Thanks ComicRelief! I put both these down on my pull list for tomorrow West Coast time. So I'm glad to hear, because I enjoy a ton of Cullen Bunn, especially Image's Regression. So excited for that and reading about Gasolina I was intrigued, so I can't wait I'll be heading to my local comic shop asap tomorrow. Thanks again.

I love Juan Doe's art is really, really good perfect for this story from what I read about. Like a lot of Bunn's work and I ordered cover B the Phil Hester cover cos that was bad ass, but I'm gonna get Juan's cover A as well. Thanks for the heads up!

Mechanical Mudd reviewed Mister Miracle #1 Aug 10, 2017
4.0

This was an awful story. The art was some of the worst that I've seen in weeks. My exposure to Mister Miracle before now was his time with the JLI and that is not what I got here. I assume this book would be enjoyable closer to Tom Kings fantastic Grayson run but it looks like it's closer to his mediocre Batman work. I would not recommend this story to anyone.

Raptor was completely seeley's creation not an element from a previous run, and you think its boring. You think Pigeon and Defacer are great!? As if more reason to dismiss you opinion was needed after giving this masterpiece a 4.0

Mechanical Mudd - Aug 12, 2017

No Raptor is a garbage rip off of Tiger from Grayson, and enjoyable characters in Nightwing are the Runoffs. As for King's Batman, I Am Gotham was a Masterpiece and I did enjoy I Am Bane, but I Am Suicide, Jokes and Riddles, that Rooftops thing, and even the Button sucked in my opinion. I think King has a lot going in this story like the possibility that everything is a lie created by the Apokoliptians to trick Mr. Miracle, but I still stand at 4/10 regardless.
