ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 81: The Wicked and the Divine

At the center of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s THE WICKED AND THE DIVINE is a set of suave, sexy, newly-super-powered people who have been granted the powers of deities from across cultures and religions. Every 90 years, a new generation of gods emerges through an event called the “Recurrence,” but there’s a cost to their power: Within two years, all of them will be dead.

LISTEN: Want more Image Comics podcasts? Check out our past discussions of great Image titles!

The latest iteration emerges as a crew of huge personalities befitting of the 21st century’s celebrity worship culture. The gods play massive shows and throw multi-day ragers, attracting legions of adherents just like a real-world celebrity might—with the obvious advantage of having supernatural abilities.

Through it all, though, the clock is ticking, and after Lucifer (a David-Bowie-inspired badass) gets herself into trouble with the law, things start to go south for the Pantheon. Meanwhile, our protagonist, a teenager named Laura, gets in with “Luci” and some of the other gods, skirting the edge of fame as she becomes entangled in their web of rivalry and intrigue.

Gillen wields the large and diverse cast well, crafting strong personalities for characters that so clearly demand them. Tracing a line back to Gillen and McKelvie’s last series together, PHONOGRAM, music also saturates this comic, as each of the gods takes cues (both in plot and in depiction) from various pop artists: Rihanna, David Bowie, Lady Gaga, and others!

HEAR: If you’re a fan of THE WICKED AND THE DIVINE, listen to a podcast on Rick Remender’s DEADLY CLASS!

The ComicsVerse team sits down to talk through the major themes of this book, an undeniably cool series with a strong premise, a continuously captivating plot, and attractive and boldly colored artwork. Join the ComicsVerse Podcast panel for a wide-ranging chat on the music, religion, fandom, and romance that characterize THE WICKED AND THE DIVINE.

For your convenience, this podcast is also available on iTunes, Spreaker, SoundCloud, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and Stitcher!
