Graphic Novel Review: The Wicked and The Divine Vol. 1: The Faust Act by Kieron Gillen, and Others
Summary from Goodreads:
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.
Collects The Wicked + The Divine #1-5.
I've been trying to get into reading graphic novels/comics and this one looks really interesting, plus I snagged it from NetGalley (had to read it on my computer but it was worth it).
The story is so unique, that Gods are reborn but only life for two years as pop stars and I wasn't bored with it at all. Plus I really like the main character, Laura, her personality and her awesome hair, lol. Plus all of the Gods/pop stars are great characters and I cannot wait to meet everyone of them.
It is hard to say how much I love this series! But the art is so amazing! I might have to go out and buy all of the volumes and that rarely happens.
