4.0 out of 5 stars The Empiricists Strike Back, 9 Oct. 2013
This review is from: The Manhattan Projects Volume 2 (Manhattan Projects Tp) (Paperback)
NOTE: Amazon have linked my review of the paperback collection of Manhattan Projects volume two (collecting issues #6-10) to volume two of the hardcover collection, which collects issues #11-20.

For my reviews of issues #11-20, see the following two paperback collections of those issues -
The Manhattan Projects Volume 3 TP
The Manhattan Projects Volume 4: The Four Disciplines TP

=====

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.
