The Look Of Doc Shaner’s Strange Adventures is Both Wicked and Divine

Is it me or do I see the influence of Jamie McKelvie on the following images from Evan “Doc” Shaner promoting his upcoming Strange Adventures comic book with Tom King and Mitch Gerads, coming from DC Comics in 2020? McKelvie’s work, especially with Kieron Gillen on Phonogram, Young Avengers and The Wicked + The Divine, […]

The Spoiler Bell Tolls For Woden, But The Following Silence Is Worse

The Spoiler Bell Tolls For Woden, But The Following Silence Is Worse

In the writer’s notes for The Wicked + The Divine #42, Kieron Gillen describes a moment in the issue as a fist-pumping moment. He’s right. One of Chekov’s guns finally goes off, and Ananke (though mind controlling Woden’s Valkyries) kills Woden. The team executes the violence well. Woden’s faceplate is cracked, punctured and broken into […]

The Wicked + The Divine #37 Review: Just Messing with Me Now

We see the failed attempts at the ritual from years past. In the present, Persephone touches base with Baphomet, and the two try to discern what to do about the apparently returned Ananke, Baal, Woden, and the living heads. Before they can get very far, Morrigan reemerges and attacks Persephone. Morrigan and Baphomet then fight. […]

The Wicked + The Divine #36 Advance Review: Too Cute for Its Own Good

We see the history of Ananke/Minerva’s stealing of god heads throughout time, and, in the present, Persephone comes to terms with the Baal’s revelations. This issue leaves me feeling a bit dumb, because this week on my Comics for Your Pull Box entry (up yesterday, read it here), I slavishly endorsed Wicked + Divine as […]

Wicked + Divine #35 Review: Goes by Too Quickly but Great Nonetheless

We get a bloody scene from 1923 focusing on Ananke and Minerva, and it ends with the latter performing some kind of ritual. In the present, Woden confronts Minerva about her mischief with Ananke. Minerva talks her way out of execution, and she contacts Persephone and the Norns, whom have escaped Woden’s base with the […]

The Wicked + The Divine #34 Review: A Great First Half and OK Second Half

We travel back 6,000 years to figure out how it all started; a final meeting between two sisters takes place with one killing the other upon its conclusion.

The Wicked + The Divine #29 Review: Darkness In The Aftermath

The Wicked + The Divine #29 marks the series return and start of what series creators Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matthew Wilson refer to as Imperial Phase II.

Should We Be Concerned About Diversity at Marvel?

I’ll start by straight up saying this is speculation. This is a piece about some information to consider to watch as news about, yes, yet ANOTHER Marvel Comics event continues unfold. Sometimes speculation is forever just that…sometimes, it’s bang on the money. A useful turn of phrase here, as maybe that’s what this all comes […]
