  1. I think Manco's art has finally gotten better, except I still think he overuses the scratchy and blotchy ink. Andy's stuff so far has been great. I like the beginning of the book, perfect little nuggets like that piece of info make the book and character great. I'm just glad to see John doing some stranger than usual magic. Snorting St. Nick has to be a good way to immediately hook into the power of belief but I think there has got to be better ways. Though the power of belief has always been his best weapon, from Swamp Thing destroying the monsters, to the twig he gave that feller in the last one. Anyway, that's all I've got for now.
  2. I think one of the hardest things to do, after being gone for a long time, is finding a way to jump back in. Hello peoples. Anyway, I like this question, but it's a hard one to answer certainly. I think I'd like to see John's character get more active. I always like when he has a goal better than when things happen to him. When I played with the idea of writing fan fiction I had arc ideas but no longer. Hmmm. uh....good question.
  3. Just read Torso. Good stuff. I like the art and the story. Interesting to learn about the downgfall of Elliot Ness. I hear it will be a movie made by David Fincher. Hope it doesnt just look like seven 2
  4. I enjoyed Mike Carey's run until leonardo Manco came into it. I dislike his art very much, it looks messy and dark and covered with ink. Most disagree but the best is Marcelo Frusin, he sets up space like no one else and can manipulate light and shadow. Plus he uses great mouth close ups which have a great effect. John looked a little young for 53 of course, but the same goes for Manco's. Sean phillips is right under Frusin. As for Writers.... I havent read all the comics yet unfortuantely and Mike Carey is the one I am most familiar with. Ennis is good too but I have started to dislike Steve Dillon's art. Love him from swamp thing though. Alan Moore.
  5. My brother said I would like Hellblazer if i liked Preacher and so I picked up Dangerous Habits and number 184 and 185 and have been getting them ever since and colecting the back issues and tpbs.
  6. I like azzarello's run. Its within each writers rights I think to take the character to a.) a different place and b.) bring a bit of themselves to the work. Plus I don't blame him for bringing Constantine to America in any way, write what you know and hes american. A little research into english life and backstory may have been a good thing for fans but he wanted to make it his own and do you really think someone who reads a book can peg what its like. Maybe i just sympathize because I am a fellow Chicagoan. I like "Loveless" though. But I have been itching for a good western for a while and Marcelo Frusin is the best artist ever. I think so anyway.
  7. question? Was Brian Azzerello making a comment on Bruce Wayne and Batman is the Highwater tpb? I wonder..
  8. Anyone other than Ben Affleck.
  9. DAmn! I second the notion, hopefully it spreadas around to other colleges, but highly doubtful.
  10. I want shaun of the Dead figures. What the f-ck?
  11. Haven't seen this movie, Don't plan on it. Iwoan Gruffud was alright in King Arthur. But most 20 year olds agree that Jessica Alba can do no wrong.
  12. I had a teacher who walked around everywhere with a tpb of Dark Knight Returns and said he was in the hundredth time reading it. He was pissed at the idea of Batman Begins and always said they should do Dark Knight with Clint eastwood as Batman. Which i think would be great if only clint was a tad younger. a tad. Because in my partial eyes, Clint Eastwood can do no wrong.
  13. I go to the Chicago Comic Con each year, but I would never be able to make it to San Diego with the money I make. Especially for something that eventually just comes to us in IL anyway.

    Shit.... I like Frusin damnit. Especially his half arsed shit on Carey's run, more so than his Azzarello stuff. I must say I guess if I'm forced into a side, I belong with the Converts. I was only 3 years old in 88 when the first came out. And I was born the year Alan Moore wrote Constantine into ST. I didn't even read comics until Hellblazer. I still don't read too many. Usually hellblazer similars too. The Last one I collected was the five issue Criminal Macabre. That long ago. But my definition of John is not really Azzarello, I don't much like that stuff. I like Carey's I guess. If I could get my hands on some cash I'd continue my search for back issues. I don't have much of Anyone other than Carey and Ennis. And the first three issues as well as a ST trade. Oh well. I like Hellblazer and intend to read all the issues, whether on trade or back issue.
  15. I desperately want the Pat Bateman figure. But no, all farkin sold out at the mall. hmmmm bateman - e = BATMAN! What? "Hey Halberstran! Why are there copies of the styles section on the floor?"
