Review: The Wicked and The Divine #1

tumblr_n7dna8VHTb1qzquzno1_500The Wicked and the Divine is a new series by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie, the creators of Phonogram. It’s a tale of gods incarnate liking a rockstar, pop culture filled life by only for 2 years. 

Things we liked

  • the art
  • the wide variety of gods
  • mythology

Things we didn’t like

  • how all the covers and variant covers make it hard to figure out which issue # it is
  • the righteous female journalist; not really sure she’s needed

Random things that caught our attention (for better or worse)

  • the back cover sometimes seemed more interesting than the front cover

Overall, we really liked it. We were able to chat more about god origins as one League lady has super knowledge. We also discussed it feels a little like Neil Gaiman’s American Gods novel.
