Today DC has revealed that Mister Miracle gets a limited series from Sheriff of Babylon creators Tom King and Mitch Gerads.
News of this was released by Paste, Mister Miracle will be a 12-issue series that will start in August and aims to put a 21st Century spin on the character just like the original creator Jack Kirby did in the 1970s for his original stories.
King told Paste ""I don’t think that’s the challenge, I think that’s the theme. In going back and reading all of Kirby, you’re dipping your head in genius. No one can out-Kirby Kirby. You can’t make an epic as great as he did. It’s like trying to make Star Wars again, or like trying to rewrite the Iliad. You can take those grand cosmic space opera themes and internalize them and use them to tell a very personal story. That’s what appealed to me about it. We were going to take the bigness of Kirby and turn that into the intimacy of Mister Miracle’s life."
King also said, "Kirby used a metaphor for his time, written in the late ‘60s early ‘70s when the world was going utterly insane. We’re going to use it as a metaphor for our time, the late 2010s, when once again the world is going insane. It’s almost like we’re holding up a mirror to that work, or internalizing it. We’re going step-in-step with him.". For more Nerd News and updates keep it right here at Nerdz With Wordz.
