* here's one fan's lengthy, affectionate profile of DC's soon-to-be-completed 300-issue Hellblazer. I remember sort of liking that character in the original Swamp Thing comic and then also liking him in the original issues of his own title because Jamie Delano played against his established type and made him sort of desperate and barely in control. Later iterations, much more popular, had a bit more fan service to them. A number of my writers at TCJ were fond of a lot of those comics, and you can't really say that about a lot of mainstream comics from that era. It was pretty much that character and whatever stuff was being drawn by Mike Parobeck.
* I like how I get cocky about knowing everything there is to know about comics and then I read some random post on some younger writer's blog and I realize I maybe know about 15 percent of the comics out there. That's pretty cool.
