First new Miracleman stories in 20 years!
[…] But no one saw this news coming. Fans have known about the lost Morrison story for years, but no one was holding out much hope that it would ever surface. It was mired in controversy: A young Morrison wrote it in the mid-’80s with the blessing of Marvelman's publisher. But the deal fell apart, allegedly because of Moore. Here's what Morrison said of the incident in an interview a few years ago:
I didn’t want to do it without Moore’s permission, and I wrote to him and said, “They’ve asked me to do this, but obviously I really respect you work, and I wouldn’t want to mess anything up. But I don’t want anyone else to do it and mess it up.” And he sent me back this really weird letter, and I remember the opening of it, it said, “I don’t want this to sound like the softly hissed tones of a mafia hitman, but back off.”
