It seems that even super-science is bound to its limitations, no matter how bizarre they may be. As sharp-eyed readers may have noticed -- and as reported by Multiversity -- the latest issue of Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra's Manhattan Projects revealed that the series will be taking a hiatus over the next few months while the creators tinker with the book's format, presumably with the goal of delivering even more horrifying and Earth-shattering mad science in the months to come.

In this issue, we flashback to the members of the project burying one of their own, as fractures begin to form between the various scientists. Image Comics has provided ComicsAlliance with a six page preview of The Manhattan Projects #13, which you can view below.
