A crazy alternative history that in a shockingly funny way goes pretty far to try to explain the pure evil of the time.
Funny look through the lens of an alternate universe. Whole series very good.
If you enjoy science and a bit of history, then you'll enjoy this series. This series gives an alternate take on the creation of the atomic bomb and important groups of society coming into power with weapons and tech from alien planets to things from the past and the future during the World Wars of mankind.
An alternate history look at what really happened around the making of the first atomic bomb.
I thought that Manhattan Projects was sort of weird...and then the main characters stuck a cybernetic spike into Franklin Roosevelt's head, creating the world's first artificial intelligence.

Very twisted yet enjoyable take on the subject. A fun read!!
A great graphic novel. Hickman's historical fiction plot imagines that the Manhattan Project and Area 52 are only the tip of the iceberg in late 1940s America. The plot is violent, but completely engrossing. The artwork is sparse and uses limited colors - but to great affect. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment.
This is not your grandfather's Manhattan Project. In Hickman's altered vision, the Project brain trust, populated with twisted versions of physicists Oppenheimer, Einstein, Feyman, Fermi, and Daghlian, develop countless weapons of mass destruction. The super-scientists also delve into other aspects of fringe sciences such as other-dimension worlds, teleportation, and an update on the "brain in the jar." In this first chapter of the surprise-filled tale, the scientists and their backgrounds are introduced as are their missions. Though Hickman does a fantastic job of displaying the varied personalities and complex storylines, the focal point of The Manhattan Projects Volume 1: Science. Bad. is the slow reveal of the world's secret history. Pitarra's and Bellair's art compliment and often enhance the complex ideas.
Fantastic science-themed alternative reality story line featuring Feynman, Einstein, Oppenheimer, and Yuri.
