Hellblazer #63 - March 1993

"Forty" by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.

John Constantine turns forty, and his friends--including the Swamp Thing--throw him a party. The Phantom Stranger shows up, in his own inimitable way:
...another groundbreaking moment for The Phantom Stranger: talking to someone while they're peeing. You never saw this in Brave and the Bold!

I never really liked that part of this issue. Paul Jenkins did a much more appropriate job in "Critical Mass".

If I recall correctly, the reason why the Stranger left in a huff was because when he came upon Constantine in the alley pissing, John turned around and pissed on his shoes, which was hilarious, and yet a little sad because for once, PS had honestly come in friendship.

Garth Ennis, the master of superhero bodily function humor!
