    At the time I originally read them, Miracleman was a series that took me to someplace new and fascinating that I wasn't getting from other comics. Works were changing, maturing, and becoming something more because of stories like this. With it having been years since those first experiences, i've enjoyed picking up the hardcover collections that have come out. With this series though, I wanted to be able to take it in through the single installments, to revisit in smaller form rather than marathoning through it again, while also enjoying the way the recoloring job comes across on the digital platform. Miracleman is a fascinating work across the board but it's the Golden Age works and beyond that really made me a huge fan of it. The results here are impressive with what's been done and I cannot recommend it enough. Read Full Review

    The series shows that Gaiman knew how to capture magic on the page practically from the start. Best of all, this series (I believe) will finally print the never-published stories Gaiman wrote some 25 years ago. Read Full Review

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault Oct 19, 2015

    Miracleman #1 is a brief, fluttering glimpse. Gaiman shows just enough to prove that he understands the character and themes hes inherited, but not so much as to hint at what he might do with that inheritance. Theres potential in his story, but its for the most part as of yet unfulfilled. It doesnt stand up to any individual issue of Moores run, but it does provide promise enough to keep reading and see where Gaiman takes things from here. Read Full Review

    Pretty amazing stuff, it's a real treat to have this back in print. What I don't get is the $4.99 price tag. The "bonus content" is just some extra pages with the interiors presented in black and white plus the script. This may excite some but I think I'd rather pay regular price for just the story, I simply don't see why I should pay $4.99 for 30 year old reprints, where is that money going? Might be better off buying it in trade.
