Kingdom Come (New Edition)
Kingdom Come (New Edition) | Mark Waid
The unforgettable, best-selling miniseries by acclaimed writer Mark Waid and superstar painter Alex Ross returns, with a sketchbook section, annotations on the series, rare art and more! Set just after the dawn of the 21st Century in a world spinning inexorably out of control comes this grim tale of youth versus experience, tradition versus change and what defines a hero. KINGDOM COME is a riveting story pitting the old guard-Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and their peers against a new uncompromising generation and ultimately in the final war against each other to determine nothing less than the future of the planet.

First of all: can we talk about grumpy, old, pony-tailed Kal-El?
Second of all: can we talk about this gorgeous, multi-layered piece of awesome!? I wasn‘t expecting this to hit me in the feels in so many different ways, but here we are...absolutely worth the read.

TK421 This is my favorite DC comic. Alex Ross' art still blows me away. He painted every panel in this! 7mo
AshleyHoss820 @TK421 Rightfully so!! It is phenomenal art! I can‘t believe he painted every panel! That is insane! The panel of the preacher‘s hands in the beginning is frame worthy. 7mo
TK421 The character design for the preacher was his late father. 7mo
AshleyHoss820 @TK421 I read that at the end! That made it so much better! 7mo

I just finished book 3 ( the fartherst shore) of the Earthsea novels! It was sooo good, but I am gonna need to time to digest it before I start on book 4. So I think I'll read some Kingdom Come! A great superman story so far!

The artwork in this graphic novel was excellent, as I've come to expect from DC. The story, however, kind of dragged. It started out interesting, getting to see the superheroes coming back much older than we usually see them. But after awhile, they were just kind of having the same conversations and fights over and over until the end.

Kingdom Come uses motifs from the Book of Revelation to depict a dystopian future in which superheroes are at war. Waid examines the moral dilemma of using power to enforce peace.

Geez, who does this sound like?

GarthRanzz Isn‘t it funny how much of our pop culture kind of “predicted” how things are now? 2y

I have always been a Marvel over DC comics fan, but I love Kingdom Come. This is one of the great DC stories. Mark Waid at his best writing paired with the amazing skill of Alex Ross. He painted every picture in the entire series. I found this absolute edition on sale several years ago and just had to give it a good home.

For #riotgrams #somethingpretty how about any comic painted by Alex Ross? Pictured is Kingdom Come, kind of the superhero Book of Revelation. Wonder Woman is coming to tempt farm boy Clark Kent out of retirement.
