This seems a somewhat contentious way to put across your point unless of course your main aim was to elicit an angry response. The irony is that another admin had now spotted what looks to be another account connected to you which, if correct, is against forum rules. Doubtless a credible explanation will soon be forthcoming...

To the best of my knowledge, Moore will not profit from any adaptations that he considers to have lost the spirit of his original work but usually makes sure that co-creators don't lose out. While his principles and general outlook may be out of kilter with the modern world, and are certainly at odds with the often heartless film-making world, he seems to have more integrity than the likes of McFarlane. And, equally important when considering the medium whereof we speak, has demontsrated considerably greater creative prowess.

Re: Marvel Comics buys the rights to Miracleman/Marvelman

The one-two punch of the return of Miracleman and the return of the Priest/Bright team on Quantum & Woody (hell -- any new comics by Priest) has made me so happy!

Re: Marvel Comics buys the rights to Miracleman/Marvelman

I can finally read Gaiman's run for a decent price. Back in the day, I stopped collecting Miracleman after Moore left. What did I know back then?

Re: Marvel Comics buys the rights to Miracleman/Marvelman

Yessss, I've always wondered what Gaiman was going to do after his run was cut short. I would love it if Marvel let him write some new material, too.

The plan is to reprint the existing Moore and Gaiman material in #1-24, the completed but unpublished #25, and then Gaiman and Buckingham will finish out their planned storyline with new material. Should end with issue #34.

Re: Marvel Comics buys the rights to Miracleman/Marvelman

I generally don't buy single issues. Can I safely wait for the trades on these? What I mean is, will these be collected in trades or is that not in the agreement that Marvel has with the original publishers? I've never read these but hear they are amazing.

Nothing is certain, but I would be extremely surprised if we don't see these in single issue first, hardcovers every 6 issues or so, TPBs 6-12 months thereafter, and eventually one or two omnibuses.

That is probably likely coming from Marvel. I was hoping someone other than Marvel got the Miracleman rights. It's less about reprints and more about the future exploitation of the character.

Wonder what they're reprinting from Warrior (besides the actual MarvelMan stories)? Wasn't there a couple of tidbits that never made it to the US?

Yeah, I think there was one short story drawn by Steve Dillon that wasn't reprinted by Eclipse, but I don't think there's a lot of material like that out there. The Dillon story is about eight pages, and there was a framing sequence from Miarcleman 3-D.

I wonder how they'll handle issue 8. That's the fill-in issue of the Eclipse run only contained silver age reprints and no "Original Writer" material. Just reprint it as-is to keep up the numbering, or something else?

Oh... I almost forgot. There's one more thing. Grant Morrison wrote a story called "The Devil and Johnny Bates" that was never published (it was rumored to have been in one of Morrison's fanzines, but I think that turned out to be false). I would love to have this see print somewhere.

Re: Marvel Comics buys the rights to Miracleman/Marvelman

The Original Writer. I hope He Who Shall Not Be Named By Marvel is happy with that credit.

My guess is issue #1 will reprint the text piece from Warrior #1 and issue #2 will reprint the Marvelman stories from Warrior #1-5, which Eclipse previously reprinted in Miracleman #1 and the first part of Miracleman #2. In other words, it looks like Marvel is not doing one-for-one reprints of the Eclipse stuff (at least insofar as it consisted of Warrior reprints), but instead is breaking things differently to make longer issues (which suggests they'll skip Eclipse's #8).

Re: Marvel Comics buys the rights to Miracleman/Marvelman

I really need to look through my box of old comicbooks that have followed me around from various houses over the years!

Although I took most of my old Marvel anthology reprints to a charity shop a decade ago, among other bits and pieces I hung on both to my (nearly?) full run of Quality Communications Warrior anthology comics and the set of Eclipse Miracleman I picked up later.

I think I was given a copy of Miracleman Number 1 by Dez Skinn as a freebie after he gave a talk at one of the two or three British Science Fiction Association London meetings I attended way back when.

If Marvel do a good TPB version I may pick that up and pass over the Eclipse originals to a nephew, as I'm more of a reader than a collector/speculator - my copies are not encased in mylar

Re: Marvel Comics buys the rights to Miracleman/Marvelman

It took me a minute to figure out "original write & mick anglo." Typo of "original writer, Mick Anglo."

Either way, I'm happy it's finally coming out. Preferred the name Miracleman though.

I think they're using the name Miracleman for the Original Writer and Gaiman stuff, but they're also talking about introducing a version of the character into Marvel continuity under the Marvelman name.

Guess I have one more title I can add to my pull list at my LCBS.

If that's true that's good for me. I started reading about the character as MIRACLE Man. Sounds so much more fitting for the character and the series than Marvel Man.

I know it only makes sense to introduce the character into the MU proper but I wish they didn't...reminds me a little bit of BEFORE Watchmen. But I can just ignore it. They'll probably get some top tier creators to handle it anyways.

I will be so glad to finally read what Gaiman had planned for the Dark Age. I always assumed that Dicky Dauntless was gay from reading about the series in publications like Wizard and Kimota! but when I read the actual issue it came across more like Miraclewoman was manipulating Miracleman.

Then I remembered that in the Moore issues he portrays Dauntless as being a misogynist and repressed homosexual, keeping in line with the writer's style of everything-you-know-is-wrong. But Gaiman's portrayal of Dauntless doesn't seem to hate women, and actually seems like a genuinely good person. And didn't Kid Miracleman have more developed super powers, even showcasing mental powers in the 2nd issue? I'm really looking forward to seeing this story finished.

Re: Marvel Comics buys the rights to Miracleman/Marvelman

I think Miracleman sounds a lot better than Marvelman. The latter name doesn't roll off the tongue very easily.

EXCLUSIVE: Quesada Details "Miracleman's" Marvel-ous Return

Looks like we won't be seeing new material from Gaiman and Buckingham until 2016.

On the plus side, we can hope this gives them plenty of lead time to get started.

It'll still end up delayed. Just like Sandman Overture.

Just got the first issue. Very well put together. It has the first two stories from Warrior, plus prelim art, interviews, etc.

I'm definitely buying it next time I hit my LCBS. Haven't been since before Thanksgiving, I'm thinking I might hit triple digits $.
