    So apparently what happened is Manhattan Projects was canceled after issue 20, then relaunchedthan year later for a short run that told a different story that focused on different characters, different plot, different everything Then when they reprinted things, they just labeled those new issues Volume 6 and lumped them in with the original series.I learned this a long time after I d bought all six volumes of the comic, thinking that they told, y know, a full contiguous story But the So apparently what happened is Manhattan Projects was canceled after issue 20, then relaunchedthan year later for a short run that told a different story that focused on different characters, different plot, different everything Then when they reprinted things, they just labeled those new issues Volume 6 and lumped them in with the original series.I learned this a long time after I d bought all six volumes of the comic, thinking that they told, y know, a full contiguous story But they didn t So much of what was started in the early issues never comes to fruition So many mysteries that were played out for a long while were never resolved.Instead, the final volume of the series is a weird side story that contains none of the main characters the series started with Needless to day The whole experience hasn t been a pleasant one And it s too bad, as I ve really enjoyed Hickman s work up until this point, and was really interested in the story this comic started off telling

    There are some pretty depressing stories out there in the world of literature, classics that include lines that convey an unimagined depth of pathos and sorrow, such as the followingI buried Little Ann by the side of Old Dan I knew that was where she wanted to be I also buried part of my life along with my dog And Percy was shaking his brother, and Ron was kneeling beside them, and Fred s eyes stared without seeing, the ghost of his last laugh still etched upon his face When someone you There are some pretty depressing stories out there in the world of literature, classics that include lines that convey an unimagined depth of pathos and sorrow, such as the followingI buried Little Ann by the side of Old Dan I knew that was where she wanted to be I also buried part of my life along with my dog And Percy was shaking his brother, and Ron was kneeling beside them, and Fred s eyes stared without seeing, the ghost of his last laugh still etched upon his face When someone you love dies, and you re not expecting it, you don t lose her all at once you lose her in pieces over a long time the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers Sean Gibson was born on January 17, 1979 I m not sure Manhattan Projects will go down as a classic, but, jeez talk about ending on a down note In the interest of avoiding spoilers, I won t disclose exactly why the end was so dark, so I ll focus instead on a brief summary of the series, as seems fitting in a review of its concluding volume.The first half or a bitthan half, perhaps of Manhattan Projects is a fascinating albeit incredibly weird and ridiculously violent alternate history sci fi take on WWII, the Cold War, and the development of nuclear technology The latter half becomes well, I don t know how to describe what it becomes, really and, given that I style myself as a writer until I m a REAL writer, I have to use quote marks they re like trainings wheels , that s a little bit like Ron Jeremy struggling with flaccidity just when the cinematographer sets up for the most dangerous shot in the biz that s the reverse ball angle view, naturally Not only do you not expect it, but it s so unnerving and unmanning that you re not sure how to react, so you just break out the Bananagrams and offer to make a pitcher of margaritas.I ll say this the second half of MP eschews alternate history to go full sci fi weirdness, with intergalactic travel and alien genocide the topics du jour On balance, I very much enjoyed the opening triptych of collected volumes, getting from them a frisson of the same excitement I got from early volumes of Preacher and Transmetropolitan, albeit to a much lesser degree and certainly MP as a whole fails to reach the rarefied air of those luminary series The second half well, it was fine, and it had its moments, but it didn t quite hit the mark for me I enjoyed this seriesthan I did Hickman s Marvel work, and I think it s fair to say that if you like Hickman s work generally, you ll dig this On balance, we ll give the series a 3.5 rating, but just 3 stars for its kick me while I m down, why don t you conclusion

    Ok, this one definitely went much weirder than the main series did The humor and insane ideas are still there though.

