DC's reinvention of Jack Kirby's '70s escape artist extraordinaire has been nothing short of a minor miracle, but with the powerhouse creative team of writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads at the helm, all things are possible.
Mister Miracle in this potent pair's hands has extricated itself from the hundreds of new titles across the entire comics spectrum and was elevated to an enlightening example of the transformative effects of the medium. King's dagger-sharp wit meshes perfectly with Gerad's expressive 9-panel pages in a refreshing title that is sure to be nominated for an Eisner Award for Best New Series this year..
Gerads (Batman, The Punisher) sat down with SYFY WIRE to sketch Scott Free, aka Mister Miracle, and learn what makes the character look like Spider-Man without the webs, making him all happy and smiley, fan reactions about depression and PTSD covered in the book, and inspirations for his melancholy Mister Miracle.
DC's Mister Miracle #9 drops on June 6.
