The highly anticipated Miracleman: The Silver Age #3 returns this December after nearly 40 years since its debut. After a revolutionary run that made Miracleman one of the most coveted collectible comics of all-time, and a subsequent complicated history regarding Miracleman’s IP history, Marvel comics is finally able to see the return of the hero along with original run’s creators, Gaiman and Buckingham, where a young Miracle Man returns to tackle on a brave new world.
“This script was written 30 years ago and has never been seen until now. It feels so liberating to be able to bring people new Miracleman for the first time in three decades,” Gaiman said in a Marvel press release.
“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.”
The remastered Miracleman by Gaiman and Buckingham: The Silver Age #1-2 will serve as a reintroduction leading into the new chapter of #3. Where the Golden Age hero tackles the complexities of today.
As a first look, fans are treated to see an opening atop the Himalayas where Dickie Dauntless, aka Young Miracleman, is on a desperate search to find his place in the Age of Miracles. All for a harrowing tale where he’ll have to confront his past with Johnny Bates.
“I have pushed myself to my limit to craft something special for these issues,” Buckingham 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.”
The original run of Miracleman ended in 1990s after Eclipse Comics, ended. The original plan was for a Miracleman saga of multiple ages but only The Golden Age was finished. This comic will pick-up where the Silver Age left off.
