‘John Constantine: Hellblazer #2’ (review)

Written by Simon Spurrier
Art by Aaron Campbell
Published by DC Comics

 

This version of John Constantine is the closest to the Constantine from the Vertigo universe. It is a nice feeling seeing this. The creative team really has gone to great lengths to get Constantine as close as possible to the one I remember and that other people remember. They have really done a great job.

John Constantine has returned to London!

Of course, the whole thing has turned into a bloody mess quite quickly! A street gang has coerced John into helping them out. They have a meeting with Constantine to begin the issue and to give him some facts.

And then, off into the world he goes!

John starts having some crazy dreams at this point.

Apparently, angels are going around London tearing people apart. John is on a collision course to go find them and confront them.

He meets a friend and makes a frightful discovery. Apparently, all of these angels are inspired by the writing of William Blake.

John gathers some intel. He goes from place to place to get some clues on how to defeat these angels. It leads him to some really dark places. Spurrier doesn’t hold back. He gives us a true horror book with some amazing imagery.

And the imagery! Aaron Campbell has come a long way. Man, his work is truly inspired here. He is a perfect horror artist and his work fits this book like a glove. This is another fine issue here!

RATING: A-
