"INFINITE OPPENHEIMERS"

What if the union of a generation's brightest minds like Albert Einstein and Robert Oppenheimer was not a signal for optimism, but foreboding? What if everything… went wrong?

In the year 1945, the atomic bomb proved its capacity for immense devastation, but what if the creation of that ultimate killing machine was just a cover for a series of other, more unusual, programs? A brand new, monthly ongoing series from Image Comics will pose that question by taking a look at one of the most critical periods of change in the 20th century through a lens both darkened and strange. Join us, for what is poised to the breakout hit of 2012, THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS!

Award-winning writer Jonathan Hickman (THE NIGHTLY NEWS, FF) and one of the best new talents to debut in comics during the last year, Nick Pitarra, are teaming up once again to present THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS. Following the completion of their critically acclaimed science fiction success, THE RED WING, the duo are taking the cautionary aspect of science fiction and applying it not to the future, but to our past!

"I think anyone that's followed my work knows about my affinity for near-future/alt-history, and THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS pretty much represents the crown jewel of all the stories I've ever cooked-up in that vein," detailed Hickman. "Honestly, if we do this right -- and at this point in the process, it sure feels like we are -- I think this might the perfect example of why I do these stories: It takes a world everyone knows, and blurs the lines between fiction and reality in a way that makes you question where one ends and the other begins. I can't wait for people to read it!"

THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #1, a 32-page full-color science fiction comic book for $3.50, will be on sale in stores on March 7 and available for order in the January issue of Previews. In the mean time, both THE RED WING TP (OCT11047, ISBN: 978-1-60706-479-4), a 144-page full-color trade paperback for $14.99, & THE NIGHTLY NEWS ANNIVERSARY EDITION HC (SEP110423, ISBN: 9978-1-60706-4619), a 272-page full-color hardcover graphic novel for $34.99, will be on sale in stores December 14.

Yeah, this book is probably going to melt my face off. But in the best way possible. I really loved Red Wing, so it'll be exciting to see what Hickman and Pitarra concoct for this concept--and with the freedom of an ongoing.

Hey Nick, a friend of mine is a huge Feynman fan and as he tells me Feynman loved the bongos. Played them constantly. Hope that helps. He also recommends "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!"

I can't wait for March 7th.

I got to pick up The Manhattan Projects 1 a hair early, and GOD DAMN was that a good read. Hickman is hit or miss with me*, but this is a solid hit out the gate. Its like, Prophet, good. With BKV's Saga out next week, Image could be scoring a major coup in the Science Fiction funnybook game. And I have to tell you. I love science fiction comics books gentleman. A lot.


*Just to quantify this; Nightly News and Pax Romana = Meh. Red Mass for Mars and The Red Wings = Sweet.
