Marvel Comics #1000 Second Printing Will Have a Miracleman Cover

I know the power of a Miracleman cover. Mark Buckingham drawing him on the cover of Dirtbag #2, published by my own Twist & Shout Comics back in the early nineties, means it now sells on Amazon for plenty money. Especially after Mike Meyer and I pulped the remaining 2000 copies of the initial 3000 […]

Manhunter #1 Review: Manhunter Likes Hunting Man

DC continues with their dive into Jack Kirby with a return of Manhunter. Though he is oddly dressed like one of the Manhunters that preceded the Green Lantern Corps of Oa, this is actually the Manhunter known as Paul Kirk, another of Kirby’s creations. This Manhunter is most known for the actions of his clone, […]

Tony Lee talked about running the comic book side of the London Film And Comic Con on Bleeding Cool yesterday. Well, it seems that I am going to be giving him an even greater headache. I will be at the London Film And Comic Con as a guest. I’ll have a table and everything. But it […]

Temple Of Art: The SDCC Panel You Didn’t Know You Didn’t Want To Miss

I’d been looking forward to the Temple of Art panel for a while, but I’m guessing that since it was at 8 p.m. on Saturday night at SDCC, most people did not have it on their radar. With a panel that included filmmakers Allan Amato and Olga Nunes, as well documentary subjects Bill Sienkiewicz, David […]

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 […]

Next Week… I’ll Be At London Super Comic Con. Will You?

It’s my gaff. My manor. My part of the world. The London Super Comic Con, the largest comic convention in the UK that’s dedicated to comic books, is happening next weekend at the ExCel Centre. Bob Layton once told me that he earned more money at that show than any other. It’s where the wallets […]

Marvel are pushing the relaunch of Miracleman, the Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham run, ahead of the Final Order Cut-off date.  And they have released the following pages of Miracleman By Gaiman & Buckingham #1. So I thought I’d compare them to the printed version of Miracleman #17 when it was published by Eclipse. Let’s […]

Finally – Jeph Loeb And Tim Sale’s Captain America: White #1 Published In September

In 2008, Marvel Comics published Captain America White #0 by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Another of their “colour” volumes that would include Daredevil Yellow, Spider-Man Blue and Hulk Grey, there were sadly no subsequent issues of the expected six-issue series. Well, at the C2E2 Retailer Breakfast held this morning, and attended by Bleeding Cool’s David […]

A New Miracleman #1 For Neil Gaiman And Mark Buckingham’s Golden Age

From the inside page of today’s Miracleman #16, published by Marvel Comics and reprinting and remastering the original issue by Alan Moore and John Totleben, concluding Moore’s run on the character he so effectively revived. Rereading it, it is as majestic as I remembered, and with a final moment that effectively (and intentionally) undermines everything […]
