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