The execution, however, leaves much to be desired. Every 90 years or so, there is a Recurrence. Twelve gods incarnate themselves as humans and walk the earth. Their host bodies are generally teenagers, who are now endowed with amazing powers and the ability to perform miracles. They are here to inspire, and to push back the Darkness. They will be loved. They will be hated. And in two years, they will be dead. “Just because you’re immortal doesn’t mean you get to live forever.” Which twelve gods reincarnate is subject to change every ninety-year cycle. A host of pantheons from all cultures are represented. Sometimes, female deities incarnate in male bodies and vice versa, which mixed with the fact that they are deities and have an incredibly short lifespan makes for a lot of inner struggle and turmoil. The story takes place in the 2010s, during the first Recurrence since the invention of smart phones and the internet. Needless to say, social media and the fandom generation have fully embraced the incarnated gods, and worship them much as they worship pop stars and actors in reality. The gods have gigs, much as pop stars do, and tens of thousands of fans flock to these shows to experience the gods’ power. It’s at one of these gigs that we meet Laura, our main character and fangirl extraordinaire. But Laura becomes much more than just a fan to the gods; for more than one of them, she becomes a friend. There is a plot to the tale, though it’s weird and honestly kind of vague. The main purpose behind the comics (especially this first bind-up) appears to be twofold: to showcase exquisite artwork, and to raise the philosophical question of “is power and fame worth the cost of dying painfully young?” Both of these purposes are accomplished. However, the story was incredibly hard to follow, and too much happened off screen that we as readers are just expected to access unquestioningly. Someone told me that it was like watching a foreign film with no subtitles, and I think that’s an accurate comparison. While the art is indeed beautiful, and the premise is thought-provoking, I more than likely will not be continuing the series. I read (even graphic novels) for story, and if I’m not getting enough story to understand what the author is attempting to convey, even the loveliest of art can’t prevent the experience from feeling pointless to me. If I do pick up the next volume, it will be in hopes of seeing more amazing artwork, with far lower expectations regarding the story.

    I had heard of this series for a while and the covers to the comics had attracted me with the simplicity of the art style. The concept of Gods/Goddess showing up every 90 years as young people who are either hated or loved then in two years they are all dead seemed interesting. WAs expecting something along the lines of maybe DC Comics Vertigo or deeper. I was extremely disappointed. The story starts off with a bang with the mystery of who was killing who. Who killed one "individual god" ? What I had heard of this series for a while and the covers to the comics had attracted me with the simplicity of the art style.

Who killed one "individual god" ? What is the actual point of the gods/goddess and their "inspiring" of people? And i got the collected edition where it had all 11 issues bound in one book as usually stories like these read and make more sense read in one read. I was VERY wrong with this title. Total waste of money for me. I know the title is very popular with others, but there was no real point to any of the story lines or resolution. None of the questions to the story arcs are resolved and you are left with even more questions to the point where I lost interest by the last page with it's "shocking finale". Um….no. It was disappointing, but not shocking to this reader. And in my opinion stupid. I felt like the author had wasted my time by the end of the first book. I didn't expect ALL the mysteries to be answered or resolved, but at least one or two might have been nice after such a slow pace with little action and lots of dialogue and speeches. Frankly, every character was coming off as entitled, lazy and totally lost. No one knew what the point of their existence was really except the one who is "necessary" (what a title…and totally unnecessary). I think (I could be wrong about this) that the author intended for the story to be sort of a way to explain humans fascination with pop culture and the celebrities that people obsess over. The "gods/goddesses" are all "singers" (though you don't know what they are singing as the lead character, Laura, notes) but they make you feel things. That is it. Nothing else. The whole concept seemed so vague that it just sort of drags on with an occasional killing here or there to try to prove that there is a mystery or danger in this story to the characters. Frankly, most seem so bored or unhappy with their existence that there is no real sense of danger or desperation to resolve the deaths. I am surprised to find out how much i disliked the story after finishing it as i did like Mr. Gillen's Loki series well enough. This one just bored me. The art was decent and effective and the hardcover edition is beautiful. Just totally not worth the money unless you are a big fan of the writer or artist or the story. I'll be trying to sell this or trade it as totally not worth a re-read.

    I picked this up based on the recommendation of Taliesin Jaffe on Signal Boost. It was an intriguing concept - every 90 years, the pantheon of gods are reincarnated as humans for 2 years. They live their lives as superstars, burning brightly then dying 2 years later. I loved the commentary on how society views our pop stars and how that plays on the idea of them as gods (it also helps that the gods of WicDiv look like Bowie, Prince, and Rihanna).

The story kind of spins its wheels a little around issues 5-7 but my overall enjoyment of the first 11 issues makes this... 5 out of 5 stars.

