Official Press Release
The fourth issue of the Image Comics series EAST OF WEST, the apocalyptic western by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta, has sold out and will receive a second printing. It was originally released in stores on July 10. This sell-out marks the fourth in a row for EAST OF WEST, which is one of Image’s best-selling titles. The first issue, which was originally released in March 2013, is now on its fourth printing.
The second printing of EAST OF WEST #4 can be pre-ordered now (Diamond code JUN138041) and will be in stores on August 14, the same day as EAST OF WEST #5.
Four issues in, the series continues to earn rave reviews:
“It’s astonishing how much Hickman and Dragotta have been able to fit into just four issues — the world is bleak and scary, yet totally immersive, and the balance of violent action and tender emotional moments is carefully cultivated.”
“East of West has been a beautiful book and this issue is no different, with more of the great world-building, the interesting characters and the superb art. This is a stunning example of originality and creativity….”
“The issue is absolutely piping hot from start to finish and the rollicking action rivals the biggest summer blockbuster for scope and scale.”
