Muscular John?

Recommended Posts

damn...makes it look like he was her bitch...

 

which means he was likely both her and nick's bitch...okay,well...???

 

[i kid...or not.my queer senses tells me this was true,but don't feed the troll]

 

ANYWAY.This is a no.Johnny's appeal was always that he looked like shit half the time.Sleep lines,stress marks,a tacky ass coat.Really,the only exercise he gets is everytime his arm goes up when he takes a drag off a cigarette.Really,he's skinny enough for Zatanna to be able to smack him around like he's her bitch without the magick (her combat skills pawn his; she could probably actually do this).Hell,with his smoking,I'm surprised he can run (demon blood).I always hated the muscular,idealized look.at john is suppose to be anti-idealized...plus when the hell did he get this tan?he's a brit for cryin' out loud and I know if he spent all his time in london/new york,he wouldn't be this color.

 

Okay,I'm reachin' but I always thought this guy was some other bloke named John Constantine.that's how I feel about nu52 john

The Revenge of the Higgins!Constantine

 

You know, I was looking at some of the John Higgins pages yesterday.

They are much better suited to Hellblazer/Constantine than the period from Camuncoli to the 2nd year of Constantine.

 

It bemuses me how many people get excited by Constantine meeting superheroes, so I read some of these crossover books that the kids have nowadays and they are utter shite.

What's this from?

 

Honestly, I think a lot of comics artists don't have much practice drawing non-heroic physiques.

That art is from Justice League Dark? I don't remember John looking muscular in that book.

 

Yeah, it's funny that the high part of that book was Peter Milligan, the guy who was ruining Hellblazer. It still wasn't great, but it read like an actual horror comic.

Then, we came to the zero issue which shall never be talked about again....

J.M. DeMatteis, at the end, had a few good issues. Still nothing worth hunting down if you missed it.

The book was pretty much all forgettable, with some really, really bad comics in the middle...sadly, those horrible issues were written by Jeff Lemire, who should not be writing such awful comics.

Ikr. Even from the Search for Swamp Thing previews from early on was a glaring red flag that the DCU of the last 13 years isnt a good environment for our boy as as DiDio and co. pigheadly thinks. If I had my way, I'd switch John out and have Ragman be part of JL: Narf. These past four years of forcing a misconception onto everyone whether its the sanitized origin to having ot contaminate 250 issue history to justify why him in the said tainted universe is better has been one big epic fail after the next.

 

Even the CW crossovers tweets and Guggenheim trolling about John being an expert on the Lazarus Pits irk me to no end.
