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.
This is a beautifully painted tale of the near-future which explores the reality and mythology of superheroes.What happens when the super-powerful offspring of today's heroes inherit their parent's powers but not their sense of moral responsibility? And what place is left to ordinary humans in a world filled with the progeny of superheroes, a world where even the Olympics have been abandoned because human feats of endurance pale compared to meta-humans.
Eisner award-winning artist Alex Ross provides an amazing new cover painting for this new edition of the classic Kingdom Come.
