Death 0

The Good : Johnthan Hickman has struck gold with east of west!!! Dragotta art is very well done in this western Apocalypse . Plenty of action in this first issue and plenty of blood:) This book starts off with a different version of how the civil war ended! 8 Nations and plenty of conflict.Our main character is straight shooter and doesnt take no for answer! The bad : Nothing, a true badass western comic.Verdict : I will see you in hell if you don't pick this issue up! ...

Not for everyone, but a masterpiece for those who can wrap their head around it 0

Deciding to jump onto a new series I picked this one up. It is basically a mix of the futuristic apocalyptic genre and the western genre. The story is very difficult to describe as it has this really surreal atmosphere to the whole thing. Basically most of the human race was wiped out in the early 1900s and the factions of the Civil War still divide the country, along with various other factions. The lore is very detailed and engaging and in the present day we have beings from Hell hunting down ...

East of West #1 0

This is a great new series coming from the team that previously worked on FF over at Marvel (Jonathan Hickman, Nick Dragotta). If you read any of that then you know that their work is amazing and if you haven't then you are in for a treat. This is about three of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse going after the fourth. It also involves the President. Don't want to give too much away.The Writing 5/5:Hickman consistently delivers when it comes to comics and it is amazing how easily he can create an e...

The Apocalypse in the Tumbleweed 0

You might call me crazy, but Dragotta was one of my least favorite artists on Hickman's FF run, so I was just a tad hesitant going into East of West. But if you, like me, have doubts about Dragotta's artwork, it's ridiculously improved over what was on FF. I don't know what made the difference, but I'm absolutely in love with the visuals on this book, and good god does this series need the visuals to be gorgeous. I mean, Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Western? Yeah, you need the scenery to look stunni...

East of West: The World As It Is 1

(see original at I first read Hickman's work on the Avengers, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Then I struggled through his super-massive INFINITY event and it left a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe it was just too big for one writer to handle and that's where he failed. Hickman does great stuff with large events, but the INFINITY event was just too large, I think. East of West, however, was just right. It truly is a great comicb...
