Format: Paperback
The story running through issues #6-10 of Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra's The Manhattan Projects are collected as The Manhattan Projects Volume 2 TP. This is an alternative history set in a past just after the end of the Second World War that is not quite our past. It is populated by mad scientists who are pulp SF versions of ones that existed in our world, and who won the war (and defeated an intergalactic empire as well). Now they are out to win the peace, with their Russian allies, Yuri Gagarin and Laika the Cosmodog, which involves overthrowing the Freemasonic dictatorship that is now secretly running the White House, and their allies in the Kremlin (I'm not making this up - Jonathan Hickman is). Meanwhile, in Joseph (evil twin of Robert) Oppenheimer's head, murdered Robert is hatching a conspiracy...

This comic book is really hard to describe, but if you read the first volume, then this continues in the same vein, bout moves onwards and upwards. These are not pleasant people, and they don't do pleasant things, but it is fascinating to read/watch what happens.

If you haven't read these books yet and you are into to science fiction graphic novels, this is definitely one to get. The story centres around some of the most progressive scientists who changed the world and pushed the boundaries of science for good or bad. Oppenheimer, Einstein, Richard Feynman, Enrico Fermi and many others.

This tells the story of the kind of disturbing things these guys did in the name of the cold war. The story arc follows through from the first book with individual cases punctuating the narrative. With a little bit of googling you should be able to keep up to pace with the story and characters and 'get' some of the historical references as they add to the characters and the sense of setting.

I didn't find the narrative difficult to follow and anyone who likes to read and even a flimsy grasp on history, as I have, will enjoy the dark tale of what men will do to elevate themselves to gods and the thin line between genius and madness.

I really enjoy this series. It has the kind of imagination to it you will never mistake as plausible, yet it has so many ideas and crazy characters, you can't give up on the reading for sheer curiosity. This is great stuff. Animation is different and requires some getting use to. This is not a superhero or movie-like looking series, but something more introvert, yet good.

This second book is a little less rich in plot twists than the first, but it puts the story into perspective for what comes next. If you are a science fiction fan, you will enjoy this a lot.

Having now read the first two volumes of Manhattan Projects, I like the concept of the books; an alternative vision of the project whereby the development of the atomic bomb was merely the public face of an Area 51 style establishment developing all sorts of crazy technology, making contact with aliens, etc.

The art style is interesting, and definitely a break from the usual over-glossy illustrations found in most Marvel books these days. My major complaint is that the reader is left to fill in a lot of the gaps in the storylines, and that the books (thusfar) have lacked much of an overall story arc, preferring to focus on individual stories from the projects, some of which are explained better than others. There is great characterisation in the books (the story of Oppenheimer's brother killing him and consuming his soul is a brilliant depiction of a fictional psychopath) but the stories feel meandering and sometimes it's difficult to work out exactly what is going on.

I'll probably pick up the third volume when it surfaces because I'm interested to see where they take the concept, but compared to the coherent storytelling of books like Saga this falls short.
