Every 90 years, twelve gods incarnate in the bodies of ordinary people. For two years, they are loved. They are hated. They are stars. And then they are dead. The Image Comics series THE WICKED + THE DIVINE is the stunning new work from the critically acclaimed and reader-beloved Young Avengers team, Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie. THE WICKED + THE DIVINE VOLUME 1: THE FAUST ACT will be in stores in November.
Returning to the collision of music, fame, and divinity that launched their careers with the series PHONOGRAM, Gillen and McKelvie have created a world where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pops stars are the ultimate gods. Caught in their shining wake is Laura, the ultimate fan girl, who is made an offer she can’t refuse when Lucifer (here a sleek, Bowie-esque androgynous blonde in a crisp white suit) is framed for murder and asks for her help.
THE WICKED + THE DIVINE VOLUME 1 will be in comic book stores on November 12 and in bookstores on November 25. It is specially priced at just $9.99 and available for pre-order now.