    What??? Nooooooo!! It can't leave me hanging like that. I am pretty obsessed with this series. It's hard not to be. The allure of having Gods in our time? And they are all so glamorous. The artwork is gorgeous. It's almost mesmerizing, hypnotic. Man, I cannot wait for the next installment. What??? Nooooooo!! It can't leave me hanging like that. I am pretty obsessed with this series.

    Read this for the r/Fantasy Bingo challenge, graphic novel square. It's a story of reincarnated gods, pop stars, and fans. Unfortunately, while the art is gorgeous, the story is...kind of aimless? I never got a good sense of who the characters are, or if there's any bigger plot behind it all. Also, it ends with a cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers. What the fuck. Read this for the r/Fantasy Bingo challenge, graphic novel square. It's a story of reincarnated gods, pop stars, and fans.

    I read this in singles as it comes out, and have done since it started, but reading it in this collected hardcover is so much better. You can really get into the story and characters better, and I got through it quick because I couldn't put it down. Whole new affection for a book I've been a fan of since day 1. Looks like I'll be getting the other hardcovers now.... I read this in singles as it comes out, and have done since it started, but reading it in this collected hardcover is so much better.

    4.5 stars (man, when is Goodreads going to allow me some half-star ratings?!) I picked this up because of the cover, while Dan was browsing the graphic novel section at the library. I started flipping through it and found myself actually intrigued by the first few pages. I checked it out, placed it in my to-read pile on my nightstand -- and then forgot about it. Until someone else had it on hold -- and then I was SO MAD I had to return it and hadn't gotten to it.

So, when it came back around to me, I was determined to give it a shot this time before I lost my chance again. I picked it up the other night after finishing something else, and got through it almost in one sitting. It's hard to say how I felt about it - It's such an interesting story concept - gods take human form, but only for two years, and then a break for like 90? Then there's this added mystery element. I will say I felt like I was in over my head for most of the story - and still felt that way up to the end. I would feel I had caught my bearings for a moment, and then would feel a little lost again. I finally started to get a sense of some of the individual characters, and how they related to one another. I did really appreciate Laura being the grounding force to the story. She's human, but wants to be a god and is drawn to them in this way she can't quite explain. I loved Luci, and love that so much of the story in this first volume kind of revolves around Laura's relationship to Luci in particular. I found myself getting sucked into this story, even if I didn't totally understand what was happening a fair portion of the time. I enjoyed the characters, and almost think part of the point was to feel out of your element as you read - to constantly be trying to figure out who and what you're dealing with. Also? The artwork is just freaking breathtaking. And the story ends on one hell of a cliffhanger. So yeah, the next volume will definitely be a must for me.

    I finally read The Wicked + The Divine! I really loved the mythology and the artwork, and I can't wait to check out the second volume! While I am not 100% sure of the chronic problem taking place in the book, the basic concept is that every 90 years there is a recurrence, 12 gods are resurrected and achieve fame/adoration, but within two years, they are all dead.

    I picked this one up after reading some good things about it, and sadly it was a let down. The art is at times very good, specially the covers at the back of the book. However, for the most part it was just acceptable. The line isn't very refined (rarely they play with its thickness) and the colours are just... there? The palette is mediocre. Mostly, no interesting composition either, and very little playing with the vignettes' borders.

The line isn't very refined (rarely they play with its thickness) and the colours are just... there? The palette is mediocre. Mostly, no interesting composition either, and very little playing with the vignettes' borders. There are some very good exceptions to all of this, but definitely not enough to justify the price tag nor the space in your shelf. Both gods in the real world or a teenager being the protagonist are perfectly valid choices. But the development of the story is rather weak and some mayor characters aren't very consistent. If they are gods and so high and mighty and care so little for the mortals, as we are told, why do many of them go out of their way several times just to get the protagonist involved? More importantly, those gods are here to "inspire" apparently, and should they not be, humanity would go back to a dark past. However, not once we are given a glimpse of this, it feels like a reason thrown around lazily so that the setting may be accepted. Then there is the matter of having a good chunk of the plot revolving a crime that doesn't really seem to matter at all. Not to mention minor quibbles like having a good number of gods from around half the world meeting up in London. Why would they all live in the same place? Not even spread throughout the UK? And if it's just in London, why not limit yourself to using the gods of the peoples who have inhabited London/GB, instead of bringing some all the way from Japan or the Middle East, and reduce the scope of the story, with consequences for the UK/Europe? The whole "humanity is doomed without us" is unnecessary. We are never given a reason for why those gods from those cultures specifically, and not the whole pantheon of each of those cultures. It just feels like these gods are there because of some abstract cool factor. Some other reviews praise this comic as doing some kind of commentary on pop stars/famous socialites and the mass media culture, but any kind of commentary, if there is any, is just crude; "Cult-like adoration of media stars is bad" perhaps?

