It’s been too long. Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie have been taking a well-earned break between releases for their Eisner-nominated smash hit, THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, for Image Comics.
Not that they’ve been resting on their laurels, mind. Gillen in particular has been keeping his customary busy self, with a whole slew of releases: MERCURY HEAT, with Nahuel Lopez for Avatar Press, the on-going DARTH VADER with Salvador Larocca and Edgar Delgado for Marvel Comics, and then there’s his upcoming pet project, the MODDED strip to be found in Alan Moore‘s heavily hyped CINEMA PURGATORIO anthology.
However, when you’ve got a juggernaut like WICDIV to service – and with a rampant fandom, baying for more – any teases for the first issue of the next volume are eagerly welcomed.
Kieron posted to his Tumblr two trade preview pages for Vol. 4, along with the variant cover for Issue #18. Courtesy of Image Comics, AEISD has been provided the hi-res pics above, as well as the official cover – very tasty!
