    I thought this series was done, or maybe I was simply done with this series. There is one more volume after this one. This is a collection of short stories that happen between the story or volumes that we have already read, so then people who died, like Lucifer, now have a story again. I did think a few of the stories were decent, but overall, this added very little to the series, Calista speaking. This feels like a cash grab. I will read the last volume and finish this story and I hope it's a de I thought this series was done, or maybe I was simply done with this series. There is one more volume after this one.

I feel like it's lost direction toward the end, so I hope they have a good ending fixed up.

    Somehow I got it in my mind that this was the final volume of the series. So imagine my disappointment to find instead that it is a compendium of previously uncollected interstitial stories dealing with incarnations of the gods in times past and specials with random sex scene flashbacks in the modern story as well as non-continuity humor strips. I almost stopped reading when I hit the text-heavy tribute to Agatha Christie in the middle, but I plowed through despite gaining nothing but misery.

    This was a chore for me. I was keen to get right back in the story but this was a collection of specials that were released between volumes. Also when I read a comic book I’m not looking for chapters of text

    This volume collects the six specials that go with the series [455 AD, 1373 AD, 1831 AD, 1923 AD, Christmas Special, and Funnies]. Most of them are pretty good but it's still a bit disappointing because I feel like every time we gain some plot momentum with this series the authors just decide to take a huge detour before moving on. I guess most of these were published years ago, but still.

I guess most of these were published years ago, but still. I like that the four specials focused on certain years give us actual insight into the game that Minerva and Anake are playing, and also that they all heavily feature Lucifer, who seems to be a major player each time even though it doesn't usually end well for them. The Christmas Special showed snapshots of what the gods were doing 6 months before the start of the series and definitely had some cute moments [also if you just really want to see Baal and Innana's dicks then you are in luck lol]. The Funnies issue I thought was a complete waste of time and featured such 'classics' as 'the whole cast but if they were dogs'. They even say at the beginning 'we're contracted for one more special but don't have any more story to tell so here's some random stuff'. Like ...maybe just either don't do another special or try to find something else relevant to do? Also I didn't actually read most of the 1923 issue because it was largely prose and I refuse to read comic issues that are just prose books in disguise. I'm sure it was very good but I just can't do it. Some highlights: Luci, I miss you! Also yeah you're all awful lmao, especially at the beginning. Baphomet pls Ancient Roman Lucifer is uh ...having some issues O_o But middle ages Lucifer is gettin' shit done! obvious Frankenstein issue is obvious [but still good] Womp Womp

    Wicked+Divine is one of the better comics out there right now, and I feel it's criminally underrepresented next to say, Saga. The premise of the series is about a recurring pantheon of 12 gods who return to the earth every 90 years to live fast lives of revelry. (You live fast and die young within two years). The series is slowly starting to give some answers, but this volume is a chance to explore the different dealings throughout the ages and experiment with times outside of smartphones. 1831 45 Wicked+Divine is one of the better comics out there right now, and I feel it's criminally underrepresented next to say, Saga.

    Hmm, I appreciate that the creators wanted to compile these special issues into one volume, but this didn't really work for me. • I enjoyed the first three stories. They were typical WicDiv tales and they were solid. I liked all the guest artists' work as well. • However, I didn't care for the fourth story at all. It's 90% prose and, honestly, it was a chore to read. I can appreciate Gillen wanting to do something different, but this was a bust for me. • The Christmas annual was fine. 🤷‍♂️ • Also wa Hmm, I appreciate that the creators wanted to compile these special issues into one volume, but this didn't really work for me. • I enjoyed the first three stories.

The dog one was stupid, the chair one was the faintest hint of amusing, Zdarsky's story was.... Zdarsky. I dunno. Just not my cuppa. A very uneven collection. I'm looking forward to getting back to the main series and into the new arc.

Honestly, at this point, I don't know if it's that I like the plot or the characters, but... it's good, in a way that has to be acknowledged regardless of whether or not I like it. This volume is a "special edition" thing where it's not a continuation of the ongoing plot but a collection of different stories.

