My first two attempts...not sure I created them properly, but here goes.

Everything I have that's Neil Gaiman (Which is everything that is scanned), sorted by date of release. There are a few non-Gaiman things there, but I grabbed anything where he was credited as "writer". If I'm missing something, please let me know.

John Constantine/Hellblazer mega reading list. This is basically a reading list built from the "Ultimate Hellblazer Index" (www.qusoor.com/hellblazer/jcindex.htm).

I wish I had of found this before starting to read the series. In the first 10 issues of Hellblazer there is a lot of back story which takes place in Swamp Thing before Hellblazer actually starts. It can leave one a little lost.

This is the disclaimer by the creator of the index.

"A NOTE ON THE ORDER: This is based on date of publication, established dates, references to other events, and a desire to have Constantine travel as little as possible. While it is certainly possible for John to hop the Atlantic once or twice in a week, I don’t see as he’s very fond of it. Thus, I have attempted to cluster certain events so that John will have to travel as little as possible. I have put Crisis #4 ahead of “Growth Patterns” because Constantine is in Scotland for Crisis, England at the beginning of “Growth Patterns,” in America at the end of “Growth Patterns,” and still in America in the beginning of “Still Waters.” Rather than have him travel over the Atlantic three times, I place the events of Crisis before “Growth Patterns,” so he only has to fly once.

John Goodrich"


There are a couple of small changes I made. Goodrich only includes 3-5 of Papa Midnite. I put all 5 in. It seems reading lists don't allow duplicates. "Vertigo Secret Files - Hellblazer" is on the list twice. In the first position for the story "The First Time", where I left it. It is also located after Hellblazer 145 for the story(ies) "The Gangster, The Whore, and the Magician". Likewise Hellblazer 75 is on the list twice, in position 6 and between 74 and 76. I chose to leave it in the second position, between 74 and 76.

"Twlight" aka "Twlight of the Superheroes" by Alan Moore was never produced or published, but the 24 page proposal was leaked to the Internet. I would post it here, but I'm unsure if it's still considered copyright material so I'll leave it to you to find it if the interest is there.

Other than that, I've added new Hellblazer issues up to 281 and a couple specials which were missing, namely "Lady Constantine", Heartland and the movie adaptation.

Enjoy!!

A common mistake when making lists...



How do we sort these..?

There should have been an Alternate number.

I'm not following you. What exactly did I do wrong? I'm not seeing a field for alternate number. Nevermind, I found Alternate Number....are you talking about adding the same issue multiple times?

None of the other lists I've downloaded had alternate numbers. How do we sort what? I was under the impression reading lists were simply sorted by position, already in reading order, otherwise, what's the point?

Looks like you have "Position" hidden in your screen-shot.

Swamp Thing

This covers v1 to v4 with all the tie-ins I could find. It gets the same treatment as John Constantine above and should be sorted by position. Again, this was compiled from a couple lists I found on the Internet. I can't vouch for the accuracy, but it's better than going in to such a daunting series blind.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that reading lists are just xml files with the books stored in the order that ComicRack displays them sorted by Position. Alternate Number is metadata, so its either stored in the database file, and maybe also inside the comic file itself, I haven't checked, but its not any of the reading lists I've made
I usually apply an alternate number after I've sorted them in list manually, in case I do some chopping and changing later.
