Publisher’s Summary: If there’s one thing popular fiction has taught us by now, it’s: never make a deal with the devil! And yet Mister Miracle is still listening when Darkseid approaches him with just such a devilish proposition—if Scott sends his newborn son to Apokolips, there will be peace on New Genesis. Since when has Darkseid been famous for his honesty?! It’ll be a miracle if this doesn’t blow up in Scott’s face.
Grandpa Darkseid munches down on a veggie platter as Mister Miracle and Big Barda give him their only child, his grandson, Jacob, in exchange for a much needed ceasefire.
It’s safe to say that Mister Miracle and Big Barda weren’t really on board with trading their child to Darkseid for a ceasefire, and that they would have a plan when bringing little Jacob to Apokolips, but what happens in this issue took me by surprise; Mister Miracle (2017-) #11 ends on an exciting note and perfectly sets the stage for an epic conclusion.
At this point, there’s only so much more that I can say about Tom King and his writing or Mitch Gerards and his artwork, but, yet again, the two do a fantastic job and produce another memorable issue.
Realizing that there was only a single issue left in Tom King’s Mister Miracle run hit me real hard in the feels, but all great things must eventually end, and while I’m not at all happy to see this one go, I am eager to read Issue #12 and find out how Tom King wraps up what has proven to be an amazing series.
The Bottom Line:
This penultimate issue of Mister Miracle is intense and exciting and thought-provoking, and with just a single issue left in this series, there’s no telling how Tom King is going to wrap up his run on Mister Miracle.
