  • Artemy
    Come along for the most daring and dangerous adventure of your lifetime with Scott Free, the super escape artist known as MISTER MIRACLE! He can escape anything — but can he escape something that no man has escaped before, can he escape... DEATH? Can he escape HIMSELF? Has he ever seen the face of GOD?..Okay, I'm not going to pretend I understand everything that's going on here. Jack Kirby's Fourth World is extremely difficult for me to wrap my...

    Never having been a huge fan of Mister Miracle or the New Gods, I went into this one with no preconceived expectations. I'm glad I did though, because this is quite a different comic story. There are a lot of cool concepts thrown around. (Especially interesting is the creative team's twist on the old mystery of whether any of this is real or not.) The art is distinct and unique. And Scott Free's characterization is intriguing as he is a god prete...

    I read this in single issues. I really didnt have much prior knowledge with regards to the character or story. It was a little confusing but after investing the time it became pretty cool with the nuemerous characters, the god concepts, the trippy word play and graphics. Tom King is great at his craft

    4.5 Stars For me King is hit and miss. I don’t love everything he touches. But this reimagining of Kirby’s characters is incredible.On paper if you were to tell me King was remaking these characters as dark and gritty I’d be intrigued but worried. But King managed to pull off taking some of the most colorful characters in DCs history and make this more mature tale that both honors the characters roots and does something new and different.I ...

    Re-read as single issues. Even more amazing the second time around.
  • Ken Moten
    Tom King is the only person at DC Comics that is coming close to Christopher J. Priest. As much as I have been liking his work on Batman, this is the project that takes me back to his work on Vision: The Complete Series (Vision: Director's Cut. I have always known about this character, but it is only now that I really invested in the Fourth World. The trade-mark candor and Tarentino-esque violence of King is in full-effect. The fact that the acti...

    100/100 Darkseid is.

    O que o maior artista de fugas do Universo DC faz quando não se pode fugir da própria vida? O Senhor Milagre e seu conceito básico quando criado por Jack Kirby na década de 1970 já fazia dele pra mim um dos personagens mais interessantes do panteão dos Novos Deuses da DC Comics. Não é por menos que devorei as 6 primeiras edições desta série em 12 partes escrita por Tom King e belamente ilustrada por Mitch Gerads. Tom King tem sido um d...
  • Malum
    I went into this volume without knowing anything about Mister Miracle or the New Gods. At first, I didn't think I would like it. It was very confusing, I didn't know who anyone was or what was happening. Luckily, King does a pretty good job of filling you in on most of the backstory that you need to understand, and the weirdness begins to make sense in its own way. Then, looking deeper, you begin to see some of the brilliant things that King is d...
  • Tomas
    I was waiting till 6 issues are out to read this. And I should have waited for all 12 issues. I could not get away from this book and I do not fully understand why is that. It is mesmerizing, scary, entertaining, troubling and disturbing. I am really worried what will happen to Scot. I know it sounds weird but I really am. And I barely know him. I knew of him: origin, spouse, skill set,... but I never really cared about him... till now.I got Ralp...
  • George
    Easily in the top five best ongoing series in comics at the moment, Mister Miracle is the book I get most excited for with every issue. It's kind of hard to explain what this story is. It's not quite superhero, not quite on the more "celestial" side of the things DC tends to do, Mister Miracle exists in this inbetween space where you can buy Scott Free as both a son of a god and a regular dude with real issues. Reading Mister Miracle, you're not ...

    4.5/5I didn't know anything about Scott Free before I decided to get into King's new run on him and read a wikipedia page about Mister Miracle before starting the first issue. But this one volume was enough to make me care greatly about him and Barda and cheer them on whatever they do. I have a love/hate relationship with Tom King's writing and his creative decisions but I really like what he did with "Mister Miracle" so far. Mitch Gerards, as al...
  • John
    King is taking on the legacy of Jack "King" Kirby with the comic. It's clearly a classic in the making only have way through. It's written for an America right now. King and Gerad's ambition is to attempt something equal to Watchmen or New Frontier. This is gearing up to be a proper finale to the Fourth World Series (in a way that I feel Morrison tried/failed and diverted with Final Crisis). We need a better hero than the War God Orion, and he is...

    Just not my cup of tea.
  • Eli Seibert
    This reads like a fever dream, and I mean that in the best way possible.
  • Thelaurakremer
    Can I give this a million jillion stars?!!?
  • Rob
    Potentially as good as Vision, which is a ridiculous statement to type. Gerads's artwork is perfect.I may be a little bit in love with Big Barda.

    This might be Gerard’s most stylish and innovative art yet. King has a take on these characters that is pretty different than Kirby’s but I love how he re-uses some of Kirby’s words. Great dialogue, too.
