It looks as though comic book fans have a frontrunner for the best story of the year: DC’s Mister Miracle, written by Tom King with art by Mitch Gerads.
If you want to know why DC is churning out successful projects like Rebirth, The Button, Metal — and know Mister Miracle — while Marvel is … turning Captain America into a Hydra goon, then all you have to do is look at each company’s business model — DC is consciously focusing on the craft of writing while Marvel embraces partisan politics.
If you want to see how to save the comics industry, then pick up a copy of Mister Miracle #1. Companies that think big and shoot for the starts will be rewarded. Companies that pander to partisan activists while demonizing fans, in the long-run, will be punished. It’s really that simple.
