"OKAY," Part Five: There's one "i" in "decide" but two in "deicide." I'm not sure if that tells you anything, but it sounds pretty enigmatic, right?

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 24, 2019

    The Wicked + The Divine #44 closes out much of the book's plotlines, and it does so in an emotionally affecting, perfect way. Kieron Gillen's script hits all the points it needs to hit, but saying it that way takes away from the sheer artistry and majestic beauty of what is accomplished in this issue. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 24, 2019

    The Wicked & The Divine #44 was worth the wait for everything jaw-dropping experienced from these once-gods who find themselves faced with the real world again.

    I've spent the last five years living, regressing, and sometimes growing alongside these characters expertly crafted by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matthew Wilson so emotions definitely run high in The Wicked + The Divine #44 especially in regards to Luci and Laura and Baal and Inanna. But it is one of the most life-affirming comics I've ever read, and I'm glad that we (hopefully) get to see a peek of the lives of Laura and company in the final issue of the series. (That final cover reveal, y'all!!) Read Full Review
