Hellblazer #13-22, 51
At my journal, I've got summaries of and some thoughts on Hellblazer #13-22 and #51. These issues, which include the "Fear Machine" arc, aren't collected in TPBs, but there's some good stuff.

If you're interested, this link will take you to the discussion on my journal.

Art: [Dream, Delirium, Desire] [Sandman]
I'm making it a project of mine to sketch portraits of all seven of the Endless: Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Despair, and Delirium. As of now, I've only done three: Dream, Delirium, and Desire. They took about a half an hour each.

I think I'll probably start some project later on to draw better versions of each of them, or at least go back and enhance my shading (since I only used a mechanical pencil). All things considered, though, I'm pretty happy with what I've got so far.

Title: Dream
Author Name: Loren S. (hitokoe)
Comic: Sandman

Title: Delirium
Author Name: Loren S. (hitokoe)
Comic: Sandman
DeliriumCollapse )

Title: Desire
Author Name: Loren S. (hitokoe)
Comic: Sandman
DesireCollapse )

I think next, I'll try to draw Death, then Destruction, Despair, and Destiny last. I'm not quite sure what I'll do with Destiny, since his face is usually in shadow.

some reflections on Hellblazer
I've posted some thoughts here in my own journal about homoerotic subtext, Constantine's sexuality, and the backstory similarities between Constantine and Rupert Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

unreleased issue of Hellblazer
Maybe people know about this already (I'm new to Hellblazer) but apparently some years ago there was an issue about school shootings that was never released. But thanks to the wonders of the web, it can be read anyway. And it's really, really good.

burntcopper has the scans posted here on her website.

Hellblazer fic online
I'm sure we've all seen (and boggled at) the trailer for the Hellblazer movie by now-- all I can say is, it looks like a really interesting flick, but, uh, it's not exactly Hellblazer. *G*

I know of two Hellblazer stories online: Ev'rything I've Got, by Te and the recent Yuletide story, Livin' In America (Bainbridge Avenue 2:00am) by W2.

There's also a fanfiction section on this site, Straight to Hell.

Anyone know of any others?
