John Constantine is a man who has literally been to hell and back in the Warner Bros. Pictures film Constantine, a supernatural thriller based on the long-running hit DC Comics/VERTIGO HELLBLAZER graphic novels. When Constantine teams up with skeptical policewoman Angela Dodson to solve the mysterious suicide of her twin sister, their investigation takes them through the world of demons and angels that exists just beneath the landscape of contemporary Los Angeles. Caught in a catastrophic series of otherworldly events, the two become inextricably involved and seek to find their own peace at whatever cost.

A second collection celebrating the release of the Warner Bros. Pictures film Constantine, in theaters in February! CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER COLLECTION collects the official 64-page VERTIGO adaptation of the film along with three classic issues of JOHN CONSTANTINE: HELLBLAZER. Included are issue #11, which kicked off VERTIGO's longest-running series and set the tone for the character; #27, which brought SANDMAN creator Neil Gaiman and his longtime artistic collaborator Dave McKean to the title with a haunting story of fear and loneliness; and #41, which opens the "Dangerous Habits" storyline with Constantine discovering that he has lung cancer in "The Beginning of the End."

I like Palmiotti. I can say that much about the comic adaptation...maybe I'll find it used somewhere eventually.

WHAT?! WHY?! It has three disjointed issues of the series, one of them is part of a larger story-line, two of them is collected in a better TPB.

Plus a movie adaptation written by Steven Seagal. The guy can't even act, what made Vertigo think he could write?!

Oh....I've just been informed that it's written by Steven T. Seagle....

what a fucking hack! :lol:

No, if you like it and want to buy it, go ahead.

 

Being serious:

I think I'd buy the movie adaptation if it was written and drawn by Rob Liefield. That would be worth the fucking money to laugh at!

What a better combination, eh?!

For MATURE readers? And the movie will become PG13?

Somethings smells fishy.

It includes issues from the comic series which feature such R-rated scenes as a demonic fear elemental in the form of a huge translucent dog raping a 14 year old boy. Graphically. On camera.

 

Akhira, drop me a PM and I'll sort you out a copy of the Dangerous Habits trade, it'll do you more good than the movie adaptation yoke.

And covering him with demonic dog cum, too. Paedo-bestial bukkake!

 

Except that one's in the Rare Cuts, isn't it? The solicit info might say #11, but it describes it as the issue which "kicked off VERTIGO's longest-running series and set the tone for the character" - which would suggest that it's a typo and they're actually putting ish 1 in there instead.

 

Still, you do get people shrivelling away to dry husks and flies bursting out of a child's body (and ripping him to shreds in the process).

John-Who was the 14-year old boy that got raped? I don't remember that part....

Wasn't that Astra that got raped by the dog in that scene?

 

Anyway. Well, there ya go! There's the fucking genius of Azzarello's run! We all missed it! Azzarello was doing a deconstructionist homage to what has gone before in the "Hellblazer" comic! Fucking genius!

 

Yes, it was nice of them to stick a movie adaptation for a PG-13 film in the Vertigo line. Even better to stick it in a Trade with 3 other Mature Readers H.B. comics.

I think it'd be quite a shell-shock for readers to go from movie to comic....

Nah, it was Ben Cox, the stuttery mother's boy who got killed during the American Gothic arc of Swamp Thing.

personal experience, i hope?

Doubt it. That would imply he's something other than middle-class America with a lick of talent trying to portray things he doesn't understand. And believe me, Azzarello had no fucking idea of reality. A town that was funded by a porn site indeed.

His video collection ?

 

I quite like the image of Keanu used on that cover but he should really have a cigarette perched between his pretty lips. The images around it are a little naff though, looks like a load of cat-men.
