Gaiman, Buckingham Return To Their Unfinished Miracleman Story in 2022

Marvel announces Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham’s Miracleman series will return with Miracleman: The Silver Age Saga, which releases in October.

Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham will complete their previously unfinished “The Silver Age” Miracleman storyline for Marvel Comics.

Marvel announced that Miracleman By Gaiman & Buckingham: The Silver Age will release this coming October. Complete with remastered editions of the first two published issues, Miracleman By Gaiman & Buckingham: The Silver Age will complete “The Silver Age” with new artwork and extra bonus material. “We’re back!” Buckingham said of the announcement. “Neil and I have had these stories in our heads since 1989 so it is amazing to finally be on the verge of sharing them with our readers.

I have pushed myself to my limit to craft something special for these issues. Cinematic in approach, clean and elegant, drawing on the best of my own style but also paying homage to the exceptional talents of all who came before us, whose unique visions have shaped this ground-breaking series over forty years, and the 1950’s Marvelman foundations on which it was built.”

The synopsis for Miracleman By Gaiman & Buckingham: The Silver Age reads, “Young Miracleman — the lost member of the Miracleman Family — is back! His last memories were of a 1963 world of joy and innocence. Now, he’s been thrust into the 21st century, where his best friends have become gods and monsters. Where can a hero from a simpler time call home in this brave new world?”

Initially created in 1954 by Mick Anglo as a UK version of DC’s Captain Marvel/Shazam, Miracleman’s — also known as Marvelman — initial series ran until 1963. The character was later revived by Alan Moore in 1982, which gave Miracleman a darker spin, before Gaiman and Buckingham took over in 1990.

The three initially planned to create three volumes — “The Golden Age,” “The Silver Age” and “The Bronze Age” — but legal issues surrounding the project halted things shortly after Miracleman #24. Marvel acquired the rights to the character in 2014 and began teasing Miracleman’s introduction into its universe after 2021’s Timeless limited series.

Along with the competition of “The Silver Age,” Gaiman and Buckingham will also team up with Jason Aaron, Mike Carey, Ty Templeton, Ryan Stegman and more for a new Miracleman one-shot, Miracleman #0, releasing in October. The issue will serve as a prelude to the character’s new chapter in the Marvel Universe. Additionally, Marvel will release Miracleman By Gaiman & Buckingham Book 1: The Golden Age TPB, which collects Gaiman and Buckingham’s complete “Golden Age” saga, in the same month.
