Jason, you'll get us all into terrible trouble!

Actually, I dreamed this morning that this thread had been discovered and invaded by Tumblrists. Are you the one to make my dreams come true?

Which makes me curious; I found Highwater (edit: Good Intentions, actually; Highwater was the KKK one) quite vague and ambiguous about what exactly happened with the dog, but I've seen a lot of people talk specifics. Crappy as the story was, I might have to re-read that bit just to see whether or not I'm super-dense about canine sex acts. Which I think is valuable information about oneself.

edit: OK not ambiguous at all. Maybe I just blocked it out. Still a crappy story.

Unfortunately this would probably be lost on most protesters as they likely have not read the comic.

Or it could make it worse, they may think this abomination of an idea was born in this forum...

It's funny that this is also the most popular thread on the forum. We've all grown bored with stupid things like who will play Zed and what next DC occult character is showing up in the show....instead, we'd rather discuss about John being bi.

Anyway, after Jason's picture, we might as well close up shop and head home. Our job on Straight to Hell is finished.

Ah cmon. Who plays zed or if the stranger shows up is interesting yes, but it can be a total disaster. I had high hopes for the issue of constantine with the stranger and it was bollocks. It all depends on wether or not they get the characters and maybe more important their interaction right. Also especially for conjohn and zed, do the actors get some kind of chemistry? i would be more invested if they announced zatanna for the show, but only because she is my comic-crush (maybe not in the current nu52 version, that is way to slutty. Like I have seen porn were the actresses are dressed more decent).
