I know almost nothing on this character, so this should be a great read.

I'm going to be generous and say this book will last 14 issues.

At least it doesn't look like a 5 year old kid with crayolas colored this.

because of the parental advisory and the name of the character don't match. Even if they make it work with amazing writing like they did in Scarlet Spider, its not gonna sell well... but we can hope.

There will be at least 16 issues as that's how long the Alan Moore stories lasted I believe.

They will sell well on Alan Moore's name and the historical importance alone, though maybe only in trade form ($6 an issue for a reprint comic seems a bit ridiculous to me), Marvel will definitely make their money back and more eventually.

I think they should have gone back to the Marvelman name personally, Miracleman has Christian connotations but they've got the parental advisory as was mentioned earlier (there's actually a rather graphic birthing scene in a later issue).

I'm going to wait for the trade personally.
