Miracleman Chapter 4: Dragons - Julian Darius

"“Dragons” opens with another image of the Sunburst Cybernetics skyscraper. Over the first few panels, the captions recap the Miracleman Family story. They call the old Miracleman Family villains “monsters and dragons.” When recounting Young Miracleman’s death, the caption reads, “One up to the dragons” (meaning, “score one for the dragons”). When recounting Miracleman’s rebirth, the caption states that “it wasn’t until today that he remembered about the dragons…” When recounting Kid Miracleman’s story, the captions state: “Without the other two heroes to bother him, he could do whatever he liked… / He grew up. He grew up into a dragon.”" 4 out of 5
