The Wicked + the Divine Volume 1: The Faust Act (Wicked & the Divine Tp #1) (Paperback)
I will read anything created by the team of Kieron Gillen and Jamie Mckelvie but thier series "The Wicked & The Divine" is by far the most interesting story they have created so far. It's a brilliant commentary on society's obsession with fame with ancient gods as pop stars. The cast is diverse, the art work is gorgeous and the story is fascinating. The series is getting ready to come to an end and fans and new readers should take this opportunity to read the story from the beginning with Vol. 1: The Faust Act!— From STAFF PICKS
"solid storytelling and clean, gorgeous artwork will keep readers engrossed and eager for more." - Publishers Weekly (Starred) "Gillen's penchant for fast, sharp dialogue and McKelvie and Wilson's razor-lined, intensely colored visuals keep things popping up to the cliffhanger ending." - Booklist "the story is beautifully drawn and populated with characters of color, diverse gender, and sexual identities, and you have my full undivided attention." -- Kirkus Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critically thermonuclear floor-fillers Young Avengers and Phonogram reunite to start a new, ongoing, superhero fantasy with a beautiful, oversized issue. Welcome to The Wicked + The Divine, where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you're immortal, doesn't mean you're going to live forever.
