    Uhhh....Yeah, I'm pretty sure that the 8 years of DCU were definitely fan fiction! What if John Constantine interacted with the Justice League and fought his arch-enemy, the amazing Nick Necro? What if John Constantine's whole character was that he was bisexual? What if they relaunched Hellblazer to be just like the Vertigo series again, but rated PG and featuring a never-ending story-arc about John fighting Djinn? I guess Milligan's what if John Constantine married a Goth girl who was 40 years younger than him and that fell in love with him when she was twelve years old also counts..... That all sounds like purely (and very shitty) fan fiction to me!

    Spurrier seems to remember this book needs its quiet moments - with panels of characters staring into space and letting things settle instead of that constant and annoying exposition (e.g. the panel after "tree full of fuckin' angels"). This issue was a little talky but the moments of silence felt like they were from another age. Loving it.

    Those of us still using this forum should wear the "I survived, John Constantine" T-shirt.

    Of course, he's really William Gull, not Noel Fielding...

    Thanks for another year of stout service, Lou! Nothing new for me, picked up the first Witcher omnibus to read over Christmas when down home.

    F*cking loved that. Spurrier nailed it. While it feels authentic, he has his own voice, just as Paul Jenkins and Garth Ennis wrote right-feeling Hellblazer in their own voices. He even sold me on the haunted phone. At first I thought the model Aaron Campbell is using for Constantine was off — I'm a Sting purist, sorry — but after only 2 issues this distinctive iteration of Constantine has really grown on me. The expressive face, the humour, the way he operates. That art though. It's reminiscent of 1980s Richard Piers Rayner, but not stilted. If this is a new era of Hellblazer, I'm excited for it.

    This is proper, isn't it? First time in an age I have felt like writing here because the last few years have been horribly barren. Loved the artwork, sort of like some Manco cross-bred with Jock, trying to get an attitude you see in Sean Phillips' version. (Something about that cocky look, especially when out of his depth.) Good story, that made me think a bit of Andy Diggle's first few issues, before the work pressures made them look slightly perfunctory. And it seems Boris Johnson is using dark magic to fuck the open wounds of the proletariat. You saw that here first...

    Campbell and Bellaire's art by the way...crikey..there's the making of an iconic Constantine duo there - hopefully they can manage the pace of a monthly title. Proper Hellblazer this.

    This is the stuff, maybe just a tad derivative in places but that's the most minor of quibbles.

    As almost every writer who takes over JC basically says the same thing...."We want to take John back to his core roots. This is what I find to be the core motivations for John. etc.", and then we got what we've gotten for over a decade now....I can't say I give a lot of credence to writers saying this exact same song and dance. Yes, I want to believe Spurrier, because I like him as a writer, but I've wanted to believe other writers too.
