MANHATTAN PROJECTS #2

IMAGE COMICS
(W) Jonathan Hickman (A) Nick Pitarra, Cris Peter
"ROCKET MAN"
In this issue, we learn about the secret role that the super-scientists of THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS played in the fall of Germany during WWII. It's the hidden history of Werner Von Braun, the rocket god of Deutschland and the only guy before 1950 to have a super-cool robot arm.
One of the most anticipated new series of the year continues THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #2: ROCKET MAN!
