THE BUY PILE FOR SEPTEMBER 19, 2018
Mister Miracle #11 (DC Comics)
Jump from the Read Pile. There is a war between two worlds full of gods, New Genesis and Apokolips. To stop the truly epic bloodshed, the title character and his warrior wife have only to turn over their only begotten son to their worst enemy. In order to work through this, they decide to put on a show, and that makes for one entertaining comic. Everything you need to know is said very early in a way that you will likely not notice until the second or third read.
This Tom King script matches some of the heights he delivered in Omega Men, and the artwork by Mitch Gerads and Clayton Cowles work with the brilliant twists and delicious tension here flawlessly. RATING: BUY.
