Gaiman To Write MARVEL Mini
Neil Gaiman (Sandman, American Gods) has signed on to write a new project for MARVEL Comics, which is expected to be released sometime next year as a 6-issue miniseries. It’s unknown what exactly Gaiman has planned, but it will be set in the MARVEL Universe…
Additionally, MARVEL has agreed to donate all profits from the project to Gaiman’s MARVELS AND MIRACLES, LLC, which is trying to clarify legal rights to the MIRACLEMAN property Gaiman had a hand in.
“I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with Joe Quesada and MARVEL,” said Gaiman. “The MARVEL characters have been part of my life for over thirty years, and the opportunity to play in the sandbox that Stan (Lee) and Jack (Kirby) gave us back then is one I find exciting and faintly scary. I am also particularly pleased that MARVEL has agreed to donate all their profits from this project to the MARVELS AND MIRACLES enterprise, which I formed initially to help clarify the rights to the much-missed MIRACLEMAN, so that ultimately old and new stories can again be put into the hands of MiracleMan’s readers. Once those rights have become clear, I plan to dedicate all of the profits which any MIRACLEMAN publishing might generate, beyond those needed to make sure that the original creators are being properly paid, to comics-related charitable organizations.”
