In today’s Mister Miracle #12, the final issue, which really didn’t go where I had been expecting the last eighteen months, we do get a nod to how much of himself Tom King has put into this comic, with Mitch Gerads. He has been open as to how autobiographical the comic book has gotten, detailing the domestic lives of Scott Free and Big Barda going through pregnancy, birth and what comes afterwards… as well as visitations by the New Gods and Apokalips getting all up inside their jam. If they were even there in the first place.
With a certain change in mind… the concept of mirrors and reflection impacting upon his decision.
For Tom King to prepare us with an action of his own.

I do hope you like your comic books meta-textual and over easy in the morning…
MISTER MIRACLE #12 (OF 12) (MR)
(W) Tom King (A) Mitch Gerads (CA) Nick Derington
It’ll be a miracle if you can get through this mind-bending conclusion with your sanity intact! After his epic battle with Darkseid, Scott Free sees life a whole new way: he’s the new Highfather of New Genesis, and he’s madly in love with his wife and child. But what if it’s all a lie? Did Mister Miracle really escape death way back in issue #1? No one really knows but Tom King and Mitch Gerads!
