In honour of the (sadly) recently-cancelled NBC series Constantine, here's a tribute to one of my favourite Hellblazer supporting characters.


Trigger warning for suicide. Also, contains content that may offend religious sensibilities (this is, after all, from Ennis's run).

If it is indeed the Lord who picks our friends for us... )

Right about now, I'm at exactly the right age to start pursuing all the Classics in comic-book history in hopes that I'll become better at winning arguments with other comic book nerds on the Internet. And when it comes to the Classics, there's only one name for someone as myopic as me: Alan Moore.

Sure, Moore's star has faded for many fans today, but his mastery over dialogue, pacing, and plotting alike still leaves roughly 80% of comic-book creators today in the dust, and I've never read more than a fraction of his work. No time like the present to fix that.

And since I'm an obsessive little bastard, I insist on poring over (almost) every little bit of Mr. Moore's extensive bibliography, starting from the very beginning. I'd originally planned on doing this series in strict chronological order, but I quickly realized that that wouldn't quite work, so I'm doing it by franchise instead - though still in rough chronological order. And because all reading and no discussion makes Lego go crazy, I invite all of you well-read S_D'ers to come read along with me.

We'll be beginning with his five backup strips for Doctor Who, a series that I know and cherish well, as is mandatory of every geek on the Internet. Seriously, it's about a space cop who goes flying around in a phone booth fighting the Borg, right? Right?

Behind the cut: my first real contact with Doctor Who. Thanks, Alan! )
