FINAL ISSUE
John Constantine faces his final reckoning with the older version of himself who’s been seeding magical chaos all around England, while the lives of all his friends hang in the balance…and that is not a good situation for John Constantine’s friends. Can the evil in John’s heart ever be contained? Or will it reach out and destroy the one life he would give anything not to corrupt?

    Though John Constantine: Hellblazer has ended its run, it is safe to say readers will find themselves returning to it frequently. Simon Spurrier was the only possible person to wrangle what will for sure be a quintessential run out of this chaotic year. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Nov 24, 2020

    This isn’t a comic to be on the fence about buying. This is a comic you NEED to get down to your local comic shop and pick up at once. This run of Hellblazer is amongst the best there is, and Spurrier delivers a finale that is perfect. This run of Hellblazer isn’t just amongst the best comics of the year, or the decade, this is an all time great, and this finale is the best of an excellent bunch. The writing, the art, the colours, it’s impossible to imagine a greater creative team coming together or producing a better story. BUY THIS COMIC. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Nov 24, 2020

    JOHN CONSTANTINE: HELLBLAZER #12 cements this series' place as one of the greatest titles to come out of DC Comics. While this creative team might have had to rush their finale, they did so tactfully and beautifully. This is a must-read finale to a must-read series. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Alex McDonald Nov 25, 2020

    With issue twelve Spurrier rounds out his nigh on perfect run with John Constantine. Along with simply spectacular artwork from Aaron Campbell and stunning colours by Jordie Bellaire, the team have crafted an issue (and series) that is sure to be remembered for years to come. Its a shame it had to end at all. Read Full Review

    I also really enjoyed how Constantine went about setting the bait for his older self. Overall. This is a satisfying conclusion to what has been a great 12 issue run. In fact, I'd love to see this done as an animated movie at some stage. Read Full Review

    Aaron Campbell lays out some beautifully dark and visceral imagery throughout this issue. Everything looks great and is filled with a darkness that matches the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    If you're looking to learn more about Constantine as rumors surround the character's big-screen presence, this is a series you should read. If you like the character, but haven't been pleased with how he's been written in recent years, this is a series you should read. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Nov 25, 2020

    This treatise on guilt is bound to read well in a single collection and there was sufficient space to make this final issue hurt, even as it's apparent that it arrived long before it was planned or needed. John Constantine: Hellblazer remains the best statement on the character and themes of Hellblazer since the original series ended. Read Full Review
