Darkseid has put an offer on the table- something that can end the war between New Genesis and Apokolips once and for all. The stakes are high, but peace is important. Mister Miracle finds himself caught having to make a decision that won't just change the new life he's been building, but potentially the entirety of the universe.

    Comic Book Corps - Pierre Arnette Aug 1, 2018

    Once again, these two killed it on this issue. I can't wait to see what Big Barda and Mister Miracle have planned for Darkseid. I always love seeing these two lovers come together and work out their problems. Like his suicide attempt, which happened in the first issue, it was nice to see it discussed because it did take a toll on Big Barda. Oh, it was nice to see the Boom Tube compared to the Uber app, I thought that was quite funny. Only two issues left, so don't miss out on what I'm sure will be an ending to remember.

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Aug 2, 2018

    This issue is everything the series has been previously "" defined by its nine-panel grids, stunning rendered by artist Mitch Gerads and King's concoction of gallows humor, poignant conversation and brief observations on Earth's mundanities; sometimes all at once. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jami Jones Aug 3, 2018

    Mister Miracle is a harrowing tale of heartbreak and bravery, a symphony of emotion that challenges our understanding of superhero storytelling. Drawing deep from the well of DC history and personal experience, King & Gerads imbue each issue with mystery, love and compassion. It dazzles our eyes while gently reminding us of what it means to be human. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Jul 31, 2018

    What makes Mister Miracle such a special series is how emotionally resonant the story and its characters are. It takes you on a roller coaster of feelings and you fear for every drop but also look forward to what comes next. Two more issues left and you hope things are as uncertain as there were in issue #1. This whole time I've been sitting back and enjoying the ride, but I really don't want this to end. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Aug 1, 2018

    This series has it all: humour, action, drama, suspense, pathos, and a reverential treatment of Kirby's creations. Plus it has a nice allegorical poke at Kirby's partner and nemesis, Stan Lee. With Mister Miracle, King is doing the King proud. Read Full Review

    Mister Miracle #10 is one of the best portrayals of domestic strife and a relationship under pressure that I've ever seen. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Aug 1, 2018

    Its counterintuitive, and in this case almost monstrous, to think of choosing to do nothing to stop a war that could claim millions over the comfort of a single child. And yet. Isaac was not meant to be sacrificed, truly. And these creators know that. His mother knows it. The drama lies in the escape, not the sacrifice. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Aug 1, 2018

    So far, Mister Miracle has been a standout book, but this issue transcends what has come before, hitting a new level of brilliance. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Composto Aug 1, 2018

    Scott considers making a terrible personal sacrifice for the greater good. It's insane when you actually think about it, but to Scott it sort of makes sense. King and Gerads unpack this struggle in simple but powerful ways and show how our personal demons mess with our thought process. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Aug 1, 2018

    The art by Gerads is great. He rightfully got the Eisner Award this year. This is an amazing series. I guarantee that it'll be viewed as a classic in the years to come. It's that good. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Joe Bainbridge Aug 30, 2018

    The issue is an amazing insight into Scott's desperation which spreads throughout the issue and culminates in an awesome ending where he decides he wants to kill Darkseid. I cannot wait for the next issue and I expect it is going to be incredible. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 1, 2018

    This issue ends on a very ominous note and it will be very interesting to see what King and Gerard's have in store for the penultimate issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Aug 1, 2018

    Mitch Gerads has a lot of fun this issue. It may be false positive but Scott Free sports various T-shirts from members of the Justice League and even one of the Sheriff of Babylon! None of this may have any meanings but its fun to see. I recently compared Gerads nine-panel grid with Gary Franks. While Frank focuses subject-to-subject transitions, Gerads uses many repetitions and moment-to-moment transitions. Even though the nine-panel grid has become a fetish and stylistic trick to mark authoritative comic book authorship instead of the genuine, each artist still manages to use it in unique ways.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 7, 2018

    Mister Miracle puts out leads into an impossible spot and forces them to figure out how to deal with it. While a solution is come up with you can see how fraught with problems it is and just how disastrously bad it can go, even if it's the only real one besides simply giving in. And admittedly, that would make for an engaging story to move forward with. King and Gerards takes us through the complicated emotional aspect of this in regards to the relationship at hand and that makes for some really discomforting moments of humanity for all involved.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Aug 3, 2018

    I'm really not sure if this series is trying to build a new reality around the character or just make fun of past incarnations. And I suspect we won't get any real answers until the end of this mini-series (and maybe not even then). But so far, it's compelling stuff. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 1, 2018

    The series is interesting and unique.  But, maybe the problem is our expectations? What if this series was never meant to be an M. Night Shyamalan movie? What if it was just meant to be King's take on humanity, depression, every man, and the struggles of life all through the vantage point of a DC comic character? If that's the case, I think this series is spot on! If you're reading this for some DC mind-shattering event, I just don't think we're going to get it. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Aug 1, 2018

    Mister Miracle #10 grapples with the impossible question posed to Scott and Barda at the end of last issue: would they sacrifice their baby to stop the war with Apokolips? Mister Miracle has dealt with these sorts of terrible and impossible choices with a deft sense of gallows humor, but honestly a lot of the "humor" just falls flat this issue. Read Full Review
