Jonathan Hickman's East of West #1 Sells Out

by Russ Burlingame

East of West #1, the premiere issue of the apocalyptic Western by Avengers writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Nick Dragotta, has sold out at the Diamond Comics Distributors level on the same day as its release, on Wednesday March 27.

It will receive a second printing (Diamond Comics code FEB138443), set to arrive in stores on April 24, the same day as the critically-acclaimed series's second issue.

The best-selling debut of a Hickman-written Image Comics series to date, East of West #1 introduces readers to a world on the verge of collapse where incarnations of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse roam a sprawling landscape and all signs point to an inglorious end.
