The Wicked + The Divine Reveal Variant Cover


To say that The Wicked + The Divine is popular would be an understatement. Everyone loves the somewhat fractured tale of gods as pop stars and all the trappings that go along with that popularity. And keeping up with that trend, The Wicked + The Divine #3 will likely be even more popular, thanks to a variant cover by Stephanie Hans. Oh, and both Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie will come back as well.

In the third issue of The Wicked + The Divine, Laura has no choice, she’s made a pact with Luci and now must seek out gothest-of-gods: The Mórrígan. The Wicked + The Divine #3 arrives in stores on August 20 and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code JUN140587. The variant cover B by Stephanie Hans is available to pre-order with Diamond Code JUN148168. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is July 28.
