The Wicked and the Divine: The Faust Act

The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 1: The Faust Act - Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie

Another graphic novel, another one I've heard raves about, with good reason. Every 90 years, twelve gods become incarnate as humans. Some people love them, some people hate them, within 2 years they are all dead. This is the story of what happens when they come back. It's a freaking fascinating idea, and the story is strong. The illustrations in this book are gorgeous, and the characters are complex and interesting. I feel like I'm just scratching the surface of what graphic novels have to offer, but if they are consistently this good I think I've found a new genre. This series is definitely more adult, so reader beware, but I'm hooked.
