    When I read the last volume of this series I was about to give up. The story was all over the place and the art had become blah. I was willing to give it one more chance. I am so glad I did - this volume brought things back to where they used to be. While there was still some co...

    This was my favourite volume so far. For once I actually understood everything that was happening and the artwork was back to its usual standard! There were also a few crazy revelations that made things interesting! I finally feel like this comic is really going places and I'm excited ...

    Yesss! Back on track and back to the amazing artwork. ...

    Actual rating: 3.5 Stars The Wicked + The Divine contains such a unique storyline that it?s impossible to ignore. The individual issue covers are stunning in themselves, but the story within is just as fantastic. However?even with the alluring title ?Rising Action?, thi...

    Rising Action is an appropriate title. The s#!t hits the fan as all the animosity from the previous volumes boils over into a bubbling cauldron of fighting and death. I have no idea where the series is headed from here. Jamie McKelvie is back and his art is fantastic. ...

    Glad we have the original artists back. ...

    WrensReads Review: There comes a time in every reader's life where you just don't care anymore. The art is pretty, the story line has such potential.. ..but you are just so confused most of the time and lost in what happened when in the plot, that you just have to set...

    Very happy to be back to the regular artist and storyline. Even if this story was garbage (which it isn't) it's worth it for the art porn. Easily my favorite art in comics right now. ...

    Wow, this is back in form. As bad as the last one was, this one is that good. They story is working again, the art is excellent and the story went somewhere. Laura is back. I am excited for the next issue. I think I am also ready for this series to be wrapped up and brought to an e...

    The main plot is still vague but at least the "Rising Action" is not a lie. And no experiment in drawings anymore. ...

    Also available on the WondrousBooks blog. Yes! Thank the Pantheon, the art disaster that was the last volume has been put to an end. I couldn't be happier to have the beautiful art back. Having read as many comic books as I have so far, I think that Jamie McKelvie's art is up the...

    Actualización 27/06/2018 Mi segunda lectura de este cuarto volumen y me encanta, es sorprendente esta serie. La voy a seguir recomendando siempre (? Febrero 2017 Hasta ahora el mejor volumen de todos los 4 volúmenes de esta serie de novelas gráficas. No puedo dejar de recomenda...

    Individual issue reviews: #18 | #19 | #20 | #21 | #22 Total review score: 2.4 I don't know, guys. I don't know what happened here. I felt my interest die along with the characters. ...

    Following the guest artist-infestation and lack of plot from Volume 3, The Wicked + The Divine presents its most explosive volume with what?s left of the twelve gods at odds with each other. As the subtitle ?Rising Action? suggests, this is the most action-heavy Wicked has been s...

    Now THAT was a comeback! Loved this one! After the questionable volume 3 (which I didn't really like all that much), I started to worry about the series, but volume 4 reassured me that was just a temporary setback. Not only do we have the stunning art back - we also get some of the con...

    The gods are at war, and thank Ananke they are! Volume 4 and it's rising action had me at the edge of my seat. WicDiv has matured as a high-concept series, and I feel like it's now paying off in spectacular fashion. I am following the mystery and the mythology which makes me feel so co...

    Man. The first 2 of these were so freaking good... what is happening? At least the original artist is back. Much better lines and styles for sure. Less comic-y and more artistic. Overall, I am still intrigued by where this super original story is going to go! ...

    I will be talking some spoilers for the whole series as well as for this volume, although I won't try to give away anything too important. Still, beware. I am a fan of WicDiv since issue #2, and have been following the series month-to-month ever since. I even really liked the third ...

    Loved this one! Bummed I have to wait until the summer to find out what is going to happen next. ...

    Wow oh wow It definitely was nice to be back in this world, but even nicer to be back to the original artwork. I was so disappointed in the last volume because we kept changing artists from each issue and the artwork is what captivated me originally. In my opinion the story is f...

    Very good! I'm happy to say this volume gets things moving again and isn't a filler volume like 3 was; and Jamie McKelvie is back as the artist!!!! So aside from everything good about this series coming back, this was a pretty fast paced volume; no lurking in the shadows plotting again...

    It was better than volume three, but this is really a 2.5 star book. I want to give it 3 stars, I really do, but I can't. It's sad, the series started out so strong. But this volume was still confusing (as was volume 3, though this wasn't as extreme) and there were large sections that ...

    I?m in a minority in not considering WicDiv amongst Gillen & McKelvie?s best work, and maybe less of a minority in not considering the epic superhero smackdowns which dominate this volume to be amongst WicDiv?s biggest strengths. But even given all that, this was a lot of fun...

