I’ve been readin’ comics for a very long time. Titles have come and gone, characters and universes swirling down the drain month after month, but Hellblazer has remained. Since The Reagan Administration, I’ve been picking up every issue of this book (even the really awful ones) and I find the concept of a world without Hellblazer to be one that’s somehow a sadder place. Still, time is an illusion, so they say, and lunchtime doubly so, and there’s no reason to dilly-dally any longer. The end of one of my personal eras of comics is here, and your Major Spoilers review awaits!

Despite common, non-comic reader misconception, comics are more than just underwear perverts boxing with villains. Exhibit A is this title: Fables, which is near the top of my list of comics to recommend to comic book newbs.

Broaden your mind, after the jump.
The final issue of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s neo-noir dystopian tale of kidnapping, reality TV and LOLspeak has hit the stands. Major Spoilers reviews the wrap-up.
Talented creators from DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint will be in attendance at this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con.

With his Fables series so popular that two TV networks ripped it off, writer Bill Willingham found that there was enough demand to launch a spin-off series exploring other corners of his fictional universe. His first six-issue arc probes the pre-Disney origins of Sleeping Beauty, who is in a love triangle with Ali Baba and the Snow Queen, while a tiny, naked, blue man watches. Can a comic book really live up to that set-up?
Probably one of the best epic-level comics of all time, Sandman has captured the hearts and imaginations of thousands. The Niel Gaiman series ended some time ago, but now the scribe is coming back to tell more tales set in the Sandman universe.