    A friend of mine who is getting to know my tastes pretty well was like, Hey, you know that series you tried and didn t really like Well, they basically ended it but kept the name and now it s this story about a guy and his dog travelling through space And I flipped through it and saw that it was mostly weird aliens for characters and I was like, Yes, I will read this thing I did enjoy this volume of Manhattan Projects better than the previous volume I d read, but only a smidge better, so i A friend of mine who is getting to know my tastes pretty well was like, Hey, you know that series you tried and didn t really like Well, they basically ended it but kept the name and now it s this story about a guy and his dog travelling through space And I flipped through it and saw that it was mostly weird aliens for characters and I was like, Yes, I will read this thing I did enjoy this volume of Manhattan Projects better than the previous volume I d read, but only a smidge better, so it still gets three stars The weird aliens are great and whatever the hell they re all doing to each other is hilarious I was not at all invested in any of the characters, and despite the fact that it s the kind of book designed to communicate the idea that Space is Awesome, the characters all pretty much seem to feel like Space is Lonely and Not Awesome Which is kind of a bummer And the end is sad and also a bummer.I feel like Manhattan Projects, even as a space adventure, still demands things of me as a reader that I don t have to offer It demands that I don t really care about characters because most of them will die violently, and it demands that I get off, somehow, on this constant stream of death And I mean, hey, I liked X Statix as much as anyone, but at a certain point the schtick gets pretty fucking tired Manhattan Projects also asks that I ignore the fact there are no female characters ANYWHERE IN ALL OF FUCKING SPACE It was one thing when Vol 1 was some sort of 50 s sci fi parody, in which a bunch of talking man heads stand around saying man things I mean, I didn t like it, but it sort of made sense But now we re in MOTHERFUCKING SPACE and even though everyone is either a robot or a sentient orb or a robot or a six eyed two faced superintelligent muckymuck, SPACE IS ONLY FUCKING DUDES.Oh, maybe the dog was a girl I don t know.Anyway It s an attractive book with some fun sci fi stuff, and I didn t totally feel like I knew what was going on and I m not sure if I d read the four volumes I haven t read that I d have any better idea of what was going on I get the sense that no one involved is trying very hard, and all it makes me think is that we live in an age of very exciting and very disposable comics Not disposable like back in the 40s when little kids paid a nickel for some cheaply made funnybooks Disposable like we live in an age in which the big guys are just churning this shit out, and we re lapping it up, anyone can do anything and everything is so fucking cool and no one stops to ask if anyone has felt anything, at all, in fucking years, about any fucking thing whatsoever, at all, and no one can remember the last time that they just read a thing made by another person and that thing fucking meant something.And I don t mean meant something like, I dunno, a fucking koan or a parable or some shit I mean, just like, a person is in the pages reaching out to a person that is still left inside of you Manhattan Projects is a book that makes me feel hollow, like I am living in a time in which there s something important that I have lost Space is lonely Books are forgettable The world is full of dudes

    What can I say If you re gonna read this, read as much of it as possible in as short a time span as possible Or maybe this is the strongest endorsement I can make for wearing helmets and avoiding drugs and alcohol Kids, when you grow up, there will be comics you like But when you re older, you ll only get about 22 pages every 30 days You can do the math on that, it s not a lot And when these stories get complicated, you are going to need every ounce of brainpower to remember the details of What can I say If you re gonna read this, read as much of it as possible in as short a time span as possible Or maybe this is the strongest endorsement I can make for wearing helmets and avoiding drugs and alcohol Kids, when you grow up, there will be comics you like But when you re older, you ll only get about 22 pages every 30 days You can do the math on that, it s not a lot And when these stories get complicated, you are going to need every ounce of brainpower to remember the details of what the hell is going on Please Don t do drugs Don t drink alcohol Wear a helmet Don t do it for me Do it for the love of comics

    Focusing chiefly on Laika and her human, Yuri Gagarin is always going to win me over Such a good dog


  7. Koen Koen says:

    Off the rails I think I have missed the last two Manhattan Projects trades, but boy has this book changed in direction I am not sure if this is the very last book in this series This story certainly felt like a funny epilogue to what had transpired in the first four trades Sure, I have noticed that the book has strayedandaway from the serious, thriller tone andinto the absurd and the satirical, but damn is this story WAY out there.it was fun, but it didn t contain the great Off the rails I think I have missed the last two Manhattan Projects trades, but boy has this book changed in direction I am not sure if this is the very last book in this series This story certainly felt like a funny epilogue to what had transpired in the first four trades Sure, I have noticed that the book has strayedandaway from the serious, thriller tone andinto the absurd and the satirical, but damn is this story WAY out there.it was fun, but it didn t contain the great historical fiction that made the first four trades so enjoyable, besides having Yuri Gagarn I am so sorry for misspelling that so badly

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here MANHATTAN PROJECTS is one of my favourite series, but while the anarchic spirit of volumes 1 5 is still present in this spin off series, the story just isn t as compelling and the whole thing comes off as a kind of lame GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY riff Still, hard not to admire a book that ends with the two main characters burning to death as they fall into a sun Gutsy storytelling.

    What a thoroughly ridiculous space romp, violent and funny and final Yuri, I ve never liked you.
