Tim + Alex Get TWATD #43: “Heroes” + “Villains”

Once more, we return with two essays on the latest issue of The Wicked + The Divine. Issue #43 brought us another step closer to the series’ conclusion, with a number of the final plot points falling into place. Tim takes a look at how these revelations fit in with the themes we’ve previously explored, while Alex has a big ol’ think about WicDiv’s succession of villains.

Spoilers all the way up to the end of issue #43, after the cut.

One Week One Comic: War of the Realms #1

Alex: Every Wednesday on Twitter, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. It’s called #oneweekonecomic, and I’m collating each thread into its own blog post.

This week, it’s Jason Aaron/Russell Dauterman/Matt Wilson’s WAR OF THE REALMS #1. This is Marvel’s big crossover event, and Tim has been documenting his readthrough of Aaron’s Thor run on this very blog. So the two of us teamed up to tackle this issue a page at a time.

Spoilers relatively light, and our commentary cuts off before the final reveals, but the page-by-page nature mean you should be able to safely duck out if things start to get too spicy at any point.
