Where's Jason Blood?

You know who I miss? Aside from Sand, of course, (though it'd be REALLY NICE TO SEE HIM, DC!) Jason Blood.

I mean, I know Etrigan's around here and there and probably Shadowpact and all, and that's great, but I miss his other half.

I'm also probably the only person in the entire Internet that actually liked Blood of the Demon. Hey, I liked the way it resolved both the original and the later origins, and also...well...Jason Blood was naked often, and really that's my only requirement for a good Jason Blood appearance. Angst, magic, bitching, and entirely gratuitous nakedness. Oh and violence of course. I love me some violence.

I did think Byrne drew Blood too scruffy for my taste though. I always thought he was supposed to be more elegant. And as much as I do like Etrigan, I like the duality more. (Which is probably why I've always liked the original/Blood of the Demon origin best. I'm amused by the idea of Jason as a manufactured split personality of Etrigan as opposed to a separate person.)

You know, with all the Camelot connections, it'd be interesting to see Jason interact with the new Shining Knight. I know it's not the SAME Camelot, but it could be interesting. I suppose he'd have to stay clothed though, she's much too young for that kind of thing...

    It bugs me lots that Batman's back to being all "Magic? No such thing!!". I love it so much better when he's being sensible and calling in Jason Blood and/or Zatanna as his pet specialists.

    Etrigan is currently the coatrack at the Oblivion Bar. Seriously. Turned to stone Gargoyles style.

    He'll be getting better for Giffen's Reign in Hell series, though. Doubt we'' see much Blood in that, but you never know...

    Etrigan got hit by some ghost cowboy bullets that turn people into stone. Until, at least, they get touched by sunlight.

    Shadowpact then stuck him in the Oblivion Bar and threw some coats on him.

    Most recently Superman/Batman went to the bar to aquire a piece of Magical Kyrptonite. It was sealed in a magical case that could only be opened by hell fire, so the the Phantom Stranger whispered in the Etrigan-Statue's ear. It shot the fire needed and opened the box.

    So Etrigan has been trapped, conciously, as a statue for a while now.

    Somebody shall be hurt when he gets free.

    Magical kryptonite? Seriously?

    And how is Batman not buying magic when Zatanna is in Det. like every other issue of late?

    I'd just like to see Ystina *anywhere at all*, other than a meager future-self cameo in Teen Titans. In fact, a whole series set at the.. what was it? H.S. Johnson School for Heroes would definitely be cool. Shouldn't that place be the Teen Titans' major recruiting ground?