The first four are some spin-off stories about previous Pantheons, the next are some Christmas specials, and then there are just some nonsense funny ones. It's a combination, but it works. I thought all of the spin-off type ones worked quite well, and seeing the previous gods was cool. Really, you can't deny that these authors can really write a line. The Roman one, the Black Death one, the Victorian-era one... oh, and the Agatha Christie one. That last one felt a little cheating because it was more a book than a comic, but it was still interesting. And I liked seeing a glimpse of the gods we saw in a previous volume for a bit. I do wish the first Christmas special didn't have full male nudity, because I quite like Baal and Inanna and that made me skim those pages. But I liked getting these cool little tidbits about the gods in previous lives, or the beginning of their ascension. I think the one with Lucifer and Amaterasu was my favorite. (view spoiler)[Lucifer... APOLOGIZED. To Amaterasu - and she never does that!! And what's annoying is that I don't even remember what the nature of their relationship was earlier on! But... wow. (hide spoiler)] The "Funnies" were, as per the title, fun. They're just these nonsense shorts that are a blast. My absolute favorite, though, was the Scooby-Doo spoof. I loved the inclusion of all of the characters and how in-character they were. It felt cute and fun and I loved the references - Inanna commenting on "who could do that?" while Baal and Ananke just look away and Woden's unmasking. Really, really good. 4.25/5 stars. There's a difference between rating a book based on it being good and my liking it, but this was a bit of both. And I was grinning by the end. Onto the final volume it is, then. Oh man. Here we go.

    This had a really strong start but then the writing got lazy halfway thru. Adding chunks of text instead of illustrating the story is just plain laziness. People DO NOT buy a comic to read it like a normal book. Not too mention the bullshit short at the end of this volume. For a Mature rated comic I was really disappointed to see juvenile type shorts at the end of this.

    Volume seven of WicDiv was nothing short of phenomenal. Years worth of questions were answered in epic payoffs; fantastic art with meticulously researched details literally spanning all of time, and of course, a massive cliffhanger. But don’t get too excited opening up volume 8 – you’re not going to get any resolution just yet. This volume collects the WicDiv specials, all of which were released at different times during WicDiv’s run. That means anyone reading the issues has already seen these – Volume seven of WicDiv was nothing short of phenomenal. Years worth of questions were answered in epic payoffs; fantastic art with meticulously researched details literally spanning all of time, and of course, a massive cliffhanger. But don’t get too excited opening up volume 8 – you’re not going to get any resolution just yet. This volume collects the WicDiv specials, all of which were released at different times during WicDiv’s run. That means anyone reading the issues has already seen these – but for a trade reader like me, it was my first time. McKelvie and Gillen acknowledge this in their forward and include original release dates for each special, if you’d prefer to read in chronological release order. Each special – aside from the funnies – focuses on a particular pantheon and therefore period of history. They cover. lot of ground including ancient Rome, the black plague, the Romantic writers, and the 1920’s, along with lots of different guest artists, particularly the last two specials. Each period was chosen with intention, relating to WicDiv’s ongoing themes of power and betrayal, hero worship and art – which comes out in each issue with varying degrees of subtlety. (All good though.) The specials focus a lot on Ananke and Lucifer, and while nothing big was given away, there were some nice things teased or even revealed (such as Lucifer and Amaterasu’s past relationship before godhood). It was neat to see which gods remained more consistent, who changed genders (conclusion: most of the queer characters, is that a bad thing?), and how their personalities both fit the time and also remained consistent. But I personally didn’t find most of the stories particularly affecting or interesting. There was some extreme gore and disturbing stuff in the first issue that set me off for the rest of the book. I didn’t find my investment in characters I already love, or don’t care for, changing all that much. I was surprised that Persephone took a backseat. And it was a disappointment that the most visually interesting special, set in the 1920’s (and a lovely homage to Agatha Christie), was largely written in prose. Disclaimer, though: I have been reading this series off and on for years. It’s entirely possible that, not unlike volume 7 (which had me pulling practically every volume off the shelves to reference and cross-check like some goddamn graduate school essay), I missed a lot, and some small details or reveals went completely over my head. This could also be because I’m technically reading them out of order too. Someday, I’ll go back and reread everything, and maybe I’ll update with a more glowing or understanding review. The Christmas Annual was basically fluff where everyone gets it on. I mean just, just lots. Like, definitely don’t read in a public place, lots. Guest artist (and one of my faves) Kris Anka just has no censor to worry about, and just…well, there it is, and wow. In my opinion he should have done the whole damn issue. That guy knows how to draw a sexy time. That’s all I’ll say. And the funnies were actually a pretty cute and amusing collection of vignettes not meant to be taken literally or really exist in the WicDiv universe. The creators make fun of themselves and their work in a way that only people who have been working on the same story for many years could. The humor – even when it misses – is still refreshing from the metaphor-laden and often gory material. Finally, shout out to letterer Clayton Cowles. Aside from Gillen, he is I believe the one member of the creative team consistent across all the issues, and the way he letters the different eras is just brilliant. Everything was super easy to read, including script fonts (this is a problem in comics so often, I can’t even), and some of the typefaces he chose really gave the characters, especially Lucifer, a real texture to their dialogue. Cowles – in this series – is the reason why I became aware of the crucial (and unsung) role letterers play in comics, and it really shines in this volume. Wic Div’s eighth and penultimate volume might be an interlude but it’s still worth reading for invested fans. While not my favorite of the series it’s still a worthwhile installment as lots of small pieces come together. This creative team is nothing short of brilliant – nothing can change my mind about that – and I sincerely hope this isn’t the last story we see from them.

