Neemo, Skeemo, Preemo

"Neemo, Skeemo, Preemo" from Mister Miracle vol.2 #2 (DC, 1989) by J.M. DeMatteis and Ian Gibson
Scott Free shot out of JLI to a series of his own once again, this time a sort of domestic comedy set in suburbia where it was clearly impossible for Scott and Barda to have a normal, peaceful life. Not when the New Gods or Forever People are always dropping by for a barbecue. Looking at it now, none of the art is too spectacular after Ian Gibson's original arc, but I don't remember minding at the time. If neither Blue nor Gold could have their own series, then Mister Miracle, ever the third man in their little comedy team, would do very well, thank you. And hey, at 28 issues, it's still the longest-lasting attempt at a Miracle series!
