As announced at New York Comic Con, Marvel Comics is reprinting Miracleman! Cory Sedlmeier, the editor of Marvel’s new releases of Miracleman, is looking for original art from the series. Sedlmeier says, “I’m just as enthused as all of you about finally bringing these stories back to print after their long time in limbo.
It’s an honor and a privilege, and we’re striving to present the creator’s work with the utmost care and the highest quality. Nothing can top the original art boards in terms of quality.
If you’re the proud owner of any art from the series, please get in touch with me at cmsedlmeier (at) marvel.com, especially if you have art from Garry Leach’s issues, since those are (obviously) needed the soonest.
The preferred format for scans is full-size, 600dpi color scans saved as TIF files. If a piece is larger than 11 x 17, as is the case with art from the Warrior issues, scans of each horizontal tier of panels (with a little overlap for alignment) are the best option.”
