Kingdom Come (opens in new tab), Mark Waid and Alex Ross’s tale of the old guard of DC heroes facing obsolescence in a world protected by a younger and more vicious generation of superheroes is just as powerful now as it was when it was first published in 1996.

Thanks to Waid’s understanding of the titanic personalities he handles, his presentation that makes them feel human instead of lofty gods, and Ross’ gorgeous painted visuals, Kingdom Come is often the first book mentioned when people are asked what their favorite DC stories are.

While Kingdom Come stands as an emotional testament to Mark Waid’s almost superhuman knowledge of the DCU and Alex Ross’s immense talent behind a brush, it also rewards readers who find themselves coming back again and again to Waid and Ross’s dystopian Elseworlds series. Whether it is the fact that Ross used the image of his own father, a reverend himself, as the inspiration for point-of-view character Norman McCay or Waid’s cameo-filled final showdown that still reveals new heroes amid the din of battle, this story feels new with every reread despite being on shelves for over 20 years.

Kingdom Come is a classic in every sense of the word, and continues to stand as the best story that DC has produced – and with 2021 marking the 25th anniversary of the story’s release, we expect some renewed attention from DC.
