The Hellblazer - Rebirth #1

"Part of the brief that editorial gave me was to take John Constantine back to his roots, so I suddenly had the luxury of all that great continuity to play with. Which is pretty great. I’m able to reference pieces of his past, like the tree tattoo on his arse, and at the same time not ignore his recent adventures in NYC.
To me it’s all part of that tapestry that came before. I think I got lucky in the “Rebirth” event as I didn’t pick up a character who’d been broken and really needed that much “fixing.” He might have taken a wrong turn or two over twenty plus years, but all I had to do was dust him off, do right by his past, and double down on his Englishness."

Justice League: Gods and Monsters - Superman

"What's so wonderful about these characters, these great iconic characters like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, is that there's something essential about all three of them. You can bend them, you can twist them, you can do all kinds of things to them -- come up with different histories, come up with parallel universes -- but there's some inherent appeal about them that no matter what clothes you put on them, no matter where you take them, the heart and soul remains the same." - J.M. DeMatteis

Jonah Hex vs. Gotham City, Round Two

"All-Star Western" has been on most people's "best of the New 52" lists, but we haven't had a post about it in a while, so I'm going to do a big post of the second storyline.

Four pages each from issues #4, 5 & 6. After the main feature will be the Court of Owls tie-in issue you may have missed, and a special random treat.

SPOILER WARNING: Unlike my usual new comics posts, I will be giving away the ending to All-Star Western #6, so if you're still waiting on your copy, you might want to come back later.
