Joyce - It's been a while since you posted, I looked around on TJ's page and didn't see it. If it's still there somewhere let me know.

 

PADRE! - It is true ;) I did meet the man, albeit briefly at dinner. John's lady, Sandy King Carpenter is one of my pals and favorite peeps. I was supposed to do a cover for #1 but had some family issues and fallout from all that has pushed my issue or issues back to after issue 3. Stay tuned!! Very excited about this. Hooked Sandy up with Leo Manco, my former partner in crime on HELLBLAZER to do interior art and it's AMAZING. Awesome book with story by Thomas Ian Griffith, Sandy King Carpenter, with script by our own BRUCE JONES!!!

 

JAMES!! - Dude! Good to see you here! Hellblazer won't be the same (which is to say a book worth checking out) until we get the snarky sonovabitch back to VERTIGO, or back to his 'ol self, anyways.

Not sure WHAT DC's angle on doing what they're doing to him must have been, but it ain't for me. Only thing I can compare it to is back in the late 80's, Jim Shooter wanted to take Shang Chi and turn him into a super-hero Ninja . . . Consequently, the great talent they had on the book got the fuck out (Doug Moench and Gene Day), jumped ship to DC to take over DETECTIVE. Sadly, Gene Day passed away before he got an issue in - at the age of 32.

Part of me still blames Shooter. So yeah, YUCK.

Never mind it is not there any more. But thanks. And yes I know I wasn't on here for a little awhile but I had to have surgery done to remove 2 kidney stones lodged in my tubes and it took me some time to recover.  And I am glad you are back. :)

Glad you're OK!

I just meant your post was a while ago and I've been off-line and under the radar since March so because I was tardy in answering the question I figured the offensive pic may have been taken down a while ago.

Thanks for letting us know!

Even though I missed seeing your post initially there are folks here who would get word to us through other means when it concerns stuff like that.

So I figure word got to TJ somehow ;)

 

Kidney Stones! AHHG!

Very cool :). I'd love to meet him myself someday. I picked up the first issue of Asylum a few weeks back. It has some interesting characters and really beautiful artwork. The only thing missing was a new Carpenter score.

Indeed! We'll try and get him rolling on that. I agree. That book needs it's own score - Limited edition CD's pressed into the TRADE EDITION ;)

I haven't read the new CONSTANTINE comics brought on by THE NEW 52. Though, I have checked out JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, and all I can truly say is that making JOHN CONSTANTINE a young chap with a lot of snazzy dialogue mixed with magic has me coming back to see what happens next. This is mainly due to the fact that they have an ensemble cast in the mix for him to interact with. It is worth a look if not for the artwork alone.

 

Alright, another question. I might have asked it before, but I've always been a big fan of the people you get to model for your covers (I've always wanted to be involved in that) and was wondering how one goes about getting that gig. How do you pick the people, and is it like a right place/right time sort of thing? Because if that is the case then name the time/place and I am most certainly there. :D

Do you know how you got that dent, in your top lip? Way back, before you were born, I told you a secret, then I put my finger there and I said "Shhhhh!"
