Format: Paperback
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.

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!

I have done this too much lately. I must really stop recommending things to people but I just can't help it! Okay, then, Miracleman. Where do I begin? It's... erm. Its... Okay. Imagine Superman. Only he can do ANYTHING. And imagine him making the world an infinitly better place. Only it's his vision of a better place. And this man turned into god has strange ideas. But beneficial ideas. And yet imagine this brave new world to be actually quite unnerving. Set in the 1980's Miracleman throws into the mix: The worldwide mourning of a London destroyed and a population dismembered by a super villain. The birth of a new race of people, with incredible powers and all deciding to hover around the age of six for a long time. A man's affair with a goddess. A long trek up a modern day tower of babel to ask a god for a miracle. A dozen Warholls going into mass production of t-shirts, only supervised by a god. In a giant pyramid. On top of part of the ruins of London.
As the other reviewer said, the tension is unbearable.
Miracleman is set almost entirely in modern day England and it is this that makes the book so frightening. Things are good, yes, but almosy mind bogglingly awesome. Miracles and normal people trying to live normal lives in a world no one understands anymore. Character is the focus of this book, not action, and the characters are so real that...
Oh! Just buy it!
P.S: Amazon! Get this back in print! Now!

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.

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.
