Select praise for EAST OF WEST:

“Like the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone, Hickman focuses on atmosphere and 
environment, with slow pacing and sudden quick-on-the-draw action, adding a touch of 
Lovecraftian horror and epic sci-fi for good measure... readers will want to stick around 
until the final shots are fired.” —Booklist

“Hickman’s comics, often befuddling on an issue-by-issue basis, are best enjoyed 
when they can be binge-read.” —The Ringer

East of West may be billed as a western, and while there are bonafide Indians and 
folks dressed in cowboy getup, you’ll also see mystical rituals and a landscape that 
wouldn’t be out of place in Blade Runner. Hickman has fused together just about every 
major genre you can think of to create his most ambitious story to date.” —IGN
