More praise for EAST OF WEST:

“Jonathan Hickman is a master world builder.” —Bloody Disgusting

“Hickman starts another high-concept series, this one set in a futuristic Old West and starring none other than the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse… Happily, Dragotta’s bloody, gangly art is a great fit—from the eerie white figure of Death and the impish manifestations of Conquest, War, and Famine to the dustpunk marriage of frontier imagery and futuristic technology. Though it’s still in its early throes, this looks to be a seriously entertaining, darkly epic apocalypse in the making.” —Booklist

“Hickman has fused together just about every major genre you can think of to create his most ambitious story to date, and given the skill of the craftsmanship, it will definitely be one to keep an eye on… frequent FF collaborator Nick Dragotta brings East of West to life in surreal fashion... The reborn ‘Three’ Horsemen of the Apocalypse are as vicious as they are deceiving.” —IGN
