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

I'm not overly experienced with reading comics/graphic novels, but when I read this one was about Gods reincarnating every 90 years to have two happy years, I knew I wanted to read it.

 

The Gods are pop stars, immensely popular but some of them might also be killers. What is exactly going on, it's hard to tell...

 

I had some trouble in the beginning to understand what was going on. The story moves really fast and it took me some time to get into it. But after that, it really was enjoyable. I never quite figured out which Gods they were representing. It looks like a weird mix of all kinds of different polytheistic religions. Nevertheless, I found the story quite interesting and I want to know what else is going to happen after The Faust Act. The artwork was very bright and colourful, but I liked it. It worked great with the story.

 

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
