204 – The Wicked + The Divine: The Faust Act

The Wicked + The Divine: The Faust Act

We pick up the much-acclaimed “The Wicked + The Divine: The Faust Act” by Kieron Gillen for our third episode in the Best of 2014 TPB’s series. A totally unique blend of mythology and pop culture, this comic takes teen worship to the extreme and crafts a tale of gods, recursion, and one apathetic teen. We talk about the book’s amazing art (that Baal fresco!), the gods’ desire for adoration, and Gillen’s ability to make these ancient characters feel new and fresh. Plus, we launch into the difficulty behind taking the plunge on a new comic. This week’s Fight Night was “Best Deity Comic.” For more shows, visit www.WelcometoComics.com! Next Week: “Sex Criminals” by Matt Fraction!
