Ray Fawkes On Constantine #1

CONSTANTINE, a new ongoing series starring John Constantine by co-writers Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes, and artist Renato Guedes,



Source: Press Release - DC Blog

In a Press Release from DC, co-writer Ray Fawkes teases what's coming up in the new Constantine title. 

 

 

Hitting stands on March 13, CONSTANTINE #1 kicks off an ongoing series starring John Constantine within the ever-expanding DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. From the co-writers of JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes, and fan-favorite artist Renato Guedes, CONSTANTINE shines a spotlight on the notoriously flawed antihero as he works to protect the world from the darkest corners of the DC Universe.
 
CONTANTINE is turning into the window through which readers can see the dirtiest side of superpowers in the DC Universe, the nasty magic side,” Fawkes teased about the series.
 
“John has a very specific fight he's actually involved in in this series,” Fawkes continues. “The first issue will reveal what it is he's after. But he's the instigator in a lot of the stories that are going to happen. In this book, he's the one looking for the trouble. Sooner or later trouble starts to find him because of all the things he's doing … John is not your typical hero-type character. He has a lot of vices. You'll see him indulging in just about all of them. I mean sort of the only thing I can't do with him in this title is swearing directly. In the book, he drinks, he smokes, he does a lot of other dirty things.”
 
For more from Fawkes about the premiere issue of CONSTANTINE and this eagerly-anticipated series launch, check out the full interviews that ran with him today on MTV GEEK, NEWSARAMA,  COMIC VINE, and  IFANBOY.
 
 
Below check out a special 5-page preview of CONSTANTINE #1.

Gender-switching sorcery might lead to some entertaining hi-jinks :groucho:

Yeah, as soon as i read that word balloon i thought that we are no longer in Vertigo any more, never see that overblown exposition in hellblazer.

I'm not a fan of a DC Constantine book and this does little to persuade. The art doesn't suit

I like the art. It has a very clean feel to it.

But should a Constantine story really look clean?

I hate that digitally-shaded and manipulated "clean" style you see more and more in mainstream comics, and I think it makes Constantine look sort of ridiculous.

It's a symptom of the comics industry's self-hate. They really wish they were movies.

Likely.

The movie Constantine wished it was a movie too.

This.

And if it does look clean, it'd be Dillon clean. Clean but violent.

USA Today has a different preview that's not as "shiny" as the first one :P
