Mister Miracle v1 #10, 1972 - Of two full splash pages in this issue, a portrait of Mr. Miracle and Big Barda in action (see interior page below) is the most impactful. Perfectly composed, the reader's eye quickly moves from the faint background to the bold foreground. The drawing's crispness and clarity only heighten the effect. Remaining pages are just as dynamic, while introducing the tale's antagonist: a disembodied "Head of the Organization". As the frenzy dies down, Kirby transitions into more dialogue-driven scenes toward story's end. This is number 10 of 18 Mr. Miracle issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
