THE WICKED + THE DIVINE reveals variant by Stephanie Hans, early artwork

July 23, 2014

The third issue of the hit series takes a stroll on the dark side

“Not solely because of my art-crush on Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie, I had the honor of losing my shit over The Wicked + The Divine.” —Max Bemis, lead singer ofSay Anything, Polarity

The third issue of writer Kieron Gillen and artist Jamie McKelvie’s electric series THE WICKED + THE DIVINE will feature a bright and vibrant variant cover by the painterly Stephanie Hans (Journey into Mystery), but the story will veer into the shadows.

In the third issue of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, Laura has no choice, she’s made a pact with Luci and now must seek out gothest-of-gods: The Mórrígan.

New York Times bestselling writer Matt Fraction said of the series, “Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s The Wicked + The Divine is better than Young Avengers. Better than Phonogram. Better than Watchmen. Better than The Bible.”

THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #3 arrives in stores on 8/20, and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code JUN140587. The variant cover B by Stephanie Hans is available to pre-order with Diamond Code JUN148168. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is 7/28.
