eisner Nomination forThe Nightly News, as well as a dedicated following of fans.
As Hickman’s success and career continued to grow, Image remained the home of some of his most dynamic and imaginative projects. Along with artist Nick Pitarra, Hickman released Red Wing, as well as the recent mad science meets alternate history world of Manhattan Projects. If that was not enough, Hickman continues to pump out new works, like the conspiracy epic Secret, and the upcoming Feel Better Now.

Hickman continues to dominate Image Comics.
Jonathan Hickman aims to take over Image Comics as the acclaimed writer of Pax Romana, The Nighty News, and Red Mass for Mars delivers yet another fantastic release for the indie publisher. Along with last month’s Manhattan Projects, this week’s Secret #1 unleashes Hickman’s complex and wild imagination upon the world. Secret #1 is a collection of what appears to be several completely unrelated events, but with hints of an epic conspiracy and a secret that promises to take down whole governments, Secret #1 is the beginning of a mystery that I cannot wait to unravel.

Robert Oppenheimer enters a brand new version of The Manhattan Project.
If there is one new title every reader needs to pick up this week, it must be Manhattan Projects #1 from Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra, the creative team behind last year’s The Red Wing. Manhattan Projects is exactly what one would expect from Hickman’s unrestricted mind as he tackles theoretical science, alternate histories, and thematic dualities. Chronicling the real-life brilliance of Robert Oppenheimer, leading physicist behind the Manhattan Project and the first atomic bomb, Hickman establishes his alternate world then completely turns it all on its head and redefines the series with an amazing cliffhanger.
