20. John Constantine, Hellblazer

Oi, piss off.

Hellblazer # 300 comes out today in comic shops everywhere and concludes the longest running Vertigo comic and – on a technicality – DC comic. I’ve already said my piece on the subject of John Constantine and DC’s cancelling of his book in favor of a New 52’d version.

Since I get my comics via mail order now, It’ll still be a few days (weeks?) before I get issue 300. I still haven’t gotten # 299. But they will be at the top of my to-read pile. I’m sad that John is going away, but I do want to see how his story wraps up and where Good Peter Milligan takes this tale. I’m sure it’ll be disappointing, because most endings are, especially when you’ve lived with this thing and invested so much into it for so many years.

In the end, though, sometimes you just gotta light a cigarette, order a gin and tonic, give the devil the finger, and live life.


I’m still here.
