really liked it

Superman's gone into retirement and other legendary superheroes like Batman, Flash etc. are past their prime. In their absence the younger lot of superheroes, without the same moral compass or sense of responsibility, have fallen into the abyss of ego and anarchy. With no one to stop them they are out to wield their powers on the weaker humans and even against each other. The world is on the brink of a great battle as the humans are up in arms against the 'superheroes'. Only one man stands between doom and peace- Superman. It is upon him to use his powers both physical and moral, to rein in the new kids on the block, and at the same time to convince the humans that peace can be attained without complete annihilation of the super heroes. It is this conflict that makes 'Kingdom Come' a really special graphic novel.

'Kingdom Come' by Mark Waid, with illustrations by Alex Ross is an epic mini series that questions the possession of power without responsibility and without conscience. The story by Mark Waid is gripping and the treatment is extremely mature. The artwork by Alex Ross is surreal and stunning. The combination makes this series an absolute epic.
