Found via the Forbidden Planet blog’s celebration of Mister Miracle for Jack Kirby’s 95th anniversary yesterday – Ramon Perez’ pilot version for a Mister Miracle strip developed for Zuda, DC’s now-defunct webcomics imprint:
i and a handful of others webcomics creators were approached to develop some ideas for new webcomic content for zuda based on existing dc comics properties. we were given free reign as to who to choose from… so i naturally chose my favourite dynamic duo of mr. miracle and big barda! if we had been given the green light i would have been weaving tales on a weekly basis starring perhaps my all time favourite kirby creations! the stories would have been short arcs outside of continuity.an awesome idea, nay, dare i say BRILLIANT!
but, unfortunately, like most brilliantly awesome ideas it never saw the light of day.
Hey, DC. Now that we have a New 52 with which to redevelop characters and concepts, this might be a great time to revisit this…
