Shotgun Wedding #3 Review: Minor Objections

By: Nicole D’Andria The tension continues to build in the latest issue of the Shotgun Wedding mini-series.

Who Are The Wicked & The Divine?

By: Nicole D’Andria At the Image Comics Expo fans were hoping to hear that Kieron Gillen (Three, Young Avengers) and Jamie McKelvie (Suburban Glamour, Young Avengers) were continuing their popular Phonogram series with a third series. Unfortunately, they were disappointed. Instead, Gillen and McKelvie announced they were going to be the creative team on a new Image comic book: The Wicked & The Divine. I get the frustration of fans who were disappointed that they weren’t getting Phonogram 3. But they can rejoice because Gillen and McKelvie are still planning…
