    Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes have crafted a single-issue story that puts you into the mind of Constantine, who will be a major player of the upcoming Trinity War. This issue certainly points us in that direction with the warnings of Zatanna and the parrot. This issue also plants seeds for the future of Papa Midnite and the Cult of the Cold Flame. If you want to read all the tie-ins for Trinity War, Constantine #4 serves as a great jumping on point! Read Full Review

    Lemire and Fawkes may have been moving plot points forward in this issue but they managed to remind readers that John isa good guy and sneak in hints about the upcoming Trinity War. The death of Catwoman in Justice League of America issue 4 could be the start. Readers should jump onboard this comic because John Constantine will be involved in shaking up the DC universe this summer. Read Full Review

    It's a case of two steps forward, and one step back with this series. This issue is fine, but never really gets beyond fine, which is a shame. John's inner voice is still rock solid and continues to build on the earlier work that Fawkes and Lemire established in the first few issues, but the story itself doesn't really build any momentum or do anything of too much interest. Given how far the series has come since its first issue, and the vast improvements that issues 2 and 3 were on issue 1, going backwards is not a good idea. Hopefully Trinity War's impending arrival will help it back up the quality ladder. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 12, 2013

    Fabiano Neves' art doesn't help matters. At times, he gives some great emotion to the characters. However, when it comes to body language, things get screwy. Characters often have awkward and stiff poses. Also, there are far too many lines on Constantine's shirt, which gives him a puffy, stuffed look as opposed to a wrinkled, unkempt one. That said, Neves does deliver a high level of detail in nearly every panel. He never skimps on a background or a stitch of clothing. There are some truly great looking pages, we just aren't really given a reason to care about them. Read Full Review

    "Constantine" #4 is exactly what everyone feared a DC Universe replacement for "Hellblazer" would be like. (Well, except he doesn't fight Killer Croc or the Reverse-Flash, so that's some small relief.) This book is already limping, and that's a bad sign. If things don't pick up and quickly, I can't see "Constantine" maintaining a readership. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 20pgs. %$@#&! ADs!! Killer cover ruined by AD banner! . . Another good issue which may not match up to the old Hellblazer, but rises above most mainstream/ cape comics IMHO. The art really shines and the colors look great. Writing is OK, despite redundancy, even if its sliding into standard nuDC territory. I'm sure the dialog and character elements may upset old HB fans, but i find it to be fine. I don't know if I'm staying on, considering the Trinity War BS X-over, but in and of itself its a decent title that seems to be improving with each issue.
