Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Mister Miracle, the jelly to Orion's peanut butter in Jack Kirby's Fourth World saga, had one of the wildest costumes, coolest concepts (inspired by Jim Steranko's real-life professional escape-artist phase), and superior spouses (well, Big Barda would eventually become M.M.'s spouse) in all of the Groovy Age! Young Groove loved the costumes and action, and even today Ol' Groove still digs the far-out fun of this kool Kirby kreation! The original series ran 18 issues (January 1971-November 1973), making it the longest-lived of the Fourth World mags...Looks like Young Groove wasn't the only fan of red-green-and Barda! Check out these smashing splashes (with inks by the titanic talents of Vinnie Colletta and Mike Royer), baby!
