Absolute Kingdom Come Rocks

Kingdom Come is a 1996 4 issue mini-series published by DC. Written by Mark Waid with great art by Alex Ross (who hasn’t done much interior work since, just covers) it follows a possible future of the DC Universe. Superman is retired, Batman is broken and a cavalcade of new “heroes” and villains have taken their place, causing death and destruction whenever they fight. Seen through the eyes of preacher Norman McCay, with The Spectre as his guide, it is a love letter to DC’s characters with biblical imagery and questions about heroism. In short, I love it, and since we’re talking about it in this week’s Extra Sequential podcast, I thought I’d use it as an excuse to show a few pages from the hefty, oversized Absolute edition.
