    VP of marketing at DC answers why they cant be two JC comics at once. As some of you guys have wondered in this thread. Funny too how aggressive he is against the interviewer when he asks if other Vertigo characters will go back to DCU like they didnt just do the same to Constantine....

    http://www.newsarama.com/comics/dc-v...-dc-sales.html


    Nrama: I'd be remiss not to mention something that a lot of people are talking about right now, and that's the end of Hellblazer. Obviously, Hellblazer and Justice League Dark co-existed for 14 months now. From a sales perspective can you give readers insight into why such a long-running title is being cancelled outright as opposed to say alternatively, Dark, Hellblazer and a Constantine title co-existing if the market would support them?

    Cunningham: Well, I don't think it's quite rational to assume that the sales level of a current book would maintain if you created a second title in a different series of book. It would be great in the abstract if you could say, "Well, we can maintain a book here at this level while launching another one." But I don't think that's realistic in any way.

    Nrama: So the key, from a sales standpoint, then, was "one at a time." And the more enticing one, for sales, would be in the DCU?

    Cunningham: I think we've been very pleased with the reaction both critically and from fans and sales-wise with how we've used John Constantine in the DCU. And that series, as venerable as it was, has played a long time in Vertigo. And when you see more fertile, creative ground, you tend to move toward it.

    Nrama: Is it accurate this perception that most of the "Dark" characters and concepts are on a one-way road back to the former DCU? That's what people are perceiving? Do you think that's accurate, that you're "moving" them over and that they're no longer Vertigo characters?

    Cunningham: No, I think that people are looking at one-off decisions that are made creatively and trying to provide an overarching rubric that doesn't exist to it, which is why a lot of that delves into what I would call speculative fiction almost.

    No way in hell is the New 52 a "more creative, fertile ground."

    Dude is pretty twisted and usually didnt have friends who survived him. Many grow old without ever marrying without being a con man prick like JC.

    Nothing wrong with if it worked storywise, im just saying it sounds very predictable because everything else has been with Hellblazer.

    Yeah, that's the JL Dark annual, the only thing I picked up to see how Constantine would be in the NuDCU.
    It's pretty laughably bad in terms of a story, and is really just a straight super-hero book with magic guys, no matter how they want to spin it. Pretty boring and bland.
    The Constantine in the story is not a character I recognize.
    RIP, John.

    Good lord...can't wait to find out the context to that.

    Come to think of it, I'm so glad Mark Millar never wrote Hellblazer.

    It's a joke. As in, "wow, what complete blandness and uncreativity."

    Constantine seems to be Nick Fury leading his Avengers into battle.

    The 0 number was a joke with the apprenticeship and instead of manipulating from the sides, he is in the thick of it.

    Yeah, I dropped JLD after 3 or so issues. I was willing to give it another shot when Lemire took over. I nothing but the utmost respect for Lemire. So I grabbed #0 and it was just so....meh. Meh x 1000. Meh to the power of meh.

    Wow, complete tonal difference. Though I'm really not interested in finding out what is going on in it. Doesn't look like my kind thing though.
