Jamie Delano, Novelist

I really like Jamie Delano's writing. From Captain Britain to John Constantne: Hellblazer to Animal Man to Outlaw Nation to 2020 Visions to Crossed Badlands to Necropolis to Rawbone, he's a comic book writer whose work I have been very happy to follow. It's just, he's not writing comics at the moment. He's a novelist and a […]

Hellblazer, Starfire And We Are Robin Go To Second Prints

Constantine Was… A Post 9-11 Punk Rocker Now?

John Constantine, when introduced into the DC Universe, was a rare creature. One who aged in real time. Since his introduction in the early eighties, he went on to get old. To celebrate his birthdays. And to marry someone far too young. His time on this earth was marked, including his time as a punk […]

John Constantine Loses The Trenchcoat

It's come to define the character. John Constantine, wide boy occultist, smoking a cigarette, lighting up the creases of his trenchcoat. But not any more. DC have taken away his years, taken away the politics, taken away his bisexuality and now they have come for his coat. From a press jolly between DC and their […]

Dan DiDio Just Answered My Questions On Prez, Doomed, Mystic U And Section 8

So I write this recently. About how there were four books from the June mini-relaunch that I was really excited about, but seemed not to be lighting the fanbase on fire. Prez, Doomed, Mystic U and Section 8. So, since I was watching the InStore Comic Convention Kickoff, and Dan DiDio was on the screen, […]

Karen Berger Says That He's 'Not The Real Constantine'.

We haven't heard too much from Karen Berger since she left DC Comics, where she had worked for decades, running the Vertigo imprint and forming it in her own image. And she had been at the birth of John Constantine in Swamp Thing. So when Slate published an article about the state of the character […]

First Look At Zed In Constantine And Preview For Trust

After the pilot was made for Constantine, some changes were made that included replacing the character of Liv (Lucy Griffiths) with a character from the comics Zed (Angélica Celaya) who is John Constantine's former lover.
