This novel is of course based off the outstanding graphic novel done by Mark Waid and Alex Ross and is its eual in every way While it may not have the visuals that the comic provided it adds a depth

Maggin ¿ 9 Read & Download Read Kingdom Come O guide him Kingdom Come is the story of what defines a hero in a world spinning inexorably out of controlof the heroes who adapted to that changing world and those who couldn'tof personal battles fought with inner demons and the final war that would determine the fate of our planet. I ve not read the comic but I know it by reputation I ve started it once digitally decided a tablet was not really the proper way to enjoy Alex Ross beautiful art and Mark Waid s wordy script In the meantime before I get my hands on a physical copy of the comic I ve given the novelization a goFrom what I gather Elliot S Maggin retained the story closely but it just doesn t work in novel mediumYou the reader are following the protagonist as he goes from scene to scene literally in extra corporeal form and watches the superheroes or metahumans as they re called here The protagonist is very passive being essentially a ghost and a wholly human ghost at that He s here only to witness the events not much elseThe three main super characters are Superman Wonder Woman and Batman And there s loads of others Kingdom Come contains so much namedropping that for the DC uninitiated will mean absolutely nothing Many of them appear and disappear in the span of a paragraph On the other hand you don t really get time alone with the main three heroes to be able to truly like them The human ghost character is probably the most developed but even he is rather boring because his role is passiveThere problems of this novel are not really the writer s fault I don t think The story obviously works in comic form but it doesn t translate well to plain novel You re not missing much if you skip this one
