Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critical tongue-attractors like Young Avengers and PHONOGRAM reunite to create a world where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because youÕre immortal, doesnÕt mean youÕre going to live forever. Collects THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #1-5.

I really liked “The Wicked and The Divine, Vol. 1.” The artwork is so beautiful. The story line is pretty fun too. I was drawn into the story because of the artwork. I was fascinated by how beautiful the pictures are. The story is pretty interesting, that these gods get reincarnated every two years as teenagers. The are pretty much rock-stars and then they die. While they are reincarnated, they basically cause a ton of mischief. Now one of the gods is being framed for murder, so a mortal girl is trying to figure out what really happened. The biggest plus of these graphic novels is the artwork.
