Mister Miracle #1

DC Comics

(W) Tom King (A) Mitch Gerads (CA) Nick Derington

Scott Free is the greatest escape artist that ever lived.

Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks.

Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out. Mature Readers.
