Set in the not so distant future, Batman is retired, Superman is in a self-imposed exile and the rest of the Justice League nowhere to be found, it seems that all hope is lost. The DC Universe is spinning inexorably out of control. The new generation of heroes has lost their moral compass, becoming just as reckless and violent as the villains they fight. But not for long. Mark Waid and Alex Ross's generational masterwork is now released as a part of DC's prestigious new imprint of standalone graphic novels, DC Black Label.
Mark Waid, a New York Times best-selling author, has written a wider variety of well-known comics characters than any other American comics author, from Superman to the Justice League to Spider-Man to Archie and hundreds of others. His award-winning graphic novel with artist Alex Ross, Kingdom Come, is one of the best-selling comics collections of all time.
"One of the best comic stories ever told." --Washington Examiner
"No library should be without some edition of this book." --Library Journal (Starred Review) "With art that looks like a hybrid of Norman Rockwell and Jack Kirby, artist Ross has become the preeminent painter of superheroes of his generation." --Publishers Weekly
