Mister Miracle #8 from DC, is another chapter in the non-disappearance of this 1970’s Jack Kirby creation.

This time around, and stop me if you’ve heard this before, I just flew in and my arms are tired. I’m here all week!

Ladies and Gentlemen, there is very little of Big Barda in this issue; it’s basically ‘two men and a baby’. And an Apocolyptik War. Scott and Barda trade off babysitting duties, so they can each take turns fighting. Bodies pile up, and so do the diapers.

This one will appeal to new parent comic book readers in particular; Tom King knows how to write scenes and dialogue; he’s brilliant in timing too.
Artist Mitch Gerads also understands how to show us how Scott takes a beating in this tour-de-force display of the two dynamically opposed activities of home life and life at the front.

If you liked issue 7, and are into the domestic side of multidimensional war, you will love this issue!

Hey, that’s it for my act, hope you enjoyed the review, and ladies and gentlemen, it truly has been a pleasure describing this issue to each and every one of you!

DC Comics, Mister Miracle 8, $3.99 for 24 pages of content. Rated M for Mature, so don’t show the kids.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
