Miracleman Returns! The Full Details and New Images!

It was the series that changed comics forever. With the utterance of one word, Michael Moran transformed from the ordinary into the extraordinary – and Miracleman was born!

Long out of print, Marvel Comics announced at New York Comic Con that the earth-shattering stories that injected new levels of sophistication into the super hero genre will finally see the light of day once again! Starting this January, Marvel will begin publishing the legendary run of Miracleman by the original creators that began in Warrior Magazine and continued under now defunct publisher Eclipse Comics!

Marvel has been working with the original artists to obtain the original artwork or photostats in every chance possible. They then painstakingly restored the items to as high a standard possible, even developing new techniques to do so, just for this project. On top of that, each issue will be relettered to meet today’s standards.

On top of the re-prints, Marvel will publish all-new Miracleman stories from legendary creators Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham! Long left unfinished, Gaiman and Buckingham’s famous storyline will ultimately see the light of day!

Each issue of Miracleman features additional content including new art, interviews with the creators as well as new covers from some of the industry’s most legendary artists! Look for Miracleman #1 in print and digital this January!


NYCC 2013: Jim Steranko Marvel Artist’s Editions Are On Their Way!

Legendary comics artist Jim Steranko will be the subject of not one but two Artist’s Editions from IDW Publishing, with nearly all pages shot from the artist’s personal art collection. Steranko, one of the great innovators in comics history, produced a comparatively small body of work for the House of Ideas from the mid-1960s to the early ’70s, most notably his runs on Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Captain America.

The first volume, Steranko Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Artist’s Edition, will feature the initial twelve stories by Steranko that appeared in Strange Tales #151 through #162. All of these stories were drawn in the “twice up” format, meaning the original art is rendered at twice the size of the printed comic. The final book will measure 15 x 22 inches and is currently scheduled for release in May of 2014.

The second volume, Steranko Nick Fury and Captain America Artist’s Edition, will collect the remaining Nick Fury stories from Strange Tales 163-168, as well as issues 1, 3, and 5 of the Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic series. As icing on the cake, Sterankos three stellar issues of Captain America will also be included. This volume will measure 12 x 17 inches, and the release date is still to be determined.


While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for instance, corrections and blue pencils. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
