An excellent adaption of the DC Universe. Great storyline and plenty of action. You definitely don't want to put the book down.

Fun and fast. Though breaks from Kingdom Come a bit, it is still a viable read. If you are a fan on Kingdom Come, you will enjoy this.

An excellent product for which I do not regret buying at the time. It is a true collector's item. I recommend it.

Despite this book being a sequel to 'Kingdom Come' and having the same characters, it's just too different both in art style and in the quality of the story itself to be a worthy follow-up. While 'Kingdom Come' was a real piece of art both in its stunning art by Alex Ross and in the poetical story which both set it apart from other superhero graphic novels, 'The Kingdom' is drawn in a customary comics style (while it's decent, still, there are better drawn graphic novels from the same period), and the story... well, if you've read DC's Zero Hour or One Million events, you might have some general idea about just how little logic and character development this one has.

In short, a man, whom Superman has saved from death, worships Superman as a kind of a god to the point that he builds a Superman church, but later the man becomes disilusioned with Superman, looses his faith and the meaning of his entire life, and at that point a bunch of very wise (insert sarcasm here) cosmic superbeings for some reason, that I'm not sure I completely understood, decide to give this guy god-like powers and the whole knowledge and history of the universe (or something close). The guy goes nuts, calls himself Gog, decides Superman is not a messiah but an antichrist and sets off to get the universe rid of Supes by killing him over and over again by going back and back in time, in the process of which Gog also abducts Superman's newborn son. Of course, the great three DC heroes and a selection of hero offspring can't have that and come after Gog to stop him. Thankfully, this story is short (as compared to, say, the mess called 'Crisis on Infinite Earths') and has better dialogues (no idiotic shouting or repetition of what powers the character has and what he/she is doing).

The only parts of this whole story that I actually liked were the part featuring Nightwing's daughter (story 'Nightstar') and the waitress' story ('Planet Krypton'), both of which had very little to do with the main Gog storyline. Also, the bit about hypertime was not bad either, because it ties in DC's Elseworlds stories into one universe, and if you've read any Elseworlds stories, look closely and you might recognize images from some of them.

Don't expect much of this graphic novel and you won't be disappointed, and maybe even find a few good bits within. Better yet, consider this a fanfic based on 'Kingdom Come'.

As single issues, the comics that make up The Kingdom" were fairly good, some better than others. As a collection, they don't work very well together.
The storytelling is very patchy. The beginning gives a great set-up: the creation of Gog, the birth of Superman and Wonder Woman's child, the deaths of multiple Supermen, the appearance of the Linear Men, and the reappearance of many supporting characters from Kingdom Come. The middle of the book, however, breaks the flow by setting aside this storyline and focusing waaaaaaay too much on a select few supporting characters, even one who wasn't IN Kingdom Come. By the end of the book, when the original storyline resumes, you'll be hard-put to still be interested in what's happening, and the horrible art in the last chapter was an insult to Jerry Ordway's and Ariel Olivetti's beautiful work in the beginning.
Lost Python
Coming after the excellent "Kingdom Come", this must surely rank as the worst sequel ever written or published in the comics industry.
"The Kingdom" starts promisingly enough where "Kingdom Come" ended, a couple of decades in the future, with a very pregnant Wonder Woman about to give birth to the son of an older Superman on Paradise Island. The villain Gog appears, and after a brief battle with some of the younger surviving heroes from "Kingdom Come", manages to kidnap the newborn child, which he then brings back to the past (i.e. the present) for his own nefarious purposes. "As I am Gog, so you shall be my Magog". Will the baby boy become the very same Magog that precipitated the events in "Kingdom Come"?
Suffice to say, the rest of the story does not live up to the promise of that exciting first chapter. What follows is mostly author Mark Waid's personal rant against comic fans who insist on continuity in their favorite comic books as against comic fans who aren't opposed to reading "good" stories (i.e. the "kingdom of wonder" touted by "The Kingdom") regardless of whether such stories follow the established continuity of a comic book character's life.
The premise of "The Kingdom" is a good one, but the execution could have been much better. Plus, turning a story into a personal rebuke to a selected few in an audience who did not happen to concur with his views must have been the worst thing that an author could have done. And the art in the final chapter is really awful.
All in all, a very bad sequel that most fans of "Kingdom Come" must have wished had never seen the light of day. Alex Ross had minimal involvement, the blame is solely Mark Waid's.

Mark Waid seems to have been torn between the will to tell a good story and the will to undo Crisis on Infinite Earths and bring back the multiple universe scenario. As a result he seems to spen the first several chapters telling a good story, and then in the final chapter, quickly rushes in the multiple universe thing in such a strained way that it reads more like a lecture. A major reason for this rush at the end is that the story is structured so that the main story is really told in the first, second and last chapters, and some offshoot stories are told for the rest of the time. As much as I like the offshoot stories, they don't really leave enough room for the main story.
The art varies dramatically in quality between the beautiful work of Frank Quitely in the Offrspring story and the substandard Mike Zeck (I think) work in the closing chapter.
This book just scrapes a 4 star rating out of me, up until the beginning of the last chapter it deserves it fully, and it does open up a lot of fun in the DC Universe for other writers to use - As Grant Morrison has already done in Earth 2.
