The Image Comics series The Wicked And The Divine, from creators Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie, is no stranger to high fashion; the supernatural pop star drama features a pantheon of celebrity gods living the lush life, destined to burn brightly and briefly.
The series' stylish cast have created a cult following among cosplayers and comic fans, so when it was announced that issue #23 would take the form of a fashion magazine from within the WicDiv world, it was no surprise that the impossibly fashion conscious artist Kevin Wada was tapped to provide interiors. ComicsAlliance spoke to Wada about his work on the book and his approach to fashion.
With interviews by some of the most notable critics and journalists, and Kevin Wada making his interior comics debut with gorgeous illustrations that serve as the magazine's photoshoots, The Wicked + The Divine #23 is unlike any comic this year.
ComicsAlliance chatted to Kieron Gillen about the process of creating a fictional magazine and how the WicDiv team are going to top it next.
When Marvel Comics announced its new slate of books under the Marvel Now banner, one of the biggest holes in its line-up seemed to be the lack of a book featuring the fan-favorite character Ms. America Chavez. Today at New York Comic Con, the publisher finally acquiesced and unveiled plans for an ongoing title set to debut next year titled simply America.
Darth Vader, by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca, is coming to an end with issue #25. To mark the occasion, Marvel is releasing the issue with 12 different covers.
The main cover is by Juan Gimenez, and looks like it could be the poster for a Darth Vader movie. Adi Granov offers a similarly cinematic cover, which also features Doctor Aphra, BT-1, and 0-0-0, the supporting cast of the series. They appear on a few of the other covers, while the rest focus on the Dark Lord of the Sith himself.

Fans have been demanding a Ms. America series from Marvel Comics for years, and while recent teasers seemed to suggest we might get one as part of the latest incarnation of Marvel NOW, it failed to materialize. Unabashedly capitalizing on the character’s popularity, Ms. America’s creators Joe Casey and Nick Dragotta have announced a brand-new, all-original character named... America Vasquez, who will star in a new Image Comics series, All-America Comix.

One of the most notable things about queer characters in comics, especially in the heart of the superheroic mainstream, is their absence, at least on a textual level. Queer subtext, though? There's plenty of that, whether it's same-sex relationships that read as romantic, or in the use of mutants as a metaphor that can be applied to LGBTQ experiences.
Which brings us to Generation Hope #9, “Better”, by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie. It's not an issue explicitly about the LGBTQ experience, but it uses the mutant metaphor to tell a standalone story about real-life events that very much are.
