Staff Reviews


Hands down the most addictive comics series currently running. Every ninety years, a pantheon of twelve gods take human form, inspire humanity, are worshiped as the ultimate rock stars for two years, then die. But this time something is different. A complex, riveting pop culture fantasy-mystery with dynamic art and a fascinating, diverse cast of characters that continue to show unexpected depth as the series goes on. Edgy, intelligent, full of shocking twists and reversals, this is the grown up comics series you've been looking for.

— From Shualee's Reading List

Description


"solid storytelling and clean, gorgeous artwork will keep readers engrossed and eager for more." - Publishers Weekly (Starred)

"Gillen's penchant for fast, sharp dialogue and McKelvie and Wilson's razor-lined, intensely colored visuals keep things popping up to the cliffhanger ending." - Booklist

"the story is beautifully drawn and populated with characters of color, diverse gender, and sexual identities, and you have my full undivided attention." -- Kirkus

Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critically thermonuclear floor-fillers Young Avengers and Phonogram reunite to start a new, ongoing, superhero fantasy with a beautiful, oversized issue. Welcome to The Wicked + The Divine, where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you're immortal, doesn't mean you're going to live forever.
Collects The Wicked + The Divine #1-5.
