    lol, I have no idea what's happening there either. I just googled Hellblazer magic. (I've probably read that issue though)

    This news is so weak.

    So...you're saying meh = 100?

    His math seems questionable. Any math experts around here?

    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.
    DC Translation - We have no real reason why we can't keep Hellblazer going and are really pathetic pieces of shit to not give an answer.

    He wrote him quite a bit in Swamp Thing, and did a very nice job of it.

    FUCK IT ALL!
    I was just finishing the whole series before the news and I did the stupid thing and finished it after the announcement. Now I just have the last issues, some of the minis and OGNs of the real Constantine left.
    Up yours, DC!

    But tell us how you REALLY feel, Billy.



    I agree, though, this sucks.

    Grant Morrison never had an extended run in Hellblazer...

    Neither did Alan Grant (Who apparently knows first hand what it's like to be an aging jerk with a heart of gold)

    Ian Rankin had been talking about a Hellblazer Graphic Novels for years. He only got to make one.


    Oh well....
    ...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?

    The last numbers of the original swamp thing run were from Millar (probably some morrison with it) and was quite ok when Hellblazer fucked over swamp thing.

    Yeah but imagine the more recent Millar doing an actual Hellblazer run?

    I need to get around to his Swamp Thing though.

    Apparently he doesn't like Constantine.

    Don't know why Morrison was brought up when Destro777 was talking about his Batman Inc. run but whatever.
    I'm indifferent with the guy. His John was kind of a fool in the two issues that he wrote and so was his clone of John (Willoughby Kipling) in his Doom Patrol so I'm glad that he didn't write him for that long :p
