    Out of the frying pan and into the fire is how Constantine's life goes and this installment is no exception. We saw how foolishly brash he was the last time around in the club that Neron took over and he's just as cocky here in order to keep Neron off balance in how to deal with him. I love the way Midnite has to try and deal with him and the way Blythe does once they show up just adds to it. This is definitely an amusing trio to watch as they work through the escape and Rossmo just delivers hand over fist once again here. There's some amazing artwork in this book with some fantastic design elements and layouts that just makes it a hugely compelling work. This arc is proving to be a delight and it feels like there are a few more shoes yet to drop. Read Full Review

    The characterization of John Constantine is fantasticand his Lethal Weapon routine withPapa Midnite is wonderful. This is a really enjoyable, well-paced comic bookthat should have fans of DC's creepier side flocking. The artwork alone"oh theartwork! Minstrels should be singing its praises o'er the countryside, wavinglinen prints of the splash pages like fluttering flags,beckoning children, squealing with laughter and grasping reflexively with their pudgy little fingers, to run behind and follow this art where it may go.

    This isn't the first time John Constantine has had to escape from Hell, nor is it nearly as memorable as that first time around, but it's fun to see a contemporary twist on something that was done a few decades ago. Read Full Review
