Hellblazer series by Jamie Delano, Garth Ennis and Paul Jenkins

Created by Alan Moore as a supporting character for his run on Swamp Thing, the blue-collar magician called John Constantine quickly took on a life of his own. (Quite literally, if you believe the stories some of his writers have told about meeting John in the flesh!) While appearing in a variety of series and novels, it is the Hellblazer series in which John primarily hung his trenchcoat and went on to become the definitive world-weary supernatural detective, who held back the forces of darkness at the cost of his own sanity and soul.

Theater of Blood with Vincent Price and Diana Rigg

Humiliated by a gaggle of theater critics who panned his season-long tribute to the works of William Shakespeare, Classical actor Edward Lionheart dove out an open window and into the Thames, apparently committing suicide. Unbeknownst to the public, Lionheart survived, rescued by a group of homeless vagrants who had ironically taken refuge in an abandoned theater. Two years later, beginning  on March 15th (the Ides of March), Lionheart and his new troupe set out to extract revenge using Shakespeare’s plays as inspiration.
