Manifest Destiny #3 Review

by @mikebiyad on Jan 8, 2014

Once again we have another jaw dropping issue of Manifest Destiny

The Good

If you've read my past reviews for the first two issues of Manifest Destiny then you'd know how much praise I give this series. If you thought "half-man, half-buffalo minotaurs" wasn't enough, well now there's some type of plant infecting people and turning them into zombies. This series constantly keeps you on the edge of your seat, and its only on its third issue.

With Lewis and Clark, and their group of explorers arriving at La Charette, they were hoping to find their contact, who was a young native american girl, however instead they found a small group of survivors left in the village, after the flora infection had taken over. Unable to leave the village with the minotaurs outside waiting to attack them, they are stuck there, and unable to find their contact as well.

The writing in this book is great, with no on-the-nose dialogue, and some humor thrown into the mix. The art in this book is also once again great, showing great detail to this uncharted territory, as well as great detail to the characters and the monsters they are put up against. I really like how the story is also told through their journal as well as the dialogue and images during the events of what is actually happening.

The Not So Good

I do think that the people infected by this plant could have posed a bit more of a threat, and seeing one of the explorers turn would have been cool too, however there is still another issue coming where this might be a threat.

The Bottom Line

Overall this book adds on to the great story that is being told here. This is definitely turning out to be a great book and I'm always excited when I see it on my list. I'm giving Manifest Destiny #3 a 4.8/9

4.8 / 5
