Hellblazer is ending at issue 300, only to be relaunched

The longest running series ever published under the Vertigo imprint is coming to an end with the 300th issue, but also being restarted per the custom of trying for short-term sales based on premiere issues:
...Constantine, a somewhat sorcerer more at home fighting demons than socializing with people, won't be fading away with the title's end that is being written by longtime writer Peter Milligan and illustrated by artists Giuseppe Camuncoli and Stefano Landini. Instead, the ending is a beginning of sorts for the character.

That's because writer Robert Venditti, a best-selling author whose works include "The Homeland Directive," will launch "Constantine" with artist Renato Guedes, a new series from DC Comics focusing on the detective's adventures in the relaunched DC universe.

Fans of Constantine will still see elements of the man they've come to know since "Hellblazer" began in 1988, Venditti said, but there will be changes along with the familiar aspects, too.

"He's going to be the same age that he is in Justice League Dark and the same character that people know and recognize - the drinking and smoking, the con man aspect of him - that's going to be very much part of the series," he said.
Unfortunately, it may be all in accordance with how the New 52 is being handled, and for all we know, despite the anti-hero elements Alan Moore's creation was known for, there's every chance even that will be ruined by the same political correctness that's even affected the new take on Swamp Thing. For now, this looks to be the last DC series that went under the Vertigo imprint to come to an end, and shift back into the regular universe because they've decided to stop using the imprint for almost everything that was originally published under the standard DC label.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
