Jim (jkmfilms) | 36 comments I've found some books that should not be combined, and am not sure how to proceed.

Kingdom Come (DC Comics) by Mark Waid and Alex Ross was published in 4 issues in 1996. Afterwards, it was published in a collected set. Elliot S. Maggin wrote the foreword.

Separately, Elliot S. Maggin wrote a prose (novel) adaptation of the books.

These are 2 completely different things, should not be combined as separate editions of the same book, but seem to have been combined on Goodreads. It's a bit confusing, as one has an introduction by Maggin, but the other was written by Maggin.

Not sure how they should be separated.

As far as I can tell, the following are the prose novel, and should be separated from the comic book / graphic novel:

I tried to search this group to see if there was a request to combine these, but couldn't. I know these weren't all combined a year ago (I rated the 2 things separately, and reviewed the novel).
