It is no secret that I deeply love The Wicked + The Divine. After a whirlwind of gods and goddess in young adult form, Volume #3 confronts the dark secrets of The Morrigan and Baphomet. Like the first two volumes before it, Commercial Suicide blends the past and present of our characters while the clock runs out on their powers. For those who have not delved into the two previous collections, do so immediately; we’ll wait.
My favorite part of this collection was that the writers finally delved into the complicated past of The Morrigan and Baphomet. Though they’ve obviously been close through the whole series, we see them now as the dorky goth teenagers they were before their change into a goddess and god. As a former goth teenager, this was a welcome thought.
As with all previous collections, The Wicked + The Divine: Commercial Suicide is emotional with deeply compelling story telling. The graphics are strong and beautiful, but the majority of the fun in this series is seeing which gods and goddesses appear and how they use their powers while still dealing with the past before their changes.
The Wicked + The Divine: Commercial Suicide is now available from Image Comics.
