What is it? Alan Moore’s (referred to in this collection as “The Original Writer”) Miracleman
What is it about? On an assignment covering a terrorist attack, reporter Michael Moran suddenly discovers he possesses superhuman abilities and a rush of horrifying memories come flooding back to him. Now he must try to understand why he was giving these abilities while trying to stop the evil scientists who created him.
Why you should read it? Before he wrote the graphic novel masterpieces Watchmen, The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, and V for Vendetta, Alan Moore was given an assignment to revamp Marvel Man, a Shazam-like character published in Great Britain during the 1950s. In what became a standard of Moore’s writing, he used the character as a psychological study of the superhero genre and offers a dark view of the terror that an all-powerful being is capable of.
Is the series complete? After several years of legal battles between some of the biggest names in the industry, Marvel Comics is finally re-releasing the 1980s series in a new graphic novel format.
Need more convincing? This series features some of Alan Moore’s most groundbreaking work. Not only that, but later volumes will collect issues published after Moore’s departure, when another influential British writer took over – Neil Gaiman (who, incidentally, fought for the rights so he can write a new issue once all of the reprints have been published)!
Tech Review: As e-book subscription services grow their catalogs, the age-old institution trumps all.
We can’t stress this enough: we have thousands of free ebooks and eaudiobooks. This article is very honest about some of the drawbacks (e.g. there are still heavy holds on bestsellers, initially setting a device up can be tricky) but we are here to help with all that too.
The library will be closed all day tomorrow, August 15th. We will reopen at 9 am on Saturday. We apologize for any inconvenience.
