John Constantine’s new DC comedian guide ends with him kissing the Satan

This week, DC wrapped up the Black Label guide Hellblazer: Rise and Fall with a narrative about John Constantine investigating a mysterious string of deaths wherein the worst of society’s higher crust hold leaping to their deaths with what appear to be angel wings sewn into their backs.

Manner again within the collection’ first subject, Devil tips John into believing for a number of minutes that he had a drunken one night time stand with the satan himself, earlier than laughing his ass off and telling John that because the King of Hell he has higher requirements than that. However is John Constantine too low lease for fast snog with the Lord of Lies?

This week we came upon that no. No he isn’t.

What else is going on within the pages of our favourite comics? We’ll let you know. Welcome to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly checklist of the books that our comics editor loved this previous week. It’s half society pages of superhero lives, half studying suggestions, half “take a look at this cool artwork.” There could also be some spoilers. There is probably not sufficient context. However there will probably be nice comics. (And when you missed the final version, learn this.)


Hellblazer: Rise and Fall #3

John Constantine makes out with Satan (red skinned, horned, tailed, wearing a suit) in a dingy pub bathroom, in Hellblazer: Rise and Fall #3, DC Comics (2021).

What actually makes this panel for me is the proper creative selection on Darick Robertson’s half, that when French kissing the Satan, Constantine would raise his ankle like a little bit princess.

Runaways #33

The Runaways fight Wolverine and Pixie to a standstill to keep them from taking Molly to Krakoa against her will. Pixie exclaims “We’re only here because we got Molly’s distress call. She asked us to bring her to Krakoa,” in Runaways #33, Marvel Comics (2021).

Awww, sure, Runaways is lastly addressing the Krakoa query: Now that every one mutants have a house, how does resident mutant Runaway Molly Hayes really feel about residing on the island?

“They are not heroes because they are perfect. They are heroes because they must overcome their imperfections,” says a narrator, as Yara Flor/Wonder Woman weeps, until her pegasus bonks her with his head. “Stop, Jerry! You are so annoying!” she cries, smiling again, in Future State: Wonder Woman #2, DC Comics (2021).

Yara Flor’s first solo collection concluded this week, however don’t fear — she’ll be again as Surprise Lady!

X-Issue #7

Prodigy attempts to usher his boyfriend Speed out of X-Factor HQ as Speed peppers Northstar with questions about how fast and cool he is in X-Factor #7. “I’m also rich and gay, since you seem to be keeping score,” Northstar quips.

Tommy/Pace shedding his cool over Northstar, seasoned homosexual speedster, was one of many loveliest moments on this week’s X-Issue.

The Dreaming: Waking Hours #7

Todd, a muscular guy in a mesh shirt, knocks on the door of the exiled angle Jophiel, the the form of a black man. He explains that he can’t find his girlfriend Heather, and Jophiel calls out to Ruin to say they’re going for a walk, in The Dreaming: Waking Hours #7, DC Comics (2021).

Talking of queers, this arc of The Dreaming: Waking Hours is popping into that one meme. Each queer buddy group has: An exiled angel, a speaking raven, a child gargoyle, a trans sorceress, her himbo boyfriend who loves her a lot he lets her gown him in mesh shirts, and a nightmare who fell in love with a monk he noticed as soon as in a dream.

This isn’t a criticism.

Black Knight: King in Black

Dane Whitman is berated by a ghost of his ancestor for being a shitty Black Knight and a shitty Avenger in Black Knight: King in Black, Marvel Comics (2021).

Black Knight: King in Black serves as a one-shot preview of Simon Spurrier’s Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade, and I’m right here for Spurrier writing a Falstaffian fantasy hero. Coda knocked my socks off.

Far Sector #10

Green Lantern Jo receives a panicked message from her friend CanHaz, who says that the Council is ordering a shudown of half the referendum servers, preventing her people from voting, as many of them can’t afford to vote in person, in Far Sector #10, DC Comics (2021).

Far Sector wins the award for many eerily prescient — however maybe not surprisingly prescient, provided that it’s written by sci-fi creator N.Okay. Jemisin — comedian on the stands at the moment.

Hellions #9

The Hellions react to the news that Mister Sinister is in a bind by laughing and suggesting they go grab lunch, in Hellions #9, Marvel Comics (2021).

Hellions didn’t seize me in its first arc however ever because the X of Swords stuff, each subject of it’s one thing that tickles my love of bizarre comedian guide meta and provides me a superb stomach snort.
