    John's dead. Long live New52 John (who's actually that sad excuse for a snotty sorcerer, Faust, only with his hair dyed. In time you'll see that I'm right). Now I wish I had bought more Hellblazer TPB's. All is gone now, gonna go back to Hellboy (who's also dead, if I'm not wrong). Well, I'll always have some everlasting Brit comic book to rely on.







    And, oh yeah, fuck you DC.
    Bring back Sandman Mystery Theather, already!!

    Aw, poor Paul Cornell! The farther away from Constantine Cornell is the better.

    It's fine to be a fan and defend DC, but this bending backwards straw grasping is just ridiculous.
    The inestimably overrated Paul Cornell has been writing comics for more than just a "couple of years."

    DCE probably had to cancel HELLBLAZER to keep Cornell away from it.

    Cornell's ACTION COMICS run sank the book. Let's not forget that Cornell pulled poor Death into that abysmal Luthor storyline.

    CAP BRITAIN AND MI13 was good.

    SAUCER COUNTRY is better than I ever expected it to be, but it doesn't make sense most of the time.

    DEMON KNIGHTS is awful.

    Cornell's BATMAN AND ROBIN arc was one of THE worst Batman stories I have ever read.

    Ship Paul Cornell back to Marvel.

    You're right, when he said "fertile creative ground" he couldn't have meant fertile creative ground.

    Geez Luise guy

    Well, I picked up Justice League Dark #0 and Annual #1 today just to see what Constantine is like in the New 52. I hope I still recognize him as "a cheap, flashy little crook".

    And the Punisher is a guy who hangs out on a team with the Hulk now. If you don't like these versions of the characters, that's your problem

    Yep. And anyone who expresses their dismay at the cancellation of Hellblazer in any way that is disapproved by another deserves to be taken to task for it over and over and over again. At this point I have to assume these disapproving people are the same ones who feel that it's appropriate to say "It was just a dog/cat/bird/mouse/etc. You knew it was going to die from the day you got it" to someone mourning the loss of a pet.
