Format: Broché
Il s'agit du premier tome d'une série indépendante de toute autre. Il contient les épisodes 1 à 5, initialement parus en 2013, écrits par Jonathan Hickman, dessinés et encrés par Nick Dragotta et mis en couleurs par Frank Martin junior. Ce tome a été classé premier des meilleures ventes de recueils de comics aux États-Unis en août 2013, le mois de sa parution.

Tout commence par une séquence de 6 pages au cours de laquelle 3 individus reviennent à la vie dans une nouvelle incarnation, constatant que le quatrième n'est pas présent et promettant une apocalypse de grande ampleur. Après un intertitre, le lecteur découvre en 3 pages une Histoire divergente à partir de 1862, et la rédaction d'un deuxième livre de l'Apocalypse, d'une portée religieuse aussi universelle que le premier inclus dans le Nouveau Testament. L'histoire se déroule en 2064. Un homme à la peau blanche entre dans un bar. Il est tout de blanc vêtu dans une tenue de pistolero, il se fait appeler Death et est accompagné par 2 individus Crow (une femme à la peau noire comme l'ébène uniquement vêtue d'un pagne) et Wolf (une sorte de grand indien albinos). Cet homme vient interroger Hunter le barman. Ce dernier lui livre une liste de commanditaires de son assassinat. La vengeance peut commencer, sur fond d'annonce de l'apocalypse, d'union des 7 grandes nations, d'amour contrarié...

La première séquence ne fournit guère d'informations au lecteur, si ce n'est d'installer le thème de la prédestination, les 3 individus lisant les augures pour voir un futur déjà écrit.

Hickman's most creative world yet... 24 septembre 2013
Par J. A Magill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
What is it like in Jonathan Hickman's head? From what appears on his pages, we can only assume it to be a creative tempest. Here is a writer who thinks big thoughts with a capital BIG, who brings together ideas that can charitably be described as disparate. When everything clicks, the result is nothing short of brilliant. Consider, for example, his tragically stalled "S.H.I.E.L.D." series. In it he brought together Archimedes, Newton, Jabir ibn Hayyan, Nostradamus, and Zhang Heng and Tesla (to name just a few) from our "real" world and mixed them with Nathaniel Richard and Howard Stark (the fathers, respectively, of Mr. Fantastic and Iron Man) to synthesize one of Marvel's most interesting comics in years. Even when Hickman falls short, as in the "Manhattan Project" (in which the atomic bomb is the least interesting creation of world's great minds, here reimagined as drunks, space aliens, lunatics etc), one cannot but be impressed. Now with "East of West," Hickman has introduced yet another world, one totally new and staggering in its scope.

A fantastical fantasy masquerading as an alternative history, "East of West" takes place in a future (2064) dystopian North America divided in seven separate states (nominally Union, Confederate, Native American, Texan, Chinese, etc). Twenty-Sixty-Four could be 3064 or 20,064 for all it would matter. This is a world awash in high technology, mysticism and mutants. The cultural flavor varies but we spend most of our time in a futuristic old West (think Butch and Sundance riding robot horses) and eventually the Chinese empire (ruled by Emperor Mao V).

As the book opens, a nameless lone white figure rises from the earth. Then we see him in cowboy regalia on a killing spree. Shortly after, three children (horsemen of the Apocalypse) rise from the same place and we come to understand that the white cowboy is Death and here is for vengeance (though it takes us a while to understand for what). As usual Hickman serves up plenty of metaphor and visual humor. Here artist Nick Dragotta work stands out as just amazing. While I've seen his stuff before, I don't recall ever being so impressed. Possibly Hickman's work more than others requires just this sort of fine artistic match to bring his stories to life (as Waver did so well in SHIELD).

Lots of reviewers have reasonably complained that this series can be confusing. I suspect this is triply so if you read it in issue format. Indeed, I can't recall the last comic that seems to ill-suited to being served in such short chapters (Vaugn's "Saga" comes to mind as a close second, though for all its oddness, that is still a straight forward Romeo/Juliet story). No, this is a series meant for a longer form. Reading the five issues included in this volume, most of the initial questions are answered in ways that intrigue and made me want more. While the world at first appeared vast enough to provoke agoraphobia, Hickman's virtuosity left me wholly confident that he knows where we're going and it's a trip I don't want to miss.

