The Holy One of Israel
He should've just stayed in his own line of comics.
To be fair though, the British Invasion and DC really investing and giving work to really subversive writers/artists, I mean when you take a look at DC, before even the books that would start the Vertigo imprint with stuff like Piranha Press lead to DC having one of the most interesting stables of writers and artists meant that you had some really unique stories that were jewels in a sea of mediocrity that was the "90's" era of comics and the fact that the industry was in a much healthier spot meant that you could lift up vertigo books etc. It's more a problem of trying to do a book like this today when both the artists and writers are poorly suited to it and the editors could not give two shits rather than proximity of Superman,Jon Consteen of Heckblazer in the main stream DC is very meh.
That's another big problem, it's crazy to me that The Books of Magic lasted longer than Hellblazer this time around.that's a bit hard to do when they keep fucking cancelling it.
The Owlman origin is alright seeing as the writer had only 3 pages to work with. Also Apparently Emerald Knights had a predecessor (most likely earth 3 Hal Jordan) who encountered Owlman which ended with him losing his power battery and most likely dying.View attachment 2068765
Again, pretty good. Although, I thought Owlman’s origin was a bit...lacking. Especially compared to Ultraman’s origin. I liked the idea of him being a corrupted vigilante instead of an outright villain and I liked how he has scars on his eyes because of an Owl attack.
meh, Critical Mass is one of my favorite arcs. Him divvying up his soul as to avoid damnation is up there with his gambit in Dangerous Habits for me.
i like how you didn't even pick a good example of "proper" constantine either, you picked the shit golem.

I really don't understand why they cancelled the most recent hellblazer run after like 13 issues. It was getting really fun and so far hadn't done most of the shit that the other recent runs had been doing. It felt a lot closer to classic Hellblazer than the modern new52 stuff. It's a damn shame tbh, I thought it had a lot of potential.That's another big problem, it's crazy to me that The Books of Magic lasted longer than Hellblazer this time around.

There was a interview he did with bleeding cool that leads withReally? I heard it was selling alright. Better than some other books that didn't get cancelled at least.
Is this even true? Could you really search for an audience like that in 90's? "at least a couple dozen" is at least 24 issues, thats at least 2 years of searching for audience and not really being profitable."My stupid, colossal fucking mistake was to assume I was still living in the 90's when comics got at least a couple dozen issues to flex their muscles and find their fullest audience before anyone even quibbled about profitability."
I agree its probably one of the better Bat books right now and it's great Red Hood stuff, also I think it's a stand alone story in its own continuity, Jason's mom was killed by the Joker in new 52 ircc like in Death in the Family.been reading the Batman Urban Legends shit. i don't know anything about Grifter so I can't really speak for the quality of his story, but this feels like some of the best Jason Todd stuff I've read in a long long time. unfortunate they're using his New 52 origin it seems, but it works for the story I suppose.
I assume it's the New 52 origin because Jason mentions "my mom died from a drug overdose" where as far as I know his mother died from a bomb overdose.
Considering some of the books they made in the 80's and 90's I don't doubt it, I can't imagine books like Namor or Aquaman would have sold well but their runs often spanned into the high 40 and 80's for the latter, and all the creative shifts like Byrne's art to Jae Lee's crazy run on Namor, which I recently had the pleasure of picking up recently and can't wait to read, or just replacing Aquaman with a different guy, him losing his hand or living in a flooded San Diego with locals residents being turned into water breathers etc all just to try to make it work.Is this even true?

And its not like Constantine is a new kid on the block, if it is not selling by issue 10 then maybe its not going to.
From what I read of that awful Lobdell run in #0 it looks like a Nu52 bomb death in Africathought she was killed by the Joker in that he orchestrated her drug overdose because he was trying to create a robin for batman just to take it away.
I don't doubt that it could be contradicted in other bat books or even the same one with the mess that was New 52
