East of West – Book 7


The seventh, and most recent, installment of the Jonathan Hickman / Nick Dragotta Image comic details the third year of the apocalypse in this end-of-civilization graphic novel series. I applaud the series for lasting this long, keeping the storyline interesting and the plot moving.

In this chapter, certain story arcs are (finally!) completed, some which have their origins in the very first book. War, Conquest and Famine make another dramatic appearance, and President Archibald Chamberlain proves slippery and as cunning as ever. At this point, I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve cast each of these characters into movie roles of famous actors.

While some story arcs are closing, and it’s nice to see the book progressing, there are still certain issues that I wish were addressed a little bit more.
