Miracleman

    (Eclipse, 1985-1993)
©Alan Moore/Garry Leach/Alan Davis/Dez Skinn

Comic book super-heroes usually do what they do because they think it makes the world a better place. In their darker moments, however, they come to realize the truth: they’re simply defending the status quo. They can stop a criminal, but can they stop crime? They might save a person from dying in a plane crash, but can they stop death itself?

Miracleman (known as Marvelman in the UK) is a hero of a different sort. He really can change the world. He’s brought about an age of miracles, put an end to poverty and war. It almost sounds like a dream…

Continuing from a storyline started in the British comic magazine Warrior, Miracleman was written variously by Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman (in his pre-Sandman) days. It exhibits the sort of creativity that marks these two writers as among the best in the field.
