Marvel’s Miracleman Concept Pages Unearthed

From the Crivens! Comics & Stuff blog:

“As we all know, MARVEL COMICS own the rights to MARVELMAN (sometimes known as MIRACLEMAN). Several years back, when Marvel were considering acquiring the copyright and negotiations were underway, I was asked to letter some sample pages to be presented to Marvel as part of the process. I had to sign a confidentiality clause, in effect until the matter was decided one way or the other. Well, we all know the result, so here at last are those particular pages for your palpitating perusal.”

Thanks to the anonymous men/women behind these pages, and their unearthing, for sharing! Head on over to the Crivens! Comics & Stuff blog to check out the pages.

 

Miracleman Annual # 1 Coming December 2014

According to Comic Book Resources, Marvel will be releasing the first new Miracleman stories in ~20 years in December. The big draw here is that the mythical, long lost Grant Morrison script will finally see the light of day, as drawn by Joe Quesada. Definitely add this one to the pull list.

The Red King Syndrome In October 2014

For those waiting for the Hardcovers (like me), Book 2: The Red King Syndrome will be arriving in October.
