    "ONE WORLD, UNDER GOG" SPINS OFF THREE KINGDOM COME SPECIALS IN NOVEMBER

    In November, the epic JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA storyline "One World, Under Gog," spins off three amazing KINGDOM COME Specials, all featuring covers by Alex Ross!

    Solicited in the September Previews, the JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA KINGDOM COME SPECIAL: MAGOG #1, JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA KINGDOM COME SPECIAL: THE KINGDOM #1 and JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA KINGDOM COME SPECIAL: SUPERMAN #1 all carry the "One World, Under Gog" story forward while spotlighting key members of the JSA.

    The KINGDOM COME specials are:

    JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA KINGDOM COME SPECIAL: SUPERMAN #1
    Written by Alex Ross
    Art and cover by Alex Ross
    Variant cover by Dale Eaglesham & Nathan Massengill
    Spinning out of the "One World, Under Gog" storyline, the Kingdom Come Superman's struggle with his place in the world brings a final conflict between the Supermen of Earths 1 and 22! Feeling the weight of his own world's loss on his shoulders, the transplanted Superman searches for answers to the mystery of his life's seemingly cursed existence and encounters "old acquaintances" on the way. This is the first fully written and illustrated adventure by KINGDOM COME co-creator Alex Ross, building to the storyline's conclusion in JUSTICE OF SOCIETY OF AMERICA #22!

    He was Lance Corporal David Reid of the Justice Society of America until he was killed in action and resurrected by Gog as his herald - MAGOG. But who is David Reid? Does he truly believe in Gog? And to what lengths will he go in order to find justice in this world?

    Gog rewards those he deems fit. Starman has regained his sanity, Sandman his sleep, Dr. Mid-Nite his sight, Damage his pride and Citizen Steel.? What "wish" will the indestructible hero be granted? And more importantly, what
    drawbacks do these wishes come with? Plus, Starman's true mission is revealed!

    Also this month, DC solicits the latest chapter of "One World, Under Gog" in the pages of JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #21:

    JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #21
    Written by Geoff Johns & Alex Ross
    Art by Dale Eaglesham & Nathan Massengill
    Cover by Alex Ross
    Variant cover by Dale Eaglesham & Nathan Massengill
    The penultimate chapter of the epic "One World, Under Gog" explodes here as the Justice Society of America goes to war with one another. Torn between Gog's desire to help the world and the moral cost it comes with, it's old guard vs. the new as the line that was drawn is crossed. But Gog does not like war...
