Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In the second volume of this weird western series, the three Horsemen of the Apocalypse continue to manipulate the Chosen, the American leaders sworn to the message, as they plot to bring about the end of the world. Death, the betrayed Horseman, rides out on a quest to locate his kidnapped son, but a new character, the Ranger, attempts to derail both groups’ plans. Like the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone, Hickman focuses on atmosphere and environment, with slow pacing and sudden quick-on-the-draw action, adding a touch of Lovecraftian horror and epic sci-fi for good measure. Although some of the backstory and dense mythology of the series is better explained in this volume, very little is revealed about character motives, making the plot confounding at times. We Are All One is a challenging read, and those new to the series will need to get their hands on the first installment. Still, this is a very promising series with a compelling enough premise that readers will want to stick around until the final shots are fired. --Peter Blenski

East of West is a WONDERFUL story. It takes a somewhat familiar idea and turns it on it's side for something totally unique.
I never know where this book is gonna go or what twists it's taking, and I love that.

Jonathan Hickman’s EAST OF WEST VOL.1 got things off to a decent start with our main protagonist, Death, as he wondered through an alternate dystopian future setting up for the End of Days running from his fellow Horseman and the Chosen because he fell in love with a woman named Xiao and they had a son who is hidden somewhere. It may not be anything for Hickman in his growing résumé, but with artist Nick Dragotta adding his pencils to the series; it gives off a decent sci-fi/western vibe to make it just different enough from the pack out there. Now we have volume 2 where the plot slows down a bit from Death and we get some backgrounds on The Chosen and a new character.

EAST OF WEST VOL.2: WE ARE ALL ONE collects issues #6-10. With Death now knowing he has a son, the Grim Reaper is out on the trail to find him, even if it means going to the oldest prison on the planet and seeing the Oracle. The Three Horsemen and The Chosen now have to decide what to do next about stopping Death and furthering the coming of the Apocalypse, but first things first, each Chosen has to return to their respected nations and review their own countries dilemmas.

While EAST OF WEST is really is a character/world building series, volume 2 elaborates on this further than volume 1, with little to pushing the plot forward. Every issue we mostly get origins and backgrounds to each of the Chosen and his/her’s countries history in different ways. The first aspect of this is Bel, who although isn’t an origin directly on him, but his origin sets in motion a new character named the Ranger(s), a Judge Dredd-type character that you understand their sympathetic and justice-fueled history.

This series is set in a futuristic America where the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride the Earth. They are fractured and working towards different goals, using the people they encounter to reach those goals by any means necessary.

I love the art in this series. The work that Dragotta and Martin do to bring the characters to life is fantastic. They are vibrant and believable, even at the most horrific points of the story.

Death is on a journey to find his son, whom he believed to be long dead. The other Horsemen are trying to fulfill their purpose of bringing about the end of the world. A prophecy known as the Message guides the Horsemen and their pawns.

The creators reveal a bit more about the characters in this volume. I feel like the first volume focused on Death, while this one balances it out a bit and introduces some new characters at the same time. The plot unfolds pretty slowly, but it is by no means boring. It reads quite quickly, and there is enough time devoted to each storyline throughout. A great continuation to the series.

"East of West" suffers from a confusing story line and stentorian language -- every other scene seems to be written in apocalyptic dialogue, even when it is hard to tell exactly what is going on. Hickman's alternate timeline, with a set of competing nations on the North American continent, is an interesting one, but there is too much going on here -- Death, his son, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the political conflicts of the world -- to make for a coherent tale.

If I'd noticed who wrote this I might not have started reading the series (I know, everyone else things The Manhattan Projects is all kind of amazing, but really it's boring and predictable). Fortunately, I didn't notice because this is one of the better current comics out there.

This volume, collecting issues 6-10, continues the terrific saga Hickman began in the first volume. The apocalyptic western starring Death on his mounted metal steed takes a bit of a "Roland and the Dark Tower" flavor for this arc, as the horseman and his allies, Wolf and Crow, venture far for answers to their questions. This includes a visit to a creepy oracle in a most unlikely place and a battle with a shaman of unspeakable power. As always, the story is outstanding, the writing is eloquent, and the artwork is mesmerizing. Reading this book just made me fired up and ready for more!

I loved the first one, and I loved this one just as much. I said it before and I'll say it again I just really dig this world that Jonathan has created. Man, is he good. What a duo he and Dragotta make. And that last panel!! Damn! I gotta know more about this Ranger turned bounty hunter.

Hickman's newest endeavor East of West delivers action, intrigue, exceptional artwork and of course all the mind blowing sci fi we've come to expect from this talented writer. Definitely worth the price of admission, looking forward to Vol 3.
