Graphic Novel Review: The Wicked and The Divine Vol 1

I purchased The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 1, The Faust Act on Amazon The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 1 at the beginning of the summer. I desperately wanted to get into reading comics again and I heard great things about   WicDiv (such a cool nickname) and decided to dive in head first by buying the Volume 1, which comprises of comics 1-5. I'm happy I dived in...Amazing!!

The quality of Kieron Gillen's writings connects you to all the characters and you become intertwined in the world that he's created. I will not give away any spoilers, but Wiki has a very compact simple explanation:
 "The narrative follows a young teenage girl, Laura, as she interacts with the Pantheon. The Pantheon is a group of twelve people who discover that they are reincarnated deities. Their discovery grants them fame and supernatural powers, with the stipulation that they will die within two years. This is part of a cycle that repeats every ninety years, known as the Recurrence"

Besides the quality of the writing the art by Jamie McKelvie is top notch, look at Luci (Lucifer for short)

The basics that everyone relates to are in WicDiv, life, death...longing for acceptance are some of the topics you will relate to in this fantasy driven comic.  Definitely add this to your comic collection!
