Man, the content per issues seems kinda lame. At the halfway point of the folded booklet, the main Miracleman story ends and then some back-up filler begins. I think these have about 12 or 14 pages of Alan Moore Miracleman content per issue... but content-wise, you get get more than your money's worth.
I read #10, 11 and 12 last night... just 4 more issues to go until I've completed Moore's run. As I read this series, it's funny to me that the best Superman and Captain Marvel stories of the modern era of comics (IMO, natch) were both written by Moore and don't even feature the "real" versions of the characters -- instead, we get Supreme and Miracleman.
That said... SPOILERS
This series is really getting great. I think this is the strongest stuff so far, with Moore's narration really improved over the early issues of the series, becoming much more poetic and establishing mood far more effectively.
Also welcome is John Totleben as of issue #11, a marked improvement over Rick Veitch and Chuck Beckum... but not quite up to the level of Gary Leach and Alan Davis, IMO. He's just a hair under them. That said, his work here is beautiful and perfectly captures the beautiful, tragic and mysterious nature of Moore's writing in these issues.
For me, the introduction of Miracle Woman and the aliens used in creating the Miracleman Family really got things very interesting. Miracle Woman's creepy origins were probably a bit more shocking back in the day but the perspective Moore brings still makes the ideas interesting -- her view that being raped while asleep was nothing when compared to the joy of complete freedom and power she had while in the virtual reality Gargunza created is an interesting one. I think most writers would have gone for the obvious "bitter and traumatized" route here, but Moore makes the character much more mentally strong than that, viewing Gargunza as a laughable insect rather than a powerful jailer.
Seeing the limbo dimension where the host bodies are stored during transformations was also pretty cool -- and slightly creepy, seeing those sleeping, lifeless bodies all hovering in dead space like that. You always hear of the limbos these transformation-based characters go into, but to actually see one was a pretty brilliant move.
And finally, seeing Kid Miracleman trick Johnny into being around other children was a grim and ominous foreshadowing of things to come, especially the infamous rape scene. Johnny really becomes the series' most tragic character and you can't help but feel for this little boy thrust into a living hell.
Anyway, as said, 4 more issues to go!
