    AiPT! - Alyssa Jackson Nov 7, 2018

    This issue feels like a delightful inside joke that every WicDiv reader is in on, and like any good inside joke, it's done with as much love as mickey taking. Some of the comics are pure short jokes, and some are fuller stories. All are fantastically entertaining. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Nov 8, 2018

    A comic that is greater than the sum of its parts that managed to remain true to the spirit of the series while taking the piss out of it the whole time. If I were a less fun person, I think Id just call it OKAY. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 14, 2018

    The Wicked + The Divine: The Funnies is a light-hearted romp. It takes the big, ponderous style of the main book and throws it out the window, giving readers glimpses of a funnier universe in its corners. It doesnt progress the main story or add anything to the mythos like the other specials did. Instead, it sets out to be a fun experience, a collection of Wic+Div comic strips from the coolest Sunday morning paper ever, and succeeds admirably. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Patrick Lagua Nov 13, 2018

    Theres a lot of funny to be had in this final WicDiv special. Neither characters nor creators are spared from the delights of being roasted. Whats especially great is the way it manages to find the funny in the absurd and dense mythology that WicDiv has managed to build over the span of forty issues. This is a nice pause at the apex before this roller coaster ride starts to barrel towards its conclusion next month. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 13, 2018

    Humor is subjective, and this is no exception, but it's a pretty good collection of amusement, with a lot of talented creators (and Chip!) Read Full Review
