- "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... readers will want to stick around until the final shots are fired." -Booklist

I never know where this book is gonna go or what twists it's taking, and I love that.
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.Read more ›
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.
"The old magic stays with you forever. If you have been marked, there is no erasing that stain."
