    Yep! Lots more. The character first appeared in the pages of Swamp Thing, before he even had his own series. This web-site lists every known appearance of John Constantine. Enjoy. http://www.qusoor.com/hellblazer//jcindex.htm

    That sure was a classic period for Batman / Detective Comics. Before Batman became all about punching people.

    My editor Lou Tambone and I are pleased to announce that our upcoming HELLBLAZER essay anthology will feature a foreword by none other than HELLBLAZER's creator himself, the incredibly talented Jamie Delano. Lou and I are ecstatic to have Jamie (who, it turns out, is one of the nicest people around) in the book, and we're grateful to contributors James Wilkinson and Draško Roganović for helping us to make this happen. (Jamie's name will be added to the final cover, of course.)

    Most people here probably already know about this, but just in case, I thought I'd mention that Lemire's next Black Hammer spin-off will be a World War II-era mini-series fleshing out some elements of the Golden Age of the Black Hammer Universe. The series will be titled Black Hammer '45. The series will begin in March. https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/42011/black-hammer-fights-nazis-new-miniseries

    Morrison wrote full 5 pages of text at the end of Nameless HC- sending you off to various books, sources, real life places, mythology, Dark Side of the Tree of Life, schools of magic, "dreammachine", Enochian language, forgotten ruins, Aeonic handover- and that's just Chapter One of Six. I can post the pages somewhere if anyone's interested in digging through this book again with a semblance of a compass. I know i will be picking at it, because it's just so beautifully done and weird.

    You're sure it was a girl? The dog in that Azzarrello story might have been expecting a call as well... ?

    I recently re-read the entire pre-New 52 runs of Swamp Thing, Hellblazer, and Books of Magic as research (that was a LOT of comics), and I was reminded of just how poorly I feel Milligan handled Constantine as a character. Sure, he had some interesting plots--particularly "Suicide Bridge" and "India"--and the bit with John obsessed with cutting off his offending thumb was pretty damn funny. But his tenure was FILLED with inconsistencies with prior writers' runs (his use of Beano comes to mind, for instance), the artwork didn't work for me at all, and Epiphany remains my least favorite love from John's life. Zed, Marj, Angie, and especially Dani and Kit were all so much better characters, yet Milligan tried so hard to get readers to buy into the idea that this 23-year-old kid was somehow the love of 60-year-old John's life. Plus, to make things even creepier, he had Epiphany fall in love with him at age nine! It all made no sense and was, in my opinion, the second worst era of Hellblazer, after Mina's run. it's a shame, too, as it DID have some good stories and some solid moments from time to time. But it just didn't jibe with all that came before. John cleaned up his act at the end of Carey, rid himself of his Golden Boy and Ravenscar baggage during Diggle's run, and then... went right back to dressing like a homeless guy and spending all his time getting stoned for no good reason, despite all of his prior character evolution. And that ending? Ugh. That being said, re-reading all of Swamp Thing, Hellblazer, and Books of Magic in chronological order was a pretty damn amazing experience. I highly recommend it, as it allows you to get a much better picture of how things all fit together (or don't). --Rich

