Today sees the release of the last issue of Hellblazer, Vertigo's longest running series, finishing at #300.
The blurb from Vertigo reads as follows:
It’s the heart-rending conclusion of “DEATH AND CIGARETTES”—and the end of Vertigo’s longest running series. John Constantine has escaped, cheated, narrowly avoided and even reversed death on multiple occasions over the past 25 years. Now, we will test whether the old boy has one more second chance in him. Don’t miss this epic, oversized special issue celebrating everything that makes John Constantine so bloody unique.It's the end of something special, and while John Constantine lives on in DC's New 52 in his own title, Constantine, it simply won't be the same.
It's not quite the last we'll see of John though, as they'll be the trade paperback edition out at some point soon, and I'll do a proper retrospective after that.There are also older issues being collected into trade paperbacks, which promise to fill in some of the large gaps in the series the previous tpb's missed.
