Image Comics dropped us a quick email to let us know that Becky Cloonan is providing the variant cover for the upcoming Wicked + The Divine #5. The publisher was even nice enough to send along that very cover to share with you!
THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #5 marks the end of the first story arc and is an action-packed finale that will rip the rug out from underneath readers who thought they’d had everything figured out. It’s showtime.
“Put it like this: it’s the climax of the first story,” said Gillen in a prepared press release. “It’s the climax. The aim is to let loose those martian-metal fireworks in your head and burn it into your cortex forever. If people open up your skull they’ll find I REALLY LIKED THE END OF THE FIRST THE WICKED + THE DIVINE STORY written on your grey matter in neat letters. That’s what we’re shooting at. We can’t wait for people to read it.”
The Wicked + The Divine #5 arrives October 22, 2014.
