The United States is not united in this story. The South, Texas, the Native Americans, and the Chinese all have a territory and do not get along. In fact, all-out war festers due to political and religious conflict. To complicate matters, Death rides the plain, separated from his Horsemen because they want to destroy one of the only things he cares about - his son.
Each volume reveals new depths of story, and characters become more and more complex as the series progresses. Though there is a multitude of characters, each is given a moment to shine, and each is fascinating.
The artwork is surprisingly simple, yet always dynamic. Each character has a distinct body language and "look." Death, in particular, always jumps off the page. The action flows from panel to panel, yet their is also a nuance to the scenes. You'll find little details in the most unexpected places.
This is a must-read series.
I wasn't a huge fan of Vol. 3 until I learned how to read East of West. While Saga, Southern Bastards, and other Image titles have book-length arcs, East of West is best enjoyed issue by issue. Read one. Stop. Read another. That sort of thing. Hickman's writing is on point, but the highlight of the collection is Nick Dracotta's artwork, particularly in issue #16, which contains descriptions of the seven nations, along with a time line. Some might complain about the heavy written content, but well done, as in Lazarus issue #16 or this issue, it brings a lot to both the single issue and the collection. ****1/2
