East of West #5 is sold out at the distributor level. This does not mean that you cannot buy it in stores, it means once they are gone your retailer cannot order more 1st prints. This book is going back for a reprint. East of West has been hot but hasn’t generated a lot of buzz on the secondary market. I think that is going to change. The book had a print run of 41,000 copies.
From Image’s press release
“Adding to the excitement, the latest installment of the worldwide phenomenon The Walking Dead #113 by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard has also sold out, as well as Image’s newest hit series, East of West #5 from Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta. These sell-outs mark a banner week in a year full of milestones and accomplishments for each of these series and creator-owned comics as a whole.”
“East of West continues to escalate in both tension and scale; there are no compromises in this book” – Jen Aprahamian, ComicVine
