Annotation: "Mister Miracle is magical, dark, intimate and unlike anything you've read before. Scott Free is the greatest escape artist who ever lived. So great, he escaped Granny Goodness' gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, Big Barda. Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made quite a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, who has counted himamong its ranks. You might say Scott Free has everything--so why isn't it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick--except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out. From Hugo Award nominated writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads, the team behind The Sheriff of Babylon, comes an ambitious new take on one of Jack Kirby's most beloved New Gods in Mister Miracle!"--

Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 2019 January #2)

This masterful continuation of Jack Kirby's Fourth World saga breathes new life into Scott Free, aka brilliant escape artist Mister Miracle. The book opens with his attempted suicide, and it's clear that a history of struggle has made its mark on Scott. While he recovers with help from his beloved wife, Big Barda, Scott learns that his father—ruler of the planet New Genesis—has died. While fighting his half-brother, Orion, for the throne, Scott becomes a father himself. Balancing rulership, fatherhood, and war, Scott is forced to question whether he is willing to sacrifice what is most important to him in order to end a cycle of pain. Though there is no shortage of action, the story's script expertly tackles intense issues of trauma without pandering or offering any easy answers, instead extending a sense of empathy. The writing's subtlety is aided by Gerads's impeccable attention to detail and dynamic coloring, which nod to the story's origins while giving the characters a realistically updated aesthetic. Thoughtful insights connect to the reader on a deeply human level. Fans of Mister Miracle and new readers will be equally enthralled. (Feb.)
