Mister Miracle book discussion

Entertainment Weekly’s best comic of 2018 is up for discussion for our book club meeting in May. Scott Free is the greatest escape artist who ever lived. So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former Female Fury known as Big Barda. 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. You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick-except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.
We’ll be meeting at Destiny City Comics at 218 Saint Helens Ave. You can get the book at Destiny City Comics for 15% off with the book club discount. Stadium District’s comic shop also sells many other fine graphic novels.
