Fantastic art, sketchy splashy expressive inks with a really precise sense of depth and weight. The design of Constantine himself has never looked cooler. The story is just average Hellblazer if you've liked previous stories chances are you'll like this one too.

Yet another Hellblazer by numbers story arc. Very dull and doesn't add anything to the long running story. It's almost as if they've just given up now and just rehash slightly different versions of essentially the same stories over and over. The whole Hellblazer series really needs a breath of fresh air now with a writer brought on board who can come up with an exciting new story line.

Constantine fans - enjoy! 26 Sept. 2011
By UltimateFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of John Constantine and the "John Constantine: Hellblazer" series. Constantine is one of the coolest characters in comics. My favorite Constantine story is probably the original graphic novel, "All His Engines". "Pandemonium" and "Dark Entries" are just two other Constantine stories that are also right up there as being masterful works of horror. This entry is also worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as those others I just touted.

Si Spencer does a really good job of weaving a thoroughly enjoyable "Hellblazer" tale that invokes all of the traits of the John Constantine character that fans love and relish. His sneeringly sarcastic wit, devilish charm, determination, detective skills, magic abilities, and overall James Dean-like cool are all on display here. The plot never lingers too long, always pushing forward and upping the stakes. It's a very brutal story. Not for the faint of heart. There are also twists and turns along the way that keep you glued to your seat. And the story concludes with that classic, triumphant "I got the last laugh" Constantine reversal-of-fortune ending that is what, in my opinion, makes the series so much fun to read.

The art by Sean Murphy is a blend of both house and indie styles. His characters are generally very realistic-looking, yet have a somewhat jagged, skewed, cartoonish appearance to them that has the bloody fingerprints of originality smeared all over them. His style is fresh and unique. It's both highly detailed(which, in this case, leads to some extremely disturbing and gory scenes) and exceptional in its ability to draw your main focus to what is most vital to the scene, allowing you to soak in all the wonderfully illustrated backgrounds without being distracting. Murphy has a definite command of his art.

It isn't perfect, but it's more than worthy of the 4 stars I have given it. In fact, I think it's worth 4 1/2. I also forgot to mention the cool little illustrated prose story at the end of the book by Dave Gibbons of "Watchmen" fame. It only adds to the overall positive experience I had while reading this graphic novel. If you're a fan of Constantine, you should pick this one up. Those of you who are unfamiliar with "Hellblazer" should give this one a try. But be forwarned: once you've had a taste of the character, John Constantine, you can become highly addicted. So be prepared to burn a hole in your pocket trying to get your fix of him through the many other graphic novels he inhabits.

Not my kind of book, but good, regardless. 16 Jun. 2012
By BK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After a car accident that leads to Constantine's hospitalization, two twisted doctors use Constantine's blood to infect the city's inhabitants, effectively demon-possessing them.

"City of Demons" is my introduction to Hellblazer's world and it titles itself appropriately: the book has dark, grotesque, and snippy elements all wrapped up within what I found to be an intriguing plot.

It is a fairly linear story providing minimal twists but strong character work carries it along. The writing is definitely UK and it took some time to adjust but it was a welcome journey. Constantine as a character truly gets established and his reluctant-hero persona is never lost; I finally understand John Constantine's appeal now for I found myself wanting to know more about him page-after page.

Sean Murphy's lively, sketchy art is absolutely stunning. Although there are some over-rendered panels, with tons of crosshatching littering characters' faces, it remains awesome eye-candy that successfully coordinates with the script. Storytelling-wise, there were several unclear panels which forced me to reread the page, but I honestly did not mind for the art looked so great.

Overall, it is a well-written, great-looking tale that kept my full attention until the end.

Coming into the book, I obviously knew Hellblazer is entrenched in dark content, but it personally was a bit too much for me. A handful of "mature-rated" comics line my bookshelf but this one pushed the bar to a far higher level with its cannibalistic images and some sick material one would probably expect from a demonic story.

Objectively speaking, "City of Demons" is a solid, solid standalone graphic novel that kept a Hellblazer newcomer like me interested despite minor flaws with storytelling, art preferences, and occasional loose writing. That being said, this is a city I do not plan on returning to anytime soon.

The ending was a little weak due to mail/editorial issues, but Si Spencer clearly captures the voice of John Constantine.
