Chantinelle's sigil

Recommended Posts

This has been bugging me for a while. So during Garth Ennis' run on Hellblazer, we saw John carve a masking sigil into Chantinelle's soul to protect her from demonic pursuit. The catch is that she could never return to hell as the sigil would destroy her. However, during Paul Jenkin's run on Hellblazer, specifically on Difficult Beginnings, John finds Chantinelle hiding in hell. Was this ever explained by the writers?

Chantinelle mentions at the end of Rake at the Gates of Hell that, due to the First of the Fallen being taken out of the equation, all of the rules of Hell were being rewritten, which is how she's able to cure John's lung cancer that the FotF had given back to him.  I always just assumed that's how she was able to return to Hell, but it was never explicitly stated.

What he said.

I think it's probably something that an editor should have spotted and pointed out, but didn't. 

Welcome aboard, btw.
