Constantine : The Book

Recommended Posts

I just might be foolish enough to actually buy this cheap moive novelization and knock it off in an afternoon. It'll be the closest I'll have to a John Constantne prose novel for the time being.

yeah, why buy the comics, when you can get the novelisation? Or how about a book-on-tape version of the novelisation?

Ho-Ho-Ho.

 

  It'll be the closest I'll have to a John Constantne prose novel for the time being.

 

"Also acquired three books in a supernatural thriller series provisionally titled Castor, by Mike Carey, the acclaimed writer of Lucifer and Hellblazer, amongst others." Ooh. Keep talking... "They will feature a freelance exorcist by the name of Felix Castor, and if you think a male, British version of (Orbit's tremendously successful authors such as) Laurell K. Hamilton, Kelley Armstrong, Tanya Huff or Charlaine Harris you won't be far wrong.

 

"The first book is scheduled for early '06, but readers wanting to get an idea of what to expect should check out Lucifer and Hellblazer to whet their appetites (there, that should get me a pint from the author…)."

 

when is it set to come out?

 

February 1st according to Amazon.

well, you know, then William Gibson could do a positive review of the Book-on-tape, since Mr. Reeeves was in his Johnny Mnemonic, right? ;)
