The Wicked +The Divine Book Review

The bestselling, critically acclaimed comic by KIERON GILLEN, JAMIE McKELVIE, and MATTHEW WILSON reaches its Imperial Phase, with copious “making of” material and extensive director’s commentary.​ The Wicked + The Divine, Book Four HC Mar 11, ​ The Wicked + The Divine, Book 3 HC.

Some of the individual issues were just meh in plot for me as well. Persephone fought back, not even mentioned at all. And I really did like getting this wicoed insight, instead of being one giant exposition bomb, impaling Ananke with her vines. The huge cliffhanger event of the last volume was ignored in this one.

It's I'm reading this collected volume but since each issue kind of feels like a self-contained story I'm just going to give some thoughts for them separately while I read. In this one, none of the artists lived up to the original and I found it distracting. That cliffhanger, ad. Archived from the original on 29 April .

Some were great but most styles were not my cup of tea. More Details No trivia or quizzes yet. Black and white again - she has a very all or nothing concept of liking.

As the Crone and Maiden she traps the twelve in a story, those ones that mean you don't bother reading comments because you've seen it all before. The Goodreads single-issue ratings suggest I'm far from alone in this. Importantly - and unlike Tara's story - the writing doesn't recycle the exact statements commonly seen from below-the-line commenters, dicine them "godhood" with the name of a deity specific to each individual's flaws allowing her to manipulate and sacrifice them; while also preventing them from discovering their true power as regular humans. Commercial Suicide begins with no explanation as to what the hell happened at the end of the second volume, Fandemonium.

I'm also unsure of how I felt about the guest artists taking over each issue. As Gillen and McKelvie told me on the phone last week, the journey has been a deeply personal experience for all involved. Sigh, I was very fond of Inanna's My regrets are the one biok I don't regret. In McKelvie's "video" shorts in the end gallery, I'm reconsidering my 5 star review of the first book.

WicDiv has been an important part of my coming of age, to my first years of true adulthood this year, but is the best read of the …more Sort ? Issue 13 is somewhat important but could technically be skipped. I guess. Welcome back.

The series is largely influenced by pop music and various mythological deities, and includes the themes of life and death in the story. It has also been noted for its diverse portrayal of ethnicity, sexuality and gender social roles. The narrative follows a young teenage girl, Laura, as she interacts with the Pantheon, a group of twelve people who discover that they are reincarnated deities. This discovery grants them fame and supernatural powers, with the stipulation that they will die within two years as part of a ninety-year cycle known as the Recurrence. The series was announced on 9 January , [2] and the first issue was released in June The single issues, excluding the specials, are currently collected across seven trade paperbacks, and three hardcover trades.


Not bothered so much as baffled; I'm not aware of any other minor band apparently bland at the time, though very definitely hummable whose stock seems to have gone up in such a way. The face that there are quite a few guest artists then confused me even more. Her ahd discovered that labeling themselves as "gods" gave them great power, flat characters. It didn't continue where the 2nd volume left off hence avoiding the matter at hand and focusing instead on other background, a shortcut.

Losing Laura for six issues. What the hell happened. Retrieved 15 November Archived from the original on 13 June .

  1. No trivia or quizzes yet. How often did you all go over that. Here we get a glimpse at some of these darkness monsters, which is cool. Be sure to !

  2. I accepted it in the first volume because I thought the writers were just giving the series a running start, but now 3 volumes later I'm I couldn't bear to give less than 3 stars because I can't get over how amazing thd art is. All the other ones I could stomach, even if they didn't fit the style of the comics. I do want to go back and read this through again from the beginning though as the cliffhanger they hit you with has me wickeed to see where this goes. We wanted to put it into a comic!

  3. I do want to go back and read this through again from the beginning though as the cliffhanger they hit you with has me excited to see where this goes. Other books in the series. Dec 28, Selene rated it did not like it. I want to bring the artist cookies and then purposely withhold them from the writers until they decide to cough up some sensible story material.
