Hitting shelves on Jan. 18 2022, “Mister Miracle: The Great Escape” is DC’s newest young adult graphic novel that provides a fresh look into DC’s iconic character Scott Free aka Mister Miracle.
Desperate to leave Apokolips, an oppressive world ruled by Lord Darkseid, Scott’s great escape will take nothing short of a miracle as no one has ever left the planet on their own free will. A student at the Goodness Academy, Scott brews up a foolproof plan to escape to planet Earth — all while struggling to understand his identity, PTSD from growing up in the fire pits of Apokolips, and somehow falling in love with his number one enemy, Big Barda, who has made keeping Scott on Apokolips her number one priority.
Crafted by Coretta Scott King Honor-winning author Varian Johnson (“The Parker Influence”) and Afro-futurist artist Daniel Isles (@DirtyRobot), this coming of age tale follows Scott as he escapes from oppressive forces. Not only does Scott Free’s plan have to work for Scott to make it out alive — but his found family’s freedom depends on it.
“Mister Miracle: The Great Escape” marks both Johnson and Isles’ debut project with DC and is scheduled to hit stores and online retailers everywhere books are sold on Jan. 18, 2022.
