Manga/Graphic Novel Review #57 – The Wicked + The Divine, Vol.4: Rising Action, by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson

Hey everyone!

Here is my review for The Wicked + The Divine, Vol.4: Rising Action, by  Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson.

Get this title from Book Depository



Every ninety years, twelve gods are reincarnated as young people. They are loved. They are hated. And sometimes – just sometimes – they fall into open Superstar wars.
The fourth volume of the award-winning, best selling series from acclaimed creators KIERON GILLEN, JAMIE McKELVIE and MATT WILSON is the most explosive yet.



  • it’s not as terrible as the previous two volumes
  • actual important things for the plot happen



  • it’s still confusing af, and unnecessarily complicated



If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know how my relationship with this series has been… well, turbulent. I loved the first volume to death. The second was ok and the third was just probably one of the most terrible things I’ve ever read. But I like the premise of this series way too much to give up on it. The gods are amazing and I love their bickering. Also, I want to know the endgame. I’m so glad the original artist is back. I love his style so much. He does a great job with the characters’ designs and even with the violence and fights. I was also excited that this volume had a lot of action and plot development, finally!!! I still didn’t love it as I did the first volume but I found it interesting still.
