Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta's Image Comics title East of West is no longer in development at Amazon Prime Video. Hickman revealed the news Sunday during a Comic-Con International: San Diego panel, saying that after five drafts "it didn't work out."

"Hollywood's weird. I really didn't do comics for a couple years, and just wrote pilots and screenplays," Hickman said. "I wrote a bunch of stuff and sold a bunch of stuff, but you'll never see it."

East of West was optioned by Amazon in early 2018, along with Transhuman by Hickman and R.M. Ringuet. The deals were done through Robert Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment, who has a 'first look' deal with Amazon Prime Video.

The East of West comic book title is set to resume September 25 with issue #43.
