Great Covers – MISTER MIRACLE #3

When Jack Kirby went over to DC in the early 1970s, he wasn’t a great fit in terms of the office’s aesthetic, and they often had no idea what to do with him or his work. Take this MISTER MIRACLE cover, for example. For some reason, they decided not to color the central figure, but rather to leave him black and white. It does make him pop on the cover, but it’s a really weird choice, it makes the whole cover seem unfinished–it feels like a mistake or a printing error rather than a creative choice.
