The final issue of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s The Wicked + The Divine arrives Sept. 4. Gillen discussed how he feels about reaching the end of the series in his email newsletter this week:
How does it feel to be finished?
It’s complicated, but good complicated. Jamie’s done incredible work. Matt’s done incredible work. Clayton’s done incredible work. I’m happy with the final issue. It’s incredibly strange to see the final beat which I first explained to Chrissy way back in 2014 actually there, on the page.
The strangest, most natural thing is how it’s creeping into the world. Friends who are close readers now have the full picture. I’ve had a friend at Comixology message me that she has the pages, and has read it. It’ll be with others soon. This idea which was just ours becoming everyone is magical and humbling.
I really can’t wait for you to read it.
