I thought that Manhattan Projects was weird, and then the main characters stuck a cybernetic spike into Franklin Roosevelt's head, creating the world's first artificial intelligence.

This is not your grandfather's Manhattan Project. In Hickman's altered vision, the Project brain trust, populated with twisted versions of physicists Oppenheimer, Einstein, Feyman, Fermi, and Daghlian, develop countless weapons of mass destruction. The super-scientists also delve into other aspects of fringe sciences such as other-dimension worlds, teleportation, and an update on the "brain in the jar." In this first chapter of the surprise-filled tale, the scientists and their backgrounds are introduced as are their missions. Though Hickman does a fantastic job of displaying the varied personalities and complex storylines, the focal point of The Manhattan Projects Volume 1: Science. Bad. is the slow reveal of the world's secret history. Pitarra's and Bellair's art compliment and often enhance the complex ideas.

Fantastic science-themed alternative reality story line featuring Feynman, Einstein, Oppenheimer, and Yuri.

Definitely not what I expected: the story of the making of the atomic bomb in the 1940s. Instead I got a pulp era mad scientist SF story. A bit confusing. Might get clearer with more volumes in the series
