When writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads' multiple Eisner award-winning Mister Miracle ended in November of last year, the final page of the comic declared that the series was concluded, but that a "new and thrilling successor" was on the way.
That successor has now been officially announced by DC in the form of Strange Adventures, which unites King, Gerads and Evan Shaner. Little did anyone realize last November, King and Gerads actually teased this new project on the last page of Mister Miracle's final issue.
On the final page of Mister Miracle #12, Mister Miracle (aka Scott Free) is wearing a t-shirt featuring none other than Adam Strange, Strange Adventures' titular hero. Throughout Mister Miracle, Scott is seen in several different DC hero-themed t-shirts, sporting the symbols of Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Flash, among others.
As such, the fact that he was wearing a shirt with Adam Strange on it in his comic's closing moments seemed like little more than another innocuous reference at the time. However, it is now clearly seen as an early hint regarding what King and Gerads would be getting up to next. This is underscored by the fact that Gerads himself shared Mister Miracle's last page to Twitter just twelve hours before Strange Adventures was officially unveiled.
Strange Adventures, by Tom King, Evan Shaner and Mitch Gerads, is set to launch in 2020.
