John Constantine, his son Noah, and bodyguard Nat have been blazing a trail across the face of America in their double-decker Routemaster bus, finding themselves on the wrong end of an eruption of supernatural and mystical threats--all thanks to a scattering of Dream's sand. In this anthology-format issue, three particularly memorable run-ins with hitchhikers and drifters on America's roadsides come to the fore...but can Constantine add up their meaning in time to uncover who--or what--is to blame for this rise in terror?

    John Constantine, Hellblazer: Dead in America #5 takes a bit of a detour from the main story but takes the time to remind readers of the major themes the series has been covering. An anthology issue can take a bit of steam out of the main story or seem forced as a way to give the creative team a break but here it feels like the opportunity to cover more ground in a meaningful way. Series like John Constantine, Hellblazer: Dead in America dont come around often and this issue shouldnt be missed. Read Full Review
