Gillen and McKelvie launch ‘The Wicked and The Divine’

Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie will launch their new comic The Wicked and The Divine at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 18th June at 6pm. The comic features an exclusive Forbidden Planet cover.

Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as teenagers. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critically thermonuclear floor-fillers Young Avengers and Phonogram reunite to start a new ongoing superhero fantasy with a beautiful oversized issue. Welcome to The Wicked & The Divine, where gods are the ultimate pop-stars. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.

Writer Kieron Gillen has various well-known works under his belt, including Phonogram: The Singles Club and Young Avengers.

Artist Jamie McKelvie worked with Gillen on Phonogram and has gone on to create modern iconic designs like Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and Miss America.
