Hellblazer: Lady Constantine

The graphic novel collection of Vertigo's LADY CONSTANTINE mini-series goes on sale tomorrow.

Johanna Constantine was originally created by Neil Gaiman in the pages of Sandman, but this was her first and only solo outing, written by myself and illustrated by the mighty Goran Sudzuka.

It was also my first work for the American market, so if you missed it first time round, check out the opening scene below:

You can also download a nifty mini poster from DC's website, and order the book direct from Amazon for less than ten of your Earth dollars.

Titan will be doing a UK reprint shortly, but in the meantime you can pick it up from direct market comic shops.

Get it? Got it? Good.

Joss Whedon on THE LOSERS

Okay, so I know this is a shameless display of own-trumpet-blowing on my part, but what the hell -- I'm so chuffed, I can't not post it...

In the latest Marvel Spotlight, writer/director/all-round genius Joss Whedon lists his favourite comic books, including THE LOSERS:
"Never miss an issue. I'm down with The Losers in a big way. It's tough to make international espionage fresh, and I love that book."
So maybe we never exactly set the sales charts on fire, but an endorsement like that almost means more to me. I have big, big love for Joss Whedon's work, from TOY STORY to BUFFY to FIREFLY and SERENITY, and to get respect from a guy I respect so much really does mean a hell of lot to me.

So, cheers Joss! Cheque's in the post.