    Now THAT was a comeback! Loved this one! After the questionable volume 3 (which I didn't really like all that much), I started to worry about the series, but volume 4 reassured me that was just a temporary setback. Not only do we have the stunning art back - we also get some of the con...

    The gods are at war, and thank Ananke they are! Volume 4 and it's rising action had me at the edge of my seat. WicDiv has matured as a high-concept series, and I feel like it's now paying off in spectacular fashion. I am following the mystery and the mythology which makes me feel so co...

    Wow, this is back in form. As bad as the last one was, this one is that good. They story is working again, the art is excellent and the story went somewhere. Laura is back. I am excited for the next issue. I think I am also ready for this series to be wrapped up and brought to an e...

    Following the guest artist-infestation and lack of plot from Volume 3, The Wicked + The Divine presents its most explosive volume with what?s left of the twelve gods at odds with each other. As the subtitle ?Rising Action? suggests, this is the most action-heavy Wicked has been s...

    Now THAT was a comeback! Loved this one! After the questionable volume 3 (which I didn't really like all that much), I started to worry about the series, but volume 4 reassured me that was just a temporary setback. Not only do we have the stunning art back - we also get some of the con...

    The gods are at war, and thank Ananke they are! Volume 4 and it's rising action had me at the edge of my seat. WicDiv has matured as a high-concept series, and I feel like it's now paying off in spectacular fashion. I am following the mystery and the mythology which makes me feel so co...

    Man. The first 2 of these were so freaking good... what is happening? At least the original artist is back. Much better lines and styles for sure. Less comic-y and more artistic. Overall, I am still intrigued by where this super original story is going to go! ...

    I will be talking some spoilers for the whole series as well as for this volume, although I won't try to give away anything too important. Still, beware. I am a fan of WicDiv since issue #2, and have been following the series month-to-month ever since. I even really liked the third ...

    Wow oh wow It definitely was nice to be back in this world, but even nicer to be back to the original artwork. I was so disappointed in the last volume because we kept changing artists from each issue and the artwork is what captivated me originally. In my opinion the story is f...

    Very good! I'm happy to say this volume gets things moving again and isn't a filler volume like 3 was; and Jamie McKelvie is back as the artist!!!! So aside from everything good about this series coming back, this was a pretty fast paced volume; no lurking in the shadows plotting again...

    It was better than volume three, but this is really a 2.5 star book. I want to give it 3 stars, I really do, but I can't. It's sad, the series started out so strong. But this volume was still confusing (as was volume 3, though this wasn't as extreme) and there were large sections that ...

    After the utter disaster that was volume three (which I'm still pretending doesn't exist), I was extremely nervous with this new instalment. But holy fucking shit, this volume absolutely DELIVERED; hands down, the best volume of the series so far. Not only did the story move in a terri...

    *4.5* ...

    Just a quick warning to say that this review contains spoilers for The Wicked + The Divine: Commercial Suicide! Having recently reread The Wicked + The Divine series so far, I was eager to move onto the fourth volume, Rising Action, the title in itself promising a great story. Th...

    I?m in a minority in not considering WicDiv amongst Gillen & McKelvie?s best work, and maybe less of a minority in not considering the epic superhero smackdowns which dominate this volume to be amongst WicDiv?s biggest strengths. But even given all that, this was a lot of fun...

    This is the fourth volume of The Wicked + The Divine series. It's on going, so, less is more in the review of this volume. What can I say it was okay. I hate Annake she is pretty screwed up. I also despise Woden because he is only looking after himself. There is a divide between the go...

    4,5 rating Having just finished vol 7 of Saga (which was fucking amazing goreaditrightnow!) it's sort of unfair to read/review another comic right after. I think this is a really strong return for our gods and godesses - a volume filled with action and exciting plot-development. Fin...

    Very good! I'm happy to say this volume gets things moving again and isn't a filler volume like 3 was; and Jamie McKelvie is back as the artist!!!! So aside from everything good about this series coming back, this was a pretty fast paced volume; no lurking in the shadows plotting again...

    It was better than volume three, but this is really a 2.5 star book. I want to give it 3 stars, I really do, but I can't. It's sad, the series started out so strong. But this volume was still confusing (as was volume 3, though this wasn't as extreme) and there were large sections that ...

    After the utter disaster that was volume three (which I'm still pretending doesn't exist), I was extremely nervous with this new instalment. But holy fucking shit, this volume absolutely DELIVERED; hands down, the best volume of the series so far. Not only did the story move in a terri...

    *4.5* ...

