East of West is an amazing graphic novel series that artfully melds the science fiction and western genres. It’s a great fix if you need something to help hold you over between now and season 2. Craig along with a new voice to the podcast, Wil Heflin, review volume one of the series. They discuss the comic’s background (2:08), Death as a protagonist (9:53), their general impressions (13:22), the artwork (19:55), their favorite moments (26:07), the importance of Image Comics (30:14), and a nod to the small, independent comic shop (38:39).
If you have a hankerin’ for more of the science-fiction western genre, pick up a copy of East of West, Vol. 1. Created by writer Jonathan Hickman and illustrator Nick Dragotta, East of West is an incredible graphic novel series and as soon as you’re finished with the first one, you’ll want to read the rest.
Craig Carter and Wil Heflin, a new voice on the podcast, give you a preview.
