    This closure is a kind of Biblical analogy to the arrival of a new messiah and the destruction of a system, only in this case they are two gods who will fight each other, although this comic does not show this expected confrontation, the next chapter will be devastating.

    Each page is a masterpiece, it is impressive how delicate and perfect each of the strokes is, where they play with textures, the details of the hair, the changes of environments, it is a hypnotizing comic. The expressions of the characters contribute a lot to the dramatic context.

    Major Spoilers

    I’ve had a long time to wonder what The Silver Age might end up being, but Miracleman: The Silver Age #7 surprises me on a number of levels, from Miracleman’s option to Dickie’s decision to the voice that crops up in the final two panels. This issue ends with a blurb for the next chapter, The Dark Age, and I’ll be interested to see if readers in 2024 actually wake up and realize that his comic is still being printed, because it’s actually worth the thirty-year wait.

    Miracleman: The Silver Age #7 concludes this miniseries focusing on Dickie Dauntless, once Young Miracleman, in a way that feels obvious in retrospect. Miracleman has built a paradise on Earth and set himself up as its god, but every Eden needs its snake, and every god needs its Satan. That the ending seems obvious only in retrospect, with Dickie’s tale remaining enthralling throughout, speaks to Gaiman and Buckingham’s storytelling abilities. The use of many two-page spreads to speak to the gravitas of Miracleman’s status on Earth, his face turning away slowly, page by page, as he explains to Dickie the options that lay before him, and the subtle shifts in power balance depicted in panel compositions are the kind of thoughtful touches that elevate the tale beyond simple post-Authority era superhero deconstruction (setting aside that this is a story conceived years before The Authority). The issue’s end tees up the final chapter of Gaiman and Buckingham’s Miracleman saga, and will leave readers guessing and eager to see the story’s finale.
