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.

But it’s his chain smoking that ultimately brings death to Constantine’s front door. John Constantine has lung cancer.

Or – “Sir, I Protest! I Am NOT A Merry Man!!!” Once again, we’ve come to the situation where Stately Spoilers Manor contains far more comics than there are days to review ’em, leading once again unto the Final Frontier… NUQNEH – NOOKNEHH! Phasers on summarize!
The Wheel of Morality will turn,turn,turn, and we’ll think of something funny to say about wherever it stops… theoretically, anyway. Johnny’s got his gun, and he’s lookin’ for Keanu. Bulletproof girls still like to play headgames. Plus: Is it #1 or #401? The Lion, the Witch, and the pyramids at Giza!
