East of West Ushers in Sixth Arc


Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta are still plugging away at East of West. Their hard-work is about to pay off with the sixth arc getting kicked off this April. In East of West #25, the conclusion to East of West: Year Two kicks off. Up to this point it's been an impressive cavalcade of characters let loose their pawns in a cunning game of deception. Loyalties shifted, alliances were betrayed, old friends were murdered—all in service of, or to thwart, the Apocalypse.

“We’ve reached that wonderful part in the story where everything starts to go very, very wrong for everyone involved,” said Hickman. “And in a book that’s basically about the end of the world, I think we can promise only the most dramatic things for our characters.”

Dragotta added: “And visually, these are the really big scenes we’ve been building towards since the beginning of EAST of WEST. Not only do all of my favorite characters return, but the way in which they do so has been some of the most fun I’ve had drawing. Ever!”

East of West #25 Cover A by Dragotta (Diamond code: FEB160522) hits stores Wednesday, April 20th. East of West #25 Cover B by Hickman (Diamond code: FEB160523) will also be available Wednesday, April 20th. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, March 28th. Full press release below.
