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.

Welcome back, my friends, to the story that never ends, as it finally ends. JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA: THY KINGDOM COME, Part III clamps down a resolution to the thing, and after a seemingly endless salvo of issues published, it turns out it's not worth the wait. And I can't help but think that the sheer length of this arc plays a significant reason.

Last we left the JSA, assigned members (along with the JLA) were tracking Gog as the mysterious horned deity strode across Africa, performing miracles left and right and vowing to make the world better (and, really, if that last part doesn't raise your hackles, then you're not caught up on your Big Bads). No one quite knew what to make of Gog, what his true intentions are. But the most cautious was the Superman of Earth-22 (the Kingdom Come reality). He grew even more skeptical when Gog transformed a descendant of FDR into his herald Magog, and it's detected that Magog's power levels now threaten to rival that of the Kingdom Come Superman's. And, for this aged Man of Steel, this is merely one more signpost that his worst fears are coming to pass, that this Earth is veering nearer to the course of events which destroyed his own world. Superman begins to unravel just a bit.

Meanwhile, Power Girl, thanks to Gog's "largesse," is currently trapped in an Earth-2 that, as it turns out, isn't quite the same Earth-2 from which she came. She finds herself regarded with suspicion by that Earth-2's version of the Infinity Inc. and the JSA (both teams having combined as the Justice Society Infinity). It doesn't help her case that there's already another Power Girl in place (and this one without a boobage portal on her costume). Kara's last hope to get back home rests on a brilliant physics professor named Michael Holt.

This book didn't felt like a "Soap Opera", like other review say, rather that I felt this JSA story a magnificent Kingdom come Companion.

I just LOVE the way the book end, as so how it develops. You get great action and more Alex Ross goodness.

Give these 3 part story a chance, get loads of fun and get more used to the JSA and their role on the DC Universe.

Worth every penny in your pocket.

Format: Hardcover
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.
