The Wicked+The Divine #19 – Review
Writer: Kieron Gillen
Cover: Jamie McKelvie

It feels like we’re so close, but yet so far. Persephone has gotten her team together to go after the “totally dodgy” Anenke and solve the murders of our fallen gods. This war is anybody’s game, especially as the victories and loses go back and forth.
Dionysus has been added to Persephone’s team (the more the merrier), but it may not be enough. Anenke’s plans are being set in motion. Baal, Sakhmet, and Amaterasu, have come after Persephone and the gang, but not to kill them…yet. It seems that Minerva is the key that could help Aneke’s plan or tear it apart. With her capture, our team might have a few setbacks. Must. Protect. The child! How many more innocents will be caught in the crossfire until our “Antichrist” is destroyed?
This book has evolved so much from what I thought it would be. Our main character went from zealous fangirl to a powerful goddess who’s bent on taking down Valhalla and the Pantheon. Talk about some epic character development. As much as I have come to love many of these characters, I also enjoy watching them fight. If you want good writing with full on action and character, look for Kieron Gillen. Its so hard to choose a favorite character when they are all written so well. However, I ahve to goo with the Morrigan. Girl is crazy but stylish.
Its really hard to find fault with Jamie McKelvie and Matthew Wilson’s art. So I’m just gonna say that I truly enjoy it. Even when there are panels in almost complete darkness, Wilson still finds a way to throw in some nice colors. McKelvie’s designs are incredibly fashionable. Not just the character style, but Valhalla and other cool buildings. Zero arguments against McKelvie and Wilson will be found here.
