    Sadly, it's a dog-eat-John world out there.

    Flashpoint/New 52 and Beyond

    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. Thanks! 06-2011 Brightest Day #23 06-2011 Brightest Day #24 07-2011 Green Arrow #12 08-2011 Brightest Day Aftermath: The Search for Swamp Thing #1 09-2011 Brightest Day Aftermath: The Search for Swamp

  7. I love Bermejo's artwork on this story, but the writing? Woof--Azzarello's mangling of the British voice and terminology continues.

    Are you a Milligan or a Milligant?

    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

    Constantine, New 52 to Present

    Hi, folks, Some of you might remember me from years back. I used to post here regularly and also used to run a website called Roots of the Swamp Thing. I took that site down long ago and stopped reading Swamp Thing and John Constantine comics, but I've decided to get back into them again. Does anyone here have a complete list they could share with me of all Constantine-related appearances since the start of the New 52? If so, I'd very much appreciate it, as my reading these stories will also double as research for a book I'm writing. Thanks in advance. :) --Rich Handley (info@hassleinbooks.com)

    Revisitations 5: The Brian Azzarello Affair (2000-2002)

    Azzarello's run started out so promising, with John in prison. I was immediately intrigued. However, as the storyline progressed, it quickly fell apart. After that opening story arc, it soon became apparent that Azzarello simply didn't understand the character or the series, as John was reduced to a grinning bastard who brought bad luck from town to town, and never seemed to give a crap about anyone. In every way, that was not John. The final several story arcs were very weak, and by the time John shagged a dog, I decided I wasn't even reading Hellblazer anymore. The series had nowhere to go but up after he left. I was so glad when Mike Carey arrived.
