    I didn't say it was a long arc...

    I thought Willoughby Kipling was pre-vertigo.

    Shows how much you can rely on Wikipedia to fact-check yourself...
    The way I originally heard it was that Morrison wanted to use Constantine but for whatever reason didn't get permission from editorial.
    Maybe because they wanted to keep books like Hellblazer and Sandman seperate from the main DCU which Doom Patrol was very much a part of.

    Yes, because Bendis has all of the characters he writes say that.
    Even Luke Cage.

    If Hellblazer is ending, is it possible that they want Constantine completely in the New 52? Maybe he'll get a new solo title in the Dark line.

    You must punch your face a lot with that overreaction, seriously. Also while i really love Milligan's run (and i really do), i hope he wraps everything up soon so we can get new creative team. Now that's a better question, who would you like to succeed Milligan/Camuncoli/Landini/Bisley.

    I love you, Desaad, as the epitome of smart posters around this joint, but I will still break you if this turns out to be true. At least give it to Gillen.
