The Morrigan is The Wicked and the Divine’s token Goth, and every comic seems to have a token Goth.
So if you haven’t gathered by now the focus this issue is on The Morrigan and yes, before she became a god and part of the Pantheon she was a typical Goth.
After a meeting with Anneke, The Morrigan is born, and this as predicted, unleash’s trouble further down the line..
This isn’t a bad issue, but by the recent standards it’s pretty dull as The Morrigan before she became a god isn’t that interesting, and neither is her stereotypicaly nihilistic boyfriend Cameron that she also makes into a god, which as we’ve seen, delivers the trouble we’ve seen in the series so far.
It just feels like a pause in the story with characters I don’t especially care for spouting sub Neil Gaiman-esque bullshit and it’s a pity, but it’s not terrible, just disappointing. That said, I’ve enough faith in Keiron Gillen to ensure this is but a momentary lapse in the quality he’s maintained on this comic for a long time now.
