Mister Miracle #8 (of 12)

   This series continues to be the damnedest thing. 

    Mister Miracle almost defies description, as it bounces (seemingly) between two realities. 

   One has Scott Free and his wife, Big Barda, fighting the down-to-Earth struggle to raise their infant son (who apparently doesn't sleep much).

   The other has Scott leading the armies of the New Gods against the forces of Darkseid - and it's a bloody, brutal affair. 

   But there's a sense of unreality to both settings, and as yet we don't know which - if either - is actually happening.

   It only has a passing connection to the original Jack Kirby creation - but it often feels like a loving homage to that work. But at other times it almost feels like it's sacrilegious.

   Writer Tom King is crafting a truly different story here, working with the unique and vivid art by Mitch Gerads.

   I have no idea where it's going, but I'm anxious to see what happens next.
