Mister Miracle v1 #8, 1972 - The last of the 52 pagers in this series, Jack Kirby's art continues to entertain and delight. His two full page splashes and roomy panels are this time overshadowed by one of his best double page spreads. Upon entering the barracks of the Female Fury Battalion, Big Barda witnesses a chaotic array of woman warriors. Kirby's complex layout is perfectly balanced with a clear hierarchy of figures, each creatively and individually costumed. An added bonus this issue is the reprinting of the first appearance of the Boy Commandos, created by Simon & Kirby and first presented in Detective Comics #64. This is number 8 of 18 Mr. Miracle issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
