East of West Jonathan Hickman

So our pick of the week, seems to be everyone’s pick of the week.images

Why is this the pick of the week? It is a new Image book. It is written by fan favorite Jonathan Hickman (Manhattan Projects.) There has not been a lot of press on this book, but it did make the cover of previews.

 

There is a down side. Hickman stated in a recent interview the print run of this one would be 3x his largest Image book. That book was Manhattan Projects which had a print run of 18,000 books. That would place this book at roughly 54,000 copies if you take what he said literally.

 

Still, Saga was promoted more, and had a print run of 37,000 books. People still say “I wish I had gotten more copies of Saga.”

 

I, myself plan on picking up a couple of copies and holding a few in reserve.

One thought on “East of West Jonathan Hickman”

  1. I may like East of West, because I’m an avid reader of western novels. You may think they are boredom at its purest form, but I ensure you that, generally speaking, they have a very intriguing plot. For example, “Night Passage” by Norman A. Fox, “Night of the Gunmen” by Steven C. Lawrence and “The Hard Men” by Theodore V. Olsen definitely are among the most thrilling novels I’ve ever read. But, if you ever decide to read a western novel, the ideal starting point would be “From Where the Sun Now Stands” by Will Henry. It is one of my favorite novels, along with “The Power of the Dog” by Don Winslow.
    Another Image series I do suggest you to try is Witchblade. It faced a sort of reboot from issue # 151, and it’s been pure awesomeness each month since then.