    Just a quick warning to say that this review contains spoilers for The Wicked + The Divine: Commercial Suicide! Having recently reread The Wicked + The Divine series so far, I was eager to move onto the fourth volume, Rising Action, the title in itself promising a great story. Th...

    I?m in a minority in not considering WicDiv amongst Gillen & McKelvie?s best work, and maybe less of a minority in not considering the epic superhero smackdowns which dominate this volume to be amongst WicDiv?s biggest strengths. But even given all that, this was a lot of fun...

    This is the fourth volume of The Wicked + The Divine series. It's on going, so, less is more in the review of this volume. What can I say it was okay. I hate Annake she is pretty screwed up. I also despise Woden because he is only looking after himself. There is a divide between the go...

    4,5 rating Having just finished vol 7 of Saga (which was fucking amazing goreaditrightnow!) it's sort of unfair to read/review another comic right after. I think this is a really strong return for our gods and godesses - a volume filled with action and exciting plot-development. Fin...

    Wooooow ...

    I'm so happy that this vol was so much better than the previous one which was a big disappointment for me.. Laura is back! ...

    When I read the last volume of this series I was about to give up. The story was all over the place and the art had become blah. I was willing to give it one more chance. I am so glad I did - this volume brought things back to where they used to be. While there was still some co...

    This was my favourite volume so far. For once I actually understood everything that was happening and the artwork was back to its usual standard! There were also a few crazy revelations that made things interesting! I finally feel like this comic is really going places and I'm excited ...

    Yesss! Back on track and back to the amazing artwork. ...

    Actual rating: 3.5 Stars The Wicked + The Divine contains such a unique storyline that it?s impossible to ignore. The individual issue covers are stunning in themselves, but the story within is just as fantastic. However?even with the alluring title ?Rising Action?, thi...

    Rising Action is an appropriate title. The s#!t hits the fan as all the animosity from the previous volumes boils over into a bubbling cauldron of fighting and death. I have no idea where the series is headed from here. Jamie McKelvie is back and his art is fantastic. ...

    Glad we have the original artists back. ...

    WrensReads Review: There comes a time in every reader's life where you just don't care anymore. The art is pretty, the story line has such potential.. ..but you are just so confused most of the time and lost in what happened when in the plot, that you just have to set...

    Very happy to be back to the regular artist and storyline. Even if this story was garbage (which it isn't) it's worth it for the art porn. Easily my favorite art in comics right now. ...

    Wow, this is back in form. As bad as the last one was, this one is that good. They story is working again, the art is excellent and the story went somewhere. Laura is back. I am excited for the next issue. I think I am also ready for this series to be wrapped up and brought to an e...

    The main plot is still vague but at least the "Rising Action" is not a lie. And no experiment in drawings anymore. ...

    Also available on the WondrousBooks blog. Yes! Thank the Pantheon, the art disaster that was the last volume has been put to an end. I couldn't be happier to have the beautiful art back. Having read as many comic books as I have so far, I think that Jamie McKelvie's art is up the...

    Actualización 27/06/2018 Mi segunda lectura de este cuarto volumen y me encanta, es sorprendente esta serie. La voy a seguir recomendando siempre (? Febrero 2017 Hasta ahora el mejor volumen de todos los 4 volúmenes de esta serie de novelas gráficas. No puedo dejar de recomenda...

    Individual issue reviews: #18 | #19 | #20 | #21 | #22 Total review score: 2.4 I don't know, guys. I don't know what happened here. I felt my interest die along with the characters. ...

    Following the guest artist-infestation and lack of plot from Volume 3, The Wicked + The Divine presents its most explosive volume with what?s left of the twelve gods at odds with each other. As the subtitle ?Rising Action? suggests, this is the most action-heavy Wicked has been s...

    Now THAT was a comeback! Loved this one! After the questionable volume 3 (which I didn't really like all that much), I started to worry about the series, but volume 4 reassured me that was just a temporary setback. Not only do we have the stunning art back - we also get some of the con...

    The gods are at war, and thank Ananke they are! Volume 4 and it's rising action had me at the edge of my seat. WicDiv has matured as a high-concept series, and I feel like it's now paying off in spectacular fashion. I am following the mystery and the mythology which makes me feel so co...

    Man. The first 2 of these were so freaking good... what is happening? At least the original artist is back. Much better lines and styles for sure. Less comic-y and more artistic. Overall, I am still intrigued by where this super original story is going to go! ...

    I will be talking some spoilers for the whole series as well as for this volume, although I won't try to give away anything too important. Still, beware. I am a fan of WicDiv since issue #2, and have been following the series month-to-month ever since. I even really liked the third ...