    The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 8 is a collection of six special issues, four of which feature the endings of the previous Pantheons: 1) set in 455 AD, originally published after the issue 28; 2) set in 1373 AD, originally published after the issue 39; 3) set in 1831 AD, originally published after the issue 22; 4) set in 1923 AD, originally published after the issue 33, written mostly in prose; 5) Christmas Annual, originally published after the issue 33, features "deleted scenes" from the series; 6) Th The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 8 is a collection of six special issues, four of which feature the endings of the previous Pantheons: 1) set in 455 AD, originally published after the issue 28; 2) set in 1373 AD, originally published after the issue 39; 3) set in 1831 AD, originally published after the issue 22; 4) set in 1923 AD, originally published after the issue 33, written mostly in prose; 5) Christmas Annual, originally published after the issue 33, features "deleted scenes" from the series; 6) The Funnies, originally published after the issue 39, consists of a bunch of random skits. The stories in this volume, especially the historical pieces, one of which has 20+ pages of TEXT, are not very engaging and they don't further the plot of the series in any way. [EDIT: Oops, my bad! After reading Vol. 9, it appears that they do further the plot. So pay attention :)]. They do, however, nod to/play with certain historical figures and events: - the Vandals' sacking of Rome (455 AD); - the Plague (1373 AD); - Claire Claremont, Lord Byron, Mary and Percy Shelley at Lake Geneva (1831 AD); - Modernist poets trapped in Agatha Christie's mystery novel (1923 AD). Cool, I guess, but... just give me the last story arc already! On the other hand, I did enjoy the Christmas Annual, which features the current Pantheon and covers some random events of little importance that were briefly mentioned (or not) throughout the series but were never shown or elaborated upon (i.e., how Nergal met Dionysus before they were gods). I also enjoyed most of the skits in the last issue, especially the one in which all the gods are dogs, and the one that highlights "5 Things Everyone Who's Lived With Sakhmet Will Understand." Finally, I'm a bit surprised but I didn't mind that different issues were drawn by different guest artists. Since the stories weren't directly related and most of them took place in different centuries, different art styles seemed very appropriate. 455 AD: 1373 AD: 1831 AD: 1923 AD: Christmas Annual: The Funnies:

    Collecting the specials, in chronological order – meaning readers of the trades will have a very different experience to singles readers, who got them dotted between arcs in quite another order. My experience of the latter approach was...well, they certainly answered some of the questions the main arc was begging (given the death of the gods seems generally to come about through violence, could one of them just...not get killed? What happens then?). But at the same time they also reminded me of Collecting the specials, in chronological order – meaning readers of the trades will have a very different experience to singles readers, who got them dotted between arcs in quite another order. My experience of the latter approach was...well, they certainly answered some of the questions the main arc was begging (given the death of the gods seems generally to come about through violence, could one of them just...not get killed?

