My first run was based on First Comic's "American Flagg!", issues 1-4.
I've got an ongoing plotline based on some things that happened in issues
5-12 of the same series.

Oh, and speaking of Zot!, that's one of the best comic book titles I've
read - if anybody has a copy of #36, please contact me.

Jesse....uh..damn...He's the main character. He didn't "steal" his power,
he was possessed by a being called Genesis and they joined together.
Genesis was the spawn of a demon and an angel, but it'd be equally good as
a very powerful free spirit. Jesse, btw, you'd have to play carefully. He
had the power to make anyone do whatever he wanted just by speaking (he's
the only person besides God in the series who could tell Death what to do.)
but wouldn't use it often.

And John Constantine is no where near being a burned out Mage. He has
worked some major mojo in the books. He's just smart enought to conive his
way through things rather than fire ball the door down, so to speak.
