Ragnarock is finally here. The show to end all shows promises to be a lovely experience for all the gods...wait. Oh noes! Jamie and Matt have drawn Baphomet drenched in blood on the cover. What a hilarious internal communication error. I’m sure it’s a mistake and nothing to do with the story whatsoever.

    Wicked + Divine is deliberately fantastical, but not outlandish. Each of the twelve is vulnerable in their own way, from Minerva's youth to Inanna's search for the truest version of himself, and Laura serving as an intermediary between the civilian and celestial spheres helps ground a very otherworldly storyline.

    Ten issues deep and the title manages to be as engaging as it was from the outset. As penultimate chapters go, this issue checks all the rights boxes and is a fulfilling read. Read Full Review

    "The Wicked + The Divine" #10 is another satisfying installment to a good series, and readers should be on proper tenterhooks for the conclusion to the story arc next issue. What's going to happen? Your guess, I suspect, is as good as mine. Gillen and McKelvie delight in pulling the rug out from under the readership, even as they do so in logical, reasonable ways. It's part of what makes "The Wicked + The Divine" so much fun. Here's to the conclusion and then the next story arcs to come. Read Full Review

    As much as I enjoyed this issue over the previous installment, I think the series is now hitting its stride on all cylinders, managing to take both aesthetic risk while also developing emotional arcs in a realistic manner that builds over issues. Reading WicDiv as a trade seems like it would be the wrong way to go about it. The wait each month to pick up with Laura and the Pantheon enforces Gillen's masterful script work that alludes to activities occurring between issues we're not privy to, but that give the impression that the characters are growing even when not under the reader's gaze. Plus, with next issue's cover, who wouldn't want that on their wall someday? Read Full Review