Are the gods tribute acts to the famous artists they resemble, or do they replace them in the timeline? If the latter, why are things not more different in this world, and if the former, why doesn't it get mentioned more? Because either way, when you push eg that famous night at the Villa Diodati from 1816 to 1831...well, either you've deformed a crucial current in European literary history, or we're reading about a superpowered re-enactment society. And yet, as with the rest of the series, it's beautiful. I may not buy the situation, but dear heavens it looks gorgeous, and if you go along with that given, there's not a false note to the interactions which ensue, only an unflinching eye for the many ways in which fascinating people can do terrible, stupid things to each other once the pressure is on. And isn't it always? Because, like these gods staring down the barrel of imminent death, we're all on a clock. As well as the historicals, the collection also has the deleted scenes of the Christmas Special – some beautiful moments, for varying definitions of 'beauty', between the series' main pantheon – and the questionably canonical but emphatically hilarious comedy special. TBH, even if the whole rest of the series was just set-up for The Wicked + the Canine (the gods reborn as dogs), then the punchline was worth the whole thing. (I thought about adding a 'shaggy dog story' line there, but having only read The Funnies last night, I'm punned out)

    A mostly innocuous series of Wicked + Divine stories. We get interesting looks at the gods in different eras, but the only one of them that's truly notable is 1923 AD. The glimpse at the gods at the edge of our technological age is pretty neat. Beyond that, I'm not a big fan of stories with heavy text components, but Gillen does decently with the exercise, and it allows him to tell a much larger story: basically, a miniseries about the last days of the 1923AD gods.

    Not the strongest volume in the collection. Honestly, probably my least favorite volume. This one focuses a lot more on the history and there are full pages of text which became tedious to read. But it was interesting to continue to put the pieces together of this story and it made me so excited to read the final volume.

    A detour from the main story, to collect the special issues. Most of them are set in different historical eras, and they're uniformly great. My favorite was the 1831 issue, with obviously Byron and obviously Shelley and, most importantly, obviously Mary Shelley and obviously Claire Clairmont, Mary's step-sister. Perfect choices for the pantheon, and a great use of Frankenstein. The Christmas issue is not at all Christmas but still great fun.

It's the one low spot in the book.

    I appreciate getting all the special issues put together in a collection and being able to enjoy WicDiv in its various storytelling forms and illustration styles. Some of the stories in this are engaging and fleshes out the mytho of this universe. Yet, this volume of the series illustrates just how uneven The Wicked + the Divine is - Volume 7 was surely a return to form, and that tension gets broken by a random collection right before the final chapter.

    The oldest con in the world continues, so that life can go on. This is a hard collection to read - a lot of things-that-aren't-standard and iterations of previous storylines.

    This continues to be a good series, and I like that we get to see the past pantheons a bit in this. I liked Lucifer as a nun, it was a really good story. Still really confused about some things, but we'll see how the last arc wraps em all up. This continues to be a good series, and I like that we get to see the past pantheons a bit in this.

    The first 3/4 was an absolute chore to get through. While I appreciated the Agatha Christie inspired story I did not enjoy reading a story written as text. I read graphic novels when I don't want to or can't read books so this was especially painful. Some of the later stories were cute but nothing struck me as very meaningful.

    This was an odd duck of a collection. This is a collection of stories by different artists exploring the past of the pantheon. This has nothing to do with the main story line so it could be skipped but some of the stories are great. Being a collection the stories do flip flop and not all of them landed for me. The last section of “funny” stories was the worst. Skip that and read the rest - I found it more entertaining than the main plot which is losing my interest.
