Marvel finally announced that Neil Gaiman's Miraclenan will see the light of day starting this coming January as the series will be reprinted followed by all-new stories from Gaiman and Mark Buckingham.
The original artwork for Gaimain's Miracleman will be re-colored and re-lettered.
We've been working with the Miracleman artists to obtain original artwork or photostats in every instance possible, and then applying the same painstaking restoration methods and rigorous quality standards that are utilized on the Marvel Masterworks line. The Marvel Special Projects team have even been developing some new techniques specifically for this project. These Miracleman issues will receive the most advanced restoration possible to ensure the most authentic reading experience,” says SVP of Marvel Publishing David Gabriel. “The art is crisp, clear, and looks as good – if not better than the day it was published! Also, the stories are being completely relettered to meet today’s standards.
The tragedy of Miracleman was that we published two issues, wrote three and a half – and then it all stopped. And Miracleman #25 has been sitting in the darkness – nobody has seen it. It was drawn, it was written, it was lettered over 20 years ago. I love the idea that I will get to finish this story.
Miracleman #1 hits this January featuring all-new covers, artwork and interviews.
