The Sun Sets on East of West with Issue #45

The long-running, science fiction/western crossover series East of West by Jonathan Hickman (House of X, Powers of X) and artist Nick Dragotta (Howtoons, Fantastic Four) will come to a show-stopping end with the final issue of the series, East of West #45, set to land in stores this December from Image Comics.

“In this business, it isn’t often that you get to end a project exactly the way you want to, and I think that’s what makes this one so special,” said Hickman. “We started East of West with a story we wanted to tell and we’ve had the incredible honor of having a bunch of fans make that story a reality. So, enjoy it. God knows we have."

The beloved dystopian series first launched as a monthly series from Image in March 2013 and explores a dystopian America, divided into seven nations, wherein the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are cast as heroes.

Dragotta added: “It all goes down in East of West #45, an extra-length, action-packed issue that has been one of my favorites to draw. Creatively with Jonathan, Frank, and Rus, East of West has been an incredible ride, and none of it would have been possible without you—the readers—and Image Comics. We did it, 45 issues... thank you and enjoy the end times.”

In East of West #45, the epic world-building, political intrigue, and character drama wrap up into a final showdown that will shock fans.

The East of West series will be collected into ten trade paperbacks and three deluxe hardcover editions total. East of West, Vol. 1-9 trade paperbacks are available now and East of West: Year One and East of West: Year Two deluxe hardcovers are available now.

East of West #45 will be available at your local comic shop on Wednesday, December 25. Stay tuned to PREVIEWSworld to find out when you can preorder a copy of this landmark issue!
