Mister Miracle: Warnings and Remodeling

So, this is it. We've officially hit the MISTER MIRACLE halfway point and, in the process, we've come up on a major turning point for the story in more ways than one. But we'll talk about consequences in a second. First, we need to talk about rules and warnings.

Ten Moments that Mattered in 2017

Has it been a year already? 2017 has reached its end, but before we dive into 2018, we’d like to take a moment and look back. For DC fans, 2017 was a remarkable year in comics, film and TV. Our characters reached new milestones and audiences, our writers and artists achieved remarkable new heights and our universe continued to grow in surprising new ways. And yet, within it all, several moments stood out for their importance and relevance. Some of them were groundbreaking, others were a welcome return. All of them are worthy of acknowledgement and celebration.

Mister Miracle: Love and Lockpicks

Hey, can I tell you a love story?

It's a good one, I promise. It's actually, maybe, not even really a love story. Not how you're thinking, anyway. It's only one in the sense that it's about two people who love each other.

Scott Free and Big Barda have been together for a really, really long time. I mean that both in the narrative sense, but also in the real life sense. Jack Kirby created them back in the ’70s. That means they've at least been in one another's orbit for over forty years. That's a pretty long time to exist with another person, fictional or otherwise.

First Look: Superman...Ruler of Apokolips?

Superman is an inspiration to all of us. He brings hope to the world and serves as a continual reminder of what we can accomplish.

No ever said that inspiration was exclusive to Earth.

Meet Steppenwolf, General of Apokolips

Chances are you, like millions of people, went to see Justice League this weekend. And there’s also a chance that you, and we’re guessing quite a few of your fellow moviegoers, got your first glimpse of the movie’s main villain teleporting down from the dark world of Apokolips with an army of Parademons behind him and immediately thought…

Huh? Who’s this guy?

Mister Miracle: True or False?

Last month with MISTER MIRACLE #3, I spoke about how time works in relation to nine-panel grids. So this month, I figure I may as well keep up the "technical" theme and break down another of Mister Miracle's quirks: movement.

Mister Miracle: Ticking Clocks

Time is a pretty strange thing to deal with no matter what, but it’s an especially unique challenge when you’re working with comics. The space and the motion between panels, the way images and word balloons flow across the page, they’re all meant to convey the difference between motion and stillness, which in theory, ought to create the illusion of time passing. Most of the time, comics do this so well that we don’t even really think about it as we read. And then there’s Mister Miracle.

Mister Miracle: Are We Clean?

I have a confession to make.

I’ve only ever been properly afraid—like, really, honestly, genuinely scared—of one super-villain in my entire life. I know, I know. There are so many villains and so many of them are horrifying, sure, but only one of them actually makes me lose sleep if I think about them too much. It’s not the Joker or Lex Luthor, or even someone designed to terrify like Scarecrow. It’s not Zoom, though he could easily hop back in time and erase my whole existence, and it’s not Sinestro who would literally be powered by my fear.
