“I’m the one who steps from the shadows, all trenchcoat and cigarette and arrogance, ready to deal with the madness. Oh, I’ve got it all sewn up. I can save you. If it takes the last drop of your blood, I’ll drive your demons away. I’ll kick them in the bollocks and spit on them when they’re down and then I’ll be gone back into darkness, leaving only a nod and a wink and a wisecrack. I walk my path alone… who would walk with me?”
- John Constantine, Hellblazer #41

"Tell us about a scar on your body"
I have a lot lol…I am a VERY clumsy person..The one i hate the most is the one on my face..A while back I had a cat and I ended up being severely allergic (I never had a cat so I didn’t know) and I had to give her up. When I went to hug her goodbye the little bitch clawed my face! So now I am very self conscious about it and spend a lotta time in makeup covering it up :/ I don’t like people seeing me without my makeup on cuz it’s really embarassing.
"Something you’re afraid of?"
Well on a universally spiritual level I am scared of not being remembered and not making a difference in the world. I am constantly searching for a purpose and wanting to contribute to society in a positive way. Regular kinda fear? Gray Alien abductors and having my gut clawed open by a Raptor. Yes I love them and want one as a pet, but fuck if I’m getting on it’s bad side!
"What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?"
hmmm I’ve had a lot of shit jobs but the one I am at now takes the cake. Minimum wage, tons of work, tons of stress, treated like a child, punished by withholding hours and severely under-appreciated. I was only there cuz it fit my school schedule. I am currently seeking other employment before I go postal….
SIGN THE PETITION - NBC: Don't Straight-Wash John Constantine aka Hellblazer #BiBlazer →
NBC producers of Constantine are making a bisexual character straight
. Speaking to reporters
at the Television Critics Association’s press tour, executive producer Daniel Cerone said Constantine’s sexuality isn’t an important part of his character
and downplayed the character’s bisexual history
as archived in 30 years
of comic books.
In the comic books, Constantine alludes to past relationships with both women and men and is periodically depicted leaving the bed of male lovers. But NBC’s Constatine, played by Matt Ryan, doesn’t have any same-sex dates on his dance card at the moment, it seems.
And while Cerone is right in noting a few instances where Constantine was seen getting out of bed with a man, it was more than just "one or two issues." Throughout the comic, Constantine alludes to more than just a few sexual encounters with someone of the same sex.
It’s bad enough networks don’t create bisexual characters let alone when they "straightwash" one. Make your voice heard!

NBC censors Constantine's smoking habit, but is fine with scenes of murder, demonic possession, etc. →
The original Hellblazer comics were aimed squarely at an adult audience, and were chock full of sex, violence, and adult storylines. But oddly enough, the one thing that’s been forbidden from the TV adaptation is… smoking.
“You can’t smoke on network,” Constantine director Neil Marshall told Collider this weekend. “That’s one of his character traits. We’re working around that. We’re trying to get aspects of it in there as much as possible. We’ll see.”
Smoking isn’t just an iconic aspect of John Constantine’s character, it also has a significant effect on his life story. After discovering that he has terminal lung cancer while he’s still in his 30s, he sells his soul to two rival lords of Hell. This resulted in them curing his illness, because his death would lead to them having to start a war over his soul. Constantine’s smoking was also a major part of the Keanu Reeves movie, which portrayed the habit in a similarly negative light.
