This Week’s Must Read: The Wicked + The Divine #6
At first it was tough for me to choose which book from my pull would be my must read – Batman? Wytches? Either Captain or Ms. Marvel? – but all I had to do was relive the events of The Wicked + The Divine‘s last issue and remember that cliffhanger! This series from superstars Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie has been a knockout hit, one that I cannot recommend strongly enough. From its interesting premise where gods are reincarnated as pop stars to what it says when we treat pop stars like gods – The Wicked + The Divine is one part colorful, pulpy fun and another part scathing introspection. It’s likely important you read issues 1-5 before picking up this latest book, but you’ll thank me once you do.

This Week’s Must Read: The Sandman: Overture #4
The only bad thing about this series is the downtime between issues. Still, with a script by Neil Gaiman and art by J. H. Williams III, every issue of The Sandman: Overture so far has proven worth the wait. I expect this issue won’t be any different.
