I came across a reference to this graphic novel a few weeks ago. The premise fascinated me, so I checked it out from my local library.

Manifest Destiny is based on the premise that Thomas Jefferson dispatched Lewis & Clark not only to explore the Louisiana Territory, but to kill the “monsters” living there to make the land safe for settlers.

As good as the concept sounds, when I actually read the book I found it wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. My library only carries the first out of four volumes, so I won’t have the opportunity to be drawn in by reading further into the series.

I gave Manifest Destiny 3-stars on Goodreads. It was an okay read, but not superior.
