Comic SpectrumI’m happy to see that someone has been able to finally clear up the legal mess that was the publishing of Mircaleman. Although Marvel announced that they had acquired the rights to this long time character a couple years back, they’ve just started to reprint the material everyone’s been clamoring for. The Miracleman stories originally written by Alan Moore are finally seeing print again (albeit without Moore’s name officially attached, he is billed here simply as “the Original Writer”) and this, just like many other fans, is my first introduction to the character. Only two issues in and I can already see why this series is held in such high regard. (...) Gary Leach’s art seems as dark as the story, with his pronounced and heavy line. Much like this character, I’m unfamiliar with Gary’s work and that’s unfortunate, as his art is a joy to look at. His panel layouts tell the story effectively, and he pushes the violence to a point where it actually seems real and scary. Not only that, but the modern restoration of coloring on this book serves his art well. I don’t have the original books to compare, but the colors here still have a dated feel, while being clean and modern. Within this issue is also a story with art by Alan Davis and Paul Neary, a behind the scenes look into Gary Leach’s artwork, and two 1950’s tales of Marvelman that dives into the character’s rich, yet a bit corny history. I think I’d be happier with just a reprint of the Alan Moore stories for a cheaper price, but Marvel is doing a service to the character by giving us so much more.
