If you are interested in the Magog/Kingdom Come story taking place in the pages of Justice Society of America, hold on to your hat as the story isn’t ending anytime soon.  This November DC will release three spin-off specials that hopefully wrap up the events of Earth-22.  In either case, I don’t think Matthew will be too pleased.

The KINGDOM COME specials are:

Spinning out of the “One World, Under Gog” storyline, the Kingdom Come Superman’s struggle with his place in the world brings a final conflict between the Supermen of Earths 1 and 22!

This is the first fully written and illustrated adventure by KINGDOM COME co-creator Alex Ross, building to the storyline’s conclusion in JUSTICE OF SOCIETY OF AMERICA #22!

The penultimate chapter of the epic “One World, Under Gog” explodes here as the Justice Society of America goes to war with one another.
