    Default Anyone Getting Constantine?

    I Might if only because i currently read Justice league dark and it might tie into that
    although it depends on if it's just a watered down crappier version of hellblazer like fans are expecting or if it will be an actual good title in the dark line

    I wasn't thrilled with the cancellation of Hellblazer, but I'm going to give it a shot. Very short leash, though.

    Venditti seems to be a good writer though(most of his praise coming from X-O Manowar)

    Yeah, Venditti is an interesting choice. Not someone I'd associate with a book like HB, but this is Constantine, so some differences are to be expected. The one thing that all writers of John have said over the years is that they've found the character a great vehicle for telling very personal stories, so hopefully Venditti will both find that type of that story and be allowed to tell it (something that seems to be tougher with the new editorial direction of the New 52).

    I'll buy the hell out of it, yes.

    Let me agree that Venditti is a surprising, but not wrong, choice. His work tends to be character driven, and for all the mythology and mysticism, Constantine's Hellblazer stories have all been largely personal, largely small at their heart. So it makes a kind of sense.

    Still, I can think of a half dozen guys I'd have offered it to first. Paul Cornell and Si Spurrier, for two.

    So is Si Spurrier. I haven't seen either get an exclusive contract, and Cornell continues to write for DC under the Vertigo imprint.

    At first I wasn't going to, but I figure that was more of a knee jerk reaction to Hellblazer ending. I hope Venditti delivers, because I don't like Lemire's Constantine at all.

    I'm buying the book, but only because I buy all new 52 titles. So far I've enjoyed Justice League Dark (not so much the rotworld tie in stuff) so I hope the book is good and has a nice run. And if its good ill go back and pick up issues of hellblazer.

    this was to be expected though since swamp thing and animal man came back to the dc universe and Constantine needed a fresh start

    I probably won't be picking it up on day one, but if the reviews are good for the first few issues I'm interested in checking it out.
    Be a fan of the creators, not the characters.

    Animal Man has been on the DCU for years before the New 52.

    I will read the book because Constantine is a superhero again and not some really old anti hero running around in Vertigo.
