I spent maybe 15 minutes staring at the blog screen thinking of how I could describe The Wicked + The Divine #1. How I could make sense of young immortal gods who don’t actually live forever. Gods who don’t have any actual powers or that are believed to have powers. Powers that could be nothing more than parlor tricks or the ability to inflict massive amounts of euphoria and ecstasy.
And then there’s Amaterasu, the one on stage with eyes like the rising son and a voice that can induce an orgasm. The Divine. Or maybe Luci who with a snap of her fingers can make almost anything possible. The Wicked.
The Wicked + The Divine #1 is perfectly crafted by Kieron Gillen, superbly sketched by Jamie McKelvie, and brilliantly plastered with color by Matthew Wilson. It has to say something about a book when I’m left with almost nothing to comment sarcastically on. I was just left at the end wanting more, wanting to see more, wanting to learn more. So here’s to more, more please.
