Marvel Puts Gaiman And Buckingham’s Miracleman On Hold… For Now

I noted that the Neil Gaiman/Mark Buckingham remastered reprints and new chapters of their Miracleman run from Marvel Comics were missing from recent Marvel Previews. But I put that down to the usual delays that have accompanied this series over the last thirty-five years.

I didn’t know the half of it.

Marvel Comics have told retailers that the first three solicited issues of Miracleman By Gaiman And Buckingham: The Silver Age have been cancelled by Marvel. Retailers have been told they will be resolicited at a later date.

The solicitation for issue 3, just seems to mock, now…

• The wait is over!
•  Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham present the story you’ve waited decades for – the first ALL-NEW chapter in “The Silver Age!”
•  High atop the Himalayas, Dicky Dauntless searches to find his place in the Age of Miracles. He’ll make new friends and encounter a frightening, familiar face – Johnny Bates!
•  It’s Young Miracleman and Kid Miracleman face-to-face!

Here are a look at the covers to those even-more-delayed-than-expected issues. June is the earliest they can return and it could be later than that.
