Mister Miracle #4
Writer: Tom King
Artist: Mitch Gerads
Tom King and Mitch Gerads continue to tell a great story in Mister Miracle #4. There isn’t a ton of action in this issue, but there was no need for it at all. Tom King and Mitch Gerads do a superb job of telling a story that takes place in Scott and Big Barda’s house and most of the dialogue is done by four characters. By the time the issue is over, one can’t help but feel sorry for Mister Miracle because he allows all of his emotions to come bursting out at the end.
Mister Miracle finally allowed his emotions to come out in this issue. In this issue and in previous issues, he seemed to be taking everything in stride. Even when Lightray tells him that he’s being accused of being an agent of Darkseid, he just grabs a cup of coffee and asks that trail take place at his home. Big Barda is furious that he’s being accused of this, but not Scott. Scott is acting as if everything is normal, even during the trial, but that is until Orion asks Scott about his name. When that question is asked, everything seems to unravel for Scott, but hopefully it’s for the better.
Mr. King and Mr. Gerads know how to tell a great story and Mister Miracle #4 is great example of this. Big Barda is depicted as being strong and kicking ass, there is some humor spread throughout, and I couldn’t help but feel sorry for Mister Miracle at the end. There is a lot going on with him and I can’t wait to find out what it is. This is only issue #4, so jump on and enjoy some great storytelling by these two amazing storytellers.
