Comic Review: Mister Miracle #1

 

Mister-Miracle-1-Cover-ColorMister Miracle #1 (DC Comics)

This may sound blasphemous to some, but I’ve never been able to quite crack the New Gods. While I like Darkseid and Mr. Miracle and have read the major aspects of Jack Kirby’s saga, there’s always been some part of them that just seemed too weird to me, so I’ve largely missed out on a huge chunk of necessary comic book lore. But with Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ Mister Miracle, that’s definitely going to change. This opening issue is not only another notch in the awesome body of work from these two creators; it’s also the thing that finally clicked with me when it comes to the New Gods.

Mister Miracle finds Scott Free living in Los Angeles with his girlfriend Big Barda (pretty sure my feeling of weirdness towards the New Gods comes from their names). After attempting suicide, Scott has been seeing visions of people and things that cannot possibly be real. Scott’s also been visited by Orion and his father Highfather with a warning that Darkseid has found the Anti-Life Equation and is planning on launching his massive war against New Genesis. But Scott can’t find it within himself to get up and fight. It’s not until another tragedy befalls his family that he really steps up and decides to enter the fray.

Tom King has been making quite the name for himself on Sheriff of Babylon, Vision, and Batman, but with Mister Miracle he reaches a whole other level. Scott Free seems bored with his life, and King makes the comparison with Scott’s abilities as an escape artist with someone who’s immortal. When there’s no more danger, what else can you do? The reveal of Scott’s attempted suicide at the beginning of the book is pretty shocking, but amazingly King makes you feel for Scott as he struggles with his life and whatever is happening to him after the attempt. Plus King expertly works in a small building sense of dread at the growing threat of Darkseid.

Mitch Gerads has worked with Tom King before on Sheriff of Babylon and some issues of Batman, but he really makes a huge impact here.. Gerads has always had a great sense of scope and body language, and Mister Miracle is arguably the best work he’s done to date as he plays around with panel layouts, delivering everything from 9 panel grids to massive splash pages. Not only that, but Gerads also puts everything he can into his character work. You can sense the pain and confusion on not only Scott, but Barda as well. It’s stunning.

Mister Miracle has a lot of hype surrounding it, and I’m pleased to say that it definitely meets up with that hype. As someone who has been looking for an easy entry point into the New Gods, Tom King and Mitch Gerads deliver on that front, giving us a relatable character that also sums up his life and the New Gods saga perfectly. It also doesn’t hurt that King and Gerads are two of the best creators in the business, and deliver one of the coolest debut issues of the year.

Comic Review: Redlands #1

 

Redlands #1 (Image Comics)  1_medium

For some reason, mixing supernatural things with the South just works for me. It might be the culture of New Orleans, or the fact that it’s always super hot and swampy, but there’s a good chance that if you set something spooky in the South, I’ll give it a read. Redlands from Jordie Bellaire and Vanessa Del Rey fits into that category soundly. A comic about witches in Florida, Redlands#1 ends up being a really cool and spooky opening issue that promises a pretty awesome series to come.

The entirety of this issue focuses on a Sheriff and his police force held up in their headquarters. Surrounded by an unseen force, things gradually start to go bad for them. The lights go off on their own. Strange chants are heard outside. The prisoners start to go crazy and taunt the police. The Sheriff knows that he took care of the strange women who were haunting their town hours before. But he should’ve been more careful with his victims.

Jordie Bellaire is a name you’ve probably seen countless times in comics. As the go to colorist for seemingly every publisher, she’s got more comic book credits than anyone else in the business. Well, you can now add “writer” to those credits, because she knocks it out of the park with Redlands. Bellaire does a fantastic job of setting up the tension in this opening issue, and I love the fact that she resisted the idea of just giving us the exposition dump that befalls so many debut issues of Image series.

Vanessa Del Rey’s art is a great fit for Bellaire’s script. While it’s a little looser than I typically like, it works really well for the creepy nature of this comic. Del Rey’s art is super cool and moody, and there are definitely some panels that will stick with you for a long time, and probably keep you up at night.

Redlands is a pretty great surprise, and I cannot recommend it enough for horror fans. Longtime readers of these reviews know my love for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and I really think that Redlands has the potential to fit right in with that series. If you’re looking for a comic to really unsettle you, then look no further than Redlands.

“Go Then, There Are Other Worlds Than These”

It’s always interesting to be in the aftermath of something that didn’t live up to your expectations. Now that we live in a post DarkTower movie world, I’m struggling with what I thought of the movie. Of course, I didn’t think it was a great adaptation, or one even worthy of the name The Dark Tower, but it’s also not as terrible as the reviews would have made it seem. Sony, director Nikolaj Arcel, and even Stephen King himself have made it known the plans for this franchise, but now that the dust has settled and the movie is out, I’m left with one question: what now?

Mere hours before the Thursday previews began (and after the reviews hit), Sony made a lot of noise announcing that their spin off TV show, based off the fourth book in the series Wizard and Glass, found a show runner in The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzarra.  Despite saying that the TV series would “follow the books as closely as possible”, I’m still not sold on this idea. For one, it seems awfully convenient for Sony to announce this right after the brutal reviews hit for the movie, and also, there’s no network attached to the series, so it’s entirely possible that this will never see the light at day.

But, a TV show could be just the thing to right the Dark Tower ship. While the movie is okay, it’s not nearly as good as the source material deserves. Marvel had great success adapting Wizard and Glass for the Gunslinger Born miniseries. In fact, that miniseries served as my introduction into the world of DarkTower. As much as I love The Gunslinger, it is a lot easier to set up the series for regular audiences by showing the adventures of Roland as a teenager and introducing Mid-World before it all gets destroyed.

But if I’m being honest, the under performance of The Dark Tower could taint the brand for quite some time. Perhaps it’s better for all involved if the franchise is put on the shelf for a few years and then adapted again. It worked for the Hannibal Lecter franchise and Westworld, so I can’t help but think that it wouldn’t work well for DarkTower either. A channel like HBO, Starz, AMC, or FX would be able to give the story the length it needs to hook audiences, and provided they can give the project the budget it needs, could be a sizeable hit.

While it’s a bummer that Dark Tower wasn’t the movie I was hoping for, at the very least it’s gotten the name into the public consciousness and has maybe gotten a few people to read the series. Who knows, maybe one of those people will grow up to be a creative force in Hollywood that can get the right financial backing to give the series the adaptation it deserved the first time around.

After all, there are other worlds than these.
