    It should go without saying that East of West is one of the best comics being produced today. The sprawling epic about the dystopian slip into the apocalypse weaves intricate, layered plots with deft characterization, showing ideology and factions warring against autonomy and selfishness.

    Multiversity Comics - Alan Buxbaum May 7, 2018

    While this team is one of the best you'll find on shelves today, the issue is somewhat slow due to plot development. Aside from that, this issue is sure to keep you engaged through a flawless marriage of both art and writing. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 2, 2018

    East of West #37 starts out very slowly and can be confusing for readers who havent been re-reading past issues to remember everything, but once it hits its stride, it presents a tight story of a man getting back on the road of revenge. In the hands of lesser creators, this installment would have started in a nosedive and never recovered, but Hickman and Dragotta pull it out of that dive with a combination of deft writing and detailed art.

    I've read "East of West" since issue #1, and it's continuing quality is still remarkable. That said, there have been 37 issues over that last five years, so sometimes certain elements of the plot escape me from issue to issue. But this one was a slow burner, a suspenseful prelude to a whole lot of bloodshed. Anyone who reads this series regularly knows that certain issues are going to emphasize mood, or the emotion and feel of a pivotal moment over a lot of action. And that makes certain action issues (issue 22 is an almost wordless action-dominated story that is one of the best examples of sequential art out there) all the more special. The most underrated guy in the industry has to be Nick Dragotta, who delivers amazing, amazing art time more
