Garry Leach heads to Orbital for Marvel Man… Miracle Man signing


London’s Orbital Comics is to host a signing by the original Marvel Man – sorry, Miracle Man – artist Garry Leach on Wednesday 15th January from 5.00pm.

KIMOTA! With one magic word, a long-forgotten legend lives again! Freelance reporter Michael Moran always knew he was meant for something more — now, a strange series of events leads him to reclaim his destiny!

Relive the ground-breaking 1980s adventures that captured lightning in a bottle — or experience them for the first time — in Marvel’s digitally restored, fully re-lettered editions Issue 1 includes material originally presented in Warrior Issue 1 and Miracleman #1 from Alan Moore (not credited in any Marvel press), Garry Leach, plus the Marvelman Primer. Issue #2 will include material originally presented in Warrior Issue 1-5, plus bonus material.

This is a rare appearance by Garry who hasn’t done a signing like this for years, and it’s all to commemorate the long overdue return of the character.
