5.0 out of 5 stars Sold ma soul, must be saved, 20 Nov 2000
In the course of Constantine's life he has had to battle against many nefarious creatures, turn to the dark powers and spit in their faces more than once. Well now it's payback time, dying of lung cancer the pit fiends gather to drag his soul to the eternal damnation that awaits him. Constantine battles the dark forces whilst seeking a cure all the while knowledge of what awaits driving him on. Not a normal superhero plot, but not a normal super hero. Relying on wits alone, how does he get out of this one?

5.0 out of 5 stars John goes solo, 20 Nov 2000
Originally created by Alan Moore in Swamp Thing, ever popular Hellblazer was given his own long overdue series.
Ably written by Jamie Delano, a stalwart of British comics, we get to know the Silk Cut smoking, trenchcoat wearing lad from Liverpool as he takes on the fiends of hell.
These first issues bring the character out, he's a con-man a liar and cheat but if no one's looking and no one will hear about it then he's apt to save the world.
No super speed or spider bites here, just an honest rogue with nothing but a little magic and his ample wits to keep him alive.
It is because Hellblazer is so normal that this book is a pleasure to read.
