It's time for a private audience with Anake, she who has protected and judged the Pantheon for thousands of years. Yes, it's time for an interview... with an umpire. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Also: Baphomet being all goth and having a nice little mope.

    AiPT! - Alyssa Jackson Mar 25, 2015

    McKelvie knows when to focus on the characters, and when to blow out to wildness. His pacing and Gillen's perfectly mesh, making this a completely engrossing reading experience. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jess Camacho Mar 26, 2015

    I did miss Laura this issue and there's definitely something going on with her that we're going to be filled in on next month but "The Wicked + The Divine" #9 is something you can't put down and won't want to put down. I'm always looking forward to the next issue but after this one, I'm impatient about it. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Soup Owens-Fowler Mar 26, 2015

    As a single issue, WicDiv #9 is an infodump where very little aside from exposition happens. Those not invested into this world might very well be put off by an issue where people talk to each other for 90 percent of it. This is not for them. This is the issue those who poured over every detail of the previous eight issues, speculating, making theories, shipping characters, fancasting the remaining gods, and generally adoring everything Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie has been serving them on this title. It is an Issue of Answers, though each answer freely given provides more questions and will most certainly cause strife for the entire cast in the issues to come. To the core mystery of the book it is essential reading, and that alone should be the deciding factor for you. For me, I need to read issue #10 yesterday. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 26, 2015

    For the already-converted, The Wicked and the Divine #9 continues Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's hot streak, but for the skeptics and the agnostics, this issue might be a little bit of a slow-down from some of the previous ones. Read Full Review
