In his opening introduction to the 1988 published hardcover of stories comprising the opening story arc of Alan Moore's take Miracleman, entitled a Dream of Flying (after having originally appeared serially in Britain's Warrior Magazine), Steve Gerber perfectly describes Alan Davis' work on the series -

"...neither Leach nor Davis ever allows the art to overwhelm the reader or the story. In the tradition of the best film directors, they subordinate style and technique - both of which they possess in abundance - to substance. You see characters and settings, not 'artwork'. It's after you close the book - and realize the images won't go away - that you become aware of how powerful the drawings truly are."

I can't top that description - to me, it perfectly captures why the series has aged so well and continues to be built on by some of the best creators in the graphic storytelling field today.

Acquiring this page represented the convergence of an old friendship and a new one. Anytime I step into the world of 1980's Miracleman or Sandman, I always run into my old friend Joe Melchior...which, to be clear, I consider a good thing. This time he acted as international credit bureau and potential art mule. More importantly, he was friends with my new friend, Jason Harris. Jason has to be one of the more patient & persistent collectors of comic art on the globe - I'm grateful for his trust and tenacity on working with me on this piece. Going forward, I have pledged to reverentially refer to him as 'Dr. Fire'...and the imagery on this page is only one of the reasons!

He's right, those images do stick with you, and it's the understated, walk-through-the-park nature of the "action" that makes it so memorable.

Those guys warned me about you, Bamber! Next time I'm on that side of the pond, there's a long night in a pub waiting for all of us.

I've never read any Miracleman; but art like this makes me want to rectify that!

Sad to see it go, but happy it found a great new home. Equally Chris was very patient with me whilst I worked through the transaction.
