If your head is spinning after reading the headline it’s not because you might have – vertigo – it’s actually because you do not!
DC Comics has announced that with issue #300 of Hellblazer they will be cancelling the Vertigo title and relaunching with Constantine #1 as part of the New 52 in March.
DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio let loose the following:
“We’re supremely proud of Vertigo’s HELLBLAZER, one of the most critically-acclaimed series we’ve published. Issue #300 concludes this chapter of Constantine’s epic, smoke-filled story in style and with the energy, talent and creativity fans have come to expect from Peter Milligan, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Stefano Landini. And no one should worry that John is going to hang-up his trenchcoat – he lives on in March, in the pages of the all-new DC Comics New 52 ongoing series, CONSTANTINE, by writer Robert Venditti and artist Renato Guedes.”
Venditti is currently writing X-O Manowar #1 for Valiant Comics.
