The Manhattan Projects is what a true science fiction nerd wishes history were like. The first issue introduced us to Director Robert Oppenheimer in all of his schizophrenic glory, and the second issue builds an insane supporting cast of characters around him.

This issue abandons Oppenheimer and focuses on two other legendary scientists: Richard Feynman and Werner Von Braun.

Wernher von Braun takes centre stage in this increasingly wtf alt-history, starring enslaved Nazi geniuses, cosmonauts, cyborg Presidents, a gloriously schizophrenic Robert Oppenheimer, and Einstein-on-the-booze. Beautiful demonisation of all the big names in science; funny, disgusting, horrific by turns... haven't got a clue where it's going but by 'eck it's an enjoyable ride. And the bizarrely simple-at-first-glance art really grows on one. Recommended.

This really picked up speed quickly. Still not quite sure about the art but I love the story that Hickman is creating.

Great and getting greater. Can't recommend it enough for Physics nerds. Hickman apparently is.

It’s no small thing to die and be born again.

After a certain amount of time you get tired of wasting talent. Of being part of a fraudulent profession — or actually being a fraud. And, most importantly, not living the life you are capable of having.

I remember the first night I went out with my wife. It was raining, she was beautiful… it was a normal, ordinary, intentionally uneventful, date. But at
