This Week’s Finest: Mister Miracle #3

by Tom King, Mitch Gerads & Clayton Cowles

Mister Miracle’s stunning debut concluded with protagonist Scott Free, aka Mister Miracle, teaming with wife/partner/colleague/ war general Big Barda, hopping into a boom tube back home to defend New Genesis from an invasion by Darkseid. This all followed a dizzying and engrossing set up, where Scott wakes up from an apparent suicide attempt, only to see his grasp on reality slipping. All in addition to the revelation for High Father that Darkseid has obtained the anti-life equation, a detail he shares with his son Scott before he’s murdered. Where as Mister Miracle #1 was notable for an overarching surrealism, partially designed to make readers question the reliability of it’s narrator and his surroundings, it’s second installment was slightly more grounded. Or, as grounded as the comic can be about a war between two planets of deities, and an installment with it’s own fair share of revelations and intrigue related to the stories overall mystery. Issue #3 merges the two settings together, creating a centralized perspective and contrast between Scott & Barda’s Los Angeles home against New Genesis, while further inverting and mutating elements of the books larger mysteries. Once again, with nearly flawless execution from Tom King, MItch Gerads & Clayton Cowles, Mister Miracle #3 is another astonishing work of comics unlike anything else.

This Week’s Finest: Mister Miracle #1

by Tom King, Mitch Gerads & Clayton Cowles

Mister Miracle #1 is a dizzying and infectious debut issue of a series from three masters of their craft in Tom King, Mitch Gerads & Clayton Cowles, working at the height of their capabilities. Surreal, dark and engrossing, Mister Miracle takes on the conventions of Jack Kirby’s iconic New Gods characters for a modern day treatise on paranoia and fear in our era of encroaching fascism on western liberal democracy. Deeply creative and engrossing, Mister Miracle is the best debut issue of a comics series in years, and it’s excellent by almost any measure.  Continue reading This Week’s Finest: Mister Miracle #1
