Review quote

"The Best Superhero Story of the Summer. Mister Miracle might be one of the rawest superhero comics I've read in recent memory." --GQ "One of the most mind-bending superhero comics currently on stands." --Entertainment Weekly

"For those wishing that an 'adult superhero comic' meant more than just swearing and violence, Mister Miracle might just be the series you've been waiting for all along." --Hollywood Reporter

"This is a most fitting tribute to Kirby by way of King: a tale of epic cataclysm both delicately devastating and quietly joyful." --Booklist (Starred Review)

"Masterful.... Fans of Mister Miracle and new readers will be equally enthralled." --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"A solid stand-alone that should have broad teen and adult appeal for those seeking more unusual cape-and-tights fare." --Kirkus Reviews

"Every year, one book stands up above everyone else's. Fans and creators alike stop and stare in amazement at a couple of creators finding a new voice, new point of view, and new levels of artistic expression. This year it is Mister Miracle." --Brian Michael Bendis, author

"There are master magicians performing here. Their names are Tom King and Mitch Gerards." --Brad Meltzer, author of Identity Crisis

"Mister Miracle spirals out of control in his dazzling new comic." --A.V. Club

"Mister Miracle is every bit as good as one would expect from a creative team of this caliber working with such a venerated character. Tom King and Mitch Gerads manage to blend the larger-than-life nature of the Fourth World with a very grounded and emotionally charged story of a hero at his lowest ebb. Regardless of your familiarity with the New Gods, this is a series that absolutely deserves to be on your pull list." --IGN

"The new series Mister Miracle from writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads will take readers on an episodic roller coaster of death, resurrection, mystery and intrigue." --CBR

"One of the best comics you read this year." --i09

"A never-ending loop of the bizarre, anxious and absurd...King and Gerads excel at creating incredibly likable characters who attempt to untangle doomed causes--a legacy perfect for this new book." --Paste Magazine

"Tom King wrote Mister Miracle for modern America." --Nerdist