    Hi, folks! I'd like to announce a new book about John Constantine's history in comics and on the large and small screens, coming later this year. Special shout-out to group members Ade Brown, Draško Roganović and James Wilkinson, who are in the writing lineup. This is a project I'm quite proud of, and I hope to be able to release the gorgeous cover image soon. My apologies if anyone views this as spam! --Rich Handley * * * FROM BAYOU TO ABYSS: EXAMINING JOHN CONSTANTINE, HELLBLAZER Edited by Rich Handley and Lou Tambone Cover by Leah Mangue Coming this year from Sequart Research & Literacy Organization Essays by Ade Brown, John E Boylan, James Chambers, Julianne Clancy, Nancy Collins, Brian Cronin, Joseph Brandt Dilworth Jr., Sabrina F, Richard Gray, Robert Greenberger, Rich Handley, Robert Jeschonek, Ross Johnson, Matthew Levine, Martín A. Pérez, Draško Roganović, Frank Schildiner, Tony Simmons, Lou Tambone, Kaz B. Towner, John Trumbull, James Wilkinson, and Genevieve Williams In a universe populated by heroes and villains clad in colorful, tight-fitting outfits, you might not expect a chain-smoking ex-punk rocker wearing slacks, a tie, and a trenchcoat to stand out among the rest. Yet when British occultist John Constantine showed up in Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing run, that’s exactly what happened. Constantine’s arrival elevated Swamp Thing profoundly, and it wasn’t long before John had his own spinoff title, Hellblazer, which outlived its parent series and spawned several onscreen adaptations. Quick with a quip, hesitant to involve himself in others’ lives yet often compelled to do so, Constantine has a weakness for narcotics and alcohol binges, an unnatural obsession with the occult, and a long list of lovers he’s betrayed, hurt, and discarded. John has slain his twin brother, taunted Satan, outwitted demons and angels alike, been trapped in Hell, and even fathered an elemental. Through all of this, he has somehow managed to come out on top, though his loved ones have usually ended up caught in the crossfire. Edited by Rich Handley and Lou Tambone, the editors of Sequart’s Somewhere Beyond the Heavens: Exploring Battlestar Galactica, this volume examines the mage’s history from his earliest appearances to the present — not only in the pages of Swamp Thing and Hellblazer, but also on film and television. Essay contributors include Swamp Thing scribe Nancy A. Collins, Constantine TV series writing assistant Matthew Levine, former DC Comics editor Robert Greenberger, and a wonderful lineup of other talented comics historians. At times, John Constantine can be a complete bastard. He has questionable hygiene and a lack of ethics, and he’ll likely hurt anyone foolish enough to let him into their lives. But John is nonetheless a hero — well, a Byronic hero, in any case. As fans, we wouldn’t have him any other way. http://sequart.org/books/57/from-bayou-to-abyss-examining-john-constantine-hellblazer/

    Sometimes I wish I had kept an inventory of the different comic books I own. Not for reasons of value, but due to the fact that with the size of my collection now, I tend to forget sometimes if I already own an individual issue of a series or not. Plus, since my organization of my comics went straight to hell (plug! he he), I can't tell you where a certain comic may be stored anymore. So, I can't just go to a certain box and look in it to make sure that I don't already own that issue. It was a lot easier when my collection consisted of, say, thirty different series. I know which issues of Uncanny X-Men I already own (all of them, except for issue #1 and Giant Size #1, but I own reprints of both of them), for example. So, that's easy to remember. heh Remembering if I ever bought that particular one-shot from 2010 when it was released.....well, no, that's not so easy to remember. Trying to figure out where that one individual comic may now be stored, if I did buy it, yeah, almost impossible at this point.

    BPRD: The Devil You Know #15-The End. Amazing! Mike Mignola kept his promise. All the prophecies came together. It really was the end of the world, and the new race of man. All the waiting was worth it. There was a long stretch of nothing happening and fear that Mignola had lost his thread, but this completes one of the greatest universes ever created in comic books. I am pleased. Sure, Mignola still has plans for some more flashback stories featuring Hellboy, so there is still more comics to come. Everything has been wrapped up now, and the rest is just icing on the finished cake.

    Girl in the Bay #1 (by J.M. DeMatteis)-This is really very good. It reminds me quite a bit of those original comics from Vertigo that DeMatteis wrote for the imprint when it was first starting. It's a series very much worth reading and following. Highly recommended, especially for long-time fans of DeMatteis. Red Sonja #1 (by Mark Russell)-This is also very good. I like that Russell adds some levity to the "sword and sorcery" sub-genre. Not in a spoof manner of sending up the tropes of said sub-genre (which gets old and usually isn't even funny), which has been done before, but in a way where Russell is mocking imperialism. I'll keep reading this. So far, another hit for Mark Russell.

