    A pointedly funny, light-hearted take on Johns love life, even amid slaughter and environmental magic, Constantine: the Hellblazer #7 may be my favorite issue yet from the team of Doyle, Tynion, Rossmo, and company. We get a great same sex lust story. We get to see John at his glowing best. Even though we know in our hearts it can never last. But in the meantime, Im crushing on Hellblazer like Im 15 and in love all over again. Read Full Review

    There's a great kind of magic to this book where it's like the team is just firing on all cylinders issue after issue. The artwork from Rossmo and Level works really well here as we get to see something creepy and disturbing. There's a good level of violence to be had here, though it still feels like it's pulling back from the edge just a touch so as to not go too far. The stories haven't needed it yet, but you can feel that it's being cautious. I love the dialogue here between the two leads and the whole morning after routine is just great, made all the more so by the expressions that we get from Rossmo and Level with it. Another strong installment that leaves me hungry for more. Read Full Review

    As per usual, Ming Doyle and James Tynion IV spin a most enjoyable tale. It's always a hoot when John and Swamp Thing are forced together and this issue does a great job of acknowledging the characters' shared history without needing to recap Alan Moore's greatest hits. Despite the nods, this issue is easily accessible to new readers and a good jumping-on issue for those who haven't given this series a shot yet. Read Full Review

    This chapter is a fun diversion, but the character drama is where this series really succeeds. Read Full Review

    Constantine: The Hellblazer isn't perfect, but it balances action with downtime well enough to hold over readers until the next issue. The series might have been better served to explore these antagonists a little more, but alas, it was not to be. Read Full Review
