MANIFEST DESTINY—Here there be monsters…
Posted on April 17, 2014 by Kat Salazar
The sixth issue of Chris Dingess and Matthew Roberts’ critically acclaimed Skybound series MANIFEST DESTINY—for which orders keep escalating despite constant sell-outs of every issue—sold out quickly, and will go into its 2nd printing. The journey is just beginning...
Praise for MANIFEST DESTINY:
“Historical fiction can be a gamble in comics… By keeping it weird and focusing on their characters, Dingess and Roberts make a great case for how well it can work.”
—Marykate Jasper, Comic Book Resources
“Salvation lies west, and Manifest Destiny is proof—taking a smart spin on otherwise barren narrative territory, Chris Dingess, Matthew Roberts and Owen Gieni have produced an opening issue that will pique your interest and get you invested in our heroes. This is the kind of trailblazing you won't want to miss.”
—David Pepose, Newsarama
“Dingess and Roberts have done a terrific job here, establishing the ugly side as well as the wonder of this expedition to the West. Manifest Destiny is looking to be one revelatory journey.”
—Michelle White, Multiversity Comics
“Manifest Destiny #1 promises to be some really solid storytelling, focusing on a time when the world was still a mystery to those who thought themselves above it, and a world which too often valued the pioneer spirit above basic human decency.”
—Andy Hunsaker, Crave Online
“It is way too early to start making best comics of the year lists, but we can safely put Manifest Destiny on the contenders list.”
—Cody Ferrell, Comic Book Therapy
