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.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 22, 2018

    The climatic, penultimate issue of Mister Miracle delivers the perfect climactic, penultimate issue we could want, in terms of writing, art and story. But there's still plenty of time for King and Gerads to blow our minds even more! Read Full Review

    GWW - Elizabeth Garcia Sep 19, 2018

    Yet again, King has knocked it out of the park and has created something both odd and immensely special. Mitch Gerads art has been solid throughout. The splatter effect through blood or illustrated white noise is used to further the story element at key points. I love that this team is committed to the nine-panel grid as a tribute to Jack Kirby. Despite this being the second to last issue I do not know how this story will end. There are a lot of questions left unanswered but I do know this book will be remembered as a must read for comic and literary fans due to its dark, existential, and philosophical themes.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 19, 2018

    If what comes next is as good as what's in this one, Mister Miracle will join the pantheon of greatest comic stories ever. Somewhere, Jack Kirby is smiling to see his creations used in such a perfect manner. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Sep 23, 2018

    Mitch Gerads plays his part as usual, making this comic the best on the market right now. For someone who is not a natural at the super hero genre, he handled himself quite well here. Pay attention to the way he draws Darkeid in the nine-panel grid. There is a lot of secondary storytelling hidden in these scenes. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 19, 2018

    This is a hell of an issue and maybe the best reveal in comics in the last decade. This series has been impressive up to this point but this issue cements the maxiseries as a modern classic. With one more issue to go to explain and wrap it all up, this is the true climax that will set up an emotional finale. Read Full Review

    I have said it before, that the parenthood issues that Tom King addresses in Mister Miracle you could fill at least a season of a TV series. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Joe Bainbridge Oct 2, 2018

    A truly superb issue from King and Gerads. The appearance of Darkseid has been built up since the beginning and was awesome. I cannot wait for the next issue Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Sep 19, 2018

    This series has been one hell of a ride so far, and next issue will likely prove to be heart-wrenching, because if my interpretation is correct, Scott will need to face the fact that Jacob isn't real before he can truly escape the false life he's trapped in. I find myself both eagerly anticipating and dreading the final issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Pierre Arnette Sep 19, 2018

    I know this series is coming to a close, but King and Gerads aren't leaving anything on the table. I have been waiting for this showdown with Darkseid since this series began, and I was blown away. It's the ending that left me looking crazy, so I'll be curious to see how they close it out with the next issue. For those invested in the series, you will not be disappointed. For those that haven't jumped on yet, you're crazy, but buy those trades soon as they drop because this series is one to remember. Read Full Review

    It's taken a while for Mister Miracle #11 to get here, with quite a few delays to the last few issues of King and Gerads' DC masterpiece. But when you look at the way every single issue of Mister Miracle delivers on every level, it's well worth the wait. Read Full Review

    That's Entertainment - Capt. Nostalgia Sep 19, 2018

    Overall, Mister Miracle #11, is again a must buy. This series could be one of the best on shelves at the moment. Married together with emotional writing and raw and gripping art. Gerard and King are a pair that can't be touched. Can not, I repeat, can not recommend this book enough. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Sep 19, 2018

    This series has been nothing but a series of hit after hit. A cohesive tale, where each issue deals with a new aspect of the New Gods. This issue will be cited as one of the best to ever feature Darkseid. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Sep 19, 2018

    But while Mister Miracle #11 was another strong issue of a consistently strong miniseries, I feel that everyone will be waiting with bated breath for next month's finale to see whether King and Gerads stick the landing, or if this issue's big twist falls flat. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Nicole Herviou Sep 19, 2018

    The plot of MISTER MIRACLE #11 may give you emotional whiplash, but only in the best way possible. It'll keep you guessing until the very end, as you laugh, cry, and lost your damn mind watching the events unfold. The characters are human and relatable even though they're basically gods. You will feel every moment of this story right along with them. And the immaculate artwork only elevates the book to the next level. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Sep 19, 2018

    And Gerads is just excellent. His art is perfect for this. We are one issue away and he's just killed on the entire series thus far. If it ends as good as it's been, this could be one of the all time great comic book series. I think that it's going to actually happen. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Composto Sep 19, 2018

    Suffice it to say, Mitch is amazing at what he does, and he earned every bit of the Eisner he won. The raw emotion and power he put into this issue is palpable. He'll make you laugh, make you cry, and make you scream expletives for various reasons. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Sep 19, 2018

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 19, 2018

    Tom King and Mitch Gerads give us a penultimate issue that has big moments that are sure to have fans of the series drooling.  I have been vocal about not loving every single page since issue one, but I even got swept up in the mayhem this month.  It's not shocking to say that if you have loved this series so far, that probably won't change...except for what we find out by the end of this issue.  The jury is still out and I will continue to wait for the entire series to end next issue before declaring this anything but one of the better issues so far.  Read Full Review

    The ending is confusing and I severely doubt King will explain it next issue. This was boring and the next issue couldn't come any slower. Read Full Review
