  1. Just Got into Hellblazer...

    You've landed on several issues we were annoyed by at the time. With Carey, Gemma had become a rounded Constantine -though vulnerable to trying too hard in the past . Mina had that annoying boyfriend for her but she was still Gemma. Milligan put her in the Comics Refrigerator. And his treatment of Angie was puerile. I like your take on the ending of #300. I may ever write "30 years later in that same pub" on my copy.
  2. The Hellblazer # 14

    This was great fun. Glad to see Constantine's cookery club. Hope that becomes a regular feature
  3. Happy ?

    Oh, hello Grant Morrison TV adaptation https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-first-trailer-for-syfys-happy-looks-like-who-frame-1819199066
  4. Happy ?

    Yep. Even of I hadn't enjoyed the comic, that trailer is convincing

  6. Test & forum update noise

    Sorry folks, it's been pointed out that some of the more private stuff was now in the open part of the forum. So for now, privacy trumps search function, and the lock-up is where you'll have to do an extra click to see new stuff. I moved the creative endeavours thread, because that way your work is promoted to the wider world, how it was before the updates.
  7. Can you see this as a "new topic"? While the tidying happened, it seems we finally got the latest software. So all post moving is on hold until the database is reloaded. Carry on.
  8. Hellblazer pulp

    As we know, the powers that bestride the DC empire often check in here so they can avoid good decisions about Hellblazer. So it occurred to me - with Christian & Dogpoet discussion on the sales figures thread - that it's time once more to bring up the quarterly graphic novel/ tpb/ pulp model. No longer will writers have to cram or extend stories to fit the pretend monthly market when they should be writing long form tales. Writers can be rotated more easily. Tales of the Hellblazer (past times, supporting cast, etc). Artists can be signed up for a volume rather than disjointed art within stories. I reckon 80 pages a quarter is about right. But would settle for 100.
  9. DC Comics

    He could just do the Constantines Past issues.
  10. Hellblazer pulp

    David Hine, definitely.
  11. The Compleat Show Your Face thread!

    Can you people with children post photos off then being awful, so the rest of us can also enjoy them.
  12. Trinity

    They needed a magician rather than Boston Brand. This looks like a job for Nick Necro!
  13. DC Comics

    I am liking Bug by the Allreds. It's very reminiscent of Madman but with golden age DC cameos instead of Beatniks. Sandman and Sandman were ace in the first two issues. Quite liked the Doom Patrol they did.

    How are we all doing?
  15. Comics Shipping the Week of September 18th 2017

    Black Hammer Bug It's only Mike Allred & Jeff Lemire keeping me buying new comics at the moment.
  16. Upgrade

    The new stuff is bloody good. May even solve the mythical "search" problem. And this so-called "new posts" affair.
  17. TPB Covers

    No. That one's ugly. This is probably going to be ruined by placement, even if he's given them space.
  18. TPB Covers

    Now that's lovely
  19. Just Got into Hellblazer...

    Top insights, Jason, you'll have to aim lower to live up to your namesake though. Have you noticed the links section? http://hellblazer.ipbhost.com/index.php?/forum/14-the-book-of-hellblazer/
  20. Test & forum update noise

    I'll move the current posts to one of these later. I think it's to do with a "guest status" option. We didn't want non members trawling old posts.
  21. Hellblazer pulp

    They need a new model though and we currently get 60 pages a quarter so it's not much different.
  22. Just Got into Hellblazer...

    Welcome. You've got through a lot of the good stuff and I think a fresh eye on the classics would be good to discuss here.
  23. New Writer Starting With Issue 13

    My point exactly.
  24. Forthcoming Attractions
