Gaiman & Buckingham’s ‘Miracleman’ Run Will Return To Shops For Character’s 40th Anniversary

Share This Post

Following the herald of his return Timeless #1 and the announcement of an all-new omnibus, Marvel Comics continues to mark the 40th anniversary of Miracleman’s modern era with a new printing of award-winning writer Neil Gaiman and artist Mark Buckingham’s redefining work on the character.

Arriving in October, Miracleman By Gaiman And Buckingham:The Golden Age TPB #1 will collect the first six issues of Miracleman By Gaiman And Buckingham. Gaiman and Buckingham’s take on Miracleman laid the groundwork for a fascinating future for the legendary super hero—a future that will now come to pass! Available for the first time in paperback, the Miracleman By Gaiman And Buckingham: The Golden Age TPB will give fans a chance to revisit this beloved era of Miracleman ahead of the exciting plans Marvel has in store for the iconic character later this year.

Originally a legally distinct copy of Captain Marvel for the UK, Marvelman (as he was known) was one of the first places comic legend Alan Moore made his mark, with the name eventually changing to Miracleman to avoid conflicts with Marvel. Gaiman took over the series from Moore in 1990, with Buckingham on art. Their run ended when publisher Eclipse went bankrupt.

Atop Olympus, Miracleman presides over a brave new world forged from London’s destruction. It is a world free of war, of famine, of poverty. A world of countless wonders. A world where pilgrims scale Olympus’ peak to petition their living god, while miles below the dead return in fantastic android bodies. It is an Age of Miracles — but is humankind ready for it? Do we even want it? Is there a place for humanity in a world of gods? Gaiman and Buckingham delve into the lives of lonely idealists, rebellious schoolchildren and fracturing families, exploring the human constant in a changing world of gods and miracles.

Check out the cover below and stay tuned for more exciting announcements about Miracleman in the coming months!
