The silver lining to waiting nearly two years to act on friends’ recommendations that I check out this clever, visually-stunning exploration of celebrity, fandom and faith was that I was able to binge my way through the collected story arcs. Gillen and McKelvie postulate a pantheon of a dozen international gods who manifest in mortal teens every 90 years, bestowing worship-worthy talents upon them, and a very finite lifespan – two years after ascendance. This is a story best experienced, rather than described, that makes fabulous use of the format. Four collected volumes are available.

"the story is beautifully drawn and
populated with characters of color, diverse gender, and sexual identities, and you have my full undivided attention." -- Kirkus
