    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Feb 3, 2015

    When it comes to scale and imagination, I don’t think many books outclass East of West. Jonathan Hickman’s powerful mind is completely unfettered in this book. The results are a diverse cast of characters and cultures, alongside a grandiose and complex story. With issue #17, East of West continues to be a must-buy while elevating itself back to the top of my reading-pile. It became completely evident to me this week that this is Jonathan Hickman’s Game of Thrones and in terms of creativity, it just might be his masterpiece. Read Full Review

However, if you've been reading you know changes are on the wind. Diehard fans will love the emotional connections and having their fix after the month long break through January. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Tim Stacey Feb 6, 2015

    Despite compelling vignettes of different relationships within the enormous cast and winding plot of East of West, issue #17 offers too little progression to stand out. While the art and story telling remains consistent, it does not excel in this instance, leaving readers to hope the production schedule will allow for a more notable book next month.

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Feb 4, 2015

    So while I do think the incongruous slow pace / hurried presence of this issue does cause it to drag, it's still an integral piece to one of the best ongoing stories in the industry. Buy it, but don't dwell on it. Read Full Review
