Another Image Comics sell out!

East of West #1, the new book from Jonathan Hickman (The Nightly News) and Nick Dragotta, has sold out on the day of its release. Image Comics sent out this press release, letting us know that a second print is on its way. So, get the first printing while you can!

EAST OF WEST #1, the premiere issue of the apocalyptic Western by Jonathan Hickman (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS) and Nick Dragotta, has sold out the same day as its release on March 27. It will receive a second printing (Diamond Comics code FEB138443), going on shelves in stores on April 24, the same day as EAST OF WEST #2.

The best-selling debut of Hickman-penned Image Comics series to date, EAST OF WEST #1 introduces readers to a world on the verge of collapse where incarnations of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse roam a sprawling landscape and all signs point to an inglorious end.

In contrast to the spiraling fate of humankind depicted in its pages, the beginning of EAST OF WEST has been a critical triumph:

“East of West is astonishing. Something that may reset the bar by which all other comics are tested.”
– Crave Online (10/10 review)

“Hickman accomplishes here what other writers might spend a whole series building up, which leaves the door wide open for this imaginative story to go east and west and then north and south, to boot.”
– IGN

“The series is still new, but I wonder whether it’s a glimpse at our nation’s sins made manifest. A bald depiction of the scarlet letter forever branded on America, not for adultery, but for human bondage and derision. Or maybe it’s just a cool, nihilistic revenge saga.”
–  iFanboy (Pick of the Week)

“…this is a comic that could just possibly blow your mind.”
– Comic Vine (5/5-star review)
