Pages Of Miracleman Triumphant, Recovered , But Are There Any More Out There?

miracleman-01Back in 1992, Brazilian creators Mike Deodato Jr and Jason Minor were drawing Miracleman Triumphant, written by Fred Burke. It was never published.

Intended to explore the gap between the end of the Gaiman and Buckingham’s first and second arc, the Golden Age and Silver Age, as Eclipse folded, so did the book.

Deodato told Brazilian site Judao that the pages completed have disappeared, send to Eclipse and never returned. Deodato had only four photocopies of pencils. Minor still has four pages he was inking when Eclipse folded, and a few more photocopies. But together they make a significant chunk of what would have been the first issue.

“Marvel has so far not approached me about it,” said Deodato. “I’d love to see it published or even have the chance to draw new material for the character, but depends on them.”

After telling Judeo this, he was then called by Marvel to draw a cover for the republication of the series.Pádraig Ó Méalóid had previously reported of Eclipse;

they were also planning a series called Miracleman: Triumphant which, according to yronwode, was to have been plotted and co-edited by Gaiman (although he claims to have no knowledge of this), and which would fill in the ten-year gap between the last events in Moore’s story and Gaiman’s story starting. This was to be written by Eclipse editor Fred Burke and drawn by Mike Deodato Jr, but never actually came about, although one issue was written and drawn up, apparently, and ads for it appeared in some issues of Miracleman.

And cat yronwode had replied in comments;

How odd that Neil Gaiman “claims to have no knowledge” of the “Miracleman Triumphant” mini-series by Fred Burke and Mike Deodato, Jr. I certainly recall our having an editorial discussion by phone about this proposed “continuity implant” and i recall us working out a storyline that would not interfere with anything he had planned. Shortly thereafter, Fred, Mike, and i were given the go-ahead by Jan and Dean to start the work. Later, when Eclipse was falling apart, i called Gaiman, among other creators, to arrange the return of material (which he has acknowledged that i did) — and at that time i asked him what he wanted me to do about the “Miracleman Triumphant” art, as i figured he was somehow a co-owner of it, and might find a new publisher for the series. He told me that he didn’t want it sent to him as he had not directly worked on it. So i didn’t send it to him. He certainly knew it existed, even though he has forgotten it now.

Anyone want to ask Todd McFarlane if he’s seen any pages? Could they be with the stack he sent to Gaiman back in the day?
