Mister Miracle is an incredible character that few know much about. He was created by the legendary Jack Kirby, after a fallout with Marvel over creator rights, and had the epitome of 70’s style kaleidoscope comics, with space adventures and all kinds of ridiculous ideas at play. Born Scott Free, Miracle is an escape artist who after being imprisoned on Darkseid’s home planet of Apokolips, due to his “New God” status, escaped and made it home safe to his family on New Genesis.
Written by Tom King, most recently of the notable Vision book with Marvel, and groundbreaking Omega Men for DC. King has shown a prose in his tragic writing that few writers these days are able to emulate. Art is being handled by Mitch Gerads of The Punisher and Sheriff of Babylon. The title launches its 12-issue run this August.
