arseface is there from the start and has already made some ergh trips, that werent in the comic.
the salvation arc is already finished in most parts.

......Seriously now ?

Have they even bothered to do Angelville for one ? My guess is no.

And really, they're gonna bring this up now, and not later in the story when Custer is supposed to drift there as a broken man, both physically and mentally, and kind of be tempted to stay by finding his mother there, alive and mostly well, among other, very nice things ?

i concur: the saint is the embodiment of hate. hate is unrelenting, overwhelming and powerful beyond reason. it can under some circumstances be appeased by love for a time at least and the saint does not have any love left to give,
does he? so the only thing to defeat him is to throw a ridiculous high bodycount at him to exhaust him. which basically is how the series ends.

and to answer your question. they have changed a lot. they still haven't been on the road so far and yet some of the story-arcs have taken place already in some way. and herr starr (or any of his associates) have not appeared yet as far as i remember. also the overall tone of the series is a lot more slap-sticky.

Such as ? : O

So I'm curious, how much have they changed ?

Also if they do change anything, can they maybe nerf the Saint a tad ? Cause he was so absurdly overpowered in the original series where the only way to propperly describe it is bad writing.

Yeah, Milligan and Lemire certainly had their worst work published for a Hellblazer title. Oliver is more hit and miss for me, but he had just hit a career high right before starting on Hellblazer. It almost seems as if DC want to punish people for liking John Constantine rather than just canceling the book. An eternal purgatory for those of us sinners.
It's been a more recent development however, as Jamie Delano was doing his best work on Hellblazer. That was before DC decided that John Constantine should be a character who appeals to fans of, say, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, rather than, say, Ramsey Campbell.

How many incarnations of Papa Midnite have we seen now? Just because he first appeared in issue #2 of Hellblazer, he must considered one of those recurring characters whose legacy must be kept going from version to version, much like a Marvel Universe character like Blob (from X-Men) or Gladiator (from DD). They appeared so early in the titles, they must be important to the mythos and must keep being used from series to series, whether there's a good story for said character or not.

I'm not reading this new series, and heavily disagree on the Milligan (but you know that already), however I will say that I felt annoyed how Ennis killed Midnite off so damn quickly back in the day.

It's a pity that Flintstones book will be ending with Issue #12 according to DC's latest solicits. But the writer does have a gay beat poet-reinvention of Snagglepuss in the works for anyone's that interested.

Dammit. I was really liking that one. Fuck you DC >_>
