IT’S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE! Rand is back to share his fond memories of decades of comic collecting and reading in this month’s Random Access Memory. Author’s Note: Random Access Memory is me looking back at the specific comics that shaped my life. Each month I go back in time – in five year intervals – to examine key comics that came out those months. (The idea is that after five years of monthly columns, I will have covered an entire lifetime – in this case, fifty years – of reading comics.) I also list all the comics I read that
Author’s Note: Random Access Memory is me looking back at the specific comics that shaped my life. Each month I go back in time – in five year intervals – to examine key comics that came out those months. (The idea is that after five years of monthly columns, I will have covered an entire lifetime – in this case, fifty years – of reading comics.) Starting this month I will also list all the comics I read that particular month. This will afford readers the opportunity to chastise me for not reading specific comics, and/or laugh at the horrible,
John Constantine is back in the title that launched the character . He’s back in London, driving around with Chas, and making more enemies than you can shake a cross at. An average day for good ‘ol Constantine. Do Simon Oliver and Moritat deliver on the return of one of the old Vertigo books to the new DCU? Your Major Spoilers review The Hellblazer: Rebirth #1 has the answers.
Yesterday at the Vertigo panel, it was announced that John Constantine is getting married. In all actuality, the question whether Constantine would indeed be getting married is still up in the air – he might, he might not. It all depends on what happens to Epiphany Greaves who finds herself in 1979 London, thanks to Shade, the Changing Man. The story will be written by Peter Milligan, and will arrive in stores in October. Just like a panel to tease, tease, tease, promote, promote, promote. Almost like someone worked in radio back in the ‘70s. via CBR
Today’s magic themed entry into the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day, yields this Zatara piece by Chapman Baritone (if that is indeed his real name).
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! And Rodrigo says It’s time to get things started… (Why won’t you get things started?) on the most sensational, inspirationational, spoiletational, majorational… [podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/majorspoilers/majorspoilers_84.mp3[/podcast] Direct Download Subscribe via iTunes RSS Feed Podcast Alley Show Notes after the Jump!
When Hellblazer arrives in stores on December 17th, it will hit two milestones.Â First the title hits the magic issue #250, which in itself is a great achievement, but the second is a little bit more important as it marks the longest running series for Vertigo. To celebrate the company is giving readers a five for one deal. If the idea of a holiday issue of HELLBLAZER strikes you as irreverent and a little perverse, well, thatâ€™s exactly why it works so well. Here, the holiday season of everyoneâ€™s favorite chain smoking, magical con-man, John Constantine, is disrupted by the
The azure bug is out of a home!Â And soâ€™s the giant squid!Â And soâ€™s the Rat-man!Â For a change of pace, Batman fights the Jokerâ€¦Â Kirk gets his ride pimpedâ€¦Â Constantine gets his groove backâ€¦Â And Rodrigo ends up sword-fighting his way past the palace guard and riding out of town in style, only to end up huddling in an inn while a reality storm passes overhead.
