Comic Book Review || The Wicked + The Divine #4 (Single Issue)

Title: The Wicked + The Divine #4 (Single Issue)
Author: Kieron Gillen
Pages: 32
Buy the book: Amazon

Synopsis from Amazon:
The mystery is solved. But does pop-god Lucifer like the answer? The answer is a word that rhymes with “Go”, “Blow” and “Pro”. If you think the answer rhymes with “Cow” I applaud you for your unconventional nature. It’s good to experiment. We’re experimenting with being Awesome for four issues in a row. JOIN US.

I feel as if the artwork gradually gets more intense and satisfying from issue to issue. The story line is coming along great, and I'm even more of a fan of Luci now that I've read this issue. Baal needs to calm down, though. He definitely has a Kanye West vibe going on. Makes me roll my eyes so far back into my head I'm afraid they're going to get stuck. Everything he says is just so cringe-y.

In this issue, Laura and the journalist we've met in the previous comics meet up with Baal (he stumbles upon them accusing him of murder, actually) and invites them back to "Valhalla." Laura is the only one allowed in to speak with all of the other gods, where she receives some very devastating news, in which she is furious. Our quirky little fangirl stands up for Lucy in the face of some very terrifying Gods which I applaud her for.
