Miracleman Chapter 8: Out of the Dark - Julian Darius

"Chapter eight begins Book One’s home stretch. From here on out, each chapter continues directly into the next, resolving the mysteries of Miracleman’s origin that Moore’s teased since chapter five – and hinted at, to a lesser extent, since chapter one. We’ve already remarked how Moore liked, especially in his work on Warrior, to switch up his narratives, letting chapters have an unexpected narrator, or a surprising viewpoint, as well as a unifying theme or poetic phrase. In this way, individual chapters of a continuing story could surprise the reader not only with their contents but with their style or narrative point of view." 3.5 out of 5
