But East Of West, the Image Comics series from Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta, has been one of the more successful and celebrated new series of 2013. East Of West features an alternate history tale of a technologically advanced American frontier, due to a Celestial event at the end of the Civil War. Now the country is teetering on the edge of disaster, as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse attempt to kill the President of the United States. Hickman writes a tale that gives ample opportunity to Dragotta and colorist Frank Martin to create everything from robotic steeds to the image of the four horsemen clawing their way through dirt, bone and metal.
