This one may dissapoint those looking for an all-out black magic affair as the main story arc deals with more down-to-earth subjects. However, we are made privy to a big chunk of John's past here, as well as a few short one-shots. Art is somewhat dated but if that bothers you then why not buy your books at a physical store where you can pick them up, flick through, and check the original publishing date.
Not a great first-buy but essential in the big scheme of things, outlining some of John's family background and with a couple of Delano's analagous little one-shots. In my opinion, all of Delano and Ennis' books are worth your time and money. Please ignore the previous comment about Haunted as that is a terrible starting point, not life-changing stuff and potentially very confusing for a first-time reader.
