The Wicked + The Divine is Being Adapted for Television

Wicked+Divine01_CoverADeadline has reported (and their post Tweeted by the creators) that the comic series The Wicked + The Divine is heading to television. The Image Comic series by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matt Wilson is being launched by Universal Television through the deal Universal struck with fellow comic creators Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick‘s company Milkfed Criminal Masterminds. The deal between Fraction, DeConnick, and Universal has those two developing and adapting their own concepts, but also other comic creator’s ideas too.

The series is about gods as the ultimate pop stars. Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. Just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.

The Wicked + The Divine launched in June 2014 and was on 30 of the 202 different “best of” lists we tracked last year, including a few top spots. We gush about the series constantly.

Gillen has appeared on Graphic Policy Radio, which you can listen to here.

Ragnarock is finally here. The show to end all shows promises to be a lovely experience for all the gods…wait. Oh noes! Jamie and Matt have drawn Baphomet drenched in blood on the cover. What a hilarious internal communication error. I’m sure it’s a mistake and nothing to do with the story whatsoever.

Siege #1 Brings You Battleworld’s Heroic Protectors This July!

They are few against many. They are the last line of defense. They can’t ever win. They can’t afford to lose. This July, enter one of the most dangerous areas on Battleworld as Kieron Gillen and Felipe Andrade bring you Seige #1 – a brand new Secret Wars story of deadly proportions!

Welcome to the Shield, the last line of defense against the hordes to the south of Battleworld. Zombie armies, Ultron robots primed only for death, and the Annihilation Wave. The Shield is the only thing that keeps them out. To patrol the Shield is to know fear, for your end could come at any moment. To man the Shield is to put your trust in the men and women standing beside you at the edge of the world. And to trust your leader. Because if you patrol the Shield – you answer to Abigail Brand.

In an interview with Marvel.com, Gillen said:

The Shield’s purpose is to stop everything that’s south of that point going north of that point. It’s because everything south of the Shield is entirely ungovernable. They want to eat you. Being deposited on the Shield is a punishment for a mixture of people who are entirely too battle-hungry or entirely too heroic.

Now Brand and her team – Lady Katherine Bishop, Leah of Hel, Magik, Leonardo Da Vinci, Miss America Chaves, the Endless Summers and Grimm – must stand alone against unstoppable darkness. Because if they fail – everything is lost. The valiant last stand of the unsung heroes of Battleworld begins this July in Seige #1!
