Manifest Destiny #1

We all know the story of Lewis and Clarke. They traveled through the western United States, establishing contact with different Native American groups and cataloging all manner of flora and fauna. At least that's what we thought. Manifest Destiny #1 reveals the truth. The actual purpose of their expedition was to clear the land of monsters in anticipation of American settlement.

 The writing of Chris Dingess, the art of Matthew Roberts, and the fabulous coloring of Owen Gieni play beautifully off of each other resulting in a comic that captures the wonder Lewis and Clarke must have felt exploring an unknown landscape. I truly enjoyed this comic and am eagerly anticipating the next installment.
