Comics have seized center stage at the venerable British Library in London this summer in an exhibition celebrating the history of British comics and the work of British creators. Subtitled, 'Art and Anarchy in the UK', the Comics Unmasked exhibition places an emphasis on protest, outsider culture, and anti-authoritarian voices.

Curated by Adrian Edwards, Paul Gravett, and John Harris Dunning, Comics Unmasked draws heavily on the British Library's own collection to establish and define Britain's relationship to the comics art form -- stirring up nostalgia, scandal, and some surprising discoveries along the way. And Kieron Gillen's giant head.

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

Miracleman 1
Marvel

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]

MM top

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.

Marvel Announces ‘Marvelman Classic’ Reprints

marvelman-classic

Ending almost a year of speculation, Marvel have finally announced what they're doing with Marvelman: Reprinting his adventures in a new ongoing series. So why do the words "Marvelman Classic" worry us so much?

A press release this morning from the House of Ideas explains that July will see the launch of "Marvelman Family's Finest" #1, a new ongoing series that's described as "reprinting Marvelman's greatest adventures for the first time in the US" -- which, apparently, means it's not the Alan Moore or Neil Gaiman stories that everyone wants to read and have already been reprinted over here. That'll be accompanied by "Marvelman Classic Vol
