This particular issue is just a masterpiece. The whole series has been amazing but this just takes it to another level. One of the best single issues I’ve ever read.

John Constantine: Hellblazer #7

By: Simon Spurrier, Aaron Campbell
Released: Jun 24, 2020

How are all those poor British fishermen supposed to keep the French out of their waters? By summoning an ancient merwoman, perhaps? Of course, there's the little matter of what to do with her once she's served her purpose...and what to do about this John Constantine fellow who's come sniffing around to find her himself...

I think that Simon spurrier has become one of my favorite writers in hellblazer, I mean the stuff with the dreaming was good too, but hellblazer is just on another level. I mean he can show us that he can make little ghost stories turn into poetic horror. I can easily say that with this issue, Spurrier made mermaids scary. This is the best run on hellblazer since Brian Azarello’s run, John Const more

This is just a damn perfect issue. There's not much I can really say about this series that would do it justice, aside from praising it as the best series out right now (it is). Not a bad issue. Not even a "good" issue. Everything so far has been phenomenal, and I hope they can keep it up. As for this particular issue, it's just as good as everything before it. The humor is on point, the art is un more

This is a really sad issue. This series has always been really heavy. Maybe it's because it's been so long since we got an issue, but this one hit especially hard. Kieron Gillen is a genius, straight-up.

Half the party is ruling a whole empire. The other half is on the run. Neither has it easy. There is nothing easy in this game, especially when the stakes get shockingly real. The most epic arc of DIE begins as it means to go on: messily.

Yeah, the art's one of the few consistent things about Excalibur. I wouldn't really recommend the series though. Most of the other recent X-Men series are worth checking out, though. Aside from a couple Image series that are on hiatus right now, Hellblazer, and The Immortal Hulk, they're the only things I look forward to reading on a weekly basis anymore.

So... this was a pretty underwhelming finale. Feels like it was written just to finish the story, and not for any sort of artistic reason or to appeal to its audience. Things sort of happen with no weight to them, and I was never interested in anything more than the art.
