Tom Taylor makes a decent attempt at John Constantine but it’s just not authentic. The art, dialogue and general feel of this book is very much reminiscent of the dark days of New 52. It’s genuinely hard to understand how the recent Si Spurrier series wasn’t renewed or which John Constantine DC actually want

there's nothing good about this issue, other than a couple jabs at rich people here and there. the art is terrible, the characterization of John feels (unfortunately) more New 52 than Vertigo, with a flaming hand at one point, and glowing sigils on his walls, Lucifer is bastardized once more, disrespecting the fantastic character masterfully written by Neil Gaiman and Mike Carey, and worst of all, more

This series has nothing to do with Hellblazer getting cancelled. This is a mini from black label. trashing this book won't un-cancel the Spurrier book

"this issue presents cops as decent people"???? One is a childhood friend and I would say it presents a couple of characters as decent people. You know that Barry Allen works for the police right? Renee Montoya, Jim Gordon, Maggie Sawyer, Martian Manhunter, the Green Lantern Corps for crying out loud!
