In Elseworlds, heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places — some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. Set 20 years into the future of the DC Universe, just after the dawn of the 21st Century, in a world spinning inexorably out of control, comes this grim tale of youth versus experience, a tradition versus change, while asking the timeless question: what defines a hero? Kingdom Come is riveting story in which the old guard - old-school heroes like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and their peers confront a new generation of irresponsible and uncompromising superhero newcomers who are as dangerous and violent as the villains they oppose. Superman and Batman must fight in a disastrous superhuman war which could determine the fate of the planet. One of the great tales of the DC Universe - The old heroes fight the new in an alternate earth battle of Armageddon - Includes all four chapters, character sketches, additional artwork and more..
The main attraction is Alex Ross' lush, ultrarealistic, painted artwork.
