Mister Miracle is going through a really tough time in his personal life and it turns out, once again, Darkseid might have the Anti-Life equation. So Mister Miracle, with wife Big Barda, has to get back into the action. But is everything as it seems? Didn’t Barda used to have blue-eyes. Mister Miracle (or Scott) has apparently mislaid his copies of Who’s Who. The issue is designed to have a big hook and Tom King writes it decently, but it’s far from compelling. Mitch Gerads’s art helps quite a bit, though it’s a tad too design-y. The comic feels too static, too manipulative. Why bother getting involved if it’s just a narrative cheat.
