The Yesterday Gambit
"Miracleman: The Yesterday Gambit," reprinted in Marvel Comics Miracleman no 2, reads like a future episode published way ahead of schedule and starting right in the middle of the action.
If it were to be re-published yet again later in its rightful place in terms of fictional chronology, then some of the captions would have to be changed:
"...it is here, in a twilight future some three years hence..." (p. 13, panel 5).
The Miracleman Family remember adventures that they did not have and are made to forget one that they did have. How messed up can they get? later, Miraclewoman tells Moran that his meeting with her at least was real.
