  • You are the correct the Epilogue was not originally released with the first issues of Kingdom. It was added on as the special treat for the fools who payed $100 bucks for the first hardcover version. They also added the Apocolypse section as well.

  • I really want to thank you for this show. I have the originals, the Grahphitti Edition, the novelization and the cassettes, but i haven thought about re-reading/listiening in a long time. Your show reminded me about all the exciting and wonderful things about that fascinted me about Kingdom Come in the first place. I'm rereading the novel now and then ont the graphic novel. Love the podcast and I'm backtracking though your older shows now. Thanks again.

  • I agree that the Flash chapter of the Maggin novel is very good. I’ve thought about it often even though I read the book about 4 years ago. That chapter alone made more of an impression on me than many other “serious” books. Maggin has written some other good novelizations even though you wouldn’t know it based on the covers. I’m sure you would like them even though the covers are horribly trashy. “Last Son of Krypton”, for instance looks like it would be a straight novelization of the first Christopher Reeve movie, but it’s a completely different, and better, story. Don’t overlook “Starwinds Howl”, a Krypto novel.

    Have you heard the song “The Ballad of Barry Allen”? Here’s a link: http://bigego.com/index.php?page=songs&display=327. I don’t know for sure if the song is influenced by the aforesaid Flash chapter, but it’s hard to imagine that it’s not.
