The Wicked + The Divine is an ongoing comic that started in 2014. Written by Kieron Gillen and Illustrated by Jamie McKelvie, it shines a light on brilliance and mortality through the lens of pop stars and divinity.
The premise is relatively straightforward. Every ninety years twelve people will discover that they are reincarnated deities. Overnight they become famous, powerful, and robbed of many of their inhibitions. It’s not that the god’s are evil per-se, but once incarnated they have only two years to live.
