Media Release — Following the herald of his return in TIMELESS #1 and the announcement of an all-new omnibus, Marvel Comics continues to mark the 40th anniversary of Miracleman’s modern era with a new printing of award-winning writer Neil Gaiman and artist Mark Buckingham’s redefining work on the character.

Arriving in October, MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN & BUCKINGHAM BOOK 1: THE GOLDEN AGE TPB will collect the first six issues of MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN AND BUCKINGHAM. Gaiman and Buckingham’s take on MIRACLEMAN laid the groundwork for a fascinating future for the legendary super hero—a future that will now come to pass! Available for the first time in paperback, the MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN & BUCKINGHAM BOOK 1: THE GOLDEN AGE TPB will give fans a chance to revisit this beloved era of Miracleman ahead of the exciting plans Marvel has in store for the iconic character later this year.

Atop Olympus, Miracleman presides over a brave new world forged from London’s destruction. It is a world free of war, of famine, of poverty. A world of countless wonders. A world where pilgrims scale Olympus’ peak to petition their living god, while miles below the dead return in fantastic android bodies. It is an Age of Miracles — but is humankind ready for it? Do we even want it? Is there a place for humanity in a world of gods? Gaiman and Buckingham delve into the lives of lonely idealists, rebellious schoolchildren and fracturing families, exploring the human constant in a changing world of gods and miracles.

Check out the cover above and stay tuned for more exciting announcements about MIRACLEMAN in the coming months! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Wasn’t the publication date on Miracleman #1 August 1985? Of course, the first Gaiman written issues were much later (June 1990). The first issue of Warrior Magazine was indeed March 1982, but that first Alan Moore written story used the moniker “Marvelman” which led to a very contentious lawsuit that required Eclipse Comics to create the tile, “Miracleman” for their American published “Miracleman” series —and that was a reboot of the character created by Mick Anglo (as Marvelman) back in February 1954, and going on hiatus in 1962.
