You can buy every issue in the 25 year long Hellblazer series for only 99 cents per issue. That’s 50% off 300 comics! How can you perform this wizard feat? Why, with Comixology, of course.
I haven’t done a lot of Comixology deals as of late because they have been mainly on Marvel and DC franchises that everyone knows, like Batman and Captain America. While those are fine, I like featuring some of the smaller publishers like Vertigo and their 25 year long Hellblazer series. Now, before some comic nerd comments, I know Vertigo is part of DC, but it is an imprint that focuses specifically on more adult comics instead of the flashy superhero comics that are getting turned into movies. While Vertigo isn’t exactly struggling, they are often overlooked by some of the more casual readers.
As I mentioned, Hellblazer has been running for 25 years and, as of last month, is over. It ran for 300 issues. That is an amazing feat for any media property. From the Bloody-Disgusting.com description of the final issue:
It’s the heart-rending conclusion of “DEATH AND CIGARETTES”—and the end of Vertigo’s longest running series. John Constantine has escaped, cheated, narrowly avoided and even reversed death on multiple occasions over the past 25 years. Now, we will test whether the old boy has one more second chance in him. Don’t miss this epic, oversized special issue celebrating everything that makes John Constantine so bloody unique.
