Mad Science Returns in The Manhattan Projects: The Sun Beyond the Stars


If science isn't weird or mad, then you're not doing it right. What fun is science when it's just about science right? Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra know a thing or two about regaling readers with tales of science gone awry and slightly off-kilter in Manhattan Projects, a universe they're happy to return to in The Manhattan Projects: The Sun Beyond the Stars #1, hitting stores March 11, 2015.

"Nick and I are really excited about the new format," noted co-creator Hickman. "We're looking forward to telling stories that have a tighter scope because then we believe we can really open it up. Do some really big stuff."

"I just want to draw Russian dogs fighting aliens," said co-creator Pitarra. "And if I can throw in a few opposable thumbs as well, fantastic!"

In The Manhattan Projects: The Sun Beyond the Stars #1, Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin is lost in space—and only now does he find his true calling. With all new stories told in a brand-new format, the greatest feel good, bad science book in the long history of man returns in The Manhattan Projects: The Sun Beyond the Stars #1. The book is available under Diamond Code JAN150586. Full press release below.
