    Dont wait for the trade to enjoy this story. Waiting for each episode is a big part of the tension that is building. I can only assume that this talented team will continue to crush the rest of the story and the conclusion in the near future. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 14, 2018

    King and Gerard manage to deliver another stellar issue. Theyve reached a level of sympatico that only the best creative teams have. They perfectly balance mundane with the fantastic in this series, while also making readers question everything theyve just read. The enigma of what is real in the book is a fabulous way to keep readers on the edge of their seats and theyve completely nailed the characterization of every character in the book. Mister Miracle is the kind of comic that only comes around rarely. Its such a perfect encapsulation of everything that can be done with comics and its a book that will be talked about for years to come. This issue further cements it as one of the best books out right now and King and Gerard as a premier storytelling unit. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Mar 15, 2018

    This series continues to be a delight and continues moving in unexpected directions. While I'm not sure I agree with Entertainment Weekly that it's the best comic on the stands, it is certainly near the top and is definitely a unique reading experience. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 14, 2018

    I've loved this series so far even when it has left me scratching my head. This issue though feels like a one-shot you could hand to anyone who has had a kid or expecting and they can relate to it in some way. A fantastic issue overall that had me laughing and is full of quirky heart. For a series that has been so solid, this issue stands out as the best so far. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Mar 15, 2018

    While the first arc began with near-death, the second starts on the cusp of new life, which makes for some dynamite juxtaposition. Despite this difference, the series retains its wry and sardonic tone as it marries comedy and almost-tragedy. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Mar 13, 2018

    This anxiety filled child birth issue of Mister Mircle sucked me in from start to finish. It just casually takes readers through big event to big event. As with the previous issues, I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Mar 14, 2018

    I love this series so much. You know when you just know shit is going to be good? This is by far my favorite iteration of Barda and Scott Free. The risks and unique approach to the New Gods lore by Tom King and Mitch Gerads is how you transform and pay homage to the characters and creators before you. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Brax Mar 16, 2018

    Imagine a comic book that is set almost entirely in a hospital room; it's about a mother giving birth and a father bearing witness. Aside from the birth itself, the only other real action here is choosing a name for the baby " a hilarious process that once again underscores Tom King's wizardry with the written word.

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Mar 14, 2018

    Keeping King’s script tied together is the continually amazing work that Gerads brings to this book. Doing everything himself, the care he takes in bringing out pretty much everything from his art is spectacular and one of the main driving forces of this series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 14, 2018

    Tom King shows that he can write the hell out of a couple having a baby, Mitch Gerads continues to show he is one of the best artists in comics and I was bored the whole time.  I am beyond just wanting answers to what is going on, I need something to keep my interest through an entire issue and sadly, I didn't find that here.

    THIS is how you integrate background lore and a modern narrative. Knowing that Gerads was having a child when this issue was being completed... It seems like it's written for the creative team, and we're just lucky to get to read it. Utterly spectacular in its mundanity.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    They’re having a baby! The Fury’s are there to welcome the new little one. The name Jacob is picked out for the baby because of the ladder Scott used to escape repeatedly called Jacob’s Ladder. And both parents are just as shocked, surprised, and lost as I was the first time around.

    The baby is born but the cord is wrapped around little Jacob to find that he’s not breathing. Scott uses the knife, created from the flesh of Darkseid, to cut the cord and the baby “escapes” death for the first time!

    To anyone who has ever had a child, King hit a home run on the feeling you get before, during, and after childbirth.....The perspective of both the mom and dad.....The stress in the room but the calmness of the nurses and doctors. He did it in such a way that he was able to put a humorous/ loving spin on something dear to everyone’s heart.

    This was such a great read for me, especially being 2 weeks away from the birth of number 3. I’ve said this twice before, I’ll say it again in about two weeks and I’ll say it to all of you now: having a child is the closest you will ever get to being a literal god. That moment of creating life and watching it enter the world... there is nothing that can come close. Think about that and take a reread to the series and see if that changes your mind on the entire comic.

    Lastly, to any of the haters out there feeling lost when reading this series, you have an opinion and that’s fine. But on a recent interview with TK on the Word Balloon podcast, his intent is to let everyone interrupt the comic how they want to for now. But, he will tell us the accurate interruption by the end. Sometimes it’s ok to get the true answer at the end. Is this a dream? Is this the anti life equation? Is he dead? Is this all in his head?

    On the one hand, this story is a 10 - fresh ideas, quality storytelling, great colors, all combining for a terrific read.
    On the other hand, I'm firmly in the "what the heck is going on" column.
    So here is my guess... we are witnessing the greatest escape ever performed by Mister Miracle, we just dont know it yet. My only reason for this is the line "Weren't your eyes blue?" that Scott said to Barda previously.
    That's all I got 😉
    In the meantime, I'm enjoying the ride!

    Meh. Once again I’m waiting for some big reveal or something exciting to happen and what we get is just meh, in my opinion. The art is great as usual but the story i find a bit boring. A whole issue of someone giving birth is not what I find exciting or interesting. I see other people love this book and that’s great, but I still don’t understand why.
