Weird Comics History, ep 28 - Exploring the Mysteries of Marvelman... Miracleman, Part Two
There comes a time when everybody has to leave home... and that's no different for our new friend Marvelman, who, during this episode makes the trek across the Atlantic, and starts getting published stateside by Eclipse Comics. Not before a little tweak in his title though.
For their middle installment of Exploring the Mysteries of MarveREDACTED... let's try that again. Exploring the Mysteries of MarREDACTED. Hmm... okay, we'll do it their way... For this installment of Exploring the Mysteries of Miracleman, Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) discuss more growing pains than a house full of Seavers when they continue their long-form look at our Kimota-shouting hero. This week they will set the stage for the domestic (if you live in the United States) arrival (and sorta-kinda revival) of Miracleman... and briefly discuss the remaining Alan Moore run as well as the still unfinished Neil Gaiman run.
Then... they start getting into the nitty-gritty, and really the "meat and potatoes" of any real Miracleman discussion... the rights! Welcome to the story, Mr. McFarlane... hope you survive the experience!
Next week we will do our best to "tie a bow" on Miracleman, his story, and the creative forces all vying for ownership!
