Thanks for posting this stuff, Mars. I’m a big fan of this run but my collection has a some gaping holes in it, if you know what I mean. Moore’s stark take on what a “superman” might actually be like or act like has, in my opinion, heavily influenced comics and even movies ever since. Actually, “Marvelman” always kind of made my hair stand up a little, but there’s Moore for ya. Take ‘er easy.

Maybe it’s just his highly-charged energy field making your hair stand on end!
Moore’s basic ideas of the superhero as superman, we agree, continue to be explored or simply exploited today. Many of today’s younger readers have been prevented from seeing these highly influential stories due to their limited and collectible nature.
We’d like to have them all in print someday, because we’re just huge geeks like that. For now, we will be happy filling in the more expensive gaps with some pretty decent scans!
