  1. Ashes & Dust wtf??!

    So I been going through every issue of the series, including cameos as I mentioned on the first thread I made on this forum, the continuity can be a bit messy but I can understand it can be hard to keep up so I forgave a lot...I am mostly loving the series so far, Then I got to Ashes and Dust and that really messed me over *SPOILERS!!* wtf happened? Not only did John die but then they didnt even bother explaining how he came back to life, he is now apparently gay with some guy he screwed over almost 30 years ago? Makes absolutely no sense at all, I hope that writer lost his job for almost ruining one of the best comics of all time. I tried looking for an explanation for how John came back to life, even read some threads on here, but its mostly people reviewing the comic. So did I miss something was it ever explained how he lived? Luckily I am up to #202 and I am loving it, but this is a mayor plothole, its like someone made a hole in my brain.
  2. Super Confused about reading order!

    UPDATE: So I been going through the series and it is some really good stuff. But after trying to follow every issue chronologically, I realized that Gwilym was rigth, some of those cameos are referenced in the Hellblazer issues, but they dont really affect the main Hellblazer story, and just plain dont make sense.. I decided its better to just get through the main Hellblazer series and any Swamp Thing cross-overs, but to read those other cameos separetly as I get them. Also kind of off-topic, I went to a comic warehouse sale today, so I was grabbing anything that had Constantine on it among other series I follow, and I picked up a bunch of Dr Fate issues cause they had this guy on the cover: Apparently is not John but some DC character called Kent Nelson, dam you DC!!! You have tricked me ;_;
  3. Super Confused about reading order!

    Actually you may be remembering it wrong, unless I missed something. In the ending of Hellblazer issue 9, Constantine is about to tell Swamp Thing about his plan, but Swamp just forcefully inserted himself into his body in issue 76 and spends a few panels talking about how he conned the con man, even in issue 10 of Hellblazer, Constantine initially thinks Swamps has murdered him. John had to come back to his body because he was being chased by Nergal, he knew they were at the climax but had no choice, but I can totally see how Abigail may have though he did that on purpose. If I remember correctly, later on in Swamp Thing series, Constantine gets Abigail drunk, and she is shocked he did not try to have sex with her. Awesome, I think hes the one who did Preacher? Loved that series! :)
  4. Super Confused about reading order!

    Awesome! That is exactly what I was looking for, now the timeline makes a little more sense than the guide I was following, although it is still confusing, like how sometimes Constantine has days worth of adventures, but it has only been a few hours in the Swamp Thing... Oh well this is as good as it can get, I am already in issue 10 and liking it a lot. That sounds like a good idea; for Swamp Thing, Alan Moore is considered the "essential run", although I personally love some of the story arcs before and after him (except Season 4, that was just a mess..) does Hellblazer have something like that? The one story arc that fans would say its a must read, I am planning on reading everything anyways, just wanted to see if there is some extra good issues coming up. I thought that was a dick move by the Swamp God:
  5. Rejected Sean Phillips Cover

    That looks like one of the names listed in the Goetia to me 0_0
  6. Super Confused about reading order!

    Well I was trying to do just that... but reading appearance in order would help a lot at least, the site sounds awesome but it seems to be offline, not sure if you typed it wrong or just temporarily down. So are you saying to just read all of Hellblazer in order, then go back and read all the crossovers? Well it seems that some crossovers are important, to read as for example: *SWAMP THING SPOILERS!!!!!!!!* In the last issue of Swamp Thing Season 2, we see that Constantine is at a hospital with a few people witnessing the birth of a Messiah like figure... Swamp Thing Season 3 never even covered this thread point, but techincally Swamp Thing does not know about it. Does it affect the Hellblazer universe at all? Or should I just treat each crossover like its own loosely similar Universe? After all, that is how DC usually "fixes" any problems with continuity....
  7. So I couple of months ago I bought every single issue of Swamp Thing, including cameos..yes even those issues where he teamed up with Challengers of the Unknown... it cost me a small fortune but managed to do it. It was a head-ache figuring out the reading order but eventually figured it out. Now I decided the do the same with Hellblazer and its turning out to be even harder! I am re-reading Swamp Thing as I go, following this guide: http://hellblazertrades.com/ But it simply does not make sense. For example, it says to read up to volume 5 of Swamp thing and then start original sins, yet in issue 5 in original sins, Constantine is visiting Louisiana to check on Alec, but the thing is Alec is "dead" at that point in Swamp Thing...or like how in issue #7 of originals sins Constantine dreams about his friend piggy, yet he does not meet him till volume 7 of swamp thing (which is supossed to come after according to the guide)... Gaah!! its such a head-ache! Does anyone have a guide that simply states which order to read the issues in (including cameos/spin-offs) instead of naming the volumes? Or should I just give up and sell all my trades? Because the way it is now... it is just utterly confusing me and I am not enjoying it too much.
