Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

  • "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

4.0 von 5 Sternen Justice and Mercy in a War-Torn Land 15. April 2014
Von Anarchy in the US - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Jonathan Hickman’s EAST OF WEST VOL.1 got things off to a decent start with our main protagonist, Death, as he wondered through an alternate dystopian future setting up for the End of Days running from his fellow Horseman and the Chosen because he fell in love with a woman named Xiao and they had a son who is hidden somewhere. It may not be anything for Hickman in his growing résumé, but with artist Nick Dragotta adding his pencils to the series; it gives off a decent sci-fi/western vibe to make it just different enough from the pack out there. Now we have volume 2 where the plot slows down a bit from Death and we get some backgrounds on The Chosen and a new character.

EAST OF WEST VOL.2: WE ARE ALL ONE collects issues #6-10. With Death now knowing he has a son, the Grim Reaper is out on the trail to find him, even if it means going to the oldest prison on the planet and seeing the Oracle. The Three Horsemen and The Chosen now have to decide what to do next about stopping Death and furthering the coming of the Apocalypse, but first things first, each Chosen has to return to their respected nations and review their own countries dilemmas.

While EAST OF WEST is really is a character/world building series, volume 2 elaborates on this further than volume 1, with little to pushing the plot forward. Every issue we mostly get origins and backgrounds to each of the Chosen and his/her’s countries history in different ways. The first aspect of this is Bel, who although isn’t an origin directly on him, but his origin sets in motion a new character named the Ranger(s), a Judge Dredd-type character that you understand their sympathetic and justice-fueled history. I just know the Ranger is going to mean something big down the road in a big way and looks to be an interesting addition to the tapestry Hickman is building.

The rest of the Chosen include The Message bringer Ezra Orion and how his deep devotion to The Message growing up, to Madame President’s cold and totalitarianism within her war-torn nation, and The Prince of The Kingdom who’s the most economical successful nation where he’s fighting it out against 12 brothers for the rightful heir (and ideology of wealth) of his father. This makes volume 2 a very deep and purposeful volume that helps explain more of the world Hickman and Dragotta have created.

And finally (I didn’t forget), the last of the Chosen Native shaman Cheveyo gets issue #10 that is equal parts an origin story of himself, but also of Death’s companions, Crow and Wolf. This issue is equal parts origin issue, as well as action-packed teaser of things to come that finally pushes some plot forward for the next volume.

Art is contributed by series regular Nick Dragotta is does great pencil work that is enough parts clean and sketchy, while adding an amalgamation of sci-fi and the old west. I loved his art from volume 1 and volume 2 doesn’t disappoint.

Now although I love this series and what Hickman is doing, I’m giving this a 4 star review for a few reasons. One is the slow nature of this volume might not be of some peoples likings. I think it moves at a great pace, but it still heavily focuses on building the characters and the world, as well as Death getting little panel time in this volume. And the other is some of the confusion of the series. Hickman has habits of doing meta-fiction and religion in his work where it can be confusion, and he does throw some of that in here. I don’t think it’s as bad as some of this other work, but it can be a little head scratching for readers. Especially The Message, which I’m not too sure how it works as time is going on since it appears to fluctuate from users. Is the Message a lie? Truth? Or something else entirely? I assume we’ll find out more down the road.

None the less, EAST OF WEST VOL.2: WE ARE ALL ONE is an exceptional second volume from Hickman and Dragotta that deepens the characters and the world itself greatly, even if the plot is moving slowly. It’s not a series to read in single form, so reading it in trade is a blessing. So if you enjoyed volume 1, get volume 2. If you were unsure of volume 1, try the second volume since it does give more meaning of what’s to come. This looks to be a long series that Hickman and Dragotta have plenty questions and mysteries to reveal in due time.

East of West is a WONDERFUL story. It takes a somewhat familiar idea and turns it on it's side for something totally unique.
I never know where this book is gonna go or what twists it's taking, and I love that.
5.0 von 5 Sternen We Are All One 30. Mai 2016
Von Phillip Schultz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This series is set in a futuristic America where the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride the Earth. They are fractured and working towards different goals, using the people they encounter to reach those goals by any means necessary.

I love the art in this series. The work that Dragotta and Martin do to bring the characters to life is fantastic. They are vibrant and believable, even at the most horrific points of the story.

Death is on a journey to find his son, whom he believed to be long dead. The other Horsemen are trying to fulfill their purpose of bringing about the end of the world. A prophecy known as the Message guides the Horsemen and their pawns.

The creators reveal a bit more about the characters in this volume. I feel like the first volume focused on Death, while this one balances it out a bit and introduces some new characters at the same time. The plot unfolds pretty slowly, but it is by no means boring. It reads quite quickly, and there is enough time devoted to each storyline throughout. A great continuation to the series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely a must read (after you're finished the current volume of Saga) 27. Juni 2015

If I'd noticed who wrote this I might not have started reading the series (I know, everyone else things The Manhattan Projects is all kind of amazing, but really it's boring and predictable). Fortunately, I didn't notice because this is one of the better current comics out there.
5.0 von 5 Sternen An original and enjoyable story 23. August 2016

A very awesome, sci-fi western, dystopia story. I enjoy every page and the artwork/writing is really consistent. This and Saga are my favorite reads.
