“The Wicked The Divine: Imperial Phase (1 and 2)” feels like more anticipation with less pay-off.
While I find the series' premise and story engaging many of the structural choices grate. Few of the larger mysteries are explored and hints from the end of the last arc are barely addressed. It feels very much like a soap opera, where the emphasis draws out scenes rather than advance the story.

The focus is on the characters and their struggles is tonally similar to the other volumes. The characters don’t differentiate themselves enough to be interesting and most fall into the unlikable category. Some are still dynamic, but focused on the central idea of what being a god but dying in 2 years would do to a person. Laura also stagnates. While she made interesting choices in the previous arc, she reverted to simplicity here.

When the story gets going it is engaging. Unexpected at times, but well developed if you consider the whole. The continuation of the main conflict from the previous arc is especially praiseworthy and worth the occasional gripe.

The art continues the tradition of shocking panels. While the style might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it is skillful. It has some fantastic elements that keep the reader wanting more, but which also set up hurdles. ( )

I'm happy to see this series bounce back from a slump over the past few volumes and actually move the plot forward with some key revelations. ( )

at this point, the plot is a mess to an almost insulting extent and all the characters, without a single exception, have become unlikeable. i‘m finding it really hard to still care? ( )

This series continues to be a beautiful hot mess. As everything falls apart around the Pantheon, they struggle to make sense of themselves and the situation they are in. Will they be dying soon, in spite of everything? Will the Great Darkness take them all? Who has infiltrated their ranks, and for how long have they been there? It seems that the 12 Gods who have incarnated are simply the tip of the iceberg. How much did Ananke keep from them?

The chaos is fascinating, and it's a mess of mysteries I'm enjoying diving into. There's no notion of who is good and who is bad. The comics have thrown me for an absolute loop and I'm just delighting in it. It'll be hard to wait for the next volume, but I'll definitely be putting it on hold the moment the library orders it.

What a fun, if a bit ridiculous, title this is. ( )
