Neil Gaiman to Continue Miracleman Series

miraclemanThis bit of news almost passed me by. During NYCC, Marvel announced they would be reprinting previous issues of Miracleman comics (known as Marvelman in the UK) next year, but that’s not all. Neil Gaiman and artist Mark Buckingham will return to the series and continue its run with ten more issues to complete the story.

Gaiman and Buckingham had collaborated on eight issues, 17-24, until the publisher Eclipse folded and their work was cut short. But Marvel acquired the rights to the character back in 2009, and now they are finally reviving the series to let Gaiman finish out his story. Reprints begin in January 2014, including Alan Moore’s work on the series, and then Gaiman will continue the story with new issues.

Looking forward to seeing these unavailable titles return to print? Can’t wait to see how the story finally ends? Sound off in the comments!
