Winner of five Eisner and Harvey Awards, KINGDOM COME is the best-selling graphic novel form acclaimed writer Mark Waid and superstar painter Alex Ross. Set in the not so distant future, the DC Universe is spinning inexorably out of control. The new generation of heroes has lost their moral compass, becoming just as reckless and violent as the villains they fight. The previous regime of heroes-the Justice League-returns under the most dire of circumstances, setting up a battle of the old guard against these uncompromising protectors in a battle that will define what heroism truly is.
Born in Hueytown, Alabama, Mark Waid has earned his living as a lounge singer, a magician, a disc jockey, an accountant, and in many other ways, but none of them as eclectic--or fun--as scripting comic books.
Waid has written for every major comic publisher, including Marvel Comics, Archie (where he served briefly as their cover-gag editor), Dark Horse, Image, DC Comics and Top Cow. His credits include X-Men, Flash, JLA, Ruse, Fantastic Four, the best-seller Kingdom Come, his creator-owned series Empire, and the Top Cow breakout hit Hunter-Killer.
