4/5🥰. Enjoyable. Not quite to the level of Saga , but I need something to tide me over for a while
I‘m nearly done and this was quite a ride!
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!
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!
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.
I love this series and volume five didn‘t disappoint. I know I have said it before but the art is beautiful. The story is gripping and I need to pick up the other volumes that are available. I‘m also definitely going to have reread this series at some point. #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon
I probably won‘t get started until later today due to work but here is my physical #TBR for the #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon and I have a bunch on Hoopla too.
I‘m still going to work on my current reads and participate in #LitsyPartyofOne too.
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
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!
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
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.
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
