He's not affiliated with the sites anymore (he was a co-owner at the time of its sale while Tony and Dave were not from what I understood). I never really thought anything of it (although it was sad to see him go) until a recent podcast with James Robinson where G-Man references him as his "brother-in-law" and I was sort of surprised he didn't just call him by name since everyone should know who he is.

No, it can't, at least not this fan who won't be able to read this new series on a point of principle even if it turns out to be an amazing book. Hellblazer has consistently been my favorite ongoing series for the past couple years and it was exactly the fact they let fans keep John while DC readers got that awful version that I considered the saving grace of DC's legacy but I think this New 52 has successfully ruined any appreciation I have for the business side at DC and I feel like I should boycott their stuff just to prove a point even though I actually enjoy some of it. The stuff they've been doing to water down characters I never enjoyed when I originally tried all the books and I can't support any of that part of the universe anymore.

I thought I did a few times but then I realized I was looking for love in the wrong changing room and now I just have to re-double my efforts to make up for lost time ^_^

@fesak: it didn't have any associations though or any real data explaining any of that, no appearances = no page

Crap, I made that page you know, and it did have associations and pictures of the character (as well as info if I remember correctly) that are not the character on the other page. I'm not going to remake it but I would like to point out that fesak is correct and they were two characters.

I've never read Chronicles of Womwood but Garth Ennis only has three kinds of stories: religious, violent satire and the brutal reality of war. How he chooses to mix and match the three is the only thing that really divides his comics as separate entities so pick which of these themes you enjoyed from Ennis and find his other books that focus on those ones is my suggestion.

P.S. I'm not implying Garth Ennis is bad, I've read lots of his stuff and enjoyed it.

@Billy Batson: I seem to recall you being the one to originally tell me it was an ongoing...I'm going to have to start disregarding everything you tell me

Also, why're people getting offended over Punk Rock Jesus, I highly doubt Sean Murphy's being malicious and hell even some writers who do try to be malicious (like Garth Ennis) make great points with their stories (when he actually tries). Sean Murphy explained the origin of the story over on the Vertigo blog, while he admitted he became an atheist, he could've claimed to be a Christian and people would have thought of it as a thought-provoking piece so that seems a little unfair. John Milton was a Christian and he made Satan out to be the tragic hero, why aren't people offended about that?

@Billy Batson: I don't like reading solicits too much, usually if it's a mini it will say #1 (of 6)

Wait, I thought Punk Rock Jesus was an ongoing, where does it say it's a miniseries? That's disappointing :(
