Kevin Wada On Dressing The Gods of 'The Wicked & The Divine'
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.

Everything Comes To A Head In 'Darth Vader' #25 [Preview]
Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca's Darth Vader series has stretched the bounds of what was thought possible with a villain-centric comic, and perhaps most impressively of all, it managed to cohesively link the Vader of the prequels with the Vader of the original trilogy in a convincing and compelling fashion. Over the past two years, the creators have taken Vader on a perilous journey into becoming his own man and learning to slowly defy the Emperor, and in December's Darth Vader #25 everything comes to its epic conclusion. Marvel has sent out an unlettered preview featuring Vader, Aphra, and of course Emperor Palpatine, to whet our appetites ahead of the finale.

Along with artists such as Canaan White, Gabriel Andrade, and current artist Daniel Gete, Gillen has built a rich and detailed world where the Nazis breakthrough in creating supermen turned the tide of the war forever. The first volume of Uber ended on a major cliffhanger, and yesterday Avatar Press launched a Kickstarter to raise funds towards the next volume of the title --- titled Uber: Invasion --- which sees the superpowered soliders of Nazi Germany heading the invasion of the United States of America.
