There’s lots to love in The Wicked + The Divine Funnies, out today from Image Comics. But I did want to highlight this moment, written by British comedian and presenter Romesh Ranganathan, as Baal spits out some lyrics, part of a very funny scene with an emergent wingman, drawn by Julia Madrigal, coloured by Dee Cunniffe.
The Fresh Prince Of Baal Air. Folks, that’s your next T-shirt. And perfectly in line with co-creator of these characters, Kieron Gillen and his awful, awful puns. Which Kieron also revisits with Jamie McKelvie, Dee Cunniffe and Matt Wilson.
He’s no better in person, you know.

Every ninety years gods are reborn as dogs. They are good dogs. They are very good dogs. In two years, they may have learned how to sit, which is one of several (count ’em!) stories in this special. As THE WICKED + THE DIVINE prepares for its final arc, we invite a bunch of friends over, pass out the fizzy pop and sherbet and have a lovely time. Join us!In Shops: Nov 07, 2018
