    November 9, 2012 3:40 am I wouldn't be nearly as angry and cut up about this if that JLD zero issue hadn't been such a bloody travesty. That issue was so far wide of the mark in terms of the Constantine character that it actually came across as an awful parody, of which there have been many, most of them arguably better than what was on offer in that issue. Equally sad for me is that this book ends on what has been my least favorite run. It's a shame that they didn't get Delano back for the last word on John, but then again they don't really seem to give two shites about ol' conjob.
    November 9, 2012 3:16 am For a character that was created for a Hulk story wolverine achieved marvelous things too. I don't think the whys and wherefores of a character's creation really have any baring on the inherent worth of that character or should be used as a reason why we should just be happy with what we got, not that that's what your saying but just to be clear. From my viewpoint what the dozens of talented creators where able to do in sculpting one of the most nuanced, interesting and richly storied characters in the history of comics does not more than make up for this cancellation, it actually makes it worse. I'm gutted.
    October 27, 2010 5:57 am Fans of Irving should definitely check out Necronauts, Charles Fort, Arthur Conan Doyle, HP lovecraft and Harry Houdini battling an occult Illuminati all rendered in some honestly amazing Black and White artwork by Frazier.

    Who's up for another round of the Mark Millar drinking game, everytime Mark says "You Know", take a shot and I'll see you all in casualty.

    The Unwritten or Secret Warriors.

    September 3, 2010 12:59 am Michael Keaton's still got it.
    August 18, 2010 3:10 am Has Diggle been screwed a little by Marvel? His first Thunderbolts issues were great, then the team was taken by bendis and he was given the dregs and now Shadowland, was it even his idea? I just can't help but get the feeling he seems to be just writing a mandated plot outline, he's not even the sole writer on the book anymore. With the news that he has a vertigo crime book coming out does that mean he hasnt renewed his marvel exclusive contract. The last few daredevil issues just seem very unlike Diggle, more like a guy spinning his wheels until his shift is done. A shadow of the man who had just come of a top class Hellblazer run and those promising early TBolts issues.

    Really looking forward to see how Darwyn handles the heist heavy action of the Oufit, which arguably lends itself even better to a Cooke style comic adaption than the hunter did.

    August 17, 2010 2:18 am @ Sam Morgan Robocop was actually intended to be Judge Dredd the movie but there was a problem with the film rights to the character so eventually the producers just decided to change various details in the script and so it became Robocop. I'm always surprised that comics fans in the US seem to have little time for or knowledge of Dredd and 2000ad in general. A lot of the guys that are heralded as leaders in the genre at the moment cut there teeth on 2000ad, that alone should bring the Uk comics to American comic fans attention. That it doesn't baffles me.
