Gods on earth with huge powers

The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 1: The Faust Act - Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie



The premise behind this comic collection is that gods can appear on Earth for two years with powers which they use usually for their own ends before they die. In this first volume, they tend to appear as music/rock stars in London. The plot is about murder and trying to find out which of the gods is responsible.


There is a fair amount of gore and it is engaging, well-written and the artwork is pretty good, reminiscent in places of Steve Dillon.


In the digital version, as viewed on Adobe Digital Editions, the small print is difficult to read.


A good read, well worth it!
