Marvelman or Miracleman

by Marcello Vaccari 

My thanks to Marcello for his kind permission to lift his work and present it in English. Please visit his site: http://www.comune.modena.it/glamazonia/ for the full original text of his article in the original Italian. He has lots of other interesting web pages as well!

For the most part, I have edited out the general history of the character that can be found elsewhere on this web site in English and left that of Marvelman's Italian incarnation. - Matthew H. Gore

In 1965/66, the publisher Edit Europe produced 8 issues, of which 4 were of large format (33,5X24) and the other 4 smaller (29,5X22) . This series introduced Marvelman , one of the rare superheroes to have come out of Britain.
