Hell blazes

I’m still sorting through my comics collection, and last night I pulled out of the bag a complete run of Hellblazer, the John Constantine comic, issues 2-44 (I have lots of other issues too, this was just what was on the shelf when the original shelf went into a box). There’s the faint whiff of mildew to these, rahter than the more appropriate brimestone.
I never got around to getting issue 1, regretably, so this is a good occassion to link to the free pdf of Hellblazer #1 available at the DC comics website. You can clearly see that back then, Constantine was still very clearly “the character that looks like Sting”. [ via LinkmachineGo ]
