I've given up ever expecting Hellblazer to truly be a horror book anymore.
After more than a decade without the book living up to fitting in to the horror genre, in the least, it's far too late to expect a return to roots at this point.
I don't think the new DC allows horror in their titles, because it could potentially scare little children.
That artwork doesn't do much for me either. It's hard to truly believe in a scary story, when the artwork looks like it's from a young adult cartoon show.

Oh, wow. I'm out. So, Simon Oliver's run is going to go downhill as a colossal failure, I'd have to say....12 issues of searching for the Djinn. I'm guessing Oliver's run will end with, "I found them!".

Nothing against Tim Seeley, but I've just never read anything by him that I've found in any way exceptional. Oliver had the peak-of-his-career Last Gang in Town right before he took over on Hellblazer, and he churned out the most boring run on the book I can think of....probably even worse, in some ways, than the Ming Doyle misfire (although, in other ways, Doyle's was just terrible even compared to Oliver's).

Wasn't Seeley a member of this forum at one point?

"I finally did it! I finally found the Djinn!"

Those are some terrifying demons he's going up against there.

I'm not sure about that, things are getting pretty bad. The American/Hydra military just bombed Las Vegas off the map, because a superhero resistance group was hiding in the city.
