Wherein Dionysus sits in the darkness for most of an issue, but in an awesome way. Honestly, you'll love it. Also: other stuff.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 2, 2017

    It's really hard to review this comic, because the creative team is so locked in, so perfectly matched and so skilled at doing what they do that it turns into nothing but gushing, but there's a lot of great stuff in here as we build to what is likely to be a huge failure on the part of the pantheon.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Aug 9, 2017

    WicDiv #30 shows that even right before an impending apocalyptic event, Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matthew Wilson still take time to have readers listen and empathize with the Pantheon members' emotions and problems. They also continue to use the highly stylized trappings of the Pantheon to shed light on real world problems, like abusive relationships. Even though they're fictional, I care about Dionysus and Baphomet like they are real people and hope for the best for them. But, knowing WicDiv's past approach to characters with softer edges (RIP Fangirl Laura and Inanna) that won't likely be the case. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 9, 2017

    The Wicked & The Divine #30 for the most part was a tame issue which is different for this book. Not a bad thing, though hopefully the next issue pushes their need to find Sakhmet, to get this machine rolling, or make us fear the great darkness again. Till then I guess you're just enjoying the everyday life of a god. Read Full Review

    Wicked and Divine continues to be consistently great and is fast approaching what I believe will be an explosive and bloody conclusion to this arc. Read Full Review
