Marvel Comics has aquired the rights to Marvelman (Miracle Man)!



Thats right Marvel Comics will begin what looks like newly written tales of Marvel Man, and possibly reprint the classic tales as told by Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman.

From Wikipedia: Marvelman, known for trademark reasons as Miracleman in his American reprints and story continuation, is a fictional comic book superhero created in 1954 by writer-artist Mick Anglo for publisher L. Miller & Son. Originally intended as a United Kingdom home-grown substitute for the American character Captain Marvel, the series ran until 1963. He was revived in 1982 in a dark, post-modern deconstructionist series by writer Alan Moore, with later contributions by Neil Gaiman.

The first Alan Moore stories I ever read were the Miracleman stories in "Warrior" when a friend in the UK sent me a run of something like 17 issues of the magazine. This is good news indeed!
