It’s been a couple of months since the last new issue of Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson‘s reincarnated gods-on-Earth hit series “The Wicked + The Divine,” but the hiatus ends on April 6 with issue #18 — the start of the “most rock-and-roll everything-explodes arc” of the book, billed as a jumping-on point for new readers.
Image Comics looks to bring further attention to the return of #WicDiv with a two-part teaser, acting as something of a “trailer” for the new arc — and CBR has the exclusive first look.
Here’s the full solicitation info for “The Wicked + The Divine” #18:
