    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jan 22, 2020

    The third issue cements any doubts that this series is something special. An incredible pairing of writer, artist and colorist make this comic one of the best on the shelves at the moment. Simon Spurriers got such a good grasp of what makes John Constantine so great and has populated his world with characters who feel so real they practically jump off the page. Aaron Campbell manages to bring Constantines London to life in the most incredible way. Jordie Bellaires colors have to be amongst the best in the industry and really atmospheric. This is the comic I look forward to most month after month. Read Full Review

    Overall. A fairly strong opening story arc. I look forward to seeing what else Spurrier can come up with. Read Full Review

    John Constantine: Hellblazer's first arc is concluded. It was a tremendously good one to begin with. The cast of artists could not have been a better one since it feels, throughout all three issues which compose this arc, that all the members of this creative team made it together, in the same room with a passion for the project. Now it's official: John Constantine is back and I, for one, cannot wait for more of his stories. Read Full Review

    Lastly, looks like Constantine has a new sidekick in Noah. Seems like a good add. Hopefully, Spurrier doesn't abandon Nat. Feels like she has a lot to offer. Read Full Review

    This is a nice book that is both a callback to when Constantine was good and it also breaks into new territory. It is exactly how I love this character. Let's keep him this way this time. Read Full Review

    if there was any doubt in John Constantine: Hellblazer not being a must read series, the completion of this first arc should convince you that it should be the very first book that you read each week. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Jan 22, 2020

    John Constantine: Hellblazer #3 wraps up the series initial arc in satisfying fashion. Having been absent for the better part of a decade, Simon Spurrier has brought the real John Constantine back, so Joshua Hale Fialkov may one day get his opportunity. But as strong as the writing is, the artwork is even better. Hellblazers artists dont just create a world to look at " it is one that readers experience. Heres to more experiences as the series marches forward. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 22, 2020

    Considering how Constantine seems to be a chaotic agent in the main DCU at the moment, seeing him in this much grimmer, more downcast version can be jarring. But it's a compelling supernatural noir series that seems to have a lot more of a dark and magical London to explore. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi Feb 3, 2020

    If you aren't already reading John Constantine: Hellblazer then you are completely missing out. Every issue this far has been an absolute blast. I am incredibly excited to see where Spurrier, Campbell, and Bellaire take it. You should already have this issue sitting on your coffee table, but if not, pick up a copy immediately at your local comic book shop or wherever you get your comics. Read Full Review
