    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 7, 2018

    East of West #36 is a masterclass in comic storytelling. There are few books on the market that can match it sheer scope and the audacity of its storytelling. Hickman and Dragotta are slowly unfurling an apocalyptic masterpiece that delivers the powerful moments and action such a thing needs while also finding way to connect emotionally with readers. Its complex and rewarding book that would be served better by a more regular publishing schedule or at a least recap page, but when it comes out, its one of the best books, bar none. Its a rare treat. Read Full Review

    What continues to set this series apart from other comics is the increasingly breathtaking talent of Nick Dragotta, further improved by Frank Martin's colors. Read Full Review

    Somehow, "East of West" is still an interesting and captivating read, even as I begin each issue a bit unsure of where the last one ended. The pacing of Hickman's series, slow, somewhat challenging, somehow works in a way that the actual chronology of the story seems less important than the overall progression of the great, major story. It provides an allowance for me being occasionally lost. A large part of this book's charm is the great work of Nick Dragotta, who provides another clinic in storytelling here. The bits we get with Death and Babylon (and Balloon) seem generous, and also build up the inevitable momentum of the series. Great title.
