What if the union of a generation's brightest minds was not a signal for optimism, but foreboding? What if everything... went wrong? Welcome to The Manhattan Projects! Brought to you by award-winning writer Jonathan Hickman and possibly the best new talent in the industry, Nick Pitarra, The Manhattan Projects is a look at history through a darker, much stranger, lens.
