Well, between it being the 5th week in one of the rare 5-week shipping months (notoriously sparse for offerings), the final day of the calendar year, and the day before a holiday on top of that, it’s a very light week, but I still have two very good recommendations for you! First up is Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta’s East of West #16, the post-apocalyptic sci-fi series featuring an alt-history Civil War era confrontation that leads to a very compelling future timeline.

There’s also The Massive Volume 4: Sahara, the penultimate volume of the Dark Horse series, collecting issues 19-24 (including a confrontation with one of the series antagonists, Arkady), which also comes on the heels of final issue #30 last week. There’s just one collected edition remaining, and as usual, Volume 4 includes those gloriously inky John Paul Leon covers, with Brian Wood, Garry Brown, Danijel Zezelj, and Jordie Bellaire on interiors.
