The second volume of the award-winning urban fantasy series where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. Following the tragic and unjust death of Lucifer, it takes a revelation from Inanna to draw Laura back into the worlds of Gods and Superstardom to try and discover the truth behind a conspiracy to subvert divinity. Includes issues 6-11 of the series, plus supplementary material.

This volume definitely ended with a mighty bang. I think this novel is a bit confusing. The stories are a bit all over the place. I felt a bit lost more than once. I thought the story was good but the execution was sub-par. I love the art. I think the artwork is gorgeous and definitely the best part. For this graphic novel as a whole, I’d say better luck next time.
