“Often beautiful to witness and terrible to contemplate, Manifest Destiny promises a potent finale” – ComicBook.com

Today Skybound unveiled a first look at Manifest Destiny #48, the series finale of the highly acclaimed series from the superstar team of writer Chris Dingess, artist Matthew Roberts, colorist Owen Gieni, and letterer Pat Brosseau.   

In 1803, Lewis and Clark led the Corps of Discovery across America so their great nation could fulfill its destiny. Years have passed, and now a new monster has been birthed in the heart of their country.  

Since 2013, Chris Dingess (TV’s Doom Patrol, Marvel’s Agent Carter) and Matthew Roberts have created an alternate history of the United States, and now it’s time to bring Lewis and Clark’s expedition to its blood-soaked end.  

In addition to the main cover, Manifest Destiny #48 will also feature a Spawn variant cover by Roberts & Gieni as part of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of both Image Comics and Spawn. 

Manifest Destiny #48 will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, December 28. 

The full list of covers is below: 

  • MANIFEST DESTINY #48 CVR A by Roberts & Gieni (APR220217) 
  • MANIFEST DESTINY #48 CVR B SPAWN VARIANT by Roberts & Gieni (SEP228079) 

Select Praise for Manifest Destiny:

A desperate tale of escape by a desperate and disparate band of characters. Elements of American folklore abound in this tale of frontier exploration.”- Major Spoilers

A concept and execution that stands up against any of the dozens of dynamic creator-owned works running today” – Multiversity Comics  

That’s the fun of Manifest Destiny. You never know what’s lurking just ahead in this great journey of exploration and adventure. More often than not, it’s pure, unbridled terror with monsters the likes of which haven’t been seen on this continent in a few hundred years.” – Horror DNA
