As you can tell by the title of this post, Marvel purchased the rights to Marvelman, better known as Miracleman in North America. For newer readers, Marvelman is one of the most celebrated comics in history, boasting critically acclaimed runs from both Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman, and, as hard as it may be to believe by some people, this literally is the biggest comic book related news you will likely ever hear.
What does this mean? For starters, Marvel can now begin reprinting the out of print and impossible to find series for a whole new generation of readers. On top of this, they now have the ability to start printing new stories of the character. Will they use the unpublished Neil Gaiman scripts to finish off his run, which had been cut off due to the bankruptcy? Will Neil Gaiman be returning to Marvel to finish up the run himself? Will we see digitally restored copies of the original trades, similar to how Absolute Sandman touched up the original Sandman issues? I don't know, but damn, even as someone who's already read all of the Marvelman stories, is this not the best news I've ever heard in the my 15+ years of comic book reading.
