You don’t want to reveal the actual epic that’s inside of you. The core of you. That’s something that you always keep hidden from everyone. The actual struggles you have every day. You make up things, and you say things and biographers or autobiographers write about them. The real hidden secrets and the real hidden battles—that’s the story that you don’t want told. You don’t want that exposed. That’s what we’re doing for Mister Miracle. He’s confronting that part of him that doesn’t want to be told. -- Tom King

Scott faces a choice I think a lot of people have to face, which is you look back on your life and you look back at how you were raised and how your parents raised you, and you’re like, “That kind of messed me up a little bit. I didn’t come up the right way. I want to give my kid the better life.” But then you find yourself in a situation when you have to make the same decisions your parents made and you have to decide if you’re going to make that decision or not. That decision both brings you closer to your parents and alienates you from them. -- Tom King

I’m lucky enough to be madly in love with my wife, and I have been for 17 years. So I think what comes out right now when I write is that, I want to talk about that, how that brings meaning to my life. -- Tom King

I’m not a big plot guy. It’s not my sort of style. But Mister Miracle has a ton of plot and each issue moves the story forward in amazing jumps. The status quo does not stick for even one issue, you know? I think of it like a season of Game of Thrones, where after every episode you’re like, “What just happened? What just happened?” Like that’s what I want for Mister Miracle. -- Tom King

No one can out-Kirby Kirby. You can’t make an epic as great as he did. It’s like trying to make Star Wars again, or like trying to rewrite the Iliad. You can take those grand cosmic space opera themes and internalize them and use them to tell a very personal story. -- Tom King

Every year, one book stands up above everyone else's. Fans and creators alike stop and stare in amazement at a couple of creators finding a new voice, new point of view, and new levels of artistic expression. This year it is MISTER MIRACLE. -- Brian Michael Bendis

Well, I was in wars, right? Like I was there. And looking back at it, I don’t remember the loudness of it. I remember the quiet moments. I remember seeing my wife at the airport, waving good-bye to her. I remember driving in a car with a friend. I don’t know, it’s just where my memory goes, is the quiet moments. So to me, that’s what turns out to define the war, more than the big bang of it. I just sort of remember the small echoes. -- Tom King

I’ve been at this long enough and I know a lot of the creators, and I can see behind comics. I see what you’re trying to do, I see how they did this. I read Kirby’s stuff and I don’t see how they did this. He touched the id of America and let it flow through his fingers. There are a thousand ideas on one page and they don’t add up and then they do add up and they come apart and they come back together. Half of them are an easy metaphor to see and then the metaphor falls apart. It’s just utter insanity. Yet somehow, that utter insanity became the modern myth of America.

You read New Gods, and you say that’s where Star Wars came from. It’s 100%. You can just see it on the page. This is why my kids wear Fantastic Four pajamas. This is why when I walk out in the street every day, I see half of the people wearing superhero t-shirts. This is the spine of our modern American myth, and it came from this outpouring of insanity from a man who, for all accounts and purposes, should have been past his prime. He should have done his best work, but instead, he channeled the energy of this new generation that was rebelling against this new perceived fascism into a child art form. How can you not try to catch that in your hands and do something with it?

You tell me if you feel this way: the world we’re living in now doesn’t make sense to me. I say that not just from a left/right politic thing, but I wake up every day and I see things that I never thought I’d see. I see us close to nuclear war for no reason. I see the Cubs winning the World Series. I see five hurricanes hitting the US. I saw Houston, a city, was drowning. I saw Puerto Rico washed [away]…the world doesn’t make sense anymore. I wanted to write about that, not the politics and all, but that feeling— that paranoid feeling of being trapped in that [and] of wanting to escape. -- Tom King

MISTER MIRACLE is the story of a trapped man who can get out of any trap. It's about the weird that surrounds us now, that seems to push into every aspect of our being, that leaves us questioning the very foundations of our existence: how did I get into this and how the hell do I get out? -- Tom King

We were going to take the bigness of Kirby and turn that into the intimacy of Mister Miracle’s life. Kirby used a metaphor for his time, written in the late ‘60s early ‘70s when the world was going utterly insane. We’re going to use it as a metaphor for our time, the late 2010s, when once again the world is going insane. -- Tom King

from Mister Miracle v.1 #8

Back story here, Scott escapes from Apokolips with some help from Barda and the Furies. While she had the chance to go with him, Barda chose to stay behind only to show up in his kitchen and threatening Oberon sometime later.

So, at that point she'd left the Furies. Hell, she'd even fought some who'd come after her and Scott. So, what kind of welcome does she get when her and Scott head back to Apokolips to handle some unfinished business?

This is cut from Mister Miracle, Volumn 2, #11(22 pages). Scott and Barda settle in the small town of Bailey, Connecticut, trying to have what they think is a "normal" life and so far, it hasn't been so successful. Trying to maintain a secret identity while being attacked by an arch-nemesis, drone clones and various other problems, has pushed scott to the limits of his patience.
