Mister Miracle #19 - Marshall Rogers art & cover, non-attributed Neal Adams art


Mister Miracle v1 #19, 1977 - DC revives this unique series originated by Jack Kirby. While on their honeymoon, Scott Free and Barda are interrupted by a bevy of old foes from Apokolips. Marshall Rogers presents a fresh new interpretation of the characters, most evident on his splendid cover. His interior story, however, is a bit more muddied. Each character is inked by a different artist, sacrificing consistency. Among them, Neal Adams does the most credible job (assigned to the dwarf Oberon). Rogers inks his own Mister Miracle figures with similar success. Overall though, the results are less than satisfying. This is number 1 of 6 Mister Miracle issues with Rogers art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Mister Miracle issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Rogers, Adams or Mister Miracle issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist, Top 10 Adams comics, Rogers checklist or Top 10 Rogers comics.
