|Nick||So what part of the comic was adapted into a shitty movie?|

|the Platinum Poppy||It was great when Ennis first took over the book and gave him lung cancer. That's pretty unexptected for a comic book character.|

I really like hellblazer, its one of those comics that feel graphic novellish.
it seems though that his trick of summoning a bigger more bad ass demon seems to be his cureall.
though i do like how it usually ends up with some nice action sequences.

|the Platinum Poppy||Yep, that one was really good. But I think that this book has seriously gone downhill since. It still shines time to time, but it has one big major problem, which is this: It has happened SO OFTEN by now that some city or town is possessed by evil forces, everyone there go on a kill/maim/raping spree and mass death ensues, that it's not even near shocking any longer. Rather you find yourself thinking something like "oh here we go again...". I don't like either that many writers nowaday portrays John as if he simply shook off lots of the bad stuff that happened to him. There was even a whole issue of the book dedicated to showing how he exorcised ("killed", because they had taken on physical form) a bunch of bad old memories. I don't know, I find it hard to care about that character any longer, the book has simply gone on for too long. But once it was really, really good.|

My first experiences with Constantine were Alan Moores' Swap Thing stories. After that I started to scoop up all the stories Garth Ennis wrote. So for years I would read volumes all containing at least a slight mention of the Newcastle incident, without having a clue as to what went down. And I have to agree, after finally reading this issue, some of Constantines flaws make a lot more sense.
(And I still think the first two issues of the series were brilliant.)
