I was intrigued by the semi-mystical, semi-sci fi approach taken to rewriting history here. I do not know if I would classify "The Manhattan Projects" as alternate history per se, since in AH, the alternate worlds generally have their own internal consistency. There is internal consistency here, but it is intentionally frayed at the edges, as the insane and the embittered intervene in the "real" world for their own ends, or just to play a rigged game of dice with the universe.
The art is amazing. It is both intricate and sloppy, portraying a seemingly controlled world that has chaos just below the surface. As he has done in other works, Hickman uses color to great effect, with the good/sane cast in calming blue and the evil/insane in red.
There are times when the story is so strange that it is hard to follow -- the genesis of the "infinite Oppenheimers" isn't immediately clear, for instance. And the skewed timeline does not quite make sense even within the vague parameters -- JFK is somehow president within six months of Truman dying in office (at which time, at least in this timeline, Kennedy would be below age 35). But these are minor quibbles.
Read THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS. You'll thank me!
The transaction was less stellar. Vol 2 arrived promptly, but I wanted to read the series in order. Two additional weeks passed, and still no Vol 1. I finally checked with the vendor, who reluctantly refunded my money (at least, he said he did). Then I re-ordered Vol 2, which then showed up promptly. Meanwhile I went ahead and read Vol 2.
