    This chapter raises the level of tension and mystery, as it is revealed that Miracleman’s utopia is actually another facade to favor an elite.

    Each page is a masterpiece, it is impressive how delicate and perfect each one of the strokes is, where they play with textures, the details of the hair, the changes of environments, it is a mesmerizing comic.

    Buckingham once again gives us beautiful art, including the most terrible things that the future has to offer, but the recurring dream effects have a bizarre coloring that makes them distracting, even as they start to answer the questions readers have been sitting on for 30 years.

    Even with those subjective weaknesses, Miracleman: The Silver Age #5 delivers more often than not, giving us some insight into how the hero known as Dickie Dauntless ended up in the clutches of Gargunza back in 1963 and successfully gives us the patented “man-out-of-his-own-time” story beats in a fresh way

    Gaiman, Buckingham, and Bellaire bring us an issue that continues the exploration of the world of Miracles and Dickie Dauntless. There will be parts of the mystery that make you wonder if the memories are real or manufactured. The journey that Dickie is on has eclipsed the story of Miracleman and has you rooting for him every step of the way.

    Miracleman: The Silver Age #4 continues Kid Miracleman’s journey through Miracleman’s utopia, searching for his place in it, and it’s fascinating to see what unnerves Dickie Dauntless, openly criticizing the fetishization of poverty and illness and nanobot-programmed artwork that functions similarly to AI artwork. Dickie, who fled from Miracleman after the issue of his sexuality arose, is not scornful but curious about technology allowing for gender-transitioning at a genetic level. This installment is more about nudging the plot forward than the previous couple and thus feels less revelatory. But that is, admittedly, a high bar, and one can still appreciate Mark Buckingham’s delicate linework and Jordie Bellaire’s humanizing colors. Neil Gaiman also creates a depth to Miracleman’s world lacking in many modern series, with almost casual, un-highlighted background arcs, from Jason Oakey’s continued maturation to the church of Miracleman being all but oblivious to visits from the gods they worship. This series continues to be a rich comic book text worthy of its legacy.
