Well, well, well. It appears that others besides myself have taken a shine to this comic series. While this is technically a review of The Wicked + The Divine #11, I wanted to alert you to some other news that has recently made a few headlines. It appears that this little Eisner nominated comic has been optioned by Universal Television to become a television series through Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick’s production company Milkfed Criminal Masterminds. So there! But seriously, how cool is it to see a new comic series get recognition right from the start? Keep reading to find out what makes this comic so notable.

First off, if you are only a sometime reader of this series, I may drop a hint or two as to things that transpired in past issues. In order to speak to events in this current installment, it’s inevitable that I reference the last ten issues. So, in advance: I’m sorry.

What if every single one of us possessed something special inside of us? Not a soul, but rather something that made us greater than others around us. The Wicked + The Divine #1 suggests just that, though of course it isn’t as easy as I just made it sound. Because if we were able to harness all of our life force and focus it to become more than mortal, our lifespan would become greatly reduced. Curious? So was I!

Imagine that every century or so the eternal beings of the past chose avatars so that they could once again inhabit the earth, albeit for a brief time. Of course, not everyone is a believer but what does that matter? People would flock to you merely because of the pleasure they get from your presence. Interestingly enough, these new godlings seem to be in the entertainment business, reaching their followers through singing, dancing, or what have you. Don’t we see fans doing some crazy things on a regular basis? Not so farfetched now, is it? But along with their power to entice, excite, and arouse comes the ability to destroy. Just as we are to insects, so are these immortals to us.
