TNTM Trade of The Week: East of West Volume 3

JONATHAN HICKMAN @JHickman
WRITER
NICK DRAGOTTA @NickDragotta
ARTIST

East of West is one of those series that is an epic of biblical proportions, literally and figuratively. Helmed by the superstar writer, Jonathan Hickman, you ought to know its going to be epic. Rising legend, Nick Dragotta, seals the deal of epicness with his art. Unlike the second volume I feel like this one stands on its own pretty well. 
What I mean by that is volume 3 did not seem to require too much info from the previous volumes. I've read the previous volume but it had been a year or two by this point and time. I won't deny that at times I wish I had recently read the other two trades but for the most part that wasn't the case. This book was mostly about the House of Mao proclaiming war. The House of Mao calls a meeting with all the other countries to proclaim this. Immediately you start seeing how this affects different people in power in other countries. They meet at a place of neutral and peaceful ground called The Wall. Treachery, violence, and death ensues despite it all. Elsewhere, Death has just lost his most viable chance for finding his son as the four horsemen confront the child. This story is twisted, at every angle. There is no hope, just lesser evils. If you're looking for a hopeful story you won't find it here. It's as bleak as they come.
The same cannot be said about the art. If the art was as bleak as the story this series would probably fail. Luckily Nick Dragotta fills each page and panel with plenty of color and life no matter how dark, dire, and death filled the story is. Make no mistake, the art isn't contrasting to the story. It's as dark, evil, vile, disturbing, ugly, graphic, odd, creepy, grotesque, disgusting, and frightening as it needs to be. At the same time it can be beautiful, elegant, charming, warm, humorous, and intriguing when appropriate as well. Each character is drawn with a lot of personality and their own unique voice. You can literally almost hear their tone, accent, volume, delivery. I've never been so impressed and interested in blood, guts, and dead bodies. It's just so colorful, detailed, and mesmerizing. 
As mesmerizing as the art is though I have to say that you can tell this is but a small chink in a long chain of stories, volumes, and issues. I'm so glad I don't read this in issues because the story is so slow, long, and drawn out at times. Heck even as I read it in trade, I imagine this story would be best in a large collection, like a compendium or something like that. I'm not trying to sell this book short but you can tell that Hickman & Dragotta are in this for the long haul. Though this graphic novel does a solid job of standing on its own it's just a small slice of a big pie. I give this book a BUY. If you don't mind the slowness of it all it might be higher up there for you. I do love a good build but this is just a little too drawn out for me.
Verdict: BUY

TNTM Trade of The Week: Black Science Volume 1 How To Fall Forever

Rick Remender @Remender
writer
Matteo Scalera @ScaleraMatteo
artist

The Ambassador and I actually read and reviewed the first four issues of this comic book series on our Comicast(comic book podcast). We picked it up primarily on the basis that it was the phenomenal writer of Fear Agent, Uncanny X-Force, and Low, Rick Remember. That's usually a safe bet. Then with Italian artist, Matteo Scalera, of Secret Avengers and Indestructible Hulk, it seemed like a sure thing. Even though the art is well done I couldn't get completely into this book.
When I read it in issues I couldn't get into it because of the characters but when I reread it in trade that wasn't the problem. The first time around I didn't like it because I didn't care about or sympathize with any of the characters. That changed rereading it in graphic novel form though. It was easier to see and understand the arc of the characters as I read it all the way through. Nonetheless, I still couldn't get completely invested in the characters and story.
The first characters you see are Grant McCay and his wife running and hiding from some humanoid frog creatures. It's not long at all before he loses his wife. All the while he is racing to meet back up with his kids and fellow crew of dimension hopping scientists before the dimension hopping machine makes its next jump. Call me cold and callous but I had no reason to care about this man, his wife, kids, crew, or his drive to get back to them. As the story unfolds this feeling is made even more justified as you find out that Grant is kind of a piece of shit. He's cheating on his wife with a fellow coworker and takes his kids dimension hopping like a dumbass. There's other characters that are interesting but their time is short lived so it's hard to get invested in them. There's an interesting twist towards the end but it just felt like too little too late by that point. Even the most interesting plot point was short lived in which the crew was stuck in a world where technologically advanced American Natives were battling Germans. The books calls it "some kind of inverse Manifest Destiny." The story is wrought with betrayal, envy, drama, lust, honor, glory, and valor. None of this makes up for the lack of substance though. I'm all for action but if there's no build to it there's not much of a point to it. You can't care about a person's death without knowing who they were first. That's what Remender failed to do in this first volume.
The blame is not all on him though. It is also the job of the artist to help tell the story not just the dialogue and narrative. As impressive as Matteo Scalera's work is, he only has a few comic book story arcs under his belt. Whereas Remender is somewhat of a seasoned comic book writer so I have to believe he has to know better. Scalera has a very dark, gritty, edgy, somewhat messy, sketchy, and line heavy art style. At times it is very colorful and vibrant but for the most part the color palette is a dark one. There is a lot of expression in the faces but it seems like they are reused quite a bit. Matteo has a wondrous imagination as he creates a multitude of worlds made of odd, peculiar, and interesting creatures. Still, I could not help but feel this was a poor man's Fear Agent.
On both parts, writing and art, this book seemed like a cheap knock off of Remender's own work, Fear Agent. A lost time traveler that dies at the end with a similar art style just felt too much alike even if that's where the comparison ends. I'd rather read Fear Agent over this any day. This book has a lot of potential to be great but this volume didn't do it for me therefore I'm not going to take the time, money, and effort that it takes to find out. I feel awful saying this about a Remender book but it's a Skim for me.
Verdict: Skim
