These characters are really growing on me. There‘s a lot to keep up with during this comic, but it‘s so intriguing and sucks me right in every time I pick a volume up.

This first volume has me intrigued enough to continue on. Death is attempting to stop the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse. Quite a role reversal! I‘ve heard great things about this series so I‘m finally getting to it!

TK421 I love this series! They get better, and more twisty with each volume. 8mo

1. Fish and chips and fried apple tarts. We served so many orders of these last weekend!
2. Finally sitting down after a long day of work, shopping, and butterfly wrangling.
3. East of West. It is the best comic that I have read since reading Saga. Do yourself a favor and read this series!
4. Ingredients for @cobwebmoth to make oatmeal raisin cookies.
5. Mexican! Asian! Italian! BBQ! Maybe all 4 at once! I'm so hungry now!

RavenLovelyReads Hi! We purchased tix for the Ohio Ren Fest for tomorrow- is there a bookstore at the fair or close by? My boys are stoked about the Barbarian Invasion! 11mo
TK421 @RavenLovelyReads there is a small bookstore at the festival. It is renaissance and Viking themed. Come on by the fish and chips booth and say hi! 😊 11mo
RavenLovelyReads I totally will stop and say hello! Plus- those fish and chips look amazing! 😋 11mo
TK421 @RavenLovelyReads We'll be at the booth from about 1pm to closing. I hope you have fun out there! The Swordsmen, the falconry show, and the Kamikaze Fireflies are my favorites, but there are lots of cool things to see there. They do have a real joust! 11mo

I started East of West on Hoopla today, and it is awesome! Some great alt history in the prologue leads right in to a bleak futuristic dystopian western masterpiece. In a future where the USA has been divided in to 7 nations, a clandestine society is trying to help bring on the apocalypse. Death, one of the four horsemen, is out for revenge before the end comes. Solid writing, good plot, great artwork, and all 8 volumes available on Hoopla!

I finished this one this morning, and while it took a bit for the story to come together, I ended up loving it. It's the best graphic novel I've read so far. My husband has all seven volumes, so #2 is already sitting on my lap ready to go. I can't wait to really dig into this series.

Amazing! I love the mash-up of the post-apocalyptic, sci-fi, steampunk, and Western genres. It feels like an epic story, almost Biblical. lf you enjoy Saga, you'll probably enjoy this series as well.

PrezBookster I don‘t even know what mochi is! Is it hard like a cookie? 2y
Jokila @PrezBookster no, they‘re soft and chewy rice cakes filled with a sweet paste filling. Most people know them as an ice cream type dessert but daifuku isn‘t frozen 2y

Realized I‘ve fallen behind on sharing my reading choices for the 2018 Eclectic Readers Mad Libs Reading Challenge. For a “Place Name,” I‘ve decided to go with the comic book series “East of West.” I plan to read all seven trades for this one. Looking forward to diving back into this bizarre series. #ERMadLibs #EastOfWest #graphicnovels #comicbooks #readingchallenge

Gunslinger Western + Fantasy Fable + Body Horror + Dystopian Sci-Fi = East of West, a hugely ambitious, violent, expansive alternative-America adrenaline rush not for the weak of heart.

My friend bought this for me on my birthday. I haven't read many graphic novels (okay, 2 🙈), but he swore I'd love it. Guess we're going to find out!

Bookzombie I like this series. There is a lot going on. I just picked up the fourth volume at the library today. 2y
CharissaWeaksAuthor @Bookzombie I'll be honest. I'm over halfway through and I'm like...what's happening? I think I'm just not used to the graphic novel format. But I feel like I'm missing important information. 2y
Bookzombie @CharissaWeaksAuthor In this case, it might be the story. There is a lot going on and I have felt lost at times. I still enjoy it and love some of the art. If you find you don't like this one maybe try Saga or Lumberjanes. 🙂 2y

Before tackling Un Lun Dun, I decided to cleanse my palette with a graphic novel. I've seen lots of buzz for East of West (mostly on Litsy), so I decided to try it. The open gave me serious doubts, heavy on exposition and disjointed. Things come come into focus quickly, though. When this story hits its stride, it doesn't slow. I will definitely be buying more of this series, most likely picking up the next volume(s) this weekend. #graphicnovel

BiblioNyan My boyfriend absolutely LOVED Un Lun Dun. It was the novel that got him hooked on China Mieville. 😃 2y
TsundokuAleax I actually had a conversation with a friend at how disjointed this would be to read if you were getting this as it comes out. There is so much story, that it is hard to keep straight if you are not reading it in large chunks. I borrowed year one from a friend and it looked intimidating but totally a good way to read it. 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk I feel like I have almost bought East of West many times. 2y

BillBlume @Bibli0.Nyan hoping I'll have a similar experience. 2y
BillBlume @TsundokuAleax, I had thought something along those lines as I read it last night. Can't imagine what people thought after reading the first issue by itself. 2y
BillBlume @TobeyTheScavengerMonk, I think it's worth the investment. Definitely enjoyed it and want more. 2y

#riotgrams Day 10: #comics
Has anyone read this comic? I got it randomly last summer. It was my adult summer reading freebie from the library.

Keyoung I've read it! It's a little obtuse for me. I usually like "weird west" stuff a lot but East of West just ended up being confusing. I read it on the recommendation of a friend who loves it though, so maybe it's just not for me. (edited) 3y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @diovival This is one I keep picking up and putting down in the store. Sounds up my alley but also sounds like something I'd buy two volumes of and then forget about. 3y
diovival @Keyoung @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Now I'm feeling less guilty for letting it sit unread on my shelf for so long. 3y
Marktwainbutstupid Johnathan Hickman is definitely an acquired taste. Lots of story, and he plays a long game. His Fantastic Four storyline took YEARS to wrap up, and it was a bit inaccessible. 3y

I've been sick the last couple of days, and that gave me time to read all six available volumes of this fascinating and gritty series. It's an AU America that is a little bit Wild West, little bit sci-fi, and a whole lot of the apocalypse. Fun times. I thought there were only six volumes, but I was wrong... and now I have to wait for more. Le sigh.

aeeklund So sorry you were sick! I read a stack of graphic novels when I was stuck on the couch last week, too. It's a good way to pass the time! 3y
aeeklund Also, hope you feel better! 3y
Dorianna Ugh. It's that time of year. I'm recovering from an illness myself. I hope you're feeling better. Comics are the perfect thing to read when sick. 3y

I wasn't sure I was going to like this one. I think I was expecting something more like Saga, which has numerous funny moments, but this one really doesn't (or I'm not seeing it). By the end of this volume, I was hooked and volume two is already on hold. 4⭐️

Imagine if a Dali made mechanical horses and sold one to death who looked like a cowboy, three other horseman, and the u.s is divided into seven feuding nations. The end is nigh and stuff just got real. This is a very compelling work of fiction and is still awesome multiple volumes down the road
