Staff Reviews


Every ninety years, 12 humans are granted the powers of a god and the fame of a pop star, but only for two years, and then they die. Lucifer is accused of murder, but she might be innocent. It's up to fangirl Laura Wilson and skeptical reporter Cassandra Igarashi to find out the truth. Mystery, romance, humor, great art, poor life choices, this series has it all. It's a wild ride from start to finish, and I couldn't put it down.

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.
