Ananke-spoiler "Once again, we return."

This article contains spoilers for Issue 33 of The Wicked + The Divine. Read at your own risk.

This is a timeline of all major events within the world of The Wicked + The Divine.

As Kieron Gillen pointed out in issue 36, many of the Recurrences didn't necessarily occur were Persephone and Ananke have their encounters, so the location of the recurrences which are not featured in Specials, are not exactly where the main recurrence is taking place.