    Immortal Hulk #11-So, even though my law-suit against Marvel for spousal abuse is still on-going, I thought why should I punish myself by avoiding one of the best comic books currently on the stand, written by one of my favourite writers, just because it requires me to buy a Marvel Universe series every month? I am so glad I gave in and started reading this comic again. This is the perfect point to start picking up the book again, with Hulk in Hell. A letter writer published in this issue made me realize something. This really is very similar to Alan Moore coming on Swamp Thing. No, this direction won't stick as the new status quo, and there was already a definitive Hulk run by Peter David, so it's not the exact same. However, Ewing is revitalizing the Hulk concept in the same way as Moore did with Swamp Thing. If this run followed on from the original Lee/Kirby Hulk issues, it could be read in the same manner as what Moore accomplished with Swamp Thing. He has distilled the dark elements lurking in the background of those Lee/Kirby issues and unleashed pure horror and madness from the concept. This is, without a doubt, the best that a Hulk comic has been since somewhere in the middle of the David run, when he started to lose momentum. The whole David run is worth reading, but the high quality of the first chunk of his run is lost at some point. It's a shame that a lot of readers who would enjoy this comic won't ever give it a chance because it's Marvel's Hulk, so it can't ever hold up as a stand-out horror comic book. Conan the Barbarian #1-Jason Aaron was, of course, a good choice to write a Conan book. I can't think of any current comic writers better suited to writing Conan than Aaron, except for Cullen Bunn, who already wrote the character at Dark Horse. Aaron is writing Conan similar to his Thor, only without the nobility. However, I can't see myself continuing to read the comic. A lot of discussion has gone on about the current state of comic books and their ever-declining sales. I don't think a reason that is given enough credence is due to overly-long story-arcs. Until the year 2000, for the most part, comic book stories (or superhero ones anyway) were mostly self-contained, usually with building sub-plots and sometimes an over-arching character plot-thread. You would read the story that month and the next month you'd move right along to another exciting story. After all, it's not like the complexity of (99.99% of) these stories is at the level of War and Peace. A month is a nice wait between issues of a comic book. Well, if you have a six-part story-arc, that takes up half of a year worth of the comic. Plus, how excited are you to read each installment of this one complete story-arc? You probably get bored with parts two, three, and four usually. I know I quite often do. "Oh, another issue of Iron Man? And, it's part 3 of this story-arc? And, there are still three more chapters to go? Yawn!". Of course, some stories truly do need the breathing room, and that's perfectly fine too, but it's a rare occasion that the typical mainstream superhero comic book needs five issues to tell its simple story. Which brings me back to Conan. This issue was going really well, as it seemed like Conan had wrapped up everything in a nice, neat bow at the end of the story. Oh wait, no. The story is still going on. What's this? The story isn't over. It's going to keep going. Yawn. There was a perfectly fine Conan story contained within this first issue. Conan is not the "great literary novel". Roy Thomas did perfectly fine writing a lot of Conan stories which took up exactly one issue of the comic, before you moved on to Conan's next exciting adventure. There was no reason to drag out the plot for more issues. There were some exceptions, sure, but it wasn't the rule. Now, every comic has to be five or six parts. I think it just wears the reader out. No one wants to read a six-part story-arc where Iron Man fights Blizzard. It can easily be accomplished in one issue. On the plus side, it does seem like Aaron is taking a page from his Thor run and is going to be skipping around in Conan's time-line, with some stories featuring King Conan. I do like that Marvel is playing off of their original Conan comic book with this series too. The best part is that the reader won't have to see the original Robert E. Howard fiction adapted to comic books for a third time (after Dark Horse re-did all those stories again). So, there are some positives to the new Conan series, but I don't believe it is enough to get me to stay interested in this Conan comic.

    I though Jeff Lemire deserved his own thread. I might do the same for other writers of note, since the Old Ones just ain't up to much. Oh, and some of Christian's nice reviews of books get lost in the generic threads. http://www.multiversitycomics.com/news/black-hammer-45/ Oh that's nice. I missed the film deal stuff, but actually, I could think of many more Lemire books I'd rather see on the screen before Black Hammer. Not at all a criticism of Black Hammer, as Jason T knows, it's the best thing that's ever happened to Lou K.

    There's 5 pages of text - the rest is design process, some original pages - i was probably going to take hq pictures of them, so it's not a problem. Aah, google drive, i forgot about that.

