"Mister Miracle is magical, dark, intimate and unlike anything you've read before. Scott Free is the greatest escape artist who ever lived. So great, he escaped Granny Goodness' gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, Big Barda. Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made quite a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, who has counted him among its ranks. You might say Scott Free has everything--so why isn't it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick--except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out. From Hugo Award nominated writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads, the team behind The Sheriff of Babylon, comes an ambitious new take on one of Jack Kirby's most beloved New Gods in Mister Miracle!"-- Provided by publisher.

I just want to know if the changes in this story are in continuity or not. Outside of that, I thought that this was slightly overrated.

Read this in one sitting. Amazing story about Scott and Barda. Highly recommend this series to anyone who's a New Gods fan or newcomer to the characters.

I like most of what King does, but this one just didn't work for me. It might have been a matter of personal taste or interest in the character.

An incredible character study that will only get better with age and multiple re-readings.

I have to admit that I sometimes read graphic novels just for the text and the art is secondary. In this case, though, the art is essential to exploring the notions of reality that are raised when a master escape artist escapes death (was it a physical escape or...dramatic music...a metaphysical one?!?). It's a good example of a graphic novel firing on all cylinders.
