Mister Miracle Artist Mitch Gerads Renews DC Comics Contract

Mister Miracle artist Mitch Gerads isn't leaving DC anytime soon, as the Eisner nominee has announced her renewed his exclusive contract with the publisher.

"It was the easiest of calls," he wrote on Twitter. "I truly love working with DC and the people that comprise it."

Written by Tom King, Mister Miracle earned multiple Eisner Award nominations this year, including for Best Limited Series, Best Penciler/Inker and Best Coloring (Gerads pencils, inks and colors the series). Gerads has collaborated with King on Vertigo's The Sheriff of Babylon, and on a number of Batman issues.

Debuting in October, Mister Miracle revisits many of Jack Kirby's classic New Gods characters, but focuses on the title character, escape artist Scott Free, and his wife Big Barda. But rather than a traditional superhero romp, the series is a bit more retrospective, introducing Mister Miracle struggling with not only external threats but his own demons.

Before his exclusive agreement with DC, Gerads worked on many projects, including Marvel Comics' The Punisher and Image Comics' The Activity.

The first eight issues of Mister Miracle are available now. The next installment of the 12-issue miniseries will be released on June 6.
