Exclusive Preview: “The Hellblazer” #13

By | Aug 21, 2017 | Previews

It is no secret that DC has, at times, struggled to find the right tone for John Constantine since his return just before ‘Flashpoint.’ Do you completely lean into the Vertigo/”Hellblazer” model?

With an iconic character such as Nightwing, that one could argue is the heart and soul of DC Comics, it’s to no surprise that the former Boy Wonder currently has one of the best comic teams of both writer and artists working together in the Rebirth series. “Nightwing” #27 is but another issue where the […]

No matter how amazing the classics are, it’s often hard for […]
