What do you do after the most death-defying act of your escape artist career? You go to war, of course! Scott Free has skipped out on his trip to the great beyond and taken a boom tube to New Genesis instead, where he and his wife, Big Barda, take on the invading hordes of Apokolips. Things are a little off, however, and Mister Miracle starts to doubt why he's fighting when Orion takes over the mantle of Highfather. It's enough to make a New God miss Granny Goodness's orphanage! From Eisner Award-nominated writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads, the team that brought you THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON and the recent Swamp Thing crossover in BATMAN #23!

Tom King's not Alan Moore, he's just playing him in the funnies. If you liked the Vision, or just like the feeling of dread being injected into you through your eyeballs, this is the book for you. If you're a New Gods fan, there's some big things-a-brewin' behind the bars of this nine panel cage.
It's a weirdly vibrant, Vertigosque project that seems very alien, yet familiar at the same time. Imagine, if you will, the film Meet the Parents directed by Ingmar Bergman.
Perhaps this is what weaponized nostalgia feels like.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
