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 […]

Miracleman to Star in Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham’s Marvel Comics #1000 Page

We already knew that Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham would be amongst the very large, very Al Ewing heavy creative team lineup of Marvel Comics #1000. We also know that the pair are working on finally wrapping up Miracleman… er… eventually. But at San Diego Comic-Con today, Marvel revealed that the pair’s story in Marvel […]

Neil Gaiman/Mark Buckingham Miracleman Announcement at Cup O’ Joe on Friday?

Yesterday morning Bleeding Cool read the runes in the Marvel Spotlight magazine with a new ad for the Miracleman collections amongst all the launching titles.

Detective Comics #973 Review: The Victimization of Clayface

Clayface, empowered and driven madder by the excess clay from the Belfry’s Mudroom, is now raging across Gotham City. Orphan is worried for her friend, Red Robin is out of commission, and Batman’s only hope is that Dr. October may have a solution. Batwoman has a different answer in the form of a rifle given […]

SDCC Marvel Cup O’ Joe Panel Report: Lackluster And Boring

The big Marvel news panel of SDCC rolls around again, so we will see what kind of announcements and news chief creative officer Joe Quesada has in store for us this time.

New Miracleman Is Published Today. Kind Of.

A long time ago Miller & Sons published Captain Marvel reprints in Britain. Then, as a result of the DC Vs Fawcett trial, the source of those reprints vanished. So Mick Anglo was hired to create a lookey-likey strip, Marvelman, which was successful in the fifties but mostly forgotten since. Until it was revived for […]

Issues 1,2 and 3 had been solicited for 2016 but […]

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 […]

Mindless Speculation: What Marvel DIDN’T Announce at NYCC

By Joe Glass I came away from NYCC at the start of this week with one overwhelming feeling: there wasn’t much in the way of major comics announcements. Sure, there were announcements, such as Marvel’s Spider-Women and Avengers: Standoff, and there was more information about recently revealed projects, and the odd bit of tantalizing new […]

The F Word – Paper Girls And Miracleman

Last month, Bleeding Cool featured a report on the Whatever store, a San Francisco comic book-and-related shop run by this married couple, Rich and Cougar. This week they posted, regarding the new Paper Girls comic book from Brian K Vaughan and Cliff Chiang from Image Comics, an eighties-set “Stand By Her” type drama. They wrote, […]

Don’t Call Captain America A Virgin…

It was a different time, 1939. But, you know, not that different. Soldiers basically got up to what their modern day handbooks tell the they probably shouldn’t get up to. But do anyway. And as we discovered, often through Ashley Madison. But what about Steve Rogers? Well, it looks like it came down to Bucky […]

A Comic Show – Bombshells And Aliens

Aaron Haaland of A Comic Shop in Orlando, Florida, writes: Hey Fandom, I’m back with another week of New Comics Now.

Why Si Spurrier’s Crossed +100 Is Like Neil Gaiman’s Miracleman

Alan Moore and Gabriel Andrade finished their first arc of Crossed +100, the Crossed story set a hundred years in the future. And, in this changed world with a language as unfamiliar to us, as we would sound to those in Elizabethan England, with a Crossed or “churchfaced” population having died out, or self selected so […]

How The Remastered Miracleman By Gaiman And Buckingham Compares To The Original

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 […]
