This book compiles every issue of Gaiman's run that I know of, but the story just ends. I guess Gaiman never wanted to finish his Miracleman run, so he left it ambiguous as to the fate of all the characters.

Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). This book compiles every issue of Gaiman's run that I know of, but the story just ends. There is so much character depth in Gaiman's arcs that you'll be pleasantly surprised by all the characters he brings back and gives a new perspective to herein. I think it's all rather clever on how Gaiman seems to be implying the imperfection of Miracleman's flawed utopia.

Miracleman Book Four : The Golden Age is a collection of several stand alone stories from the Eclipse comic Miracleman. After Miracleman solved most of the world's problems at the end of book three, one would think that there would be little left in this series. Fortunately Neil Gaiman is more than up to the task of continuing the story from where legendary comic author Alan Moore left off. Gaiman explores the strange landscape of the Utopia Miracleman has created in stories about the basic human condition in a fantastic science fiction future. This is a superb collection complemented by Mark Buckingham's phenominal artwork. Highly Recommended!

Marvel Comics has published the first volume in its Miracleman collection in May of 2014. Eventually they are going to reprint this book as well as the conclusion to the series by writer Neil Gaiman. Don't splurge on the expensive trade paperbacks on the back issue market. Marvel's new hardcovers are well produced with better paper and at a lower price!

Update 1/5/2015: Marvel has released the second volume and the third volume is available to pre-order on Amazon.

While published in tandem with Gaiman's award-winning Sandman series, his run on Miracleman was truly something special. It's also ridiculously difficult to find at this point, due to legal snafus. Nevertheless, it'll be worth the hassle.
Why? Consider this: what do you do when Alan Moore has pretty much wrecked the world as we know it? Make up a new one. And fortunately, as we've also seen in bestsellers like Neverwhere and Stardust, this is one thing Gaiman can do. From people admiring drug-users because they represent the last known frontier, to the permanence of death, and even the inevitability of evil, Gaiman hits on mythical concepts in a thoroughly plausible and enjoyable way.
How would superheroes REALLY affect our world? Read this volume and see. I guarantee you won't see any of it coming.

Coming after Alan Moore's run on Miracleman, how could anything coming after hope to live up? Well, the sad answer is that it doesn't. In comparison to the three preceding volumes it comes as a bit of an anti-climax. That having been said, I must acknowledge that The Golden Age should still be read by any Miracleman fan. There are a few things that you should know about before getting into it. First, the Big Blue Banana himself appears in the book hardly at all. Having created Uptopia on Earth, there is little for him to do now except rule over it. Occasionally pilgrims make the four-day climb up Olympus to "pray" - i.e., beg Miracleman for a favor. That's all we really see of him. The rest of the book is taken up with what life would be like in the new Miracleman universe. Of course, we also get to see what "life" is like for the reincarnated souls in Olympus - especially all those Andy Wharhols.

As Neil Gaiman takes over the writing duties from Alan Moore, the story leaps ahead in time. Miracleman's totalitarian utopia, if you will, is well established.

He does end up entering into a dialogue with his former girlfriend about the politics of utopia, and whether this is good for humans in the long run.

He and his colleagues have become far removed from the normal people.

Marvel Comics now owns the rights to this character as of 2009 so expect to see an omnibus edition containing the entire series. If you can wait a year or so you'll save a small fortune over the individual issues and graphic novel collections. Who knows we may even see new material from Gaiman and/or Moore.