    For personal reasons, I took quite the hiatus from W+D. When it was finally time to come back, I found a set of very pretty hardcovers waiting for me. I'm buying them. I don't know what I'll do once I'm caught up to the trades again, but I'm sure as hell glad I started reading this series once more. I've already read and reviewed the content contained in this book, but needless to say, this is still an incredible title worth every bit of your time.

After this collection (comprising the first two volumes), I can see why this has become such a classic series. Gillen is at the top of his game here, writing a story that, in many ways, feels too niche to be successful, and yet succeeds in spite of that.

I've had this series on my Shelf of Shame for years, and I'm glad to finally be getting into it. After this collection (comprising the first two volumes), I can see why this has become such a classic series. Gillen is at the top of his game here, writing a story that, in many ways, feels too niche to be successful, and yet succeeds in spite of that. The premise is too good to pass up, and it delivers on all of its promise at just about every available opportunity. It grapples with fresh, compelling ideals and philosophies, but never loses sight of the characters that drive the world around them. Everyone feels like they have a voice that's distinctly their own, which is a feat in and of itself, considering how large the cast is. Granted, a lot of the characters most meaningful personality traits can be summed up with "asshole," which doesn't give them tremendous depth right off the bat. But Gillen pulls up just enough layers to convince me that there's more to the supporting cast than that, and his (wise) decision to designate a genuinely lovable character as the protagonist helps carry the story in a lot of ways. You see the world through Laura's eyes, and even when you're frustrated or annoyed at the behaviors of the gods she interacts with, her wide-eyed wonder is easy to get sucked into. There are moments where Gillen skirts the line on indulgence, though, which is a tendency he has in all his work. It's in those moments where the actual narrative he's penning get a bit lost in the nitty-gritty details that are meaningful to him and other history buffs, but go over the heads of commoners like myself. I don't entirely hold that against him, though, but it was a little disorienting to read this and know that there was a lot of depth I missed simply because I'm not thoroughly well-versed in the histories behind the pantheon of gods Gillen is playing with here. Despite my (usual) issues with bits of Gillen's writing, it really is McKelvie and Wilson's art that elevate the series into a whole other realm. The vivid, sharp colors; the immaculate character designs; the simple-yet-dazzling layouts; every visual beat of The Wicked + The Divine is next-level brilliance. It's the art that truly sells the world and its characters, and it somehow manages to gracefully skirt the line between realism and fantasy in a way I don't think anyone has surpassed or will ever be able to surpass. I may have rated this a bit lower if it hadn't been for the plot twist that bookends the second volume. No spoilers, obviously, but the story pulls the rug out from under you in such a bold, brilliant and unexpected way that I have no idea where the story could possibly go next. But I can't wait to find out.

    I'd heard some good things about this series and it was the hard recommendation of a friend whose taste I trust that finally sold me. Firstly, the physical object here is beautiful. It's a hardback book with a minimalist black cover showing the logos of the twelve gods who have been reincarnated for this Recurrence. The art is of a style that I generally enjoy and I really liked it here.

The story is intriguing and has kept me engaged the whole way through: every ninety years, twelve gods return as young people, help inspire and change the world, and within two years, they're all dead. That's quite the hook, and Gillen and co make good on it. This time round, the gods are all pop stars, allowing the writers to talk about our culture through that lens. Our PoV character is Laura, a fan, maybe acolyte, of all of them who Lucifer (aka Luci) takes a shine to. This is followed by attempted murder, actual murder and a mystery over a death. Gillen is happy to build up his mystery slowly, as he builds his world. And you can't help but get drawn in. With such a large cast, to start with, it is sometimes difficult to remember who is who and what their shtick is. This gets easier as the book goes on, and it ends on a heck of a cliffhanger, that completely threw me. I'm definitely going to be picking up more WicDiv, and how can I not get these gorgeous hardbacks? My favourite 'extra' in this volume is the writer's commentary at the back. Gillen goes through pretty much the entire comic, page by page, with his own thoughts and analysis, pointing out things that I missed in my first desperate rush to read the next page. It's a great way to read the whole thing again in a more thoughtful manner.

    The art is so beautiful! It took me longer to read this because I had to stop and stare at every cover! And the premise is really intriguing.

    Wow. That was a refreshing change with a nice and diverse mix of characters. Really loved the style and brilliant colours in the this. Maybe I'm an oblivious reader, but was quite surprised by the end. Certainly keen to explore further volumes. Wow. That was a refreshing change with a nice and diverse mix of characters.

    Took me a minute to get into the art, but the color is lush and that carried me over into unabashed admiration for the overall look. Nice concept, too, and relatively shocking cliffhanger to conclude the book.

    Its striaght. Not sure of the hype. Its beautiful artwork and interesting characters but the plot is a mess. Like at this point I just want to see what will happen to the main character but could careless about the truth of the mystery.

    Gods have 2 years to live, are music stars, murder, and mayhem? Sign me up! The Wicked + The Divine is great. Read it!
