Nice way to handwave the previous series. Hope he gets to do the same with the Imaginary Hellblazer Story.

First couple of pages are a little rough but everything after that looks promising.

I'm just hoping the book is more than a nostalgia fest, that it has something new to say.
If you remember, even before Milligan, many forum members were beginning to lose interest in HB, because it seemed like there was nowhere new for John to go, that he was just spinning his wheels.
Then, DC decided to turn the book in to crap. Now, I hope they aren't going back to that over-reliance on the comfortable and safe to appease us long-time fans after they ruined our favourite character.

Er, comics character? Reiterations of old material is how they sell the same story to the same readers over and over, isn't it?
