    Constantine: The Hellblazer has rapidly become not only DC's best magic book, but also one of their very best comics, period. This is such a perfect blend of perspectives, with both writers and a split art team all working together to create something wholly unique for a fairly well-established character. This is among one of the most perfect portrayals of John Constantine ever and it's possibly the best jumping-on point for people interested in exploring the character. Read Full Review

    What a pleasure it was toread a comic book about two lying magicians hanging out at an evil clubfilledwith torture and gore. The story is good, the characterizations were better,and the art runs away with everything in the ad hoc awards show taking place inmy head. And for best animal used to menace captives: the rooster-headedpython! For strongest thighs and calves: John Constantine! Thank you, ladiesand gentlemen, drive safely. And thank you, creators of this particular comicbook. It is really picking up steam now. Read Full Review

    Constantine: The Hellblazer is an excellent issue that really capitalizes on the personalities readers have come to love while drawing on past stories to build into a greater story. The creative team continues to do good work. Read Full Review

    This book looks great, but I just felt that this story dragged on a bit too slowly for me. It felt like one good frank conversation between Papa Midnight and Constantine would have been able to clear a lot of this unpleasantness up, and not have to cause as many different problems as it did. The art is great, the writing, beyond just getting a bit bogged down with dialogue, and I am really looking forward to seeing how this story goes on from here, and what Constantine does with his relationship with Oliver- because to call this issue a “rough patch” for the two lovebirds would be a GROSS understatement. This series has been really solid, so a few slower or less groundbreaking issues is to be expected, I just was hoping that this book would be one that hit that high bar and just kept right on keeping on being fantastic. This book is a nice way to keep Constantine in a place of prominence in the DC Universe, and unless there will be a new Justice League Dark book (which is very unlikely) I will continue to read this book and enjoy it, I just hope for a rebound with the next issue and to step up the momentum a bit.
