“CITY OF GOD” Nothing lives forever, be it man, god, or empire, but that doesn’t mean you have to go quietly. Join us as Lucifer refuses to fiddle while the Roman Empire burns.
The critically acclaimed THE WICKED + THE DIVINE inevitably vandalizes history as it turns to the Sack of Rome. Showcasing the epic art of ANDRÉ LIMA ARAÚJO (Avengers AI, Man Plus), the special is NOT included in the forthcoming fifth volume of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE.

The Wicked + The Divine is one of my favorite comics because the concept of gods being reincarnated as influential cultural figures, be they famous authors or pop stars, is so intriguing, critiquing society’s obsession with worship and celebrity. In The Wicked + The Divine 455 #1, the story travels into the past for a one-shot adventure about Lucifer’s role in the Sack of Rome. Somehow, I have to imagine Lucifer was pretty pro-ransacking. Though I do wonder just who Lucifer became — a high-ranking Roman or someone more plebeian?

“THE BUTTON” part four! The cataclysmic events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 continue here! The Dark Knight and The Fastest Man Alive, the two greatest detectives on any world, unite to explore the mystery behind a certain blood-stained smiley button embedded in the Batcave wall.
What starts as a simple investigation turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party—and it’s not who anyone suspects! It’s a mystery woven through time, and the ticking clock starts here!

With the classic Jay Garrick on the cover and the conclusion of “The Button” on the inside, this issue can’t come fast enough for me. (See what I did there?)


Buy these comics at your local comic book store (Don’t know where that is? Here you go.), from Things From Another Universe, or digitally via Comixology.com.
