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! Feeling the weight of his own world’s loss on his shoulders, the transplanted Superman searches for answers to the mystery of his life’s seemingly cursed existence and encounters “old acquaintances” on the way. 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!

Gog rewards those he deems fit. Starman has regained his sanity, Sandman his sleep, Dr. Mid-Nite his sight, Damage his pride and Citizen Steel…? What “wish” will the indestructible hero be granted?

The penultimate chapter of the epic “One World, Under Gog” explodes here as the Justice Society of America goes to war with one another. Torn between Gog’s desire to help the world and the moral cost it comes with, it’s old guard vs. the new as the line that was drawn is crossed. But Gog does not like war…

    That last one is the most predictable. I haven’t picked up an issue in months and I even saw that one coming. Maybe tho’ we’ll get a major swerve and the healings of some of the JSA cast of millions will be permanant. Heh. I kill myself. Johns do a swerve? That will happen when a Morrison story doen’t need to be annotated and explained online to be fully understood and enjoyed…

    So there is a Kingdom Come Sequel going on? Jeez, where have I been!?

    Is any of this in graphic novel form yet?

    Boooooooooo. JSA is the only DC title I read on monthly basis and after this month’s ridiculousness … I’m done with it.
