Compared to many forms of media, comic books (and books in general) have one feature many can’t advocate: immersion. When you’re reading a comic, you have to hold it in your hand, to study it, to linger on it, to briefly become part of it. As more and more comics go digital, one would think that feature would unfortunately fade- but not if the creators of The Wicked + The Divine are going to help it. With guest artist Tula Lotay, Kieron Gillen and the rest of Team WicDiv spend this month’s issue exploring the elusive Tara, previously unseen- and with it they present a terrifying, somber look at our world today, particularly the natures of fandom and social media, using a number of clever formatting tricks to truly help us understand who Tara is.
