Beyond that, "The Wicked + The Divine" is somewhat uneven in plot, and this volume is a bit of a muddle. Characters and gods come and go and are transformed at a rapid pace, and yet it seems like there is little forward movement. We get more characters, and a bit of explanation about how this world came about, but it's not really clear what it's all leading up to.
Still, the gods-as-rock-stars theme is clever and fun, and the comment about how worship and celeb fandom have intertwined is not heavy-handed. There are elements of the Gillen-McKelvie collaboration on "Phonogram", where the music was more directly linked to the supernatural.
This is a unique series, and though it has its rough patches, it is good enough that I'll read on.
Also, how gorgeous was THAT image of Laura? You know which one I mean. Jaw-droppingly beautiful artwork.
There is SOME sexual content in this, but it is not prevalent, it is more of a background, used as a way to describe a character's life style. Everything used in the story has a purpose, whether it is spelled out or used as subtext, there doesn't seem to be anything that isn't relevant. If you feel there is, it usually clicks into place later on in the story and I love writing like that.
I feel this story would appeal to many, and if you don't mind "colorful" language, some sexual content, violence, gore, or anything of that nature then you should definitely pick this up.
The characters are well written, they're nice round characters and you definitely develop feelings of dislike, sympathy, or indifference for them. This story is unique and keeps you on your toes, I look forward for the next installment.
