Jace chats with writer Varian Johnson about his recently released Young Adult Graphic Novel, Mister Miracle: The Great Escape. Varian talks about his collaboration with artist Daniel Isles and what Daniel’s design sense brought to the project. There is also a lot of discussion about the relatability of the characters in the book as they go through the very formative years of early adolescence. Plus Varian talks about putting his own spin on the classic Jack Kirby creation, Scott Free.
