Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up—At Justice Society of America's headquarters, 31st-century Starman has traveled back to the 21st century after opening a black hole. A nuclear-war-weary "Kingdom Come" Superman has also traveled back in time. His goal is to stop the devastation by battling Gog and Magog. Magog wins over his followers, some of them JSA members, through his miracle cures and missionary zeal. It is up to Superman to convince people that Magog is evil and save Earth from destruction. The drama continues on Earth-2 as Power Girl must battle with the Justice Society of Infinity. Panels are beautifully drawn, and the cast of characters and bonus material help readers contextualize this engaging, involved story. Fans of the "Infinity Crisis" series (DC Comics) will be delighted.—Lisa Gieskes, CA Johnson Preparatory Academy, Columbia, SC

Thy Kingdom Come part 3 is epic comic storytelling at its best. It has a clear beginning, middle and end, and concludes fully and satisfyingly in the last issue of the story. The art by Dale Eaglesham, Fernando Pasarin and of course Alex Ross is exceptional, right down to the amazing way each artist is able to maintain a distinct visual rendering of the Kingdom Come Superman and the "real" one. As a monthly series, I can relate to why many readers would have found the story to be plodding or overlong. In trade form, its length is actually one of it's strengths. The story unfolds organically, and since there is no wait between chapters, a clear tension builds that ultimately has a satisfying resolution. The collected version of the story also has the benefit of including all the related chapters inbetween two covers which as monthly or single issues, would have been frustrating for readers to keep up with.

There are some weaknesses. To be sure, Gog's eventual turn is predictable. The central conflict driving the issues is a fairly cliche, retreaded idea we've seen a thousand times before. What makes it interesting here is that, beside the cliche, character interactions take some surprising turns and the factions that develop in the team prompt a genuine sense of dread and concern from the reader. After all, the JSA is supposed to be above these types of conflicts, and yet they manage somehow to be more human than many a stick figure currently being published by both DC and Msrvel. Gog's failure to provide a miracle for Commander Steel is never directly addressed and is distracting. Gog performs miracles for a number of other characters but for some reason, Steel's particular predicament is ignored.

Geoff Johns' Justice Society of America "sequel", Thy Kingdom Come, comes to a conclusion with this third collection, which wraps up Johns' run on the series, as well as includes work from Kingdom Come co-creator Alex Ross, which in itself is worth checking this hardcover out for alone. The story picks up with the JSA, now featuring the Kingdom Come-era Superman, apparently losing some team mates, only to have them saved by the mysterious Gog, whose plans of chaos are unseen to those he has saved. Naturally, it's up to the rest of the JSA to save the day, as we witness Reid's transformation into Magog in the process. The biggest problem with Thy Kingdom Come is that Johns, who is still the best superhero writer in the business today, wraps things up way too quickly and easily considering everything that has been set up thus far. Though the DC universe as a whole seems to be gearing towards what we've seen in Kingdom Come, the whole series just feels like it just doesn't amount to much. All that aside, there's more solid artwork from the great Alex Ross, as well as the Dale Eaglesham, who may be the best artist to take on the JSA in the modern era. All in all, the conclusion to Thy Kingdom Come may be a bit anti-climactic considering everything that has been set-up until now, but it's still a worthwhile endeavor, and is worth checking out just for the fact that it's Johns' swan song to the series.

Format: Paperback
This volume completes the carefully crafted story They Kingdom Come, a follow-up of sorts of the Kingdom Come blockbuster by Waid and Ross.

Johns is a master at story-telling, and his long-running fan favorite Justice Society explains why: he understands his characters and their motivations, and is a master and moving stories forward in both plot and sub-plot. He provides the reader with three-dimensional characters and conflicts. You can read the story summary elsewhere. It;s always exciting to see a team fight within itself, heroes battling heroes, but Johns does it here not for a stereotypical misunderstanding but based on philosophical differences that make the reader wonder whether the "wrong" side is really all that wrong. That's good storytelling.

The bonus in all this is the cleverly interspersed Alex Ross art and Kingdom Come tie-in. Well not so much of a bonus as it is an integral part of the storyline, but it is handled well and gives fans of Kingdom Come a chance to revisit a favorite time and place, and connects it to the current reality.

It's interesting to read the three star reviews from others, and I am left wondering what they would consider a five-star story. If any comic story ever earned a five star-rating, it's this epic.

This final volume of "Thy Kingdom Come" is only just okay. The story continues to be more violent than I enjoy and the artwork is uneven throughout. Dale Eaglesham's penciling is excellent (and Alex Ross's art is wonderful), but Fernando Pasarin's is clunky and mediocre. Starman is a lot more fun when he's schizophrenic and I tire of the constant fighting and slender storytelling. Also, the second two volumes of this trilogy make a lot more sense if you've read Alex Ross's "Kingdom Come" recently. If you're a completist, and you can get this JSA volume for a reasonable price, then go for it, otherwise, skip to "Black Adam and Isis".
