Issue Notes

Reprints Miracleman (Elipse, 1985 series) #1-3 (minus the Book One Chapter 1: 1956 story from #1), which was itself a reprint of the British black and white magazine Warrior (Quality Communications, 1982 Series) #1-3, 5-11.

The "Marvelman" name is changed to Miracleman due to legal complications with Marvel Comics.

In the back of some Eclipse comics this book is listed as Eclipse Graphic Album Series #29, but it is not listed that way in the book itself.
