Kirby’s Mister Miracle is getting the “Artist Edition” treatment! Set to arrive in stores in December 2014.
For those that don’t know, Kirby based Mister Miracle on none other than fellow comic artist Jim Steranko!
I talked to Jim about his career as an escape artist some time back and he told me and I’m paraphrasing “I had been chained up and put into a steel box with air holes. Then the box with me in it was dropped into the water. Imagine 20 streams of water hitting you in the head from all sides, It was very disorienting! The box was filling up quickly, I was able to pick the lock to set myself free of the chains and started on the lock on the box. I had been under a long time and was running out of air quick! In record time I picked the last lock and swam to the top, when I emerged from the water the crowd went wild!”
