This is where Scott Free needs to perform the biggest miracle yet. All the characters were there, but I was never sure what was happening. Like most good writers, Tom King does that thing with this book that lets each reader decide what the story means, while at the same time kinda pointing you toward what it meant to him. There are a lot of cool concepts thrown around. It ends at a pretty huge cliffhanger (I won't say more--if you're reading this in single issues, you're probably aware of what I mean) and...that's it. Mister Miracle might be one of the rawest superhero comics I've read in recent memory." It’s a special piece of work and I see how it garnered the acclaim (and awards) that it has, rich themes and deep characterisation married with sublime, arty visuals. Throughout this story, he tackles countless issues that line-up with parenthood, existence and war, without ever presenting a clear transition between one subplot and another. Mister Miracle is a kind of superhero comic written by Tom King and illustrated by Mitch Gerards focused on a guy named Scott Free, who is—move over, Houdini--“the greatest escape artist who ever lived.” Mister Miracle, first seen in 1971, was the invention of Jack Kirby, and I read some of that to remind myself of his origins. However, Tom Kings Mr.Miracle is more of a story based on personal experiences and not pertaining to any of Jack Kirbys Mythology of the New God's. (Especially interesting is the creative team's twist on the old mystery of whether any of this is real or not.) 1: Or Is He Both?

But can he pull off the ultimate trick–and escape death itself? Think of this less of a cohesive story (though there is a story in here) and rather as a series of connected set-pieces with each chapter dedicated to doing one thing well. Deeply depressed, Scott attempts one last escape. Covers by Gerads and Nick Derrington Graphics were great but I wouldn’t say there was any substance to it.

Thank you for your review David, do you think this is "new reader" friendly? It seems there are things that even Mister Miracle, the world's greatest escape artist, can't escape... [Scott was still battling the anti-life equation in his head, but was choosing not to fight it because he loved the life he and Barda were creating together, raising their family. (Immortal Hulk (2018-)), Tom King is a comic book writer and novelist, best known for his work at DC Comics including. Well, Tom King has done the impossible: he made me like not only Jack Kirby's Fourth World -- a concept I have reviled since I first came across it decades ago -- but also a story that is basically, [an extended dream sequence, though I prefer to think of it as an "imaginary story.". Turns out being brought up in a nightmarish hellscape made ol’ Mister Miracle—who goes by the name Scott Free—pretty good at escaping, and so he makes a living as an escape artist (naturally). Mister Miracle . Turns out being brought up in a nightmarish hellscape made ol’ Mister Miracle—who goes by the name Scott Free—pretty good at escaping, and so he makes a living as an escape artist (naturally). This means that Mister Miracle sometimes feels like a TV show where each chapter is directed by a different director. But it doesn't wrap up, darn it! There's the one where they escape, the one where they have a baby, the one where they go on a trip.
