Return to Book Page. Predated Watchmen and Comanion Knight, Alan Moore’s Miracleman was the first of the grim, ultra-realistic strips that would change super-hero comics. The Miracleman tells all the behind-the-scenes during its short run at Eclipse Comics and why the final Neil Gaiman-scripted issue was never released. A percentage of profits go to Miracleman artist John Totleben, who is battling the eye disease Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Lists with This Book. Nov 16, Col rated it it was amazing Shelves: There are interviews with almost everyone involved in the creation of the modern incarnation of Miracleman, including writers, artists and editors, as well as with his original creator. Miracleman’s publication history is famously torturous, and there are a lot of lines of tension easily visible between the perspectives of the different interviewees. Of special note is the Neil Gaiman interview, which gives a brief summary of what the future of the series would have been, as well as some unfinished pages from the uncompleted 25th issue.
Miracleman is still not complete as closes out, despite complete purchase by Marvel and Gaiman’s apparent interest in finishing the story. I dearly hope the series will one day be completed, but as the years since Marvel’s acquisition and rereleases slide by, I become less and less hopeful. Nov 06, Dominick rated it liked it Shelves: This is an interesting overview of the Miracleman comic book, consisting mostly of interviews with various involved parties.
I’d have preferred more textual analysis and more commentary, especially on thorny issues like the ownership of the character, but the book is more fannish than analytical. Aug 24, Arthur Blotner added it. Libro sobre Marvelman con algunos aportes a cargo de sus autores.
