    Well done to Justin Jordan and company for turning in another excellent issue of "The Curse of Brimstone" and I hope this isn't the beginning of the Swan Song for Brimstone. Read Full Review

    The Curse of Brimstone Annual #1 was a memorable set of stories told. With Brimstone coming to an end, we learned so much about this situation that will help us with the final farewell to come next month. Read Full Review

    If you have been reading along, you likely can guess that Justin Jordan does a very solid John Constantine and Swamp Thing. What's more is that Joe and Annie's panic and incredibly serious approach to everything plays beautifully off of the crass, casual Constantine. Read Full Review
