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 cohesion and consistency. I first credited Neal Adams for inking Oberon, but it appears his styled was emulated by Alan Weiss (Adams did ink the eyes on the opening splash). Of all the inkers, Rogers' Mister Miracle faces and figures had the most aesthetically pleasing results. 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.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
