This Week’s Must Read: The Wicked + The Divine 455 AD #1
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?
Pull List: Aquaman #23, Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Three #5, Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor: Year Three #3, Green Arrow #23, Injustice 2 #6 (Digital Edition), Knights Of The Dinner Table #243, Lucifer #18, Teen Titans #8
This Week’s Must Read: The Flash #22
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?)
