    Magnificent..

    Alex Ross has done very good artwork, on many different books, but I think this is his magnum opus. The art is truly unbelievable, page after page of painted masterwork, its incredible. The story is no slouch either,
    its follows the exploits of all DC's famed heroes, in a not to distant future, where everything has changed, for the worse. Despite the sense of
    inevitable doom, Kingdom Come is actually a very hopefull story. It shows that in a world where black and white are slowly blurring, just leave it to DC's finest and it will be alright. The book also quotes heavily from the biblical book of Revelation, now of course much of the quotes are taken completely out of context, but that adds somewhat of a deeper element to the narrative. But the book even has a heavy message about the Bible itself, pointing out that despite the constant endtimes predictions the Bible is open to interpretation, something alot of religious zealots would profit from knowing, altogether Kingdom Come, is profound and worth your time and money, Cheers.

    After Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Alan Mo

    After Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Alan Moore's Watchmen, this is my 3rd favorite graphic novel of all time. It's a great story with wonderful artwork, some of the best I've ever seen.

    It's set in the future, when the sons, daughters and even grandchildren of Earth's mightiest heroes have inherited the Earth and their parents have thrown up their hands in disgust and either left or gone into hiding. Unfortunately, due to how powerful they are, there are no more "villains" to speak of, so they pretty much just fight amongst themselves in battles that put ordinary citizens in danger. Coming out of a self-imposed exile, Superman returns and reunites the old Justice League in an attempt to reign in the younger generation and restore peace to the world. But, will he succeed or will he lead the world to Armageddon? You'll have to read to find out.
