‘Manifest Destiny’ Celebrates 10 Years With New Deluxe Hardcover Collection From Skybound

by Olly MacNamee

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Skybound’s Manifest Destiny Book 1 gets the deluxe hardcover treatment this November. That’s 500+ pages collectingthe first 24 issues of the series from the creative team of creator/writer Chris Dingess (Marvel’s Agent Carter, TV’s Doom Patrol), artist Matthew Roberts (Battle Pope), colourist Owen Gieni (Rat Queens), and letterer Pat Brosseau (Creepshow).

In 1804, Captain Meriwether Lewis and Captain William Clark set out on an expedition to explore the unchartered American frontier so their great nation could fulfill its destiny. This is the untold story of what they discovered lurking in the wilds.

Here’s Dingess on this milestone and the hardcover:

“After spending a decade on this book with the stellar crew of Matt, Owen, and Pat, I can honestly say it was the journey of a lifetime. It was an honor to work with Robert, David, Sean, and the team at Skybound and a real deal, super-serious dream come true to have them present Manifest Destiny in this Hardcover Edition. I hope readers have as tremendous an adventure on the trail as we had blazing it.” 

Roberts added:

“I love this book and working with this team for the past decade has been amazing. As an artist, being presented with such confident and compelling scripts from Chris and then being given the freedom to take risks and follow impulses as I draw is a dream. Then to know that I’ve got Owen, one of the most dazzling colorists in the game, coming in behind me? And THEN we have Pat on letters to tie it all together? Crazy. I love what we all were able to pull off. It’s a great story and I’m thrilled to see it all together and get the big fancy hardcover treatment.” 

Manifest Destiny Book 1 Deluxe HC will be available online and in comic book stores on Wednesday, November 8th, 2023, and everywhere books are sold on Tuesday, November 15th, 2023.
