It was an incredibly pleasant surprise when I saw this novel in a
bookshop, Kingdom Come and Elliot S. Maggin's return to superhero
novels. This had to be good.

It was, no doubt about it. The comic was good, and so is this. An
extra treat (apart from smashing up Booster), is the inclusion of some
art pieces by Alex Ross throughout the book.

An excellent novelization by Elliot S. Maggin of "Kingdom Come", the apocalyptic graphic novel by Mark Waid and Alex Ross. The graphic novel is slightly more powerful due to the amazing power of Alex Ross' art (a few illustrations by whom are included here), but Maggin does an excellent job of expanding upon their work.
