I'm catching up on the Hellblazer series. I read Jamie Delano's run a few years ago now and it's not fresh at all in my memory but I do remember enjoying it. I've started this time with the Garth Ennis run and have now reached the first couple of Mike Carey issues.
Leaving Delano aside for a moment I've enjoyed Ennis the most. I had some problems with Paul Jenkins run and I really didn't like Azzarello's. Ellis run was short and sweet.
The problem I had with Jenkins was the meandering wordy prose and the lack of depth to secondary characters. I found I was bored towards the end of his run.
Azzarello is very good at plot but I really disliked his John Constantine. Really disliked. His writing reminds me of some of those over the top 80's movie directors. Like his stories might be written next to a bowl of coke and porn running on cable 24/7
I've liked the fisrt 2 issue effort from Carey I've read.
So guys.....how do you rate the HB writers?
