Miracleman by Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham: Preview!

Miracleman 1 Main How Miracleman came to land at Marvel is a story unto itself (a little on that here) but it’s a big deal, no less the material finally seeing the light of day from Messr’s Gaiman, Buckingham and D’Israeli. And #1 of Miracleman: The Golden Age is, of time of writing, about to be published!
Read on for the press release from Marvel and see below our preview of the opening sequence and more including variant cover art; we might add that variant covers are something we normally leave for the specialist sites but, again, this is just something a bit special…

From Marvel:

On September 2nd, two comic icons bring you the series that changed comics forever. And at long last – it will finally be complete. A tale that began 25 years ago begins anew this September in MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN & BUCKINGHAM #1! Visionary comic legends Neil Gaiman (Sandman, 1602) and Mark Buckingham (Fables) bring you a new Age of Miracles and a story of epic proportions! Kicking off The Golden Age storyline, then continuing into the famously unfinished The Silver Age & The Dark Age story arcs, Gaiman & Buckingham’s lost Miracleman story will finally see the light of day!

Uttering a single, long-forgotten word, Michael Moran transformed from the ordinary into the extraordinary – and Miracleman was born! Years out of print and left unfinished, Marvel comics is pleased to bring these trailblazing and genre defining stories to an entire new generation of fans. Now is the chance to jump on board one of the most groundbreaking stories in comic history before these two industry legends bring you it’s cataclysmic conclusion a quarter century in the making!

Reuniting with series colorist D’Israeli and award-winning letterer Todd Klein to create the each issue of Gaiman & Buckingham’s run has been remastered directly from the original artwork. Each issue also features extensive additional content including scripts, original art, sketches, rare promotional pieces – and more! Look for this exciting jumping on point on September 2nd when MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN & BUCKINGHAM #1 makes its triumphant return to comic shops!
