I like these monumental works that deconstruct and reconfigure the canonical comic universe. If nothing else, reading them makes me feel like I'm keeping tabs. Ten years ago, "Kingdom Come" imagines our present, with Superman in exile, meta-humans running rampant, and apocalypse imminent. A preacher, accompanied by an archangel (the Spectre? Raguel?) watches, and is asked to judge.

I first read a Spectre comic when I was kid, purchased it in a plastic-bound set at some truck stop during a family camping trip. The character was compellingly enigmatic, and I like to see that continuing. I find that much more appealing than the idea that Superman and Wonder Woman are going to have a child that Batman will be responsible for raising. ( )
