    The Wicked + The Divine #25 ups the ante by the end of the issue, giving the Pantheon something grand and new to worry about. We dont know if their two year shelf-life is still a thing, or if this new development will turn that belief on its face. With complex feelings and deep characterization, the series is moving forward with a wonderful pace that makes you wait with bated breath for the next installment. Read Full Review

    The showdown between Persephone and Woden with Urdr acting as the beleaguered line judge comes to an uneasy truce with Woden coming off as just as much as a fuckboy as usual despite freeing the Valkyries. But Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matthew Wilson also take time to show these powerful gods mortality and uncertainty about death in WicDiv #25, and those pages plus crazy cliffhanger are what will stick with me moving forward.

    Much of the comic deals with Laura confronting and convincing Woden to be less of a prick. During her threats to kill him Ananke's former toady we discover Woden is at least smart enough to put an insurance policy in place to protect himself. It might turn out Laura choosing not to kill him was the right move since it appears she'll need all the help she can get with the Great Darkness. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The game may have changed, but the quality of this title certainly hasn't. Read Full Review

    I am a solid Wicked and Divine fan. The art captivates me and most of the story lines hit me in the feels. This issue is absolutely no different. I love the major cliffhangers, and relating to Cass's freak outs. The conflict I keep seeing rise in Laura/Persephone. How I love to hate Woden, it all keeps me coming back for more. Gillen is always leaving me wanting more and I will keep coming back. Read Full Review
