The specter of his older self (and the terrible bargain he made to get another chance at life) has been playing a cat-and-mouse game with John Constantine for months now-but now the game is over, and it’s time to get down to business. Namely, the business of destroying absolutely everything that made that second lease on life worth living…

    This issue should come with a disclaimer, not for the faint of heart. An exceptionally tense issue in an exceptionally good Hellblazer run, this issue will have fans talking for weeks. Spurrier shows us yet again what a masterful storyteller he is, and how incredibly well suited he is to dabble with the Hellblazer mythos. If ever a writer and a series were a natural pairing this is it. Bergara takes readers expectations for the style of story he’s telling and flips it around completely, showing us he’s more than capable of telling darker and more horrifying stories.

    Spurrier, along with Bergara and Bellaire, have crafted yet another fantastic issue of Constantine. At this stage these reviews are starting to sound like manifestos on why John Constantine: Hellblazer should continue. This isnt just a good run; this is one of the best Constantine runs of all time. Spurriers name deserves to be up there with the greats from the Hellblazer years. The fact that the series is ending earlier than all of us would have liked is irritating even as the issues continue to top review aggregate sites. Read Full Review

    John Constantine: Hellblazer #10 is a stunning issue on every level. Constantine is faced with his greatest and most destructive challenge: his future self. After this issue, nothing can be the same. The bottom line is this isnt a series you should read; it's a series you need to read. Read Full Review

    That's the one good thing about Spurrier and Bellaire's ending coming so early. They should have some room to put Constantine in a rough spot for a long time since it seems like the character could be on the bench for a while " aside from potential DC Black Label stories outside of continuity.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 29, 2020

    Matias Bergara has an interesting visual style and that style is perfect for this story. There are some moments that feel muddled visually, but the rest of the story has a great feel and weight to it. Read Full Review
