Comic-book publishers have grown expert at collecting individual issues of a title as graphic novels and later re-releasing those collections with hitherto unpublished sequences, further artwork, and other "bonus" material to entice buffs to purchase the same book twice and thrice. DC Comics brings the game to a new level with the Absolute series of oversized, slipcased, hardcover volumes of landmark titles. Set 20 years into the future of the DC Universe, Kingdom Come (1996) saw old-school heroes like Superman and Wonder Woman confronting violent, irresponsible superhero newcomers who are as dangerous as the villains they oppose, while Batman led a third camp attempting to head off a disastrous superhuman war. The main attraction is Alex Ross' lush, ultrarealistic, painted artwork. Marking the story's tenth anniversary, its Absolute treatment includes excerpts from Ross' sketchbook and other artwork from trading cards, T-shirts, and other tie-in products. Gordon Flagg

A reliable site got THREE different copies and all of them have the same error.
I just can't believe I sold my old copy for this crap. And now is out of print again...
I had seen this book on the shelves of several comic book stores, but since I was more of a Marvel guy, I ignored this volume for years. What a big mistake.
A friend finally showed me the interior of this beautiful slipcased book. Alex Ross' amazing art immediately jumped out at me. I ran home, jumped online and purchased this book immediately.
The story is as wonderful as the art is stunning. The book will stick with you long after you finish reading. Pages and pages of Alex Ross' sketches follow the story which is an added bonus.
If you're curious to what a great comic story can be, I highly recommend this book!
Yes, compared to the smaller prints it is a bit grainy. But it doesn't matter, this is one beautiful book that I'm glad to have.
(I would recommend looking for a version that doesn't cost more than $100, seriously overpriced)
