    East of West is not a book you should be reading. It is a book you need to be reading, especially now that its shit is inching ever closer to its fan. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Apr 9, 2014

    While there isn't as much action in this issue, it still feels like we've only begun to scratch the surface of what's going on, and I know for sure I'm strapped in for the long run. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Geo N Apr 10, 2014

    East of West #11 begins the third story arc of what is possibly the best and most creative series on the market today. The story is so rich and the characters so deep that you can't help but get lost in the plot and immerse yourself in the crisp and precise drawings of Dragotta. It's hard to believe we are only on issue #11 when it feels as though Hickman has expanded this world to boundaries beyond imagination. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Julien Loeper Apr 12, 2014

    As a whole, East of West #11 could have been a lot more exciting than it actually was. But then again, we did just get an issue of balls to the wall action and advancement prior to this. We needed a breather supposedly, and as far as breathers go, this was pretty good. One can only hope that the next issue takes this roundtable somewhere big, because any other alternative would seem like disappointment. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 10, 2014

    East of West sometimes reads like Jonathan Hickman's answer to Game of Thrones, what with the copious lineup of characters and the constant back-stabbery and power plays. And while the sheer visual and conceptual imagination at work in this series is usually enough to keep things afloat even when the story begins to trudge, it does seem as if the book is gaining momentum again Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Apr 10, 2014

    EAST OF WEST unfolds quite like a chess match, with each issue involving strategic moves and losses on every side, building towards a dramatic final encounter. Fresh off the second trade, this issue is both a concise recap of the locations and statuses of key Chosen and a lining-up-of-moves for the brutal action that's sure to ensue next month or the month after. EAST OF WEST is no miniseries -- it's playing a longer game, and pacing very deliberately -- and this month's installment is a solid beginning to the third volume. Read Full Review

    I wrote a speculative fiction story about Smart Rifles and Video Games and it got published here. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Apr 9, 2014

    Ok, so we got another issue that sort of slowed things back down and held back a bit regarding overall plot development. Its a shame when we dont get any scenes featuring Death, Crow, and Wolf, but there are many angles to cover in this series. The characters are all very well-written and the artwork is fantastic. It looks like things could really heat up next month! Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Apr 9, 2014

    East of West have been running for almost a year, and for me still struggles to find its narrative footing. I keep holding out hope that the series will slip into a more defined kind of storytelling, but instead it seems content carrying on with the current status quo, as it stands I can hardly recommend the book in the monthly format, because the story is hard to follow when spread out over several months at a time. With the help of the collected trades the story is sure to read with a little more coherence and solve many of the pacing issues Ive found in my month-to-month reading. Read Full Review
