    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 2, 2018

        The comic starts out slowly, but makes up for that rather quickly. It has some tough boots to fill; every issue in this story arc has been nothing short of stellar. It not only fills those boots, but surpasses the previous chapters in this story. The revelations in this issue arent as big as the ones from the other ones, but the battle between Baphomet and Morrigan is perfectly done. The way it ends is completely unexpected, but also fits the strange relationship the two had with each other. The way its structured is something that can only be done in comics, juxtaposing the way their relationship began with how its ending. Its visual storytelling at its finest and its a high point for the series. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ryne Wiley Jul 9, 2018

    McKelvie's art shines brightly in this issue, and Gillen's tact for timing and pacing gets time to shimmer for a majority of the issue. Several huge risks pay off making this the best issue of the arc so far. Teasing only what they want you to know up until the big reveal it's hard to wait another month for the next issue.

    Doom Rocket - Jami Jones Jun 29, 2018

    The Wicked + The Divine continues to be one of the most unique and dynamic books on the market. After thirty-seven issues it is possible that even a pinnacle of the comic book world could become a little stale, but the creative team of Gillen, McKelvie, Wilson & Cowles continue to give readers a reason to unite in search of emotional support in private groups. They pull you into their electric dream and will not let go. You become a part of the story as the story becomes a part of you. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 27, 2018

    The Wicked + The Divine #37 tied up one hell of a loose end that should take us further when this situation calls for all hands on deck. With Dio out, the Norns locked up, and others untrustworthy, there's little room left for the pettiness that would turn them against each other. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 30, 2018

    The Wicked + The Divine #37 is a continuing trend in critically acclaimed book that seems to believe it cant fail or flounder at this point. However, it can, and it has. I personally liked this issue for what it delivered in the back half, but I cant quite recommend it because the front half is repeating black panels with time stamps. Feel free to grab it if youre a fan; otherwise, give it a hard pass. Read Full Review
