Deconstructing Comics #565: Mister Miracle And Comics Journalism Hype

by Hannah Means Shannon

Mister Miracle

Deconstructing Comics returns to Comicon.com to talk about the Mister Miracle series:

DC recently launched a new Mister Miracle series, by Tom King and Mitch Gerads. Well and good, thought Emmet, but then he saw a certain CBR headline that set him off. “King and Gerads have redefined comics”? Hyperbolic much? So Emmet recruited Kumar to review both Mister Miracle #1 and the hype surrounding it. Is the use of suicide in the story meaningful? Hackneyed? How accessible is this comic to readers who don’t know the character? And, why does everything in comics have to be super-hyped nowadays?
