Quote Of The Week
"Despite the updated coloring, it probably isn't fair or even realistic to hold the series up against contemporary comics, despite Miracleman
's significant influence on a good deal of them. Instead, it's best to view these stories in the context of the times, which makes it easier to see why Miracleman
, if you prefer) is the natural stepping stone to Watchmen
, and established many of the themes Alan Moore and many creators that followed him would explore in subsequent works up through the present day." -- Corey Blake
