Product Description


"Astonishing." - Empire Praise for Hellblazer: "The best thing on the UK comics scene since Alan Moore." - SFX Magazine "Constantine's brand of South London suss, arcane knowledge and somewhat dubious morality proved an instant hit with readers." - Melody Maker "John Constantine is the most human character in mainstream comics today... A journey you can't afford to miss." - Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman"

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect introduction 4 Oct 2007
If you want to get into the scary and desperate world of John Constantine this is the perfect introduction. Dangerous Habits is a brilliant story set around an intrinsic aspect of this iconic punk warlock. The theme is habits that kill and John Constantine has a number of them.

A working class magician with a taste in razor edged sarcasm whether it be demon or cockney thug he is up against. This is early doors Garth Ennis establishing that he had what it takes to write Hellblazer. Delano's British new wave horror is still there but Ennis has an empathy for Constantine. This isn't any superhero, this is a scouser in a foreign city getting by on his wits.

Ennis would play the cruelest of tricks with Constantine during the run that these episodes began. But that is still to come.

A perfect introduction to one of the reasons to read comics, John Constantine.

5.0 out of 5 stars New to Hellblazer 11 May 2011
I had never read any Hellblazer before but was interested in getting in to it. It seems this book was the perfect place to start, you immediately get a sense of the character without being bogged down in having to know past stories. This book had me gripped with some excellent writing from start to finish. It is clear to see why they used a lot of the story elements in the Constantine film.

A great addition to my graphic novel / trades collection, I'll be buying more Hellblazer and can only hope the rest are this good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hellblazer: Dangerous Habits 14 Oct 2009
Awesome story line. Garth Ennis took constantine and ran with him as far as he could go. I like to see characters being pushed to their limits and this story certainly does this.
