It's getting a. It convoluted. ( )

I have read other reviews of this collection and most of them have been less than enthusiastic. I actually really enjoyed this volume as it filled in a lot of the story and rounded out a lot of the characters. ( )

Description: After the detonation of FANDEMONIUM the gods-as-pop-stars of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE try living in the long dark shadow. Team WicDiv are joined by a stellar cast of guest artists to put the spotlight of each of the gods. The multiple Eisner-award nominated series continues in the only way it knows how: darker, weirder, faster. Don't worry. It's going to be okay. Collects issues 12-17.

Thoughts: This was better than Vol 2 in a story telling sense. Rather than press on with the plot in the same fashion from the previous two volumes, this one slows the story down to focus on the gods themselves. Each chapter does progress the main story a bit, but it does it by revealing backstory and pertinent inside information about the gods. It's enjoyable even if some of the chapters are a bit short.

The MAJOR downside is that Jamie Mckelvie's amazing art is missing from the whole volume. He was apparently pulled away by something else and so they brought in guest artists, a different one for each chapter. There isn't anything particularly bad about the art, it's just not right here. Mckelvies art sets the PERFECT tone to this story and these guest artists don't fit. It's a shame.

The second volume ended with a WHAAAATTT??! and this DID NOT pick up where that left off. The momentum from that ending was gone in the third volume. Instead there are guest artists and some insight into individual gods. The introduction/development of characters previously unseen was interesting, but then those characters quickly disappeared. And there's still little explanation as to what in the world is going on (or if there was explanation, it was just made more confusing by all of the jumping around). More than a little annoying...are the creators bored with their own creation? Are they trying to pull an Ananke? Did they need a break? ( )

The Wicked + The Divine, Vol.3: Commercial Suicide collects issues 12-17. While Jamie McKelvie is away, playing in another sandbox (actually drawing the third installment of Phonogram), Gillen recruited some new and laureate artists (Tula Lotay, Brandon Graham, among others) to make a third transitional act of TW+TD. In this book, each chapter is (almost) dedicated to one character but intertwining a story and broadening the picture of the mystery around the gods and their murders.

I am in this bandwagon until the end!

This a Galley very well received from Netgalley. ( )
