well to be fair, it is what you are doing too. you like the idea of him being anti society to the bone. this is pretty romantic on its own merit. i understand where you are coming from. however i how he was displayed in hellblazer, with having relationships. it was making him seem less of an archetype and more of a human. his human moments made hellblazer so much more readworthy than most of the rest. folks like the bat and supes, they are just to clean an archetype to bring any enjoyment to me. having him break character from time to time makes him even more gritty. he does not need to be in a relationship right now, for that i agree, but he shouldn't be promiscuous. i never read john as a character particulary driven by sexual desire, just as much as the average human propably.
well he did. it was the result of what can only be supposed to have been rape. but still three little demonlings.
And more or less Tefe before them (and that was a joint effort with the Bog God in the driver's seat)
