Key Early Run on Trending Character
Posted by ICv2 on August 28, 2019 @ 8:27 am CT
The hardcover volume, with a cover by Marshall Rogers, will contain 216 pages for $39.99 US, hitting comic stores on February 26, 2020.
Interest in the character has been revived recently due to the new series by Tom King and Mitch Gerads, which sold well, hitting ICv2’s Top 10 Superhero Graphic Novel Franchise chart for Spring 2019 (see "Top 10 Superhero Graphic Novel Franchises – Spring 2019"), and receiving an Eisner nomination (see "2019 Eisner Award Winners").
Mister Miracle is also slated to appear in the planned Warner Bros. New Gods movie from director Ava DuVernay (see "Ava DuVernay to Direct ‘The New Gods’"), which King will co-write (see "Tom King to Co-Write ‘The New Gods’").
Created by Jack Kirby in 1971, Mister Miracle ran eighteen issues, ending in 1974. Englehart and Rogers began the revival of the title as part of the DC Explosion in 1977, but it ran only seven issues before succumbing to the fabled "DC Implosion" the next year when DC massively cut back on titles.
