With East of West pressing further on into the “The Apocalypse: Year Two” the second part of this post apocalyptic series continuing onwards, the focus now shifts to a smaller scale: to the duo of Babylon and Balloon, rather than the intense multi-plotted structure experienced throughout the majority of the series.
East of West #18 continues “The Apocalypse: Year Two” as the issue follows Death’s son babble-on through his virtually enhanced version of America.
“THE PATH OF THE PROPHET” The last days of the world are upon us, and one man has become the living word of the apocalypse. This is the story of Ezra Orion and his unholy resurrection.
East of West #17 continues through the newly bloodied lands of post apocalyptic America, after the fall of Texas during issue#16 , the war-front turns its way to the PDR and The Confederacy.
“FALLOUT” In which we see how the horror of war has effected each and every nation — and which nations will crumble and which will rise. The Apocalypse: Year Two rumbles on in EAST OF WEST #17.
The issue begins with the fall of the Texan nation, a fast paced and brutal assault led by The Endless Nation as result of an assassination carried out under the orders of Texan governor, Bel Solomon
East of West presents a world on the knife-edge of destruction, so unstable that the merest flinch would plunge its point in and condemn humanity to slow, brutal end. At the forefront of this is Death the fourth horseman, roaming the land in search of his son Babylon, the would-be beast of the nigh-approaching apocalypse.
East of West can at times be difficult to describe in terms of belonging to a single genre, its neither a Western, Sci-Fi, Romance nor a fantasy tale. It is a genre-bender- a western with anime styled Sci-Fi settings with supernatural and emotionally conflicting tones sprinkled throughout.
