Manhattan Projects #14 doesn’t necessarily change the landscape of the medium on its own, but it certainly carries this sensibility from earlier issues. While we have become much more familiar with this absurd tale that initially felt like nothing else out there, it remains consistently well-developed and well-paced. Every issue adds something new and exciting to the story which is what all writers and other artists should aspire to. The story of this strange team keeps getting bigger with each passing month and there is no telling just how far the creative team might take it!
Grade: B
More plot, less fun. I’ve asked for more plot in this series before. Maybe I should take back that sentiment.
This week Nick Pitarra and Jonathan Hickman take the powder keg that is The Manhattan Projects and give it a nice shake up. The boys land in the sites of their most dangers enemy so far: The Oppenheimer.

“The Manhattan Projects” is one of the most ingenious, beautiful, and intriguing books being published and there’s a reason we refuse to shut up about it. And that’s why it’s so hard to write a review about “The Manhattan Projects.” When a book’s that good, all you can do is point at it and scream “Buy!”

Issue #14 feels like a bit of a transitional issue, setting everyone in a precarious situation that promises to be resolved (for better or worse) later, but it's a necessary build towards #15, which closes out the volume.
