  5. Is the "t" intentional? In other words: "vera cruz" or "the longest yard"?
  6. Fucking hell. The idea of Bond a la peckinpah sounds great untill I remember that terrible peckinpah film involving ninjas.

    Retconning

    Now, imagine a new storyline where the family man wasn't really dead (for some convoluted reason, like, John really shot a robot or, the family man died, BUT he became a greek fisherman). That'd be a retcon.

    Hopefully not. But out of continuity character devlopment is. Funny old world innit? Example: Josh Wright. Not a retcon. Though it completely sucks any love out of the end of Ellis's arch, we can pretend that it is "character development" that he went from being "totally fucked lsd left for dead sad sack" to "smooth occult gangster." For me, its just a crap attempt to bring a character who should have been left alone back into the constantine fold but it wasn't a retcon.

    I think the reason , Christian, you don't see any retcons in hellblazer is because you are king of the hellblazer no-prize! :)

    So, as my wife points out, you are conceding that nergal thing is a big "retcon" in hellblazer lore. As for the first, it fucking tears the balls out of the end of rake at the gates if you thought while reading it, "well, maybe if john wins this one the first will become a greek fisherman" but that is beside the point ... imagine if at the end of the kindly ones, we found out that morpheus had become a greek fisherman. You see my point? But. regardless, while Jenkins run "makes sense" that doesn't make the return of the first seem any less of a retcon...

    Oh yeah, and my wife brought up the whole demon blood thing. In her mind, everytime John fucks someone, he infects thier womb with evil--which is a fucked up idea inofitself-- but the demon blood should've gone to the demon constantine-- but in my mind thats more along the line of a continuity error.
  13. yep. i looked it up. you speak the truth.

    That's the def. of retcon I'm working with. Sooo.... Nergal looked real dead to me when he was torn apart on the steps of heaven. Not to get too geeky or shit, but my D&D lore tells me that when you kill a demon on the non-material plane, you've killed them for good. And that makes sense in the comic, also. I mean, if Nergal wasn't "D-E-A-D" why did he not come back and fuck over John in issue #13? I mean, e-mail JD and ask if he thought Nergal was dead... :) As for number two. No, you dont know what happens to anyone when they die, let alone the first of the fallen ... but.... He seemed pretty dead. I dont know if you were reading hellblazer at the time, but when he returned to the comic, for me, at least, it made me want to stop reading (the sadsack King Arthur storyline sealed that deal:( ). As for zed--- well... zeds dead, baby. zeds dead.
