Original ‘Miracleman’ Artist Garry Leach On The Series’ Return: ‘I Figured Someone Had To Get Lucky At Some Point’ [Interview]

With Marvel’s publication of Miracleman #1, thirty years of hearsay, hopes, rumors, big announcements, broken relationships, erroneous claims, false starts, and mountains of litigation were finally resolved with a conclusion that once seemed, for all intents and purposes, totally impossible. Now, through the magic of lawyers, digital coloring, and the unlikely cooperation of all parties involved, the derailed train is back on track, and a new generation of readers finally have the opportunity to discover just why Miracleman is so revered.

In celebration of this momentous occasion, original series artist Garry Leach, whose languid concoction of dynamism and sharp-lined realism defined the look of the revisionist superhero, generously took the time to answer a few questions about his legendary work. In addition, Marvel has provided ComicsAlliance with an exclusive preview of Miracleman #2, including a page from "The Yesterday Gambit," presented in color for the very first time.

Is A Recolored Comic Still The Same Comic?

Miracleman

 

This week, Marvel posted a few preview pages from its newly "remastered" first issue of Miracleman. Before the images were even officially released Wednesday, fans had gotten a hold of the new images and posted comparisons to the original black-and-white versions from the magazine Warrior, Eclipse Comics' original issues, and recolored versions from the original Eclipse collected edition.

It seems like any time the major publishers issue a high-profile reprint of a comic that's more than 25 years old, they consider it a necessity to recolor them. Maybe it is. Maybe old-fashioned colors are a turn-off to readers who are used to modern techniques. But I do wonder how much changing the colors changes the actual comic.

Confirmed: Alan Moore’s Work To Be Included In Marvel’s ‘Miracleman’ Reprints

Miracleman 1

Though the response from readers was overwhelmingly positive, last weekend's announcement that Marvel will republish Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham's scarcely available work on Miracleman, as well as allow the writer and artist to finally finish their long-incomplete story, led very naturally to one question: what about the Miracleman work of Alan Moore, which is similarly unavailable?

Fortunately, a press release sent out today by Marvel states quite clearly that the publisher will reprint the entire long lost Miracleman run of the 1980s, starting with the work of Moore. The confusion as to whether or not the Moore material would be included stems from the fact that Marvel has not mentioned the writer's name in any press.

Marvel To Publish Neil Gaiman And Mark Buckingham’s ‘MiracleMan,’ Including The Never-Seen Ending [NYCC 2013]

At a 'Cup O' Joe' panel at San Diego Comic Con in 2009, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada announced that the publisher had acquired the rights to Marvelman, the character created by Mick Anglo in 1954. A few months later, it was revealed that Marvel would be publishing "Marvelman Classic" reprints, though that would not include the iconic -- and due to their scarce availability, almost mythical -- runs on the character, also known as MiracleMan, from writers Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman. But today, four years after that initial announcement and at another Cup O' Joe panel, Quesada, along with a video message from Gaiman, revealed plans to reprint the Gaiman run with artist Mark Buckingham. Further, it was announced that Gaiman and Buckingham will finally be able to complete their previously unfinished story.
