    Hellblazer #6 is a wonderful introduction to John Constantine as a character establishing him as a working class mage, who cares more about occupying his time, paying his rent, and seducing the sexy, bearded bartender at his favorite takeaway joint that being some kind of occult themed superhero. It's very funny and very dark and the best issue of the new Hellblazer so far. Read Full Review

    Constantine: The Hellblazer issue #6 is a fun romp through the life of John Constantine, but goes beyond that to set the stage for another great story arc. And the team responsible for the comic's inception is back together, helping the issue come back to the original style the series started with six months ago. Anyone who loves John Constantine needs to pick this issue up, and it's not a bad idea for everyone else too. Read Full Review

    This is one of the best single issue reads in recent memory for me and it comes on top of a pretty strong opening arc. The team here has completed gotten into the groove of the character quickly and just delights from issue to issue. With great writing and fantastic characterization, we're just scraping the surface of what can be done here and I'm excited to see what comes next. Especially when Riley Rossmo is involved because the art is just incredible here. He captures and conveys so much throughout these pages and the montage aspect of it with a wonderful creativity to some of the demons that I just grin thinking back on it. Which won't last long because I'm going to go read it again and savor it all once more. Very, very recommended. Read Full Review

    Tynion, Doyle, and Rossmo (who is in top form this month) are truly earning back some goodwill for Constantine after the travesty of Ray Fawkes' dismal 'New 52' volume. Read Full Review

    While you won't actually see all the cases that Constantine worked on in detail in this issue, you'll definitely get the gist from an awesome montage that worked way better than it ever should have........ Yeah, I don't know what I mean by that, but I had a blast with how humorous and straight forward this issue was.  Riley Rossmo is back on art on this one and if all that other stuff I said didn't sell you already, then Riley Rossmo being back totally should............. So yeah, go get some Constantine and see what all this nonsense I've been talking is all about. Read Full Review

    James Tynion IV, Ming Doyle and Riley Rossmo show us a day in the life of John Constantine, and I gotta say, it makes for the most entertaining issue of Constantine: The Hellblazer yet. Read Full Review
