Emphasis on the regret, eh?

I don't even remember the plot of Chas:The Knowledge. Maybe the story was fine, I was thinking about the portrayal of John Constantine. Wherein, Oliver, for some god awful reason, decided that John Constantine would work as a stand-in for Charlie Sheen. That's the real fear of Oliver taking over a John Constantine comic. Not if he can write a good story, Oliver is capable of that, but to make sure he doesn't write such a totally wrong depiction of John Constantine's character, ever again.

A 16 year old Oliver, based on Wikipedia.

 

Hilariously, there's three pages with discussion about immigration and George W. Bush before the comic gets a mention. Sign of the times, eh?

Everyone seemed to lose faith in the series by the third issue.

This is really weird

Strictly speaking it should be "cigarettes and cheap regrets":

(The original version of this was by The Birthday Party, before they became the Birthday Party, and has Nick Cave on it, but I prefer Roland S Howard's take on it...)

Don't remember if there was an image on the article I pulled it from, but I think that the cover of John smoking from the WonderCon panel will probably be the cover for the solicit.

Here's the solicit as well:

Well, if time passed in real-time, Mercury would be a grown woman. In fact, she'd be over 40 years old today, if it was in real-time.
