Constantine - The Heckblazer #12

Recommended Posts

I figured I should start a topic, so we could end out this volumn in the life of someone who is named John Constantine, but seems to not be recognizable as the character named John Constantine who once starred in the pages of Hellblazer.

I'm not sure anyone else is even reading the book, at this point. I don't blame them.

I really have nothing to say about the issue. The art was horrible! Zatanna, Swamp Thing, and Deadman appeared at the end of the issue (Justice League Dark is back, baby! Oh yeah!)....but they were the most horribly drawn versions of said characters I've ever seen.

The author has still not learned to write in 12 issues of this book. The editor needed to help out more. Expository dialogue that goes on for page after page is wearing on the reader. It isn't necessary in a comic book story. This has happened in every issue of this series. The author feels the need at the end of the issue to begin taking up entire pages with meaningless, meandering dialogue. Crowding out the art can only be a good thing in this issue though.

I'm glad DC is killing this next month, although I don't even remember what the plot is about anymore.

Horrible book!

Are you hanging on for the final issue so you have the full run then, Christian?

Hell, yeah! My collection would be incomplete otherwise! Then, I'd have to start obsessing over one of my comic series missing an issue, and the anxiety would just be too great. I need that horrible, horrible fix every month...so, I can stick it in a bag and put it in a box, and never think about it again! Hey, I managed to gut my way through Chuck Austen's run on Uncanny X-Men. If I can survive that, for the sake of owning every issue of Uncanny X-Men, one more issue of this mess isn't going to kill me. I don't think. Now, if Simon Oliver's run goes in the same direction as this series went, I can't guarantee I'll survive, but I'll keep fighting for that complete collection.

I told everyone that the new52 constantine was better than this and that was a bit lacking...I wantedto beliebve I was wrong but to my horror...I was right.Also...oh my god,the artist! and what have they done to my beautiful zatanna?! and why is she wearing that terrible outfit from JLD ?
