The book deserves 5 stars, the shipping gets 2 stars. Let's get this out of the way first, in agreement with the reviewer above, Amazon has been slipping on their shipping of late. I used to get these trades in boxes delivered to my building's front office. Now I find them in oversized semi-padded envelopes shoved into my tiny P.O. box by USPS (that master of delivery). It leads to bent, misshapen books, and Amazon is better than that.

As for the actual review: Jonathan Hickman, for those who don't know him, is a master of grand ideas and bold intricate plotting. His other books The Nightly News, Pax Romana, and his celebrated run on Fantastic Four and FF display a staggering imagination, and you really just have to strap yourself in and go along for the ride. In my experience, it always pays off. Manhattan Projects, Vol. 2 is no different. The series revolves around an alternate history of the men behind the Manhattan Projects (Einstein, Oppenheimer, Feynman, etc.) in which, frankly, they're all mad scientists run amok.

While Volume 1 was quirky, unusual, and vaguely unsettling in its eccentricities, Volume 2 is equal parts wild and exciting. Volume 1 involved a lot of setup, exposing the reader to the players in Hickman's grand world of science gone bad. Volume 2 introduces their Soviet counterparts, including the ubiquitous but suitable brain-in-a-jar-on-a-body, Yuri Gagarin, a talking space dog, and an ex-Nazi scientist who sheds new light on Wernher von Braun. Hickman remains witty as ever while exploring the idea of what happens when science reigns supreme.

While understandably not as riveting as the first volume of the "Manhatten Projects" TPB/graphic novel, in that the irreverent cast of characters and imaginative twisted speculative history are familiar to the reader by the secong book, Volume 2 of the series still entertains even as it slyly manages to ask pertinent questions about man's obsession for technological advance and the ethics of its pursuit.
Well written, well drawn. The series' tagline is "Science. Bad." The first two volumes I've read, however...? Book. Good.

This story is violent and surreal and it keeps getting weirder. Ordinarily, I would love that. But I felt like too much was being thrown at me. There were potentially fascinating aspects of the story that were presented and then rapidly abandoned. It left me frustrated. This was a fun read, but not a particularly fulfilling one.

More of the same, which is to say unlike any other comic book. It splinters off into new directions and generally compells one to keep reading to see what is going to happen next.

Alright, I'm convinced, this book is genius.

The historical re-imaginings walk a beautiful, clever line, imbuing this title with a gross charm that is impossible to overlook. Nazis, Russian reds, cannibalistic psychopaths, these are our heroes, and it doesn't matter how despicable they are, for they represent the united front of scientific knowledge. Science is power, and it is those with the power who truly rule the world. The themes of the book become clear and essential in volume two, cementing the framework set forth by the first volume. Between Pitarra's incredible design and Hickman's Oppenheimer-esque omni-braind, Manhattan Projects has all the potential in the world.

This book is weird. There is no other way to describe it. It is also very fun to read and makes me laugh at the content. Well worth taking the time to enjoy. Dig in!

I didn't think it had quite the delivery and uniqueness of the first books. I hope this project has a set direction in mind.....I like the characters and the story. The artwork is also quite well done and has a very scematic feel that lends to the scientific theme. I hope the story finds some firm direction towards a goal...the second issue just had a bit of write as we go feel. I will buy volume three before deciding on the series overall.
