Alan Moore created the character after artists Steve Bissette and John Totleben, who were fans of The Police, expressed a desire to draw a character who looked like Sting.They had already drawn at least one character in Sting's likeness, a briefly glimpsed background figure wearing a black-and-red-striped T-shirt in Swamp Thing #25 (1984), who was later retroactively declared to be John Constantine.Beginning in Justice League Dark #9, Jeff Lemire assumed writing duties on the series, replacing Milligan who had remained on the Vertigo title.Lemire said he considers Justice League Dark his dream gig at DC Comics because Constantine is one of his all-time favourite characters not just in comics, but in all fiction.I think DC is terrified that Sting will sue them, although Sting has seen the character and commented in Rolling Stone that he thought it was great.He was very flattered to have a comic character who looked like him, but DC gets nervous about these things.

Who knows nuns, politicians and bikers, and who is never at a loss for what to do.Moore describes Constantine as being drawn from a number of "really good ideas... want[ing] to draw Sting in a story." Asked in 1985 about the similarities between John Constantine and the character Baron Winters (from Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan's Night Force), Moore revealed that he was a "big fan" of Wolfman and Night Force, but that there was "no intention to rip off Baron Winters".With Constantine, I don't know who I was thinking of.The DCU Constantine has to be the guy we know and love, with his same failings—otherwise what's the point of using him?But as I'm writing him he's younger and has perhaps been through a bit less than the battered aging old sod we meet in Vertigo.
