And one lucky fan got to take this signed coat home from today’s Vertigo panel.
This Valentine’s Day I asked the Vertigo editors to pick a few couples from both classic and current Vertigo titles that defy our expectations of coupledom. I hope you enjoy this unique twist on the holiday we love to not love.
Let’s start off with Will Dennis’ picks:
Rookie Vertigo Assistant Editor Gregory Lockard here with my first blog for GRAPHIC CONTENT and it’s regarding HELLBLAZER #275! This issue features both the wedding of John Constantine and Epiphany Greaves in an over-sized anniversary special by one of my all-time favorite writer/artist teams AND it is my first issue as Shelly’s assistant editor. “Holy crap” would be a boring understatement but my thumping heart won’t let me concentrate.
In issue #2, safe in sanctuary, Constantine is forced to relinquish the temptations of his hot and deviant nurse and limp back onto his beloved London streets only to find that things are changing fast in the City of Demons.
Check out the cover and a few pages below!
John Constantine has walked the streets of London, been to hell and back and has aged gracefully since his first appearance 25 years ago. Now, HELLBLAZER, the longest running ongoing Vertigo series hit’s issue #272 with a story that will shock you.
It was announced at the Vertigo: On the Edge panel that the chain-smoking con man may be getting married! That's right, married!
Written by Si Spencer and with art by red-hot sensation Sean Murphy (Joe The Barbarian) JOHN CONSTANTINE: HELLBLAZER--CITY OF DEMONS, a completely stand-alone 5 issue mini-series, begins this October!
