    Default Things You Won't See In A John Constantine Comic Book Again

    Dan Didio has written;
    "We're supremely proud of Vertigo's HELLBLAZER, one of the most critically-acclaimed series we've published. Issue #300 concludes this chapter of Constantine?s epic, smoke-filled story in style and with the energy, talent and creativity fans have come to expect from Peter Milligan, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Stefano Landini. And no one should worry that John is going to hang-up his trenchcoat - he lives on in March, in the pages of the all-new DC Comics New 52 ongoing series, CONSTANTINE, by writer Robert Venditti and artist Renato Guedes."
    It's not going to be the same though. It can't be. For example...

    The sex...

    The drugs...

    The violence...

    The bad language...

    The racial epithets...



    The politics...



    More sex...



    The racial politics...



    ...safe sex...



    ...and Alan Moore popping in for a pint.

    Not to mention the religious/political/royal scandals where Prince Charles is a serial killer, or the rewriting of Christianity so that Gabriel rapes Mary nine months before Bethlehem.

    As you do.

    Goodbye John Constantine. We hardly knew you.

    It's been a while wasn't half this stuff was in Constantine before it went to vertigo? Especially the violence.

    But even in those issues of Hellblazer, the character was mostly divorced, or at least separated, from the DCU. This new series is all about intentionally planting him back in the DCU, so I believe Rich's point is valid.

    I haven't read Hellblazer in forever, but I was a big fan in the early years. Really exciting time to be a comics fan in the late 80s. I'm a little sad to see this end.
    I'll assume you liked this post.
