    Not sure where this is going but it's still early in the game and an interesting enough concept with the sci-fi western take on the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse theme, that I'm willing to ride it out for a while.

And I'm one of those readers that likes to know exactly what the hell is happening. I don't get off on deciphering what the author might mean. <--A lot of readers lovelovelove this kind of writing and there's nothing wrong with that. Ok, so this has a bit more of an introduction to some of the major players and their backstories. It's interesting stuff. There's a lot of cowboy weirdness and dystopian landscape mixed in with a bit of strange technology. Which makes for a cool look art-wise. Looking forward to volume 3.

    How is East of West going? Good . . . I think!?!? A few times I had no idea what was happening. A few pages later I was enthralled with the story. It is a wild ride between western lore and sci-fi mayhem. I think lots of people will really dig this series, as long as they are okay with losing touch with reality every so often. The art continues to be phenomenal. From soft Western landscapes to severe, technological, Geiger-esque cities; you will constantly be fighting with your grasp on what time How is East of West going?

From soft Western landscapes to severe, technological, Geiger-esque cities; you will constantly be fighting with your grasp on what time period this story is supposed to be in. Also, there are some particularly creepy creatures that were fun to see. All in all, a feast for the eyes! At the end of this volume I was even more interested in seeing what happens next than I was at the end of volume one. So, if you are thinking of trying this one, I suggest giving it a couple volumes. This is especially good advice if in the middle of it you find yourself completely lost. Just buckle down and push through – it will all make sense (maybe) in a few pages! At least it should keep you interested in the midst of your confusion. 🙂

    There was really great character development in this volume. At times the story is a bit confusing and takes some intense focus and thinking to sort out. But it's so worth it. There are a ton of threads going on at once, and the pacing is so well-timed, that by the time you get farther along something from earlier pops up to surprise you (even though you should be expecting it).

The political angle is awesome enough but having the story about a father wanting his son back is always interesting. On top of that we have the son's story which isn't what I expected and really good. The other 3 horsemen are pieces of shit but man oh man are they entertaining. This series could be one of the best in the end for me. A 4.5 out of 5.

The 7 States of the US and their alliance is falling apart, everyone turns on everyone. The Message is a crock of shit. The interesting part will be to see how they rip each other apart. We get some more background on the Texas people, this includes a BRUTALLY OBVIOUS ripoff of Judge Dredd. Like I'm serious, how is this not Copyri W.H.A.T. T.H.E. F.U.C.K. Pretty much sums it up.

Anyhoo...then there's a creature with no eyes in the bottom of the ocean, which opens because Death said so. Then the creature steal's Death's eye as payback. Then gives him no real info. I thought Death would be smarter than this. There's some more side story about the Kingdom of New Orleans, the United section, the Republic, and the Oracle type dude who's the head of the Message religion. Oh and the stupid 3 Horsemen of the Apocalypse kids are still doing stuff. WHERE THE FUCK IS THIS GOING? Or is this just proof that Hickman drops more acid than Grant Morrison? Seriously. I wonder. The colours sure are pretty. Especially when high. It wasn't boring. Take it with a grain of salt and a handful of pills... I think I liked Vol. 1 more. Get this review and more at:

    A decent follow up to the first volume that continues the “what the fuck is going on” plot line. This was a bit slow and plodding. I’m guessing that it’s probably building up to something more but it just didn’t grab me. This is a strange series and I’m pretty sure that it only gets stranger and more confusing as it goes along but it’s not too bad.

    This graphic novel is so weird, I like it. Much easier to follow than the first volume. The storylines changed without an easy transition, but I like knowing more about different characters that I didn't even remember from the first volume. It just looks promising, even if I always feel a bit lost. The artwork is great, it makes the blend of the fantasy elements with old west vibes alive and rich. I'm so glad I picked up volume 2.

This alternate-universe story of the end of times may be full of awe with its grandiose artwork worthy of reverence, rivaling Vaughan's Saga and Y: The Last Man. Unfortunately, East of West messes up with one rudimentary element in a what would have been an excellent material: character personality. Critically-acclaimed graphic novel runs like Aaron's Scalped, Gaiman's Sandman and Koike's Lone Wolf and Cub have characters having the most interesting personalities and unique voices. No matter how much you hate or love what they do, you'd instantly know that they are acting according to their persona. Now, East of West has all the interesting characters but somehow, Hickman fails to give his characters that required distinctness. For example, badass as he may be, Death doesn't have a unique voice. It felt that Death as the story's protagonist could be replaced by one of the three cringeworthingly lame Horsemen (I hate these guys!). That is the fundamental flaw in East of West: the set pieces and amazing plot paves the writer to create colorful characters but fails to do so. I mean John Freeman I may be very different from the other Chosen, but he is too shallow to be unique at the level of becoming interesting. Crow and Wolf are two more badasses in the story but they could have been replaced by two equally badass characters. A unique character voice made Sandman's endless and Narutos's Jinchurikis unforgettable. To be fair, plot advances in this second volume gets more steam than the previous one. The flashbacks and back stories are entertaining to read. Death's action sequences are way more satisfying in this volume than the previous one. On a more personal point of view, I hate "Oh yes, I know the future but not all of it, so figure it yourself" cliche. This plot advancement device has been used over and over whenever there is a prophecy involved. Could someone (aside from Alan Moore, because he masterfully wrote an omniscient Dr. Manhattan) write a story with an efficient Oracle, please? I'll keep on reading East of West.

