‘The Manhattan Projects': Fermi And Oppenheimer [Jonathan Hickman Exclusive]
Speaking last year with ComicsAlliance's Chris Sims, Hickman described The Manhattan Projects as an alternate history revealing the real story (not really) behind the actual Manhattan Project, which produced the world's first atomic bomb. "The atomic program, was like a cover for all the crazier, cooler experiments that were going on -- all the other Manhattan Projects, which is where the 'S' comes from," Hickman said. "It's bad scientists -- like the Thunderbolts of science." The Manhattan Projects stars J. Robert Oppenheimer, Enrico Fermi, Yuri Gagarin and Albert Einstein, among other real-life characters including President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
