Friday Comics Chat Open Thread - KINGDOM edition
Hey everybody! Take a seat, get comfortable and LET'S TALK COMICS. I have something a bit different this week. Alert customer Steve R. pointed out a book to Manager Ken that most of us have overlooked... DC's THE KINGDOM, written by Mark Waid with art by various artists. Here's a summary from DC's webpage:
Continuing to look at a possible future of the DC Universe and it heroes, the young boy who survived the holocaust that consumed the farmlands of Kansas has grown up and judged Superman at fault for the destruction that he lived through. Using newly granted powers, Gog has set out on a mission to remove Superman from existence throughout all of time. Now it is up to the children of Batman, Robin, Flash, and Plastic Man to work together to save the Man of Steel and the world from the madman's quest.
Have any of you out there read this book? When it came out, I skipped over it, thinking that NOTHING could follow the incredible KINGDOM COME. Steve R. has pointed out that this book may actually be a lead-in to the events of the current INFINITE CRISIS! What do you think? Have you read this?
