The Wicked + The Divine has remained one of the most intriguing, trail-blazing comics to engage new audiences in the last decade, unfolding one hell of an ambitious story of belief. A cutting analysis of pop culture and devotion, the title follows a reckless group of kids imbued with the divinity of various multi-cultural deities. Instead of cultivating lasting change with their followers, the new gods fight, fornicate and perform grand musical ceremonies. In other words, you can put the almighty in a teenager, but you can’t take the teenager out of the almighty. With this sprawling epic wrapping its first in-story year, Sean chatted with the creative team of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con about religion’s relationship with music, how the fictional cast matches against their real-life equivalents and the perils of working out at convention hotels.
