Comic Book Review || The Wicked + The Divine Issue #3 (Single Issue)

Title: The Wicked + The Divine #3 (Single Issue)
Author: Kieron Gillen
Pages: 32
Buy the book: Amazon

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Laura has no choice. She has to go underground to find the goth-goth-gothity-goth of the Morrigan. Is this the most illadvised underworld-related decision since Orpheus decided to see how Eurydice was doing in the back seat? To find out, read the comic that people are literally calling "The one by GILLEN/MCKELVIE/WILSON with the very long title."

So I ended up printing out all of the covers from the comics. They're just so beautiful I couldn't help myself. Just look at The Morrigan up there! Major googly eyes. ;)

In the third installment of The Wicked + The Divine, Laura (our super-fan-girl) finds herself in the middle of an abandoned underground subway station, expecting to find The Morrigan, but instead she ends up finding someone completely and horrifyingly different: Baphomet. Everything has gone haywire.

Skip to a few pages later and another God called Badb shows up. Baphoment and Badb end up dueling a little and exchanging some hilarious but cutting insults back and forth before the riot squad finally decides to do their job and turn up. My only issue with this is the fact that I have no idea why they were fighting in the first place. Is it just because Baphoment is insanely cocky? Is it because Badb just has anger issues like we all know Gods in mythology tend to have? Who knows. Hopefully it will get answered in the next issue.
