The Manhattan Projects, Vol. 4: The Four Disciplines (2014)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I think I could read a comic series just on the blue alien, he's a riot. He was a refreshing character with such a nonchalant attitude it was fun reading his dialogue. The story itself was action packed with a nice conclusion for some of the major storylines. I enjoy the violet a...

review 1: The plot of the first collection has a lot more forward thrust. This book slows to develop other characters and other story lines. While I appreciate that it is trying to sketch a complex world, I found it too often confusing. I had a harder time connecting emotionally to the cha...

review 1: Well, here's hoping the second volume can mend some of the issues with the first. The fast pacing of the first five issues seemed a bad choice for the complexity of the story being told. I have no idea what limits their are to the powers the fourth horseman, Death, possesses. ...

review 1: A quirky alternate history starting with WWII and leading in a variety of odd directions. I can't say I fell in love with this, but I can't fault it; it just wasn't entirely to my taste. It might grow on me if I find time to read further volumes and/or delve into more of the hist...

review 1: When dealing with superheroes at least, the term "Volume 1" is pretty meaningless. There are references to events that happened prior to this book, presumably in Volume 0, or perhaps even Volume -1. I've been reading Marvel titles long enough to recognize most of the cast, even...

English

review 1: This was my first real attempt at reading Fantastic Four. And yet, I kind of feel like I know the characters, at least on a basic, shallow level. Hickman didn't really write anything that would make me change my mind about any of them, but I really don't think he was trying to re...

review 1: An alien in the inner circle makes his play, aiming to alert the cosmos that the Earthmen are dangerous. The Oppenheimer war escalates with a decisively mad gambit by the forces of reason. This is a volume that sees the projects suffer serious setbacks, but it also puts forward a...

review 1: INSANE. This book is completely insane. I can't explain everything that has happened because I'm still processing it. Take scientific achievement during the last century (Nuclear Weapons, space exploration, etc.), frame them in historical events (WWII, etc.) and then fill in all ...

review 1: I really liked the idea of a conspiracy spanning back thousands of years about the beginnings of Shield. Sadly this book just did not deliver.It basically is all exposition with no actual story or character development to speak of. And if you want to set up a great conspiracy typ...

review 1: With a first volume that pulled me in with its Sci-fi/western mashup, East of West was on my must-read list for future volumes. Now, after this third installment, I won't be coming back to it. There just isn't enough to keep me here- not a single character to care about, no quota...

review 1: I really liked this book! It’s fun and creative in a way that’s become harder to find in the worlds of Marvel and DC. All in all this is really a sci-fi book starring the Avengers, which may sound stupid since a lot of stuff in the Marvel Universe can be considered sci-fi. This b...

review 1: Enjoyable, and compelling enough to get me invested in the plot, but I'm suspicious of something that seems to pour several archetypes of myth and fantasy and sf and action westerns into the same pot and stir, as if just hoping a cohesive tale will emerge.Alternate history, dysto...

review 1: East of West the story from Jonaathan Hickman was very though provoking and sinister all at once. The story is based in a alternative history of the world set in the future (the years 2050+). With a feeling like the game Red Dead Revolver this story follows cowboys, Native Americ...

review 1: It's an awesome concept, and kept just grey enough that paradoxes, morality, and historical accuracy can be painted in broad strokes without getting lost in details or taking a too-rigid stance - but despite that, it failed to really grip. Given you have such a brilliant setting ...

review 1: Bullet Review:That's it! No more buying trades just because Captain Marvel is on the cover!Seriously, what did I spend the last two days agonizing over? WHAT THE FRAK HAPPENED? I though Volume 1 was inscrutable enough, but this...this was absolute gibberish!Characters barely act ...

review 1: A wonderful finale. Hickman gives voice to the full ensemble cast he's gathered during his run, Moloids and mermen, the Dragon Man, Alex Powers and more. He has a lot of fun but also invests real growth and meaning in his characters, recruiting a new genius from Wakanda and offer...

review 1: Crossing both past and present, we get to see how the Asgardian Thor came to be a member of Nick Fury's Ultimates. We begin with the "lunatic" called Thor under supervision by James and Brian Braddock; they call in psychotherapist Donald Blake to evaluate the man and see if he wi...

review 1: Jonathan Hickman's ideas are pretty over the top. Sometimes it hits, sometimes it misses. Here, its a huge hit. There is a lot going on, at times too much, but overall Hickman reigns it in and tells an epic story. The collection is big due to the monstrous issue #600 which ha...

review 1: Wow. Wow, wow, wow, wow. An incredible concept (what if the Manhattan Project as we know it was just one of a series of dastardly scientific weapons programs run by the top minds in the world) that is told with reckless, joyful abandon. This book has it all: a fucked-up (but geni...

review 1: I found this on somebody's list of must-read graphic novels, but I have to say I didn't get far into it. I've always enjoyed stories that play games with history, from BURR or FLASHMAN to FATHERLAND or even THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN... but increasingly over the years,...

review 1: How do you approach a theme like WWII –that has been beaten to death– and still make it surprising and interesting? For Jonathan Hickman it’s to forget everything you knew about it and just have fun with it – lot of fun. At times, we are basically left to ask ourselves, “What the...

review 1: This was very impressive and enjoyable to read. I've never read anything by Hickman and he is quite a unique voice. His dialogue has a style all its own, but he also uses humor well. He also has a clear eye for science and to my surprise (being more of an artistic and literatu...

review 1: Hickman shifts his plots forward in this volume as the group is scattered to deal with different crises. There are a lot of nice moments: Galactus' fear at the return of Franklin Richards' powers, the Thing getting a much-needed night out as Ben Grimm and a bunch of child geniuse...

review 1: there is a ton of very different things going on here, with each issue almost being it's own little thing all slightly related to the Fantastic Four. Having read a lot of the later Hickman stuff BEFORE this I know where this is all going, so I found it very enjoyable going back ...

review 1: This book is a great piece of evidence as what makes the Ultimate Marvel Universe great! Jonathan Hickman and Carlos Pacheco create a tale of Thor’s past that fits into everything we’ve read in Ultimates but is still riveting. There are multiple plot twists and great reveals. ...

review 1: I enjoyed this, but it was not easy reading. First of all, it's volume 2 of a series that took an ill-explained concept, fiddled with it a bit, and then took a complete left turn with it. Add to this that it's a crossover with a big Marvel event and another title, and the fact th...

review 1: And this is what it all comes down to. I knew what was going to happen and still I was shocked at how emotional it (and I) got. The last issue was by far my favorite of the entire series - really, really well done. When reading this volume, I was confused here and there, and I co...

review 1: An invading force has devastated the 21st century, and in the 23rd century time travel is being used to try to stop the force before it arrives, with predictable anachronistic problems- going back into time to change things, then coming forward to see what’s happened, is not an e...

review 1: Some comic books have a plot and decent characters and other good stuff. Others are worthless and have people saying "my hero is a billion times stronger than yours." This book is a prelude to something so the plot of just the book will not completely be what the plot of the seri...

review 1: Utterly wonderful and a fantastic outing for the Howling Commandos. It's great to see them with a chapter of Secret Warriors dedicated to them, and it fits well in a series that is for the most part episodic, focusing on different storylines with greater or lesser intensity. This...

review 1: NOTE: This serves as a review of Volumes 1-6 of "Secret Warriors." I am an unabashed Jonathan Hickman fan, I will read anything he does and I have yet to be disappointed by any of his works. They are complex narratives that can seem confusing and nonsensical throughout the readin...
