The Wicked + The Divine 1831 by Kieron GillenAn interesting addition to the series, though it does nothing to shed any light on what is happening in the modern day incarnation. It was very beautiful to read, the oil painting look of some panels adding marvelously to the atmosphere of rain and dismal weather. I was also interesting from a literary stance, with hints toward gothic writers but no mention of their names (though the hints were easy enough to follow). While it was nice, I dont think it adds anything to the series, so taking a pass on it wont be a loss.
The Wicked + The Divine 1831 (One-Shot)
This was also true for Claire Clairmont, stepsister of Mary Shelley and casualty of the hedonistic free-love idealism that, as she would write later in life, turned her lovers into monsters. This is, after all, a book that promises from the onset that its pantheon of young gods will be loved and hated, and within two years, will be dead. The lyricism of artist Stephanie Hans is ideal for a story about the remaining Romantic-era pantheon whiling their last hours away on that fateful night at Lake Geneva. She adds to the mix of visual cues a distinctive textural change, from silky and painterly to linework that appears almost etched or woodcut, indicating a shift in time and place within the narrative. From its first arc, WicDiv has been one mystery after another.
Every 90 years, 12 gods return as young people. They are loved. They are hated. And in two years, they are dead. Thus is the nature of the cycle. Much like the opening issue of the original WicDiv , series, centers around death, albeit in a far more intimate way compared to how the gods of the 20th century went out. The third arc of the main WicDiv series set a precedent for fantastic guest artists dropping in for just one issue, making the arc feel eclectic and singular with each passing chapter, while still keeping things grounded within the established universe.
“MODERN ROMANCE” Critically-acclaimed THE WICKED + THE DIVINE goes back to the nineteenth century, to see what became of the Romantic poets one infamous night on Lake Geneva. Showcasing STEPHANIE HANS (Journey Into Mystery, Angela), this special is NOT included in the forthcoming.

The Wicked + The Divine: 1831
Some of the names are familiar, like Lucifer, Morrigan, and Woden, but the human identities of the Pantheon are very different and are some of the greatest creative talents in English literature. Unfortunately, William Blake is dead at the time of the story. The story is set at a beautiful Lake Geneva house where supposedly Mary Shelley came up with the idea for Frankenstein. In this comic, Gillen and Hans connect the fleeting revolutionary imagination of the Romantics to the short lifespans of the gods of WicDiv. They become gods and then die after two years.
Illustrated by guest artist Stephanie Hans , it focuses on the s Pantheon , who are based on writers of the Romantic era. The issue was released on 21 September , and will eventually be collected in a trade with the other specials at the end of the run. The year is Hades lays dying in a house in Rome, watched over by Ananke as she listens to his delirious mutterings. She raises a dagger to his heart.
Well, this was a horrorshow to get done. It took me forever to write the thing, there were all sorts of other problems in production and Stephanie had to work a nightmarish deadline to get it all together. Looking at the pages, I can see the febrile energy that bubbles off the pages, which is probably useful and very much the point. I hope the next Special is easier. Though wishing for that kind of thing never seems to work out in WicDiv. That it is very much WicDiv worried me slightly.
