I loved the first issue of this book, as I have stated elsewhere.
Just when a smile came to my face as I realized that Oberon was Danny DeVito, they pulled the rug out from under me.
The reaction of Barda when she found Scott was spot-on.
Orion showing up was interesting and made sense (as awful as his tactics were). Highfather walking along the beach with Scott was great to see. And then Barda and Scott having to deal with a bigger crisis right in the middle of the immediate crisis was just like life--stuff doesn't happen in a timeline that makes sense or is convenient.
What a great exploration of mental illness this appears to be. Scott Free is the last character I would expect this from, but I think that's probably the point. Everyone has struggles that no one knows about, and entertainers seem to be susceptible for whatever reason.
I'm already looking forward to owning the Deluxe Edition in hardback. For the next year, I know I'm going to get something good at least once a month.
There was a TPB collection listed on Amazon, which was withdrawn. Might still be there.

Oh, you know that this will be collected in one big fat deluxe hardcover...probably about a year after it's completed. That's what I'm holding out for.

Hey Mister Miracle fans!
Issue #6, the conclusion of the first storyline, came out on Jan 10. The series returns with #7 on March 14.
I did some online searching but unfortunately I didn't find any info on this series being collected. I'm sure it will, later in 2018.
I'm actually kind of astonished that there's no TPB collection before issue 7 comes out. This seems like the perfect series for DC to test out the Image model of tradepaperbackery (five or six issues, a hiatus, and the next issue hitting soon after the first collection).
