The Faust Act is over. Welcome to Fandemonium. The second arc of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE begins with issue #6 in its traditional manner (i.e. a ludicrous pun) and something like “nothing will ever be the same again.” But if you think about it, you can say that about literally everything, ever. Also, some comic story. Probably.


My Review:

*contains slight spoilers*

This is the first issue of the six issue arc named Fandemonium. Continuing from the ending of the first arc, 'The Faust Act', this issue explores not only who killed one of the gods, but what comes next and who the next two gods that are left to emerge will be. 

We're introduced to Inanna, who looks a lot like Prince and according to him, is the "queen of heaven, both the morning and evening star" and wants to team up with Laura since he doesn't trust any of the other gods in his circle. 

This is a must slower issue than the previous one and it's a more internal look into Laura and the trauma she has over Lucifer's death. 

Look at the purple rain! 

A lot has been set up in this issue, from the two gods left that need to debut, who killed Lucifer, and Laura's own powers and what they mean/how they really work.
