Comic Book Review: Mister Miracle #1 - DC Comics (2017)

"Meet: Mister Miracle"

Written by Tom King
Art by Mitch Gerads

Mister Miracle seems to be having a bit of an inside of the mind crisis and dealing with friends, family and most importantly himself has been difficult.

The synopsis I gave is on the vague side for a reason.  Mister Miracle is a twelve issue mini-series and issue one is just the jumping off point.  There are more questions than answers at this point.

Mister Miracle opens with our hero lying on the bathroom floor with his wrists slit.  The fallout from it all plays out throughout the book.  At home with Big Barda, on television in talk show format and also in his mind as he thinks back to childhood.  There are also multiple ominous black panels with "Darkseid is" printed in them.  I am absolutely in love with how this book was written and presented.  I don't know much about Mister Miracle or the New Gods for that matter, so please don't let that deter you from picking up this comic book series.  You may need to pick up a second printing, these books were flying off the shelf and sold out at my local comic book shop.

Speaking of local comic book shop, Samurai Comics in Mesa, AZ was where I picked up Mister Miracle #1 and I was pleased that they had the artist for the series, Mitch Gerads in attendance.  I have had the opportunity to chat with Mr. Gerads at multiple cons and comic book store events and it is awesome to hear his insight.  His art style is a bit different than other comic artists as he does every bit of the artistic process.  Mitch does all of his own pencils, inks, and colors.  It is truly incredible that he is able to do all of the artistic duties and he makes it all look amazing as well.  I was able to get the variant cover of Mister Miracle autographed while I was at the comic shop.
