Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham ‘Miracleman’ Series Returns

At last! Just in time for the 40th anniversary of Miracleman’s modern era, Marvel Comics has announced that Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham’s groundbreaking Miracleman: The Silver Age saga will return this October.

Neil and Mark will finally complete their unfinished Miracleman storyline The Silver Age, including remastered editions of the first two published issues, complete with new artwork and bonus material.

The series will follow the previously-announced Miracleman by Gaiman & Buckingham Book 1: The Golden Age TPB, the new collection containing Gaiman and Buckingham’s first Miracleman series.

After 30 years, fans will finally see the full incredible story of Young Miracleman, with more to come in Miracleman: The Silver Age.

Young Miracleman – the lost member of the Miracleman Family – is back! His last memories were of a 1963 world of joy and innocence. Now, he’s been thrust into the 21st century, where his best friends have become gods and monsters. Where can a hero from a simpler time call home in this brave new world?

“We’re back! And after thirty years away it is both thrilling and terrifying,” Buckingham said. “Neil and I have had these stories in our heads since 1989 so it is amazing to finally be on the verge of sharing them with our readers.”

“I have pushed myself to my limit to craft something special for these issues,” he continued. “Cinematic in approach, clean and elegant, drawing on the best of my own style but also paying homage to the exceptional talents of all who came before us, whose unique visions have shaped this ground-breaking series over forty years, and the 1950’s Marvelman foundations on which it was built.”

Do note that the first two issues of the Miracleman: The Silver Age series will be remastered reprints of Miracleman #23 and #24, originally published by Eclipse back in 1992; the first two parts of “The Silver Age,” before the publisher folded.

Miracleman: The Silver Age #1 is on sale in October 2022 from all good comic shops

  1. Good news. Though part of me is saying ‘don’t believe it until you’re holding issue three in your hands’.
