Mark Buckingham was among the many guests at this weekend's Thought Bubble comic book art festival in Leeds. I have plenty of stories picked up here and there and will be rolling them out over the week.
But Miracleman fans have waited long enough.
Mark Buckingham, of Fairest and Fables, was the final artist on the Miracleman series, drawing the issues written by Neil Gaiman, The Golden Age which ran from issue 17 to 22 and The Silver Age which stopped with issue 24.
Buckingham talked about keeping The Golden Age much as it was when published, scanning in original art where available with D'Israeli recolouring the comics. But The Silver Age issues, Buckingham feels were very inconsistent, and has chosen to reink the two published issues and then continue with the rest of the series in that style, making for a more consistent read from issue to issue.
Not long now though, Mark. Marvel are up to issue 13 already…
