Mister Miracle #6

Completing the first-half of the twelve-issue maxi-series, Mister Miracle #6 features Mister Miracle and Big Barda fighting their way through New Genesis while discussing/arguing about home renovation. Of all the hero couples, Scott and Barda have always been the most down-to-Earth (which is hilarious because neither is human), in large part to Scott's involvement in the JLI.

While initially appearing nothing more than the family debate between a husband of wife about throwing out old junk, and making room for the future, it slowly becomes obvious that Barda has bigger things on her mind and discussing the more trivial matters (and Scott's negative reaction to change) help her navigate the tricky waters and eventually drop the bombshell that her husband responds to perfectly.

While I haven't been staying up-to-date on this comic, this issue is nearly perfect in and of itself and should work for fans whether or not they care about he larger upheaval on New Genesis or how that ties into our heroes' future. Best of the Week.
