    Vertigo - where's the ledge? Has anyone seen the ledge?

    : P I just can't imagine this going well.

    First time I head about this and yet I already dread reading it.

    That is a loss indeed. Sadly I don't think many people on the other side of the pond will notice and that's even sadder, in a way.

    Are you a Milligan or a Milligant?

    Cheeky but true.

    Constantine and Batman in Batman: Damned - Starting This September

    Eh I still think Seeley did a better jab in his slightly lackluster run than Azzarello in his entire American shitfest.

    Constantine and Batman in Batman: Damned - Starting This September

    Sorry but fuck off with this DC. Azzarello's Hellblazer run was one of the worst and most un-Hellblazer run in the entire series' history and you decide to give him another miniseries where his inacurrate Hellblazer-without the Hell or the blazing is going to get exposure with unfamiliar readers due to the Batman connection ? Also this line " and with John Constantine soon to be followed by other masters of the occult - Zatanna, Etrigan, Deadman - even Batman is heading into uncharted territory. Luckily " Does this mean John is just gonna be in the one issue or whatever and then have at least three other characters besides Batman to focus on ?

    The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Okay, finished the stupid Bardo Score thing. Yet another damp squib I feel, where Seeley just starts setting things up but then doesn't have much actual substance so everything gets undone almost immediately. The ease with which the bad guy was taken down and his rather shallow plan were very disappointing to say the least. Edit: welp did not realise this had already ended. Honestly I would not mind if this continued if they: A got some quality writers and B made it for mature readers again. Cause I fee a lot of this writting attitude is down to that mentality of having to be appropriate. The Good Old Days wasn't perfect but well, it was the only storyline in this entire run that both felt like a Hellblazer story and that also didn't feel like stuff just ended without much happening. It's kinda sad in that respect, really. 300 issues the original's lasted and since then they can't break 30 no matter what they do.

    Finished with the whole dwarf thing. That was kinda abrupt and unsatisfying but I guess it at least had some ending ? Still a waste of potential.

    I'd have at least liked to have gotten some resolution to literally any of this.

    I just got there. 12 issues of blathering on about Abby Arcane and she never even shows up. 10 issues in they suddenly bring up King Solomon and some sort of machine and that never gets explained. Six issues devoted to finding a damn book to find the way to a city we never get to see. If they had to boot Oliver off the book, couldn't the next guy at least try and wrap that up instead of making the previous 12 issues a complete and utter waste and just starting off something else ?

    The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    So I started reading this newest series just so I could complain along with you guys : P First of all, just finished issue 10 and the damned Djin crap is still going. Worse, the first 6 issues were a wasteland of repeated scenes and absolutely nothing happening, the main villain is only starting to look like less of a ponce around issue 9, what little happened in issues 7 and 8 was rather drawn out and boring and it's not until issue 9 that we got any scene that I'd even classify as Hellblazer-like, what with the angel dismemberment scene. Also this is shaping up to at best be a shitty rip off of Fear Machine. Also alsor eally glad Philip Tan got the boot as the artist after two issues. His wanna be manga art style is so shit it looks like something farted out by Nick Simmons. Yes that one.

    Just Got into Hellblazer...

    What year did this "final showdown" take place exactly ? : P Also, has Bendis just gone completely to shit ? I've not read a ton of his stuff but I kept hearing really positive things about him around the mid 2000's.
