Hellblazer #24 Review: A Mixed Bag Representative of Constantine Himself

John Constantine is at the mercy of a mob boss’ spirit in the body of an ex-girlfriend. Burke Day is in the body of Margaret Ames, and the Huntress incapacitated across the room.

Today, John Constantine Talks Harry Potter

The rather entertaining and well-regarded Hellblazer/Harry Potter fanfic by Camwyn sought to place John Constantine in one of the four house of Hogwarts, via the Sorting Hat. “Will you get on with it, you bloody sack of stitches?” “All right, then. I’ll make it quick. Not Ravenclaw, not Slytherin- Gryffindor would never forgive me if I put you […]

Jamie Delano, Novelist

I really like Jamie Delano‘s writing. From Captain Britain to John Constantne: Hellblazer to Animal Man to Outlaw Nation to 2020 Visions to Crossed Badlands to Necropolis to Rawbone, he’s a comic book writer whose work I have been very happy to follow. It’s just, he’s not writing comics at the moment. He’s a novelist and a […]

Hellblazer, Starfire And We Are Robin Go To Second Prints

A Comic Show – I’m Starting To Make Mine DC You…

Aaron Haaland of A Comic Shop in Orlando, Florida, writes: Hey Fandom, I’m back with another stack of New Comics Now! Last Tuesday my son, Justice, was born.

Captain Carrot Will Be Part Of The DC Universe In July

Today’s Justice United short story from some unidentified DC Comic book features a look around the whole DCU picking up folk who could be in the new Justice League United, at some point, who give their blessing to be called when necessary. And the last page gives a splash on all the folks who can […]

Constantine Was… A Post 9-11 Punk Rocker Now?

John Constantine, when introduced into the DC Universe, was a rare creature. One who aged in real time. Since his introduction in the early eighties, he went on to get old. To celebrate his birthdays. And to marry someone far too young. His time on this earth was marked, including his time as a punk […]


John Constantine Loses The Trenchcoat

It’s come to define the character. John Constantine, wide boy occultist, smoking a cigarette, lighting up the creases of his trenchcoat. But not any more. DC have taken away his years, taken away the politics, taken away his bisexuality and now they have come for his coat. From a press jolly between DC and their […]

Dan DiDio Just Answered My Questions On Prez, Doomed, Mystic U And Section 8

So I write this recently. About how there were four books from the June mini-relaunch that I was really excited about, but seemed not to be lighting the fanbase on fire. Prez, Doomed, Mystic U and Section 8. So, since I was watching the InStore Comic Convention Kickoff, and Dan DiDio was on the screen, […]
