Content Graphic Novel Club: The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act
"Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critically thermonuclear floor-fillers Young Avengers and Phonogram reunite to start a new, ongoing pop-fantasy. Welcome to The Wicked + The Divine, where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you're immortal, doesn't mean you're going to live forever."
Hosted by comics über-geek David Wolff, this group is fun and accessible for adventurous readers who are curious about the medium, and interesting for even the most die-hard fans. Since graphic novels are quick and engrossing, this could be a great book club for you if your reading time is limited, or are looking to expand your horizons. We read a diversity of titles that show the range of the art form while giving us plenty to talk about. Selections are generally for mature readers, and are available at our usual 10% book club discount. No need to sign up, just show up!
