"The Smokeless Fire" part 1! Constantine once heard a ghost story in a Parisian bar, and maybe the old man wasn't just telling tales. So he takes Mercury in search of the only man he knows who's encountered the Djinn. Problem is, they're not the only people looking!

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Feb 22, 2017

    Hellblazer #7 brings on Philip Tan for the art duties of this new story arc and he performs exceptionally. It's definitely an improvement due to the mystic nature of his art style. The story in general is intriguing with some excellent wordsmithing by Oliver and an exciting action sequence. Combine that with the foreboding mystery of the Djinn and you have a book that demands your attention. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Feb 28, 2017

    On the whole,Hellblazer #7 is an uneven issue that has strengths, but plenty of weaknesses. Its not essential reading, but it does its job at establishing the new arc and teases greater things to come. Hopefully Oliver can deliver going forward. Read Full Review

    It didn't seem like a whole lot happened in this issue. It did set up a lot of things for the remainder of the arc, which I will be keeping up with. Unless you are a huge Hellblazer fan, this is not a must read. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 22, 2017

    You can't deny Hellblazer is written well, but this issue is mired in problems from art that's hard to follow to a rushed McGuffin that's hard to care about. I'm curious, but only because you're left with so many questions and no answers. Read Full Review

    Some really interesting, though series incongruentartwork can't cover up the fact that this series is like something stumbling in the dark. And I don't mean anything spooky, either; I mean me at 3 AM in ten year-old underwear feeling my way for the bathroom and hoping I don't grasp a cockroach. I suppose if this was the only issue of the Hellblazer you'd ever read, you might enjoy it. But if you've been following the series as I have, then you're likely wondering if the comic book is secretly slipping you drugs. Read Full Review
