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 >_>

Would it make me sound like a meanspirited cynic if I said that the only reason they'd allow a Hellblazer anime was so that Milliganhe who must not be spoken of could write John shagging loads of cartoon schoolgirls?

I will never stop defending Milligan's run now ya hear !

: P

And probably.

I only read his Swamp Thing run but he had a very unique art style.

A fair journey.

So I haven't checked out this new relaunch yet due to reasons of geography but if they are gonna do the same shit like they did in the original series, specifically Swamp Thing showing up, may I ask what the point is to have a new one ? : P
