Comic Book Review
Is East of West the next big Image title?
Among a slew of new Image titles, we get East of West from the creative team of Johnathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta. The question remains, will East of West be the next Image title to follow series such as Saga and The Walking Dead and gain colossal popularity? It seems to have the potential.
-
A picture is painted of an alternate world which begins following the Civil War. A meteor strike changes the course of history forever, resulting in the United States being divided into several different regions. In the year 2064, our story shifts to the rebirth of three of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse (Conquest, War, and Famine.) They soon discover that the fourth (Death) is not among them. The three decided that he has gone rogue and that they must bring about his demise. The reminder of the story follows Death and his companions as they wreak havoc and distraction, ending in Death’s assassination of the President.
Albeit slightly complicated and wordy, Hickman does a masterful job laying out his narrative. Due to an intriguing story complemented perfectly by the artwork of Nick Dragotta, East of West has all of the makings of “the next big thing.”
SCORE: 8.5/10

The Ghost Inside - You Get What You Give. This album is tremendous. I’ll start by saying that I’m usually not a fan of heavy metalcore because I feel like musically it can get pretty repetitive. I didn’t find this to be an issue at all on YGWYG. From the breakdowns, to the scattered clean vocal sections, and the amazing lyrics; I can honestly say there isn’t anything about this album that I don’t like. It’s totally perfect. Top five favorite songs: 1. Dark Horse 2. White Light 3. The Great Unknown 4. Outlive 5. Engine 45. Also, the little bit of their show that I saw at Warped tour was pretty tight.
