Welcome back to Critically Comics! We are launching Season 2 of the podcast and our first episode will focus on the Eisner winning Mister Miracle series by Tom King and Mitch Gerads. The DC Comics series uses Jack Kirby’s Fourth World characters to examine PTSD, depression, parenthood, nihilism, war, divinity, the comic medium, and about every other topic under the sun. Does this book live up to the hype or is it to early to tell if this 2017 series should be considered canon worthy? Steven and Tara tackle the series and try to determine if it deserves a place on your shelf with other literary greats.
We are almost back with Season 2 of Critically Comics! To celebrate and prepare for the upcoming season, we have an interview with one of the Eisner award winning creators of our first book selection of our second second — Mitch Gerds artist of Mister Miracle! We talked to Mitch about his love of Wally West, his interpretation of Mister Miracle, his artistic process and his former glory days of staring in homemade Robin Hood films. Stick around to the end of the episode where we reveal the full line up of books we have in line for Season 2 and then return next month for our episode on Mister Miracle!
