Kingdom Come (Comic Review)

As with the last book review this is posted in full on and this is simply a preview. If you want to see it in full then please follow the link through to there.

The first thing toreally credit here is that absolutely everything driven by characterisationclicks into place. Usually with Elseworlds or big events there’s the problem inwhich you need to have someone act out of character or like an idiot to get theball rolling (Civil War anyone?) butin this everything works. Events like having Superman leave due to the publicembracing the ideals he has decried for decades is something which feelsentirely in character and why the public would support them is understandable.After all if you had a killer clown repeatedly breaking out of a mental asylumeach week, killing hundreds only to be put back inside again, wouldn’t yousupport the person who permentatly took him down? Even when the story goes sofar to have the president order a nuclear strike dropped on a battle, it’sclearly a hard choice he does not want to make and never manages to demonisethe government itself for this act. Something remarkable considering just howmany big names die in that blast.
