"Holy crap, this guy looks like Constantine.
He is probably going to end up being my favourite character."
So I decided I would draw this. Sam and Dean are cracking up on the left, and the guy losing his shit on the right hand side is Chas.
Castiel doesn't get the joke. Obviously.
Castiel, the boys and Bobby's house in the background are from Supernatural
John Constantine and Chas are from Vertigo/DC comics
I really enjoyed the artwork you have. It perfectly captures the character of Constantine. (though I may cause blasphemy here by saying I have not seen Supernatural with the single exception of the episode with Scooby Doo).
I've read Constantine since the days of Swamp Thing back in the mid-80s and Constantine is a character that should remain in the British gothic horror stories. Alan Moore created this character to be specifically in the horror genre and author Jamie Delano did a great job as being Hellblazer's first writer to keep him in the horror arena. Recent attempts to integrate Constantine in the superhero stories doesn't work for me.
Matt Ryan is a great actor, and I hope he continues to play Constantine in any shape or form on TV... but I'd still like to see him get his own show back. Perhaps on Netfix which would be geared to a more adult audience.
I too hope that he gets his series back, but after the cancellation of Swampthing (which was actually good and gives me the "why tf was it cancelled like Constantine" vibe) I have littke hope.
But I actually love the Justice league dark comics
I'm normally a pretty laid-back guy, but I do have a lot of problems with Constantine being added to different superhero teams. I have heard rumors of Constantine possibly coming back to a series in Vertigo after the successful relaunch of Sandman issues via Vertigo.
It's a bit weird what happened with the Swamp Thing TV series, and there is some interesting behind the scenes politics that went on. I haven't seen Swamp Thing TV show yet, but it looks like a great horror show with some possible philosophical themes. The crew of this show made a deal with the state they're filming (I think it's in North Carolina or something close to it). It was due to an accounting error made by North Carolina and had promised to cover $40 million in costs for the next season... which never happened. That's only one of the theories going around. It could be the same reason why Netflix cancelled so many of the Marvel TV shows at short notice. Corporations being merged putting several shows at risk.
Justice League Dark is pretty good. Dr. Strange from Marvel is one of my favorite comics.
I've always liked the more fantasy elements in the comic book media. I'm more of a horror movies fan and also a huge Doctor Who fan especially the Tom Baker era (where he's got the most gothic horror stories of any incarnations). I tend to like reading horror books as well. When it comes to the comics, I tend to veer towards the fantasy elements.
Though Constantine is technically British gothic horror when his character was introduced in the 1980s, I do think there are a lot of dark fantasy elements since he's a magician. I've been a bit of a Doctor Strange fan since the 1980s, and I do have the entire run of Dr. Strange books back to the early 1970s. (I lucked out getting Dr. Strange #1 from 1974 in the Chicago convention where they sold it for $5 instead of $50).
There are a ton of other magician type characters I do like. Such as Zatanna who is a great character. I was rather miffed when they canceled her comic series after an all-too-brief duration. I'm also fond of the Madame Xanadu books as well as I have the entire run of that series along with some of the earlier issues from the seventies. The poetry-speaking Demon from DC comics is pretty cool too.
