December Will Be A Big Month For Wicked+Divine Fans

by Hannah Means Shannon

Looking at the upcoming titles for the month of December 2017, if you’re a fan of Wicked+Divine, you’re going to have plenty of comics to chew on with three publications arriving in the last month of the year.

Those titles are:

Firstly, it looks like the Wicked+Divine 455AD One-Shot will be back in shops with both covers A and B, so if you missed out the first time, dive in now.

In which:

Nothing lives forever, be it man, god, or empire, but that doesn’t mean you have to go quietly. Join us as Lucifer refuses to fiddle while the Roman Empire burns. The critically acclaimed THE WICKED + THE DIVINE inevitably vandalizes history as it turns to the Sack of Rome. Showcasing the epic art of ANDRÉ LIMA ARAÚJO (Avengers AI, Man Plus), the special is NOT included in the forthcoming fifth volume of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE.

But the all-new The Wicked+TheDivine Christmas Annual is also going to land, spreading holiday cheer and malevolence, too, with two different covers.

It arrives on December 13th, and contains the work of several artists, including Kris Anka, Chynna Clugston Flores, Carla Speed McNeil, Rachael Stott, and cover art by Emma Vieceli and Jamie McKelvie with Matt Wilson.

Apparently, this happened:

JAMIE said “It’s a shame we never saw any of the gods’ early funtimes,” and KIERON said “Yeah,” and then they looked at each other, and then called all their talented friends to do a Christmas album of (mostly) fan service! Inanna and Baal getting it on! Lucifer and Sakhmet getting it on! Dionysus giving Baphomet a lift in a crappy car! And more! This one has it all.

And lastly, you’ve got a return to shops for The Wicked+The Divine Vol 1: The Faust Act, where it all began, and a PERFECT Christmas present for folks in your life you want to introduce to the series.

As a reminder:

Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critical tongue-attractors like Young Avengers and PHONOGRAM reunite to create a world where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever. Collects THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #1-5.

It’s looking like a very WicDiv holiday, so settle in for a good read.
