The Manhattan Projects

If You Love ‘The Flash’ On TV, Try These Comics Next


The Flash has been one of the most consistently enjoyable and downright fun comic book adaptations since it debuted, and more than most of its peers it is blisteringly unafraid to embrace its comic book origins. In the space of two seasons we've got multiverses, time travel, and an honest-to-gosh Gorilla City, and it paved the way for shows like Arrow and Gotham to lighten up and have more fun.

With no new episodes of The Flash until later this year, you might be looking for something to fill that science-based superhero hole in your life, and we've got five great independent comics for you that, while they might not all feature a super-speedster punching a gorilla in the face, do live up to The Flash's absurdity and unrelenting inventiveness in one way or another!

Hickman And Pitarra’s ‘Manhattan Projects’ To Go On Hiatus Until March 2015, Returning With A New Format

Manhattan Projects, Image Comics

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.

‘It’s Totally Ridiculous': Ryan Browne On The New ‘God Hates Astronauts’ Ongoing At Image [Interview]

God Hates Astronauts Image Interview Ryan Browne

Get ready for more insanity from the Power Persons Five.

Writer/artist Ryan Browne's God Hates Astronauts, which started as a webcomic about crude, perhaps psychopathic superheroes battling outrageous villains and each other, and was eventually published in hardcover thanks to a massively successful Kickstarter, is coming to Image Comics as an ongoing series this August, and he promises all the silliness of what came before, though the plot may be a little more defined. We sat down with him at this year's C2E2 show to talk about what's in store, what has changed about the series, making deadlines, and what else might be in the pipeline.

Einstein Gets His Hands Dirty In ‘The Manhattan Projects’ #13 [Preview]

MP Einstein

In stores this week is The Manhattan Projects #13, the latest issue of the Image Comics title. Written by Jonathan Hickman with art from Nick Pitarra and Jordie Bellaire, the series features fictional (and slightly mad) versions of Einstein, Oppenheimer, Fermi, and other real life scientists from the World War II era, in an alternate history in which the Manhattan Project was actually a front for a group focused on far more esoteric scientific experiments.

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.
