Spinning out of DC Future State, the story of how Shilo Norman became the Mister Miracle of tomorrow starts here.
The Mister Miracle show used to be the hottest ticket in town, whether you caught him onstage escaping from perilous traps or spotted him on the streets of Metropolis taking out bad guys. What Shilo Norman forgot is the first rule of both showbiz and super-heroing: always leave them wanting more. Now it’s time to start showing the world what a miracle man can do. Showbiz/superhero rule #2: timing is everything. There’s a new performer in town who wants to knock Mister Miracle off his pedestal and stake a claim to his fa more

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 25, 2021

    Mister Miracle: The Source of Freedom #1is packed full of all the death-defying thrills and Kirby Krackle that you've come to expect from the titular escape artist. With a jaw-dropper of a cliffhanger, the creative team may have placed Shilo Norman into a trap he can't easily escape from. I hope to see what else this series has in store for the rest of its run.

    What made me give the story a shot in the first place was Fico Ossio's art. He's done some great work and did not disappoint in Mr. Miracle: The Source of Freedom #1. But now, I want to see Easton's story through. He's got a lot to address in six issues, but it's a subject very much worth investing in. Read Full Review

    A lot of DC books have been unafraid to take on racial issues lately, but this is one of the most explicit. When it works, it really works"but unfortunately, it struggles with making Shiloh Norman a character we want to invest in. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 25, 2021

    Brandon Easton kicks off his Mister Miracle series with an issue that didn't give me much of a connection to his lead character but made me want to see more of his plight and fight.  Those unfamiliar with Shilo Norman may wonder what's going on, but the issue looks great and has a very intriguing cliffhanger.  I am not sold on this book just yet, but Easton at least has me interested.

    I enjoyed the Mr. Miracle from FS so I was looking forward to this. I couldn't be more disappointed. Another race-baiting comic that at times was actually pretty racist. And after the cliffhanger, I'm sure it will get even worse.

    A black guy telling a Jew that he doesn’t know what it’s like to be looked down upon because of race comes across as a little tone deaf considering the recent rise in anti-Semitism

    Much better than the Future State back-ups, so of course people with bad taste dislike it.

    I don't like the art but the colors are very well done. The idea of Mr Miracle as a brand is interesting, the soial commentary is also nice. It looks like the villain will be good.

    A decent first entry, which I'm looking forward to seeing unfold over time. I have some reservations for the art though, which is hit or miss depending on the page.
