What I thought of The Wicked and the Divine #18

It’s been four long months since the last issue of The Wicked and the Divine and it feels like years thanks to the paucity of good comics recently so it’s good to see it back. This issue starts with a gig being booked in London with a Persephone being booked to play, but Persephone was Laura and she was murdered by Ananke.

It certainly seems like Laura. She’s got the same memories and not just that. She’s got the memories of Ananke murdering her parents as she plays her gig to a small, but highly appreciate audience.wickedandivine2

In the meantime there’s a series of shocking reveals, Ananke realises what Laura is and goes on the warpath, which suddenly leads into The Wicked and the Divine turning somewhat briefly into a superhero comic, with superhero poses and everything!

After all this time away, and the previous half dozen or so issues being relatively quiet character pieces, this issue is a massive burst of energy as Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie come back on top form. This is an immense issue that kicks the series back to life, and it’s a superb mix of action and plot that sets up what is the final stretch to the series ending.

This isn’t an issue if you’re looking to dip in and see what the fuss is about. You really need to go back and give this a go from the start as you’ll be lost otherwise, but trust me, it’s worth it.
