Do you think it's a coinincidence that Glenn Fabry used to do the Hellblazer covers?

I saw a bloke who looked a bit like Simon Bisley today on the District Line. But I don't think it was actually him. Sorry for mentioning it.

Just finished reading issue #260 "The Long Crap Friday".
Brilliant stuff. Art and writing top notch.

My opinions on Bisley and his art are well know, but I have to say that his work on this book is some of the best I've ever seen from him.
It proves he can do it when he wants to!

Which makes all the overblown muscly Iron Maiden roadies that populate his work otherwise all the more annoying.  Proof, finally, that the man can draw as well as he could on The Black Hole.  Someone should take his paints off him, he's SO much better with a pen.

After two issues of lovely interior art, the new issue (261) has an absolutely spiffing Bisley cover. Possibly because it's of a fucking great monster rather than an angular person walking down the street. To be honest, I hadn't been too impressed with Milligan's take so far but, again, this issue is a bit of a blinder. Everything's brighter, more interesting, more vibrant and more vaguely reminiscent of Rogan Josh.

Nice one.
Remaining projection is not open to useful speculation.

Yeah, I'm liking the art, too. Sadly, I'm finding the story a bit dull but Hellblazer's one of those comics you have to read a few of in one go. I'll get to it.

I read the first of his trades, "Scab" the other day.  I was surprised at how good it was.  It's not Delano/Ennis/Campbell/Jenkins/Ellis/Azarello/Carey/Diggle standard in my book, but at least it's not as bad as the scottish woman's stuff (which, to be fair, wasn't completely dreadful - just not that great, which was a surprise as Constantine's only ever had a few bad writers - and most of them didn't do much).

As you say, Trout, Constantine works best in a run of issues.  Which is the reason I usually wait for the trades.

Hmm, I'm generally not a great fan of Bisley, but I thought he did a really great job on 260 - seems like he can still genuinely deliver.  

The story in 261, however... I know it's only the first part, but Miligan's "look, it's India!" stuff was horribly heavy handed.  The Mumbai cops' expository dialogue reminded me of nothing more than Spiderman in Belfast.  Bit of a let down after the skin-eating goodness of recent months.

In this  new 2-part storyline, Constantine
 reluctantly becomes embroiled in a group of
 anarcho punks who worship a powerful effigy of
 Sid Vicious. Complicating matters further is an
 alchemist and a violent group of extreme
 political fixers. Featuring guest Art by Simon Bisley!

Although not on sale until March.
