Alan Moore's revamp of the classic British hero Marvelman, who was kind of like Captain Marvel (a.k.a. Shazam). Miracleman is one of his celebrated works of pushing the comic book medium into a more mature level of writing, not just in content, but subject matter at structure. After 16 issue the series would be passed on to Neil Gaiman.
The series is long out of print because of its many legal issues.
When the series was in print there were four trades collecting the main series:
- Miracleman: A Dream of Flying (#1-3)
- Miracleman: The Red King Syndrome (#4-10)
- Miracleman: Olympus (#11-16)
- Miracleman: The Golden Age (#17-22)
Miracleman: Apocrypha, would be a side series.
