    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.

    Comics Shipping the Week of December 10th 2018

    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.

    Special Ales Kot Approvals

    I tried out that first collection of Wolf and just could not get into it, I gave up about halfway through and moved on to reading something else. It was the art that really killed it for me, I didn't like it all. I might have been able to look past it if the story had engaged me more, but again, just couldn't get into it. Kot may not be to my tastes, but I'd be open to reading something else by him in the future.

    Black Hammer and the worlds of Jeff Lemire

    Finally caught up on the last few months of Black Hammer material. It's funny, I was so unimpressed with the first two issues of Quantum Age, since I've never cared a bit about the Legion of Super-Heroes, but those cliffhanger endings for issues 3 and 4 have sucked me right into the story. Age of Doom, however, totally lost my attention with the 2-part Colonel Weird story. Even though it had some cute ideas (Inspector Insector!), the art work and "creator" nonsense killed it for me. Looking forward to Cthu-Louise, though!

    Chantinelle's sigil

    Chantinelle mentions at the end of Rake at the Gates of Hell that, due to the First of the Fallen being taken out of the equation, all of the rules of Hell were being rewritten, which is how she's able to cure John's lung cancer that the FotF had given back to him. I always just assumed that's how she was able to return to Hell, but it was never explicitly stated.

    Hellblazer Q&A

    Speaking of the Carey run, didn't I read somewhere that he wanted to use Zed during "Staring at the Wall" but got denied by editorial? Is the Alba character who Carey slotted in to take Zed's place? Wonder why Zed got denied?

    John Constantine, Legend Of Tomorrow ?

    I'm really enjoying Legends this season, the last episode retained the goofy charm while still giving some really great Constantine material for Matt Ryan to work with. The stuff in the pub about John and his mum was pretty great.

    Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    I took that Midnighter/Apollo tease to be just that, a tease. Everyone's expecting them to show up eventually, but since this is the only walk-on appearance they've made I don't think we're going to see them again. Granted, they've not been seen in the DCU since around the time Rebirth happened, so who knows. I also haven't read the newest issue of The Wild Storm yet, so they could be on every god damned page and I just don't know it yet, lol.

    What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    For anyone interested in checking out the 30th anniversary Hardcover for free, before its even released in stores I believe, it's up on Hoopla now. I downloaded it but haven't read through it yet.

    Image Comics

    Yeah, I was down for everything in that synopsis as well until it got to the "monster hunter" bit. Might still check it out, I dig Sandford Greene's artwork.
