Mister Miracle #2 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Mister Miracle v1 #2, 1971 - Granny Goodness, one of Mister Miracle's deadliest foes, makes her first appearance. Mean and cantankerous, she is arguably one of Jack Kirby's most original characters (among many) within his Fourth World universe. Kirby's cover is disappointingly staid and less dynamic than his usual effort. His interior story, however, starts with a cleverly paced countdown that leads to two explosive splash pages. The machine-tooled frames on the panels of page 1-3 are details added to increase interest without obstructing the main characters. Kirby continues to entertain readers with new ideas, inventive forms and constantly moving visuals. This is number 2 of 18 Mr. Miracle issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