Good art but story failed to capture my attention 11 février 2014
Par James Pool - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is solid artwork for a comic book/graphic novel, but the story just doesn't motivate me to follow it past the first collection (issues 1 to 5). The author(s) get props for not babying the reader with a step by step explanation of the four horsemen or long back stories, instead letting the reader fill on the gaps. I'm just left wondering how this is any different from a variety of other "the world is in peril and we're going to follow the anti-hero" storylines.

Great Steampunk Western 5 octobre 2013
Par Travis Starnes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
When I was sent this trade for review I was very excited because I have never read a Western comic. All the titles I read are superheroes, gods, devils, angels, sci-fi and magic. So I was a little bit bemused when I opened this comic to three adolescents being `birthed' from inside a magic circle. Fortunately only a few pages in it became apparent that I had the wrong impression all the time as this is an almost steam punk style western set in an equivalent but different modern day. This is the beauty of blind reviews as I have no preconceived ideas of what the comic will be about and therefore I can give a truly unbiased opinion.

I have to hand it to the writer, normally reading speech bubbles with `accents' written in gets really old really quickly, however there is just the right amount of inflection to really make me hear that accent, without making it hard to read. I would love to be able to name the accent, but being from Old Blighty I would probably just embarrass myself. However if it comes through strongly with me, I expect anyone who is very used to hearing that accent would read it even more clearly than I do.

It is very hard to review a trade without giving away some spoilers. I have discovered that with individual issues you tend to be able to go up to about page 7 or 8 without spoiling the comic as up to that point was already spoiled by the teasers or the cover. With a trade such as this which evolves and grows throughout, never quite giving you all the information you need to understand the story it is hard to give any form of plot without ruining half the book. At its core this story breaks down to the idea of the four Horsemen, given bodies, in a world slightly in the future of ours where slightly different events took place than did on our world. The United States is not merely the USA, it is the entire world, ruled over by seven individuals. At some point they conspired to separate Death from the other horsemen and now those rejuvenated children seek their former partner to bring final apocalypse to the world.

There is some wonderful borrowed iconography in this book. The Black Tower is clearly reminiscent of Star Wars and the moment where Palpatine's shuttle docks with the Death Star. The White Tower, while looking like a massive trigger button, also has a very Fifth Element/Star Wars feel about it with the rows of flying cars around it. I am certain if my knowledge of Western films extended beyond brief moments of my mother watching them on Saturday afternoons then I would see them in the moments around the campfires. It is a really clever use of homage that does not make the comic feel too much of a copy of other ideas, but at the same time draws upon our knowledge of them to remove the necessity to explain things further.

Mixed feelings about this one 7 mars 2014
Par Ryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Good:

Gorgeous art - the characters and the world look fantastic.
Interesting world concept - the alternate history here is really interestingly developed.
Cool looking characters - well drawn and with a strong "badass" vibe.

Bad:

Very low stakes. The main character is basically a god and it's unclear if anything can hurt him, so scenes in which he's up against a huge army seem flat and pointless. Even his sidekicks seem basically immortal and indestructible.
Kind of silly seeming mysticism. This may still come together later, but the union between biblical prophecy and technology in the book is not (for me) so far a successful one. I'm hoping that at some point the book "picks a side" and gets a little more locked in to what the main character is, what the other horsemen are, etc., etc. In this volume it just seems fuzzy.

Original ideas but the execution isn't fully compelling 19 février 2014
Par N. S. Spears - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I liked a lot of the concepts in East of West, but I think the book itself was confused about the tone it wanted to convey and so I wasn't fully convinced myself. It doesn't quite achieve the mythic viewpoint one would expect from a book where the Four Horsemen are literal beings and Death has fallen in love and defected, and it also doesn't achieve a character-centered drama very effectively.

I wasn't angry I bought it, but I won't be picking up the next volume either.
