Jonathan Hickman, Nick Dragotta and Frank Martin Jr's ongoing Image Comics series, East Of West #16, has been on a bit of a break. Well, it's back in December, and to give those orders a little fillip, a series of variant covers by the artistic team have been designed, seven, that all fit together. The comic will now be one of the few on sale on New Year's Eve.

Image Comics is pleased to announce that we are offering an exclusive set of covers celebrating the return of EAST OF WEST in December. Artist and co-creator Nick Dragotta and colorist Frank Martin Jr. have created a stunning seven-cover montage featuring nearly every series character featured to date.
"We are extremely excited with how East of West: Year Two is shaping up," said co-creator and writer Jonathan Hickman. "Sometime when Nick and I were talking about where the story was going and all the unbelievable stuff we have planned, Nick latched onto the idea of doing a big piece that kind of reflected on what we'd already done and tease some of the things coming up. And, good lord, has he produced something jaw-dropping."
Each cover represents one of the territories that make up the American Apocalypse and will be available on 12/31.
