* I like the John Constantine character, and I like that aspect of his character. It seems more broadly played in the excerpt (the light-hearted inner dialogue) than I think it would have been in the comics with the character I read as a kid, but that's something I would imagine adheres more closely to the character as he's become refashioned and reblended into the DC superhero universe. I had not been aware they blew that off for the TV version.
* Bully discusses Marvel crediting the creators of certain characters. It's not perfect -- there are characters that aren't credited this way, the creation of characters that use an accrual of characteristics over decades is a fair thing to call into question, and some of the assignments might be problematic, but I'd rather be having this discussion than one about creator credit being used as a tool to disperse funds or all the other potential pitfalls. Keep going, Marvel.
* I've come to greatly appreciate these lengthy personal notes from Evan Dorkin as to the current state of his career. There's a balanced portrait there in terms of the ups and downs of maintaing a long-running freelance career.
