    Comic Booked - Julien Loeper Mar 18, 2014

    Im genuinely excited to see where Hickman goes next, if only to see how much bigger it can get. This is an indie book where I am invested in the characters and am in it for the long run, and you should be too. Give East of West #10 a try, or youll be sorry. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Mar 12, 2014

    Hickman and Dragotta lay it on thick this month -- between the hefty doses of philosophy (who's right? what's righteous?) and some seriously killer visuals (monsters and murderers and shapeshifting, oh my), this isn't an issue to just flip through casually. Pay attention. Drink in the weird, wild world. Watch it take turn after turn. Then go back and read the first nine issues (or wait a couple of weeks for another fantastic trade), because this is a big-picture book that just happens to thrill with the details. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Lenny Wojt Mar 11, 2014

    An abundance of personality and subtle plot twists make East of West #10 a must read. Fans of the series will enjoy the break from the "big picture" and new readers will get sucked in by the dynamic personality on display here. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Mar 12, 2014

    I want to say this issue feels like it's getting back on the main road of the East of West narrative, but I'm not sure there is one. Instead, Hickman is showing the creation of a story as it happens, by drawing in all of its little mercurial pools into what is becoming one torrential stream of insane and quite gorgeous death.

    Comics Bulletin - Justin Giampaoli Mar 18, 2014

    This issue maybe works a little more straightforward than many of the singles, in that it's focused pretty tightly on a couple vignettes, with father-son dynamics, Death's "deal," and his subsequent search. I liked the Sea of Bones as a spiritual and physical no man's land, and it's always a treat to see wolf and his female companion doing their animorph bit. I'm starting to pay more attention to the color-coding, like the de-saturated colors in the flashbacks, and how that shapes the mood. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Geo N Mar 14, 2014

    This is my first review of East Of West and I plan on writing a more in-depth analysis on all subsequent issues. Please check back here on Graphic Policy after each issues release for more on this great comic book. I will do my best to dissect all the information we get and what it means in the grander scheme of things so we can better understand what is going on in this magnificent open world. See you next issue. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Mar 14, 2014

    This is the most confidently told comic on the stands, and it knows exactly what it is each and every month. What it is happens to be badass, and I am alright with that. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Mar 12, 2014

    Admittedly, the ending of this issue felt somewhat confusing, at least at first. However, brief moments of this are to be expected in a book like East of West. Overall, this was one of the finest issues in the whole series up to this point. This latest installment really had everything from terrific story development, interesting character interactions, exciting action, and the usual dose of horror and mysterious intrigue.

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Mar 11, 2014

    I understand that the setting here is meant as an allegory for Hickman's bizarre obsession with the destructive nature of humanity, and a borderline nihilistic view on the inevitability of destruction (which we've seen repeated ad nausea in New Avengers), but it feels like somewhere along the way he's become more interested in the setting than the plot. I just wish he'd give in and make that the focus. I don't recommendEast of West #10 as a jumping-on point for new readers, but if you're working your way through the series, this is a better chapter of time marking before the next cool look at one of the states, so I certainly recommend it in that respect.
