    Reading the issue for the first time, I was torn between so many sentiments and reactions. The style reads like classic Hellblazer in the best way with monsters that defy visual definition, providing terrifying impressions over clean lines. Read Full Review

    What more can be said? This is THE issue for Simon Spurriers Constantine. This is the one to show your friends to get them back into comics. Or to show them what Black Label is about at DC. Or to give that family member that says something uncomfortable about the NHS. This is what comics can be and it should be read. Read Full Review

    Hellblazer's latest issue is required reading. It's a thoughtful and timely meditation on the nature of hate that commands the reader's attention until the very last panel. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jun 2, 2020

    An incredibly powerful comic, incredible writing, and current global events make it resonate incredibly strongly. If you haven’t been reading this run on Hellblazer do yourself a favour and go pick it up at once. You won’t regret it. The writing, the art, the colours, all three are out of this world.

    It felt like Jamie Delano was writing the book again, it was that good. The art by Aaron Campbell is equally impressive. They really hit all the right notes with this story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 11, 2020

    In short, John Constantine: Hellblazer #6 is an excellent example of Hellblazer in the classic mold, impressing with it's art and complex storytelling while depressing me as I realize how little has changed since 1988. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi Jun 13, 2020

    John Constantine: Hellblazer #6 (Spurrier, Campbell, Bellaire) is visually terrifying with writing so relevant that it is even scarier. Spurrier, Campbell, and Bellaire offer a great Constantine issue that is meant to be read this very moment. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland Jun 3, 2020

    The only drawback I have for this issue is that while it's definitely supposed to be dark and mysterious, there are certain panels when the spirit/ghost/demon is doing its thing, and I can't really make out much on the page outside of red streaks and what resembles a face. It would take me out of what was otherwise a well-written and well-drawn book. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Jun 3, 2020

    Bergara's art fits well with the introduction of Tommy Willowtree, but Campbell's capture Constantine's presence a bit more; that dingy feel. Still, I like that DC has alternated artists in the first few issues " typically that bugs me. But the tone changed from issues #1-3 to #4 and 5, and now we see it again in #6. All that being said, Constantine belongs in the dark, so hopefully he stays there for a little while longer. Read Full Review
