    2.5 stars The Wicked and the Divine had this special something about it that kept me interested the entire time I was reading it. But once I finished, I was like...that's it? Even now, I'm not sure I read the same book that seems to have captured the hearts of most of my fri...

    Hello. My name is Maria and I have a problem?a comic buying problem. I?ve been going to Toronto Comicon as well as Fan Expo (an even bigger convention in Toronto), for about 4 years now and every year I can?t help but add more comics to my collection. I think a part of the re...

    Me esperaba ms teniendo una premisa tan interesante, pero la trama se va perdiendo fuerza segn avanza. Los personajes estn bien, sin ms, con personalidades interesantes y descubriendo los detalles justos para mantener el misterio. Sin embargo, es un misterio perecedero. El dibu...

    This will be a review for both issue 1 and the edition comprising issues 1 to 5 (yeah I'm lazy I know). I hardly ever read comics. Not that I dislike them, it's just that I don't usually like the artwork very much. Then I discovered The Wicked + The Divine. The artwork is amazing...

    This comic was really cool. What I really liked about it was how different it was. It stands apart from every other comic I have ever read. I loved the Gods and the premise but I just wish that in future volumes there will be more world-building, character backstories and/or character ...

    I enjoyed this, but I found it difficult to follow at times and it felt rather undeveloped. I definitely want to continue on with this series, but I can't deny that I wasn't very impressed with this first volume. ...

    3.5/5 stars Like most everyone else, I thought the art was beautiful and astounding and fantastic. However, the story was lacking. The general premise is really interesting, but I got confused as to what was actually happening most of the time. The book felt like it was more about int...

    It's a grab bag of different themes, as the Shallow Readers struggle to catch up. John Milton in Paradise Lost set the standard for many future Lucifer characters: rhetorically skilled ("Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven."), witty and dripping with charisma. Lucife...

    Oh my sweet goodness, this is one comic I feel I will get addicted to. I usually relatively like those, but this is incredibly beautiful and so well thought of. How can one resist the beauty that is uncovered in this first issue? I never read something quite like this. The plot ...

    Wow! This is a really unique and bizarre tale about Gods walking amongst us (seems to be a common literary theme lately). Because it is so odd, I was only just finally getting the hang of it as I reached the end of volume 1 - a compilation of the first five issues. If you like:...

    5 freaking stars for the artwork! Why? Because I can! As you can read from the blurb, these gods come back every 90 years to be on Earth for 2 years and then I guess they die or whatever. I don't understand all of those reasons or why they come back every 90 years but who cares....

    Well, hello, gorgeous cover! The Wicked and the Divine has a very interesting concept. It's like a rough spin on something we're are all completely familiar with: Pop Stars. They're everywhere, they are addicting, they are our idols. In this beautifully illustrated graphic novel...

    One word would be sufficient to describe this graphic novel, and that word would be absurd. Everything was all over the place, and the plot didn't do it justice. Most of the time I depend on the characters for enjoyment, but a bad plot is never forgivable. Not the worst I've read ever,...

    2.5 Stars Hmm?let?s see?ooh, this is a pretty intriguing high concept: every 90 years, 12 gods inhabit the bodies of mortals for a 2-year period, transforming those humans into gods so that they can live fast and go out in a blaze of glory. Oh, and it?s Gillen and McKelv...

    WICKED + DIVINE actually pissed me off the first time I read it, because it tries SO hard. Between the Shakespeare, reality TV, and teen fandom, it's almost too much. It's satire, I get it, but it lacks any subtlety and I don't find it all that funny. The thing about W+D is it'...

    Slick but shallow, self-congratulatory, sterile, ultimately pointless pop-stars-as-gods fantasy, as far as I can tell. I tried twice, but I just can't get into this one. 1.5 stars. ...

    Interesting story, but more for millennials than old farts like perhaps. Some of the ideas are good, but the jumps in the story are abrupt and the names of the gods don?t really make a lot of sense with respect to their stories (technically, Lucifer was an angel, not a god for one ex...

    OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. This graphic novel series is starting off just excellent. The art is polished and gorgeous? seriously, the character design alone deserves a medal. I?ve seen a lot of people saying the plot is confusing, and yes, it is at times. But you know...

    This graphic novel was a special snowflake. I think reading the Wicked and the Divine is like befriending that one weird outcast on the playground. It could go amazingly well and you could be BFFs. Or it could go badly and you'd have to awkwardly avoid each other for the rest of time. ...
