Deep Sequencing: One Wickedly Divine Plot Map

Or a radial plot map of The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 1
by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Matt Wilson, and Clayton Cowles; Image Comics

The Wicked + The Divine is one of my favourite comics right now. It is a comic that does everything well and is a showcase for the many ways you can encode information into sequential art. It's also a comic with a pretty great design aesthetic and a chapter intro/recap page that has a really great character/plot diagram. One that I thought would lend itself to a unique plot diagram of the entire first volume.

Or put another way, it's infographic time!

Since it's a plot map there will be *SPOILERS* for WicDiv Vol. 1 below.
