KIMOTA! Here's my junk.

Seriously, Quesada?  Do we need to have the center focus of this on Miracleman's junk?
MM has a long, troubled path to re-publication, for good reason.  The Dark Knight and Heath Ledger's turn as The Joker is very much owing it's life to Miracleman.  Comic books simply didn't know they could be "dark and edgy" until Miracleman.
Of course, you wouldn't recognize it at first.  It's only after Young Miracleman comes back (sorry... spoilers) that you get the full picture.  The logical extension of a God among mortals and what would happen, as much as just Alan Moore's regular deconstruction of the Uberman stereotype, comes into play front and center.
But most know this already... we're all just wanting to enjoy these stories like we did back then.  I was lucky in that I was able to read the original run as it was reprinted.  And then as the new stories began.  I hope Gaiman doesn't screw this up like he did the Sandman prequel, which I'm also wanting to read, and now.
