The New Gods are back in full force this week, as Mister Miracle #1 hits the stands. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it the most brilliant thing we’ve read in a while? It certainly made one of us uncomfortable.
It’s post-San Diego Comic-Con week here in Episode 292 of the Wayne’s Comics Podcast! You’ll hear my interviews with many terrific DC Comics creators, all of which took place at this year’s big SDCC from July 20 through the 23rd!
Edward Nygma has plagued the Batman as the Riddler for years so let’s learn his secret origin before the War of Jokes and Riddles! Plus we’re joined by Batman writer Tom King!
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.
Of course, I knew going in that Tom King’s Batman would be very different from Scott Snyder’s incarnation. And it’s not like the climax (Get it?) in this issue has never happened before – It has, back in the beginning of the New 52. And it occurred in a graphic novel years ago, and that resulted in Damien Wayne. What really concerns me is that I’m already starting to get used to all this, and I’m not sure that’s a good thing!
