The series, by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson, debuted last summer, and soon became one of Image’s must successful books. Keeping things in the creator-owned comics family, the adaptation will be produced by Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick’s company Milkfed Criminal Masterminds; announced in February to have a two-year deal with Universal TV and the intent to develop other creators’ properties as television series along with their own.
“The Wicked + The Divine” focuses on a group of characters called The Pantheon, who receive powers after merging with deities — a process that also greatly reduces their life expectancy. The series is nominated for three Eisner Awards (to be awarded July 10 at Comic-Con International in San Diego); Best New Series, Best Cover Artist (McKelvie and Wilson) and Best Coloring (Wilson).
