“Nothing cuts through the quiet of night like screams of panic and pain.”
Stranded on the river, Lewis & Clark’s crew discover their place in America’s food chain…where man is no longer its greatest predator…

I admit it! I was late to the party when it come to this comic book. I picked up the first trade the week it came out because of a single reference and a rare moment of having some extra spending cash, but I’m so very glad that I picked up Manifest Destiny, and I haven’t missed a single issue since.

While the main argument against putting Image on the same level as these corporate giants was the fact that both DC and Marvel sell quite a bit more product every month, and I concede that this is a valid argument, there is simply no way that the quality and diversity of product being published by Image precludes the publisher’s inclusion as one of the gems on the Graphic Literature Publishing Triple Crown. And isn’t quality and diversity truly what matter? One recent example of the quality and diversity running amok over at Image is Manifest Destiny by Chris Dingess and Matthew Roberts. The alternate history story makes for a wonderfully written and drawn comic book, highlighting the best of what Image Comics has to offer.
