The Wicked + The Divine Volume 1 by Kieron Gillen and Jamie Mckelvie

23093359This was an interesting read; apparently every 90 years gods take possession of a mortal vessel. They can live in this world for two years and then die (well that's getting the short end of the stick) to begin the cycle all over again. While here they all become music sensations with a trope of followers all over. 

The story follows Laura, a college student (who never shows up for class) as she follows these god music sensations all over her city. While at a concert she meets Lucifer, who also goes by Luci and she eventually sets out to prove Luci didn't kill a Judge. After that things just get crazy and that ending; you will definitely want to be checking into the next volume.

Oh and in case I completely forgot to mention this, the "gods" are from an array of myths and you obviously noticed the "Lucifer" thing; some of these "gods" have the names of fallen angels. You know, fallen angels, the ones cast from heaven into a fiery abyss. You'll definitely have some fun with this creative story.
