Just closed the deals on #15 and #16 of Miracleman. Only decided to go for this run about two weeks ago and am now complete except for #12, 23 and 24.

I guess I am taking a wee bit of a chance with #15 as the seller has relatively low feedback and tghe scan is not the best, but what the hell, the risk might well be worth taking.

#16 is the book I posted about that is missing the upper staple.

It sems to be a hot back issue that is undervalued. Also the title is tied up in litigation and may never be reprinted.

As for whether it is any good or not, I will let you know once I have read the books..... next time I am back home.

It's a great series and well worth the trouble to seek out. Basically it's Captain Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr. and Mary Marvel as if they really existed and what would happen if they could see that the possibility existed that they could be gods on earth. Would they be upright and good or could they possibly go insane with power? This series kind of answers all the questions one could have, and then it takes it to other levels. The Alan Moore issues deal with the basic relationships of the characters and their power, relationships, etc. And then Neil Gaiman takes over for the last few issues to get into what society would be like if Superheroes might be in charge. That's all a basic outline of what to expect. It was really the first of the so-called revisionist superhero idea, and it's got some great bits, issue 15 being a major one. If you can't find the issues, they were collected into trade paperbacks and hardcovers with the exception of the last 2 issues, if I remember correctly. The series does remain unfinished, but the first 16 issues do tell a totally contained story, as do issues 17-22 (I think) which is subtitled The Golden Age. You won't be sorry if you make the effort to find these books, and you should be aware of a book published by TwoMorrows Press titled Kimota - The Miracleman Companion. It tells the whole story of the reason why this series may never be reprinted. It's a great book on comics, as well, and easily worth your time searching for it, especially if you've got questions about the series and aren't sure whether it's worth the investment of time and money! It's one of Alan Moore's best works, and the John Totleben(?) issues are beautiful, artwise!

For anyone who wants to know what the hype is about Miracleman its really simple.  It's one of the best comics ever written, on par with Watchmen and books of that quality but incredibly difficult to locate and read.   One of the best comic stories ever.  psst... #15 is'nt that hard to locate, it's the last issue that make you call all over the country looking for it.  Also, Warrior has a few(maybe only 1 actually)  Alan Moore pennned Miracleman stories that never made it into the Eclipse series.

the John Totleben(?) issues are beautiful, artwise!

John Totleben(?) art aside Miracleman always stood out as one of those AMAZING stories that could have and should have been drawn by more skilled artists.  Other books with that same problem that immediately comes to mind are Animal Man and Rising Stars.  Imagine the Miracleman series with art by Alex Ross(WOW and I know he wasnt around then) or any other highly skilled artists.

With art by Alex Ross I'd gag. I want my comics to look like comics and while Alex Ross is good for covers, maybe, his art is hideous when it comes to panels. I know I'm probably in the minority in this forum, but I'm not a fan of his style, or really that painted/illustration style at all. The closest I'd come to agreeing with you would be if say, Neal Adams of the 60's and 70's drew Miracleman. BTW, you can check my website at www.westportalbooks.com for some issues of MM I have available. Yes they are pricey, but they are dupes from my collection and have been kept in stellar condition. They are one owner issues, lovingly kept pristine! Sorry for the ad but someone mentioned they were searching for some issues. Oh yeah, I also have a pristine, extra #4 that isn't listed, yet. If anyone is interested, possibly for a trade??
