That new solicitation could legitimately be used for almost any story-arc from the mid-portion of almost any HB run to date, really. "John's screwed up, and now Bad Things are happening to him as a result!"

Also, this:

Quote

just might be the worst solicitation text I've ever seen.
"As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness. It preserves the soul from dessication."
- Humphrey Lyttleton, 1921-2008

"The Doctor remembers every Doctor Who story ever told. Every episode, Target book, comic strip and every game of companions and TARDISes that you played as a kid. The universe he lives in has no record of it, because paradoxes and divergent dimensions and the Time War have reset things... but the Doctor remembers and sometimes when he is sad it's because you've stopped being 8 years old and he can't run around the school playground with you anymore."
- some wise soul on the internet somewhere, 2009

That cover is awesome though. Almost gives you vertigo.
Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.

That's the first cover from Simon Bisley I actually like and I agree with Mark on both counts. I've stopped buying Hellblazer issue by issue so I'll probably be picking up the trade.

Well, if that cover is anytthing to go by the story is "John Constantine has a trip on the London Eye and falls off". Silly sod should not have stepped outside for a fag...
