* AlternateHistory: WorldWarII ended when a (presumed) Soviet superweapon destroyed Berlin and ignited the Earth's atmosphere, devastating much of Europe; the Cold War continues into the 21st century; a manned mission to Mars happens in 1974, and attempts to colonize it are made by the 1980s; FasterThanLightTravel is possible in 1999 (though no-one entirely ''understands'' it).

Set in an AlternateHistory where the ColdWar never ended and humanity reached {{UsefulNotes/Mars}} by [[TheSeventies the 1970s]], ''Westward'' has a unique visual style, a wide cast of engaging characters, and a plot that takes its readers from dead alien worlds to mysterious spaceborne artefacts to a seemingly unremarkable Western town all without losing its impact, its sense of adventure, or its ability to keep everyone guessing and glued to the screen with every page.

* ColdWar: In ''Westward'''s timeline, it never ended. Initially it's just an interesting part of the background, but eventually the implications become quite important to the plot, and personally to some of the characters...

* Spin-Off: Westward's 3rd episode moved the focus away from the ship and its crew back to earth, where we get to follow the story of a teenage girl cooping with the death of her mother and a useless father. Eventually her adventures were continued in [[http://westwardcomic.com/arizona-introduction/ Arizona]]

* ArtEvolution: The [[http://westwardcomic.com/strips/0009/ earlier pages]] have a simpler and rougher appearance than [[http://westwardcomic.com/strips/0549/ later ones]], though [[http://westwardcomic.com/comic.php?itemid=6 many of them]] have a certain charm precisely because of that cleaner, simpler approach.
