I am glad to hear it will stick closer to the source material than the movie.

I am really enjoying the TV show Constantine.

It is a lot more faithful to the comic than the garbage movie.

MG, thank you for this. It was not on my radar but is now firmly planted.

Mormo Zine...still need to check out Constantine. That comic and Preacher were my faves.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Likewise, I had no idea this show was in the works but am very grateful for the heads-up. Thanks!

As for Constantine, as a die-hard Hellblazer reader from the first issue to the last, I'm very pleased with this show. They're weaving in the Newcastle storyline well, and this one feels so much more like John Constantine than Keanu Reeves did. If only they were able to show him smoking on network TV. The father in me is glad they don't, but the fan in me has difficulty reconciling a Constantine that isn't chain smoking at all times.

I just can't get into Constantine. I am a huge fan of the character, and read everything that he was in until they watered him down and moved him into the New 52 line of comics. I feel the same way about the TV show - far too watered down, nowhere near dark enough, etc. HBO could have done a halfway decent adaptation, but Constantine on network TV is just always going to be too limited for my tastes.
