Remember the fantastic adventures of Mister Miracle when Jack Kirby introduced him in 1971? Yeah, those were really good times. Now DC Comics is bringing Mister Miracle back for a 12-issue run beginning on August 9, 2017.
The Mister Miracle maxi-series will be written by Tom King, with art by Mitch Gerads, letters by Clayton Cowles, and edited by Jamie S. Rich.
“MISTER MIRACLE is the most ambitious project I’ve ever worked on,” says King. “Mitch and I asked ourselves if we could do something as good as SANDMAN, PREACHER or NEW FRONTIER, which are transcendent, contained stories that comment upon the times in which they were made. We knew we’d be stupid to think we could, but we’d be more stupid not to try.”
“Because of the nature of how Tom and I are creating the book, I’m able to really stretch how I approach the art,” adds Gerads. “I’ve followed Tom into Baghdad, Gotham City, and now I couldn’t be more excited to join him on the battle plains of Apokolips! So here we go, into the breach once more, and I wouldn’t want anyone else by my side. FOR NEW GENESIS!”
“MISTER MIRACLE is the story of a trapped man who can get out of any trap,” continues King. “It’s about the weird that surrounds us now, that seems to push into every aspect of our being, that leaves us questioning the very foundations of our existence: how did I get into this and how the hell do I get out?”
I don’t know about your, Spoilerites, but I’m very interested in seeing how this series plays out. The cover art looks fantastic, and the idea of escaping death…
