While there are many pieces of cool jewelry worn by heroes of the world, this week’s poll of the week wants to know which of the following you would prefer to wear.

John Constantine is dying. As a sorcerer literally haunted by the demons of his past, John is no stranger to mystic bedevilment or supernatural horror. But it’s his chain smoking that ultimately brings death to Constantine’s front door. John Constantine has lung cancer. Though condemned to hell, Constantine continues to laugh in the face of this all-too-serious world. Despite it preternatural overtones, this story is actually a down-to-earth tale about life, death, and the little details in between.

    I chose the GL ring because i figured this is a no strings attached deal. I wasn’t drafted into the responsiblity of either rings organizations. That being said, I’m sure learning to use the Will Power needed to power the ring would be entertaining.

    Never read Hellblazer but i thought the movie was good for what it was. It’s not many peoples favorite movie but it does tell a story that I was unfamiliar with in an entertaining light.

    Hearing about how Hellblazer is a comic that defined a lot of what Mathew is got me thinking about a my favorite book in my collection. (This sentence wasn’t intended to follow linear thought but rather the way my brain works.) I’m curious, have either of you read Witchblade: Obakemono? And if so, what did you think?

    And just so that you know, Witchblade: Obakemono is NOT the anime style witchblade with the anti-gravity breasts. It’s a story of a woman seeking revenge for the murder of her husband in fuedal Asia with art done by Billy Tan.

    Great podcast, miss Rodrigo he may not say much but he says it well.

    Thank you, I thought something was wrong with me for not liking the current run of Dr. Who, the “A time of of angels” episode was a crappy version of “Silence in the library” and it’s still one of the better ones so far…

      All reviews are subjective, and mileage may vary. I agree with you, in this case, but Dexter and I have been at odds on a number of his reviews in the past. Just remember, everybody comes at life from their own perspectives and blah blah blah and chalk it up to difference of opinions. Heck, Stephen and I have known each other for decades, and we still argue vehemently about certain parts of our beloved hobby…

        … For example: Mathew LOOOOOVES Batman because he’s just a normal guy and no one else agrees with that. /joke

          When Matthew kills you, can I have your stuff?

    One other thing about Hellblazer that you guys didn’t mention. No idea if they’ve tossed this as an aspect of Constantine (haven’t read the book since Ennis left), but one of the interesting things about the character used to be that he aged in real time. His 40th birthday in a 1993 issue was 5 years after his 35th in 1988.
