Remember the good old days when our John was only hunting for gin?

There was another cover featuring John's...I think, police profile? Ade Brown and Jim McMahon ( :wink2: ) were listed as aliases for our John.

Shame I could not find Tim B at the last Motor City Con, I wanted to get 214 signed.

Ennis – While not every plot in Ennis's run was the most riveting, he was the one that really made me see Constantine as a person rather than a character (my favorite issue of the series is [currently] #67 - "End of the Line" - wherein Kit leaves John causing him to go out on his own. To see him be defeated not by a supernatural force, but just by being John Constantine made it all the more meaningful).

Welcome, I think that's a great summation of Garth's writing at its best and the reason why 'Dangerous Habits' will always be my first recommendation to anyone thinking about reading some Hellblazer comics.

This, IMO. Dangerous Habits always felt like the definitive Constantine story to me. Kind of has it all.

A massive re-read of the good stuff is in order, to remind me why I loved this character to begin with. Then I am chucking the floppies in favor of the trades. Simply no room at the inn.

[edit] oh, and welcome.

It's why I gave up Southern Bastards in favor of TPBs. I have to wait til January of 2018 for the 4th volume, so it's pretty much like collecting the single issues.
