Here's a link to a statement by Neil Gaiman's attorney.
It sounds favorable for some reprints. I just want to see where Gaiman was going with this series. I hope this doesn't take a turn for the worse as the other bright spots.
I guess , God willing , we'll soon see.

I've yet to read any of it. I bought issue one at Wizard World, then chose to leave it until such time when I'd be able to read the entire saga. The sooner this stuff gets reprinted, the better.
You could always grab a used copy of some of the trades off Amazon.com or bid on this set of books at eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1573374022#DESC). Or individual issues and trades (http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?MfcISAPICommand=GetResult&query=miracleman&from=R7&ebaytag1=ebayreg&ht=1&category0=267&combine=y&st=2&SortProperty=MetaEndSort&tc=allcategory).
Damn. I had a link to the Miracleman book page at Amazon, but the damn site doesn't like remote linking.

I could indeed...if I had a few hundred dollars to blow on comics.
However, I don't havea few hundred dollars to blow on anything.
Lucky for me I own books 1, 4 and Apocrypha. I still don't know what happens in the middle though! Argh!

I read part of it when I was younger and it always stuck with me. I wanted to read the whole thing, so I took the plunge. I bought an entire set off of ebay. That was when they weren't quite as expensive as they are now, though still expensive.
It was worth it as a story. I have a conflicting view of the whole thing. I love it and hate it at the sametime, if that makes any sense. I won't give any spoilers because I know a lot of you haven't read it.
Overall , in my opinion, it's Alan Moore's greatest work. And that's coming from a guy who loves almost all of Moore's old work.
Imo, it blew Watchmen out of the water, and I really loved that series.
I am very interested in where Gaiman will take this thing. I think that if he's going in the direction I think he is, then it will help me with the "hate" part of my love hate relationship of the book:)
On a closing note however, I think that a lot of people may have the same feeling I have for the series. I think that's what Alan Moore had planned in some way. That it would stir up a bit of contraversy.
