The gods face a new challenge: The Great Darkness

The Wicked & The Divine Volume 5: Imperial Phase I - Kieron Gillen



The “new gods” spend a lot of time jostling for position and arguing. There's a lot of talk particularly from Cassandra as they seek a suitable response to the Great Darkness. Many are incredibly self-centred and ignore the others.


Still confusing but the artwork is excellent and well-executed. The volume ends with the obvious consequence that there is more to come, especially as some of the gods near the end of their two-year lives. It's entertaining stuff and I've read enough to want to know how this is all going to finish.
