Comic Book Storytelling: Miracleman #9

I have never read Miracleman before the current Marvel Comics reprints. I will be here to give you my impression of them as a first time reader as they continue to be released.


I may not have read any Miracleman before these reprints from Marvel but even I knew about this issue.  In fact I think every comic fan has at least heard of this now infamous installment of the Miracleman series.  This is the childbirth issue and it is indeed very graphic.

It opens with Liz Moran still at Dr. Gargunza’s compound.  She is awoken by her contractions and the voice of her baby.  The last of Gargunza’s Nazi henchmen flee the scene.  I am still confused about how Gargunza ended up hooking up with them after the war.  Anyway Miracleman returns from killing Gargunza and then puts Liz in a car and flies her to someplace safe where the baby can be born.

The birth sequence is all about the power and beauty and messiness of birth and life.  Once again Miracleman has some musings about how Gargunza wasted his life pursing his petty goal of immortality.  But Mike and Liz are so overjoyed by the birth of their child that all the pain and horror they have been through is worth it.  Then their baby that is only a few minutes old says ‘ma-ma’ and they both look a little freaked out.

Also there is an interlude where two alien beings disguised as humans pay a visit to Jonny Bates to see if Kid Miracleman is still a threat.  They kind of half ass their job and fail to notice that Kid Miracleman is indeed still active inside Bates mind.


I have to be honest for all the fuss and controversy I have heard talked about surrounding this issue it does not seem that big a deal to me.  I mean artistically it is all arranged very well but any people who were offended by this probably had some insecurity issues to deal with.  So we have reached one of the few milestones of this series I have heard of.  I know of at least two more but I am not sure how far down the line before we get to them.

    I comment when I especially enjoy a post on a website or if I have something to contribute to
    the conversation. It’s caused by the fire displayed

    moved enough to post a comment 😉 I do have some questions for you if you
    tend not to mind. Could it be simply me or do some of the
