      Try the new CGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      CGC has launched a new and improved CGC Journals! Available on CGCcomics.com, the new CGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new CGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the CGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old CGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the CGC website. Old CGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new CGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new CGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new CGC Journals or go to the new CGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!  

        Click Add Journal Entry to add a post to your journal

        Commenting on another user's Journal is easy. After selecting a journal to read, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the field where you may enter your comments and see the comments others have posted.

I bought this today and it was the only comic I bought. I was drawn to the subject because I am an ex history teacher. I dont honestly know what to make of it yet. I enjoyed the historical aspect and loved the fact that the project is much more then just the atomic bomb. I am definetly onboard for issue 2, but man what a wild few of Oppenheimer.

Have you ever read anything by Garth Ennis?

Now his works are disturbing, this not so much. (shrug)

Ennis is disturbing like Howard Stern on meth ... MP is disturbing the same way Steven King is disturbing. I agree that the Boys is way, way further out there than anything else I've read. I can't get over how good MP was ... I have high expectations for future issues and I really look forward to reading his portrayal of Einstein.

I managed to pick up the last copy my LCS had.

Gotta say I enjoyed it and I plan on picking up at least the next 6 issues just to see where it goes.

Haven't read it yet, but Nick Pitarra was signing last night at Austin Books (I think he's a local guy). He had the original art for I think the first 3 issues and there was some great stuff in there. He was very nice and was doing head sketches on the covers for people who wanted them. Very personable guy and it was neat to hear stories of how it's going to go with Hickman and this book and particular. He said this would be an ongoing title, so hopefully it's good for the long haul. And I wish I had inquired about availability of the OA. Probably more than I wanted to spend, but should've asked.

 

One thing he mentioned was a new guy named Aaron Kuder (http://aaronkuder.daportfolio.com/) who has the same look of being heavily influenced by Darrow and Quitely. His stuff looks even more detailed than Pitarra's, but not quite as maniacal as Darrow (as if). He said he's got a few things published from smaller houses, with a fill-in issue coming out soon from DC (Legion Lost #7, IIRC) and then he's going to be on a regular book TBA. Nick said Kuder is their go-to for a fill-ijn artist on MP if they need one, and if he's still available. It all looks good.

Image announced there will be a 2nd and 3rd printing of issue 1.

 

THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS the newest Image Comics series by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra also has a first issue that is receiving a third printing after orders for its second printing surpassed the print run. A story in the print and online versions of USA Today and rave reviews accompanied the series debut on March 7.

 

“The Manhattan Projects is off to a tremendous start, one of the big concept author’s strongest, most inventive opening chapters,” wrote Paul Montgomery in his review at iFanboy.

 

THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS creates an alternate reality where the real-life project to develop the atomic bomb is just a front to hide far more bizarre government programs. The creative team of Hickman and Pitarra previously collaborated on THE RED WING, also published by Image Comics.

 

THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #1′s second printing will be on sale on April 4, with the third printing (FEB128156) following on April 18. THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #2 will be in stores on April 11.
