‘John Constantine: Hellblazer #7’ (review)

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

 

This title has a nice feel to it.

It actually is reminiscent of the old Vertigo line of comics. Writer Simon Spurrier has given us a John Constantine that doesn’t apologize for who he is and the results are fascinating.

I haven’t loved any comic called Hellblazer like this in a real long time.

The opening of this comic has John Constantine going to Billingsgate Market. I have to say, artist Aaron Campbell is only getting better with each issue. The atmosphere he creates at the market immediately hit me. You can almost smell the raw fish, it is that good.

But Constantine isn’t there to go food shopping.

He comes across a worker cutting some fish. I was intrigued to find out just what Constantine was after. He starts talking about monkfish. He starts spinning some stories.

Constantine is after something else.

And the mystery of what he wants starts to unravel.

We start to find out there there is a battle between British Fishermen and the French fishermen. The British have summoned an ancient merwoman. Constantine starts to piece it all together. And some truly horrifying things start to happen.

The story is fantastic. Simon Spurrier does another fine job with the story and the dialogue. The artwork is brilliant. This is going to be a classic team for this title.

It has been a completely awesome book and the whole thing just feels right.

RATING: A
