The best (or least worst) John

Recommended Posts

I've not been reading Hellblazer for awhile, save for a few quick peaks. Then add what I've read here. I don't like what I hear. Is Constantine being written any better in Justice League Dark? Or is it just a lesser of two evils.

 

Hopefully Lemire do well.....right??

Better in JLD by virtue of having to share the limelight and also being drawn better.

And by less need for "shock" stories.

 

Otherwise same level of badness.

 

Or Milliganity as I now like to call it.

No, I think Milligan had the all clear after his last medical.

heh

What Adrian said. John is written better because there's less of John to get on your nerves. He doesn't usually do a great deal in JLD. He's pretty much always written out-of-character when he does show up though.

The plots aren't much better...you just don't have to deal with married John and his gangter in-law versus the First every month.

We'll see where Lemire takes it.

 

EDIT:Actually, after thinking about it, the plots of JLD just don't leave much of a mark on me, while the plots of HB just make me feel insulkted* that this is the same book that Jamie Delano wrote.

And, issue #291 is going to give me nightmares for a while, it was so bad.

So, I guess JLD does look better in light of modern-day Hellblazer.

That's so sad.

 

*I noticed this typo, but have decided that "insulkted" is a good neologism way to describe my feelings after what HB has done to me in recent months.

ha!ha!

 

So it is as I thought. Any bitchin' & moanin' I read on from all of you about Hellblazer is far more entertaining than the book itself.

 

And...wait for Lemire. If that doesn't work, and I need a fix, there are always back issues.
