Music Icon Sting Announces Participation in the Constantine 30th Anniversary

In a special video, worldwide music icon Sting revealed he will pen the foreword to the John Constantine: Hellblazer: 30th Anniversary Celebration commemorative collection. Sting’s foreword will take on the perspective of the Golden Boy, Constantine’s alternate-universe twin, touching on his relationship with the occult detective over the years.

While wearing the iconic trenchcoat, Sting sees the resemblance between himself and the iconic comic character.

Starting with his first appearance, a debut penned by legendary writer Alan Moore, Constantine has served as an enduring and controversial pop culture character—an exorcist and demonologist, master of the dark arts, and the lead of DC Vertigo’s longest-running and most successful title.

The commemorative collection will explore the complete history of the series with four one-page essays written by Hellblazer author Rich Handley. It will also include a comprehensive timeline of Constantine’s life and three one-page stories featured in John Constantine: Hellblazer issues #1, 2 and 4. Memorable stories from Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Garth Ennis, Brian Azzarello, Paul Jenkins, Jamie Delano and others reflect the best of the long-lasting series, including Hellblazer issues #11, 27, 41, 63, 120, 146, 229 and 240 and Saga of the Swamp Thing #37, where the character was officially introduced.

John Constantine: Hellblazer: 30th Anniversary Celebration commemorative collection will be available October 30.

A Walk Through Hell #1 Gets a Second Printing

Garth Ennis and Goran Sudžuka‘s A Walk Through Hell #1 has sold out and is getting a second printing. It features colors by Ive Scorcina and lettering by Ron Steen.

So these two FBI agents walk into a warehouse…

Special Agents Shaw and McGregor handle the routine cases nowadays, which is just the way Shaw likes it. She’s pushing 40, a borderline burnout, the ghastly memories of her last investigation still clinging like shadows. McGregor is younger, more dedicated, hanging onto some measure of idealism whatever the world might throw at him.

When two fellow agents go missing inside a Long Beach warehouse, Shaw and McGregor are sent to investigate. But what they find waiting is far from routine, as the local police have already discovered to their cost. Before the night is out, our heroes will encounter terror beyond their most appalling nightmares—in a place where the night may never end at all.

The issue published by AfterShock is getting a brand new cover for the second printing.

Marvel Knights Gets a 20th Anniversary Trade Program

Visionary creators such as Joe Quesada, Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev, Garth Ennis, Christopher Priest, Steve Dillon, David W. Mack, Grant Morrison, Jimmy Palmiotti, Jae Lee, Kevin Smith, Jeph Loeb, and more created the stories that would change the comics industry! And together, with co-founders and editors Quesada and Palmiotti at the helm, they would become superstar legends for their revolutionary work!

With Marvel Knights, Marvel traded traditional style for daring storytelling, creating new and bold tales for Marvel icons such as Punisher, Daredevil, The Inhumans, Black Widow, and Black Panther. By reinventing classic characters and focusing on strong stand-alone story arcs, Marvel Knights nearly recreated the Original Graphic Novel as monthly comic format – and became the industry’s spark that paved the way for the bright and intrepid stories of today’s heroes!

This fall, in honor of the critically acclaimed imprint’s 20th anniversary, Marvel is celebrating the inception of Marvel Knights by bringing fans a uniform set of new trade paperbacks featuring the best of Marvel Knights, as well as two brand new Omnibus editions.

So these two FBI agents walk into a warehouse…

Special Agents Shaw and McGregor handle the routine cases nowadays, which is just the way Shaw likes it.
