The Wicked + The Divine is Gillen and McKelvie as Lennon and McCartney, sitting down to “write a swimming pool,” or Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, sweating out the hooks of “Waterloo.”
The always good Douglas Wolk over at Comics Alliance, reviewing the first two issues of The Wicked + the Divine. No spoilers, but lots of excellent thematic riffing. Read the rest here.
Also, today is the last day for your shop to Pre-order THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #2. If you haven’t expressed interest, now is a good time to.
