… in other words, this is pretty much the worst news ever.
Ok, so John’s going to get his own ongoing series in the DC’s New 52, but this is pretty much what I said I was worried about when the New 52 and Justice League Dark was announced in the first place. There is just no way that this will be the same character. I mean, c’mon… I hardly think magical orgasms and the like will fit in with DC’s mainstream lines.
Sigh. So depressed about this.
From the release:
HELLBLAZER, Vertigo’s longest-running series which currently headlines John Constantine, will end with issue #300 in February. John Constantine has escaped, cheated, narrowly avoided and even reversed death on multiple occasions. Now, in the conclusion of “Death and Cigarettes,” longtime writer Peter Milligan and artists Giuseppe Camuncoli and Stefano Landini will test whether he’s got one more second chance in him, giving him the bloody best sendoff he deserves.
