Highlights This Week: One of the most influential comics series you’ve never been able to read is finally getting reprinted this week. After years of negotiation and much legalese, Marvel has remastered the long-out-of-print Miracleman #1. Originally created in 1954, and known as Marvelman as a sort of British answer to Fawcett’s Captain Marvel, this revamp series was written by Alan Moore beginning in 1982 (and then by Neil Gaiman in later issues). Moore’s version redefined the character and went darker and edgier, taking its place beside The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen. The title then disappeared when its publisher, Eclipse, went belly up and left Gaiman’s run unfinished. Now, Miracleman looks better than ever, Gaiman’s run will finally see its completion, and more new Miracleman stories will eventually be released;
