DC Comics MISTER MIRACLE Signing Event
The critically-acclaimed, award-winning series MISTER MIRACLE is available as a collected edition from DC Comics February 19. To mark the highly-anticipated release, writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads will join NPR’s “Pop Culture Happy Hour” panelist Glen Weldon at Barnes & Noble Union Square in New York City on February 21 for an intimate discussion and signing.
Hailed as “the best superhero story of the summer” (GQ), both King and Gerads garnered individual Eisner Awards for their work on the series. Barnes & Noble will also be releasing an exclusive version of MISTER MIRACLE featuring variant cover art by Gerads, a special introduction by King, and the complete script to issue #1.
In this bold new vision of one of Jack Kirby’s greatest creations, 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.
A limited number of wristbands for event access will be distributed with purchase of MISTER MIRACLE from Barnes & Noble Union Square location beginning at 9:00 a.m. on February 21.
Venue: Barnes & Noble Union Square