    I really liked this installment of East of West. The art was on point just like in the last volume but the writing was amazing. There were a few really great lines. Also there was a lot more world-building we got to see some of the different nations which I liked. It was amazing and I can’t wait to continue on with this series. ~Spoilers~ “I swear is there no one that keeps a hold of their extremities these days? Yes, yes…I see now.

It was amazing and I can’t wait to continue on with this series. ~Spoilers~ “I swear is there no one that keeps a hold of their extremities these days? Yes, yes…I see now. You have two bloody hands, therefore a traitor must be among us…How could I have missed such definitive an undeniable logic?” Chamberlin is probably my favorite character. He’s so slick, quick witted, silver tongued and yet so evil. “Chaos, Bel. Best by the wind—your end…is nigh.” Mostly evil. “True as any true thing ever spoken, back then there was a saying: The only thing more corrupt than a politician was a judge. This of course had nothing to do with judges being weaker men and women…No, in fact, measure them closely, and you would clearly see that they were almost exactly the same. Both had long lost their souls. Both were totally corrupt. And both were always for sale. Judges were just cheaper.” The writing was good in the last one but this volume has really stepped up its game. There are some just really great quotes in here. So a bunch of lawmen kill judges and politicians for being corrupt. That’s…one way to do it. Of course it happens in Texas. They were the Rangers and they retired after killing all the judges and politicians. Now the leader is going after the Chosen. I love how evil the President of the Union is. Like I would be rioting too if I had Female-Senator Palpatine as a president. Death lost an eye…sucks. Aw and the Ranger just fucking killed the Native Chosen before Death could discover where his kid is. Son of a bitch.

    Again, this is more of a 3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4. I think one of the downsides to this volume is that there's a lot of setup (he's looking for his kid, she's looking for money, she's looking for an eyeball), and not much explaining about what has come before, but you know what? It's a good setup, in that I'm definitely going to get the next volume to see where the story goes. Will he find his kid? Will she get some money? Will she get an eyeball?

    I'm still kind of on the fence about this one. It's an interesting world, and the plot is thickening nicely. But it feels just a little overly bombastic. The characters all seem to be hamming it up, and the book just takes itself so seriously. Minor characters die in droves, and everybody seems to be scowling. It doesn't need jokes or rainbows or anything, but it just doesn't seem to actually possess the weight it's trying to throw around, if that makes any sense.

    This series is something that I heard about in a comics chatroom on the app Line. I never would have known about this if it weren't for that conversation. Nick Dragotta's art is just as excellent in this volume as it was in the first one. He perfectly blends Sci-Fi elements with the old west, Native American culture and clothing, Civil War era clothing, and apocalyptic horror. Crow continues to be my favorite character based on looks.

He perfectly blends Sci-Fi elements with the old west, Native American culture and clothing, Civil War era clothing, and apocalyptic horror. Crow continues to be my favorite character based on looks. It is not only the way she is drawn, but the way that colorist Frank Martin has chosen to color her. I also like Death, the female version of the red horseman shown in flashbacks, and the member of The Chosen that looks like a cross between Robert E. Lee and Colonel Sanders. The rt gets the same 5 star score that the first volume received. Jonathan Hickman's writing on the series continues to be strong. The overall messages that were present in volume one remain consistent here. There are a couple of newer characters focused on in this volume. The inclusion of them and parts of their back story slow the pace down a little. I still really enjoyed the story, but I don't think it quite measures up to volume one. The words spoken by the characters are on par with the first volume though. This is still fabulous, but a little slower than the beginning of the series because of some back story and not too much progress was made going forward. I expect the action and pace to ramp up in the final 2 volumes of this series, but the writing on this one gets 4 stars. That a 4.5 star total rating for the book. I think that this series would appeal to any fans of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. It should also appeal to fans of either dystopian futuristic Science-Fiction and apocalyptic horror stories. If you are a fan on all the above this book is a MUST READ.

We don't have all the pieces at the end of the first, and the second, at the end of this one I think we're STILL just getting to the real start of the story. I find, more and more, I have issues that aren't with the books themselves, but the way they're presented and published. I would love to see this as a thick, single volume. Or maybe broken into three parts or something. I find it odd that comics haven't figured out what Netflix knows, that people like to watch an entire season, or even an entire series, in very short order. We love it. And that's why Netflix-produced shows come out that way instead of weekly. Because then everyone watches the whole thing, not to mention that everyone's talking about the thing in a concentrated burst when it comes out. This comic would make great binge-reading. Having 4 volumes in front of me at the start is a much better experience than picking this one up 6 months after I read the first. That was insane. That would never work. Comics seem very tied to either a monthly or one-shot format without a lot of room in between. I'd love to see them put out in longer, binge-season form. I think that would kick ass, and it'd also allow for really complex stories to be told.

    It took me time to finish this one because I'd no motivation to read it. The story was easier to follow and understand than in the previous volume, but the amount of violence was too high for me. Luckily, I found Death's parts interesting and I enjoyed to learn why he's no more a part of the four. The art was still good, with a nice use of colors. I'm not sure I'll continue the series as I'm not curious about what will happen next. It took me time to finish this one because I'd no motivation to read it.