    Concept art for an unused John Constantine in Injustice 2. Some other mystic faces of the DCU like Etrigan and Detective Chimp were also unused, and can be found on the same artist's page. Probably for the best John wasn't included in the game, since he's not exactly a fighting-game type and the last thing we need is more of "pullin' fireballs and sigils out of me arse" Constantine but still would've been a cool fanboy moment to pit Constantine against Hellboy.

    Hi, everyone. I was hoping someone here might be able to help me. I'm trying to make sure I have every Swamp Thing and John Constantine appearance from 2011 on (that is, ever since the Flashpoint/New 52 reboot) so I can read them all in chronological order. Here's what I know of so far, but I suspect I may have overlooked some stories. If anyone knows of anything missing from this list, I'd be grateful if you could please let me know.

    Sorry, this is going to get political. I see that in the new issue of Captain America, Ta-Nehishi Coates joins the choir. It's become a truism among Democrats and liberals here in 2018 that the United States was a great land until the coming of Donald Trump. As if America really was everything that it promised on the tin until that evil "third positionist" Trump took power. Now, that wonderful, mythic America is being lost. In the newest issue of Captain America, Coates sings a paean of a quainter, better, more innocent time in America after the end of World War II. When everything that America did was good and positive. I am especially incensed with a man like Coates taking up their refrain, considering his father. Ta-Nehishi should definitely know better, if anyone should. Everything his father was fighting against that was wrong in America, and everything that his father was fighting for to try to help America become. The funniest (or most sickening) aspect of this whole revisionist history is that Donald Trump is saying the exact same things. That America used to be so much better in the 1950s and 1960s, and all that was lost. Trump wants to bring back those mythical halcyon days. Hey, just like the Democrats and liberals like to daydream about those "good old days" back in the 1950s and 1960s, when everything was better, and Donald Trump wasn't president. One should be careful of what ones wishes. It wasn't long ago, during the bad old George W. Bush days (and they were incredibly bad days, indeed), when patriotism was the most fashionable to wear it had been in years, and liberals spent their time speaking out against this type of "blind patriotism", pointing out that "true patriotism" (your mileage may vary here) was based around the knowledge that no country is ever perfect and every country can improve. It's sad to see Coates join this same tired bandwagon, forgetting everything for which his father once stood. No, America was never perfect. Those glorious days after World War II when all Americans lived in a virtual utopia, segregation still existed. The government supported blood-thirsty dictators around the world. Sodomy was still punishable by the death sentence in most states. Something like the Tuskegee experiments was considered an acceptable federal policy. It was only a short few years before we'd see the Vietnam War. The far Right in Charlottesville accused "Leftist radicals" of wanting to erase America's past when the government decided to tear down those Confederate war memorial statues. Let's not allow this falsehood to become the truth. Let's never forget the past. If you want a truism, then let's remember George Santayana.

    I'm sick and tired of "I'm John constantine: I lie". It's not like he was some sort of the greatest conman there was that occasionally lied and played games, no it's just pathological by now. At the height of it lying was his superpower... Artwork is amazing.

    Read RTD the other night and if anything you're being far too kind to it! Really read he had an idea for The Demon knocking around and just plunked Ghost Rider into it. The obligatory toilet-humour character...why Garth, why ?!?

    Yes, the Sandman Universe books are mature readers titles. Hellblazer, unfortunately, won't be though, because DC is hoping to start a Sandman Babies spin-off line to appeal to young-adult readers, and this Hellblazer book will be the first step in that direction. No, I'm kidding. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Yes, I would enjoy seeing the continuity be explained away as the post-Vertigo Hellblazer comics being John's version of Hell. He really did shoot himself, and he went to Hell, and that's what the New 52, Convergence, and Rebirth series were. No reason to go in to any big explanations or anything, just mentioning that he's spent the past few years in Hell, and it wasn't pretty, but it's all over now. I'd probably remain pessimistic until the book comes out though. We've been burned a number of times before. We've heard interviews with creators talking about bringing back the JC from the Delano days before....only to get issues of John sitting around musing about a flying shoe, and story-arcs about "mysterious Djinn" stretched out to twelve chapters. So, even though Spurrier is a good writer, I wouldn't get excited about anyone's words until I saw the book.

