Staff Reviews


Wicked + Diving tackles ideas of idolatry, especially modern idolatry, in such a fascinating way. Old gods are reincarnated as pop stars, parallels between religious and cultural idolatry are explored, and we're reminded of how often culture treats the rich and famous like gods among men. You may recognize some homages to familiar faces - Hello David Bowie and Daft Punk. This series is phenomenal, unputdownable, and full of surprises and sensory overload in the best possible way. — From Amy's Picks

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.
