    DC Comics

    I think I read something about Snyder and Capullo doing a Black Label Batman book a few weeks ago, but that might have been some weird kind of fever dream. They keep releasing trade collections rebranded with Black Label, though, like New Frontier and All-Star Superman. Why the fuck those two comics, which I would consider all age reads, are now branded with a mature readers imprint label I will never understand. I think Watchmen trades have Black Label imprint designs as well.

    I read through that Complete Phonogram recently (think I posted about it on here, maybe?) and I loved it. Gillen very much writes stories I want to read, though I'm way way WAAAAAY behind on Wicked & Divine, and god damn do I wish he'd had a run on Hellblazer. The only new comics I'll be reading are Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, and that's pretty much because I have to stay current for my Ghost Rider podcast. I've gone down to trade waiting on Hoopla for everything DC, Dark Horse, and Image. Marvel releases a lot more sporadically on there, so it's a good thing there's not much Marvel stuff I'm interested in at the moment.

    Constantine in Tom King's Batman # 63

    I haven't read a single issue of King's Batman run and had no idea a Constantine appearance was happening until I saw the cover image on Comixology this morning. I was intensely curious how King would write Our John, and even though I have no god damned idea what the fuck is going on in the story I really enjoyed how Constantine is written. The character sounds intelligent again for the first time in, what, maybe a decade? I actually really recommend it, maybe because I'm spoiled for a well-written John (and I always dug how Mikel Janin drew Constantine in JLDark), and now I'm itching to see a Tom King Hellblazer story.

    Marvel's One World Order

    I caught up on the Uncanny X-Men relaunch up through this week's issue # 10, and boy howdy is it a fucking mess. The Avengers creative teams did a pretty great job with this weekly one-series gimmick during "No Surrender" last year, but the X-Men teams have really struggled to make this anything other than a 3 issue story stretched out waaaaaaay too fucking long. And at the end of the day, this 10-issue relaunch is nothing but a trailer for another crossover event. So very disappointing that Marvel just can NOT get the X-Men right, that franchise has been fucked for years now.

    Of all the past Batman creators to get for an anniversary celebration, Kevin Smith would probably be on the bottom of the list. Who in their right mind would read Cacophany or Widening Gyre and then say "yeah, Kevin Smith GETS Batman"? To think, there's no Grant Morrison, no Alan Grant, no Chuck Dixon or Doug Moench, but we get Smith. Seems fair. 🤮

    John Constantine, Legend Of Tomorrow ?

    John, are you still watching Legends? I thought the last two episodes with the mid-season finale were some really solid Constantine centered stories. The comedy is really working in the series favor, I think, and while I'm iffy on the fact that they doubled down on stuff from the Ming Doyle run I still think Matt Ryan's portrayal of John is aces.

    Nothing for me this week, which is a blessing since my money is all tied up with Christmas gifts right now.

    Constantine and Batman in Batman: Damned - Starting This September

    The artwork is unbelievably good, it's Bermejo at his grittiest best. I just wish he had a better story to draw.

    Constantine and Batman in Batman: Damned - Starting This September

    I remember that, and I think the seriousness of it here is my biggest problem. It's kind of a natural way to take the character if you're playing it for laughs, like Ennis did, but Azzarello does it with such a straight face that it makes the entire comic look fucking ridiculous.

    Constantine and Batman in Batman: Damned - Starting This September

    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.

    Other comics we read recently

    Been reading through the Complete Phonogram recently, and it's so so good. I'd read the original "Rue Britannia" mini way back in the day and really enjoyed it, but never picked up the follow-up series. "The Singles Club" was fantastic on just about every level, and I'm about halfway through the good-but-not-quite-as-good "Immaterial Girl" mini. I really, really wish Keiron Gillen had been given a chance on Hellblazer, I think Phonogram proved he'd have produced at the very least a thoroughly interesting run with John.

    Honestly? Because it has Ghost Rider in the cast. I co-host a Ghost Rider podcast and Avengers is one of the series we regularly review. I had high hopes for Aaron's Avengers series, but so far I've not really been digging it. If Robbie Reyes wasn't in the series, I probably would have dropped it around issue # 4.

    Just the two Black Hammer comics and Avengers # 11 for me.