    Si Spurrier is a good choice. I can't see him being anything worse than what we saw on HB comics since the beginning of the Milligan run. That's not really a high bar though.

    OH OH OH Yea sorry, DP. Plus, now I am into some of the imported stuff and the prices are insane. Time was you could get a Marvel Legend figure for less than $10. Now they are $20 plus. And the SH Figuarts by Bandai are at least $80 (but they are way WAY better quality). So I am buying much more expensive stuff, but less of it, and selling off older stuff to help pay for it. One would think that I would use my spread sheet to determine profit in those situations. Sale price - cost - ebay final value fees - paypal fees but no. I am not even doing that. Now I want to post pictures of toys

    I don't know what I would do if my shop shut down. It's not just a place to buy comics, we often chat about a wide array of things and much laughter is shared. I'd probably just stop collecting individual issues and grab trades online or something. I am not one for digital comics, really.

    Art of the upcoming Constantine x SW Manor reunion Batman team-up "Damned" by Azzarello and Bermejo for DC's new mature-readers imprint Black Label has been floating around on the internet for a while, but now we finally have our look at the words of this tale. https://screenrant.com/batman-damned-comic-preview-constantine/ My first thought... what's up with the choice of font and style for John's narration here? I'm cautious regarding this project, overall. Maybe Azzarello will turn out a surprise worth reading like his Wonder Woman run, or maybe he'll get lost up his own "Azz" once again like a certain storyline concluding his run for certain character appearing in this story.

    Batman: Damned # 2 is out today. I read it. I saw the night club scene and the "brilliant re-imagining" of the character that's found there. Go home, Brian Azzarello, you're drunk and you need to lay down.

    Yep. You do wonder why Ted Pierce never went into comics, really. He'd have done a classic Batman run, at the very least... [ETA: I tell a lie - Duck Amuck was written by Michael Maltese, not Ted Pierce.]

    Green Lantern #1-OK, that was actually really, really good. It turns out that DC really was stupid enough to pick the worst couple of pages out of the entire comic to publish as a preview. That seems....defeating. It makes me wonder if DC editorial requested that Morrison write a really stupid sequence in the middle of the comic, just so people would think the comic was going to be bad. The rest of the issue read fine, then suddenly, right in the middle, it's like Morrison turned the writing over to, oh, I don't know, let's say Dan DiDio, while he took a lunch break. Then, he came back and finished writing the issue. I'm looking forward to seeing where this series goes. It makes me want to dig out my Showcase Presents: Green Lantern volumns.

    Finished DMZ, as moaned about elsewhere some of the plotting felt rushed but otherwise I thought it was some pretty good reading. Fantastic art throughout, even the filler artists brought their A-game. Glad to have finally gotten to read it. Currently reading the first big chunk of ABC Warriors in Mek Files 01. I was a war comic boy growing up and only dabbled in some Eagle and 2000AD so it feels like I've missed out on a significant chunk of classic British comics. Which is to say there's some choice Pat Mills work out there for me to gorge on - ABC Warriors, Nemesis and Slaine.

    Black Hammer had one of those spit-take "wait, what the fuck just happened" cliffhangers that gets my blood pumping. Glad to see the mysteries getting some sort of resolution, even if all they do is lead into even MORE mysteries.

    Oh gosh. Finally caught up. Among other things, because "Lenny", I just wished for Noah Hawley to be given the keys to Shade The Changing Man. "He wore his madness like a coat" Lovely album of cover versions, and the incidental music too. Shame this "season" started with too much weirdforthesakeofit because after episode 3 it's Marvelous

    Did you really want to see more plots about the Djinn after Oliver just wasted twelve issues moving the story by an incremental inch? I, personally, was pretty relieved that we were finally moving on from what Oliver was doing on the title. Seeing what followed upon Oliver's story-arc ending, I wasn't any happier about where the book ended up, but I was still somewhat relieved that it wasn't going to continue being about the Djinn. Really, the book had no excuse for existing other than that DC wanted a Hellblazer comic book.
