Written by Mark Waid
Illustrated by Alex Ross
THIS IS THE GREATEST THING I HAVE EVER READ!!!!
(It's so great that it's on my "favorite books" thing on Facebook!)
But for real, it is. If you're a fan of DC Comics in general, you'll like it. Pretty much everything about KC is great. First, you have a great writer doing this story, Mark Waid. Next, the artwork by Alex Ross is amazing. There is probably a lot I could say about KC, but since I'm a man of one or two words (As you can tell I've gone way over that!), I'll try to keep it short.
The story draws heavily on Biblical apocalyptic imagery, especially the Book of Revelation. It gives the story a sense of finality, as well as urgency with the heroes trying to stop this big war. And when the war between these superheroes ends, it ends with a bang and a PO'ed Kryptonian, as you see here.
Art - The awesome art is done by Alex Ross. The artwork is so epic and just down right good. One of the things I like about the art is that it has a touch of reality in it. His art also shows how ridiculous some, if not all, of these people in tight, bright-colored suits look. I also like how Ross just throws in something obscure and random for no reason. Here's one example:
In the left corner we have Sherlock Holmes, Rorschach from Watchmen, The Shadow, The Question, another character called Obsidian, and another nut in a trench coat and fedora.
Then, there's also this fantastic page of this:
