Manifest Destiny #11 Review

By Anna Greenberg

Manifest Destiny #11

Writer: Chris Dingess
Artist: Matthew Roberts
Publisher: Image Comics
Release Date: October 15, 2014
Rating: 10 out of 10

Synopsis: “What do you plan on using as bait?”

Our Thoughts: This is a manifestly incredible issue. The crew is stranded, their boat snagged in a mass of sticky horror. There’s only one hope of escape, and that hope is forcing a horrific monster to pull their boat free.

Chris Dingess’ story is compelling, the dialogue is energetic, and the suspense might just kill you. This isn’t a quick read. There’s a lot of content per page, but the book never gets bogged down, and never feels slow. 

‘Terrifying pastels’ is not a commonly used phrase, but that’s exactly what Matthew Roberts manages to pull off with his art. The characters and scenery are heavily detailed, with each character and landmark possessing a unique style. The fearsome beasts of this brave new world are unique and well designed, and made even the writer of this review, a seasoned horror veteran, cringe. The fight scenes convey emotion and ferocity and are generally awesome.

Go fulfill your destiny and pick up this book.
