Thee Comic Column #111: The Real John Constantine

Screen Shot 2014-12-04 at 12.30.20 AMHoly cow. Now this my friends, this is John Constantine. I mean, if you can hold in your mind’s eye the *eck* movie version from 2005, add to it the current NBC version and then watch this short made with a super small budget and barely any effects at all, well, I think you’ll agree that this isn’t just John Constantine done right, this is John Constantine done probably as close to perfect as we’re ever going to get in our lifetime by a video production company.

I think it’s appropriate to dedicate an episode of TCC to Karen Berger, who until December 3rd of last year was the Executive Editor & Senior Vice President of DC Comic’s Vertigo imprint, when she announced she would be stepping down.

The Comic Column #14: Goodbye Hellblazer, Hello Constantine

I consider myself a huge fan of Alan Moore’s bad luck street mage John Constantine, and yet I’ve not read a current issue of the now twenty-four year old book in approximately six years. Admittedly that makes me the worst kind of fan – the kind that is always glad something’s there, but then derelict on supporting it. In light of recent news I carry this guilt heavy, and yet there was a time when I couldn’t have ever seen myself not continuing to obsessively read the adventures of John Constantine. Be that as it may I had a strange parting of ways with the book – really no fault of its own – and though I’ve always retained a wikipedia-curiosity about its continued continuity, I really feel as though I absorbed Hellblazer and then put it down.
