    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Sep 7, 2019

    Even though I've been in denial since Monday when I read the final issue, The Wicked + the Divine #45 is the perfect ending to the series with Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matthew Wilson's carefully crafted words and visuals on aging, looking back, and looking to the future. This is a comic that has engaged both my head and heart. Like Ananke, and in this issue, Cassandra say, “I love you. I love you all. I'll miss you.” This comic will always have a beloved place in my heart, and I look forward to rereading, reminiscing, and recommending it into the decades to come even as I begin to look like the characters in this issue.

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Sep 9, 2019

    Much like the series opening with "And once again we return to this," there are shades of Grant Morrison in the ending of the surface, but when you take these bookends in tandem with everything in between, it's intrinsically Gillen, McKelvie, Wilson, and Cowles, it's an ode to living life on your own terms and as what appears to be a final creative statement from this team, it's a heck of a way to go out.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 4, 2019

    It was hard saying goodbye to The Wicked & The Divine. This book felt like an experience with every new discovery, twist, the drama, the action, and the spectacle. You could have loved this book for so many reasons, yet what kept you coming back for more is that this creative team being able to rekindle your love in this with each passing issue. I think we all fell for this one hook, line, and sinker from the end of the debut release. Read Full Review
