Kingdom Come by Mark Waid and Alex Ross is a new addition to the graphic novel collection in the reference department of the Marion Library. The premise makes use of dozens of characters  ranging from classic heroes of the past like Captain Comet and the Spectre to newly created heirs to more familiar heroes and villains.  When society seems to have rejected traditional values in favor of a more reckless disregard for public safety and common decency, Superman and most of his allies retire.  Years pass and violent vigilantes like the insane Magog routinely rampage across the global having bloody battles with one another with no real purpose.  Finally, two opposing forces decide to  restore order to the world.  An older Superman returns to reclaim his role as the world’s greatest super hero while an injured but armored Batman considers leading allies of his own to oppose his old friend’s view of social justice. Naturally, while the heroes battle one another, opportunistic villains like Lex Luthor make plans of their own. It is an epic story about the nature of heroism and how larger than life characters deal with emotions like loss, guilt, and forgiveness.

William Shakespeare!


William Shakespeare died on April 23, 1616 and is still considered to have been one of the greatest authors in history. With an unerring command of language, an imaginative use  of diction, and an uncanny insight into human nature, he captured the highs and lows of what it means to be human like no other writer.  People may no longer literally speak like his creations but feelings and motivations have not changed since he masterfully explored life, love, loss, hatred, revenge, and envy in so many wonderful works. Even if you have never watched or read one of his plays, you’ve probably seen or read something inspired by a play Shakespeare wrote.
