I didn't get it. At All.
I would have given it one star, but everyone else seems to have loved it.
So, I think it might just been the kind of story that either went over my head, because it has some sort of Loooook Deeeeper Into Your Miiiiiind style of storytelling. Or (option 2) maybe I just don't have good taste?
But, whatever the reason, I didn't enjoy Hickman's story.
The gist of is that it's a twist on all of the people & events surrounding the Manhattan Project. In case you don't know what the Manhattan Project was, I'll give you the quickie version of what went down.
So, Hickman re-imagines what went on behind the scenes during this time & comes up with a bizarro version of the events.
And when I say bizarro? I mean it.
Ok, I don't want to spoil anything for those of you who still haven't read this, but Einstein mowing people down with a machine gun is nowhere near the oddest thing about this sucker.
Aliens, cosmonauts, talking dogs, serial killers who eat and absorb the souls/knowledge their victims, a Nazi scientist with robot arms, monks who can hold open portals to anywhere with their life-force, crazed AI that used to be a president of the United States, an insane current president who takes Masonic rituals a bit too far, and a Mexican luchador & Egyptian pharaoh who are part of an ancient underground group that controls the world.
That all seems pretty cool, amirite?!
Well, it didn't work for me. After the first few issues, this bad boy had run so far off the rails that I wasn't enjoying many of the above mentioned cool parts. It wasn't confusing in a I-Can't-Follow-What's-Happening kind of way, it was confusing in a Why-Am-I-Trying-To-Follow-This kind of way. It was just bizarre! There were several moments that would have made me GASP! if I had given a shit. What I mean is, random stuff loony stuff happened, but I didn't care about any of the characters enough to have feelings about their fates. Sorry, it's hard for me to explain it any better without spoiling stuff.
I almost want to see where Hickman is going with this, but that would mean I'd have to read more volumes, and that probably ain't gonna happen.
Thank you, Mike for gifting me with this one! It's not your fault I don't know how to read things right...

Read information about the authorIt’s no small thing to die and be born again.
After a certain amount of time you get tired of wasting talent. Of being part of a fraudulent profession — or actually being a fraud. And, most importantly, not living the life you are capable of having.
I remember the first night I went out with my wife. It was raining, she was beautiful… it was a normal, ordinary, intentionally uneventful, date. But at some point during that evening I had, I don’t know what you call it, a vision, a moment where time collapsed in on itself… regardless, I knew that I’d marry her. And so I did.
Because sometimes everything in the universe briefly aligns to show you how things should be — the total commitment to change that follows means all the things you think it might: honesty, amputation, reinvention and renaissance. Jonathan Hickman was born in South Carolina in the year 1972.
He was reborn in March of 2006.
