Shilo Norman will take the spotlight in a six-issue series from Brandon Easton and Valentine De Landro.
Shilo Norman, the Mister Miracle currently appearing in two of DC’s Future State Superman titles, will get his own miniseries in May. Brandon Easton and Valentine De Landro, who worked on the Mister Miracle story in Superman: Worlds of War, are also working on the miniseries.

Shilo Norman was introduced in the early 1970s in the pages of Mister Miracle by Jack Kirby. He became a protege of Scott Free, the original Mister Miracle, and appeared in the Seven Soldiers events series written by Grant Morrison.
