The world-maybe even the universe-is in big trouble this time, as a distant star threatens to destroy all we know. Who can save us? Could it be Hawkman? The Flash? The Justice League? Perhaps NASA can stop this catastrophe. Otherwise, we might need to ask Sixpack, Dogwelder and the gang to intervene, and the only legit hero who will even admit to knowing them is Constantine-and he's been kind of a jerk the whole time they've known him.

    Some great gags and a little inside baseball make for an entertaining read, though the story moves along incrementally. More soul-bearing by Sixpack, more poking fun at John Constantine, and a whole lotta silliness. This is probably the calm to the last issue's storm, and the book looks great so it's always a quality buy. But I do think this was paced correctly, since I'm about ready for it to end.

    I'm still waiting on an issue that makes me laugh as hard asI did in Issue 2. I have to say seeing Sleeping Beauty's evil step-mother withJohn narrating made me smile pretty hard. Dogwelder is such a weird characteryou don't really know how to feel about him. Maybe if you saw his face hewouldn't seem so ominous. I also swear John was more British this issue than hewas before. Its cool to see this grumpy British chap lead this band of misfitsand a quest to save the world. It's never not interesting. It kind of feels likewatching "Always Sunny" because it's agang full of dysfunctional people getting into hijinks. Excited how thisspace adventure turns out. Read Full Review

    Maybe I am too stupid to understand what Ennis is doing here. Maybe, I just need someone smarter than me to explain it, but I do not get it. I dont get why this is funny. You do not like that Hellblazer is now part of the main DC universe and not in Vertigo anymore. Okay. Right. I see the point. It was funny in the first issue, but now, it is just frustrating.
