Wednesday is new comic book day for sure but today is something even more special because the long awaited Marvel Comics acquisition of the legendary character Marvelman (who is also known as Miracleman to many readers) sees print as a brand new title and the first issue is released today. Take a look at this awesome cover.
This is the Wizardworld Variant edition below but equally cool and something you will want to add to your collection when you find one. More about the title below this cover.
From the Official Press Copy: 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 eighties adventures that captured lightning in a bottle — or experience them for the first time — in these digitally restored, fully relettered editions! • Issue 1 includes material originally presented in WARRIOR #1 and MIRACLEMAN #1, plus the MARVELMAN PRIMER. Issue #2 includes material originally presented in WARRIOR #1-5, plus bonus material
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I will admit that I never did read an issue of the title when Eclipse Comics published it as Miracleman back in 1985 and that was because most of my comic book money had been ear-marked for the offerings from both DC Comics and Marvel Comics with the occasional dalliance into Dark Horse Comics territory but a lot of friends were following it and told me that I was missing out. Its like listening to one band and not another one in some sense. That said I am rather excited to see what this is all about and hope to get my hands on some trade paperbacks to learn the back story of this incredibly powerful figure in comic book history. Will you be reading this title?
