• Welcome to our first Collective Consciousness column. We’ve decided to make this a regular column, where we choose a topic and let the CTG staff loose to share their thoughts and feelings on it.

This isn’t the traditional “best of comics list” which you’ll find in abundance with a quick Google search. This is more of way for you to get to know us better and what we really enjoyed reading this year. We think of it more as a fun way to
  • In the wake of Thursdays general election in the UK, and the results on Friday, I can’t help but feel Hellblazer is the comic that we NEED right now, both here in the UK and the world in general.
