If you were curious, here’s a side by side comparison of the original B&W WARRIOR # 1, Miracleman # 1 from Eclipse (from the floppy, not the trade), Miracleman # 1 from Comics Forum (Spanish Edition which has the same coloring as the Eclipse trade) and the upcoming Miracleman # 1 from Marvel.
Bleeding Cool has provided the world with the first look at the new coloring job (and the new lettering, I believe) for the Miracleman reissues. While I’m personally not sure exactly how I feel about it, I must admit it did bring a smile to my face. More pages are available for preview on the Bleeding Cool site.
Jim Cheung posted on his tumblr an image of a Miracleman work in progress. Word is that this will be for a cover of one of the upcoming reprint issues, although which issue remains to be seen.
The February solicitations are out, and here’s what Marvel has to say about Miracleman # 3. Looks like we’re getting some Warpsmiths!

If you’ve got around $5k burning a hole in your pocket, you can head on over to ebay and place a bid on Paul Gulacy’s original art for the cover of Miracleman Family # 2.

As I’m sure some of you recall (and if you don’t, just keep scrolling down) that Pádraig Ó Méalóid recently posted a truncated, serialized version of his book about the history of Marvelman/Miracleman, “Poison Chalice”. Pádraig, with Alan’s permission, is now posting in full his October 2010 interview with Alan Moore for the book, which obviously centers on Marvelman/Miracleman. Part 1 is available to read now (I believe there will be 3 parts in total). Go check it out.
