Summary on Image Comics website:
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 superhero fantasy. Welcome to THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, where gods are the ultimate pop stars. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.
Every ninety years twelve young gods return as young people. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are all dead. It's happening now. It's happening again.
The narrative follows a young teenage girl, Laura, as she interacts with the Pantheon, a group of twelve people who discover that they are reincarnated deities. This discovery grants them fame and supernatural powers, with the stipulation that they will die within two years – part of a ninety-year cycle known as the Recurrence.
I've gotten a good impression so far. The fact that many of the reincarnated gods are from different mythologies is definitely intriguing, and that many of them are popstar celebrities is a cool concept I can live with and not find too cheesy. Reviews are mostly positive about this series.
I'm only into the 2nd volume right now, and I'm loving it. Has anyone else here read it, or want to give it a go?
