Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
With a stunning new Alex Ross wraparound cover, this special limited edition shines a new light on one of the authentic classics of the graphic novel genre. Kingdom Come first burst onto the comics scene in 1996 and almost immediately galvanized fan appreciation with its tale of an emerging struggle between vaunted superheroes and a new breed of amoral, power-hungry vigilantes. A showcase presentation of a standard setter.

    Gelati's Scoop

    Graphic Novel Friday Kingdom Come Mark Waid/Alex Ross

    The entire DC Comics gang is included in this one; mall, large it doesn't matter. If they are a considered a metahuman , they are included in this epic battle. I am just starting to get caught up in the DC world and am enjoying the writing and artwork. The twists and turns of the big three ( Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman) were very surprising to me.
    The quality of the writing and the depth of the plotline were what kept me totally enthralled with this graphic novel. The questions of right and wrong, the greater good, using one's gifts to their fullest to serve others, were questions that seemed not to be asked of most of these "Super" beings and instead were just headed down a path of total self-absorption. Superman and Company tries to set things straight and make the world safe once again for all. I don't want to expand on this much more because I don't want to spoil what is contained in the pages of the novel. It is very thought provoking and provocative; raises questions from sources I amazed me. I paused more than once to ponder the material and how it relates to my life. Thankfully I was camped out on the beach and could just stare out at the waves, letting the thoughts just wash over me .The places these seemingly simple innocent graphic novels take us is amazing . I don't hesitate to recommend reading this.

    A work of Art

    In the comics realm, you cannot get much better than Kingdom Come. From the story (dramatic, suspenseful, even heartbreaking) to the art (the most realistic drawings I have ever seen in comics), it wraps you in and doesn't let go. A definite masterpiece, extending far beyond just the art of comics.

    A fan all over again

    The way the characters shown to have changed over the years, one heroes beliefs stays the same and thats no other than Superman. He may have question himself at times but never his beliefs and the way this story is put together in words and in art you'll see that the heroes of the past and present respect him and his beliefs. As a child I was a fan and after reading this book I'm a fan once more only diffrence is now I injoy DC comics with my daughter.

    Best Graphic Novel By Far

    This is the best graphic novel I have read since I took up reading comics. The graphics are WONDERFUL and the storyline is a page turner; I couldn't put it down, and you won't either.

    A testiment to the literary maturity of comic books as opposed to the average stereo-types.

    Kingdom come is one of those few comic book stories that realy deserves more attention than just from the fanboy realm. one of the only good books that sprang from a direct result of Kurt Buseik's MARVELS, where the story of the super-hero is told through the average man. A testiment to the literary maturity of comic books as opposed to the average stereo-types.

    BEST GRAPHIC NOVEL EVER! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    I think that this is the greatest book ever, never mind the greatest graphic novel.It appeals to me because i'm a comic fan, but I would love it even if I wasn't a comic fan. (And by the way, ALEX ROSS IS THE GREATEST COMIC BOOK ARTIST EVER.)

    Best Comic Book Story.

    I enjoyed reading this book when I orginally brought the 4 part mini series in 1996. What makes a great comic book is both great art and a very well written story. I am glad it commented that heroes should stand for what is right than focus on becoming like the villians, and how heroes are supposed to behave and have a moral code. This wasn't just Superman's story, but also Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, and Captain Marvel's too. You will find everything that is in the DC Universe past and present in the pages. If you want a great story and want something that isn't x-related, I recommend this book.

    One of the best comic book stories ever!

    I used to think that Batman: The Dark Knight Returns was the best DC comic ever made (although I think that, while still a great read, was merely the opinion of other people). Then I read Kingdom Come. This is so much better that The Dark Knight Returns. While The Dark Knight Returns was a little too disturbing for my taste, Kingdom come was a little lighter and seemed to be more based on upholding morals rather than breaking them to accomplish a greater good. Also, it made me for the first time like Superman as a character. Usually, I write Superman of as an all powerful figure with no personality and yet here he and the other heroes are faced with a rather unsettling revelation. The fact that they're not fighting a particular villain like Magog or Von Bach or Lex Luthor and Captain Marvel (who is brainwashed by Luthor) but the futures they represent and the fact that the heroes' own neglect and feeling of omnipotence over regular people have in some way have helped birth that. Also, the fact that the story has the best artwork EVER doesn't hurt. If you're readed this to figure out whether or not to read this, then buy it now! If you already got it, stop reading this and find your copy and read it now!. I am boring and Kingdom Come is great!!!

    Absolutly Increadible !!!!!

    I've collected comics for over 34 years and can honestly say that this book is a priceless story in its own right. As a story set so far in the future, its mind blowing how things turned out in the superhero world. I read it twice just to see if I had missed something.

    Must Read for any comic book fan!!!

    This was a book I could not put down once I started. Great artwork from front to back. Alex Ross has outdone himself. The tensions between Kal-el, Diana, and Bruce Wayne are so thick you can cut it with a knife. You never know what to expect on each page and which way the plot will drop you next. Great reading. A comic book lover's delight since you get to see a lot of your favorite characters older and wiser for all their years of being heroes.

    This is a comic for all ages. new and old readers will understand the whole story.

    As a superman fan growing up I always wanted to envision my hero going up against all odds and still fight for the American way of life. and this story is an example of just that. From the unique mix of charectors to the also unique mix of villians you almost dont know who to root for. And then you see the story for what it is. An adaption of the book of revelation put into a context evryone will understand.

    The Futures Heroes Today

    The whole concept of Kingdom Come was almost mindboggling to me at first. This has got to be one of the greatest graphic stories/novels I have ever read. To determine what truly makes a man a hero is a difficult task but it has been done in this incredible book. To see the big 3 (Kal, Di and Bruce) often at odds w/ each other yet empassioned so strongly about what they are trying to do in training up these young 'heroes' was incredible. Like everyone has stated, the art is absolutely awesome and the story line even more so. It really makes me wonder if another story of this level could come again in my lifetime.

    In my humble opinion...

    Suffice it to say that the art work on this Hall of Famer was so acclaimed that Alex Ross actually had it on exhibition at a prominent gallery in Greenwich Village, NYC. Waid's story itself is as captivating as they come and is so exactly complimented by Ross' somber images. What I enjoyed most about this story is the moral gray area that it explores in defining what constitutes heroism. Could it in fact be the case that the JLA's mores had outlived their usefulness in an increasingly violent world? Could Superman's aversion to death of any kind be tantamount to Super-Mansuetude in a society that preferred its champions bloody? These are only two of the many issues the reader grapples with. My only complaint is that it could have been longer... somewhat more akin (in terms of duration and development)to Marvel's current limited series, Earth X or 1995's Age of Apocalypse (marvel). STILL, this is a comic masterpiece of the first order... who said comics are low art?
