MIRACLEMAN Series From Neil Gaiman & Mark Buckingham Finally Returns This October After More Than 30 Years
2022 looks set to be the year of Miracleman thanks to Marvel Comics, and the publisher has today announced hat Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham will reteam to conclude a saga they started decades ago...
The wait is finally over!
Just in time for the 40th anniversary of Miracleman's modern era, Marvel Comics has announced that Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham's groundbreaking Miracleman: The Silver Age saga will return this October. The two visionary comic book talents will complete their unfinished Miracleman storyline "The Silver Age," including remastered editions of the first two published issues, complete with new artwork and bonus material.
The series will follow the previously announced Miracleman by Gaiman & Buckingham Book 1: The Golden Age trade paperback, the new collection containing Gaiman and Buckingham's first Miracleman series. After 30 years, fans will finally see the full incredible story of Young Miracleman with more to come.
Young Miracleman, the lost member of the Miracleman Family, is back! His last memories were of a 1963 world of joy and innocence. Now, he’s been thrust into the 21st century, where his best friends have become gods and monsters. Where can a hero from a simpler time call home in this brave new world?
"We're back! And after thirty years away it is both thrilling and terrifying," Buckingham said. "Neil and I have had these stories in our heads since 1989 so it is amazing to finally be on the verge of sharing them with our readers."
"I have pushed myself to my limit to craft something special for these issues. Cinematic in approach, clean and elegant, drawing on the best of my own style but also paying homage to the exceptional talents of all who came before us, whose unique visions have shaped this ground-breaking series over forty years, and the 1950's Marvelman foundations on which it was built."
This is a story comic book fans have literally waited decades for, and the first issue of Miracleman: The Silver Age arrives in stores this October.
