Format: Paperback
This stand alone episode of Constantine's 'escapades' is the best work Ennis has done on Hellblazer - at least as regards what was published in graphic novel form. Here Ennis stays away from the themes which repeatedly crop up whenever he has anything to do with the supernatural ie his apparent disgust with organised religion and obsession with the notion of a an unjust world 'credited' to a just god.
What he does is give us a well-crafted story of a possessed 'child' -Constantin'e doing - London gangsters and a demon weith humungous reproductive tools.
Fun in a benignly sick way. And not preachy or pretentious either.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Son of Man" a pretty good read 28 Mar. 2007
By T. Hudson - Published on
Format: Paperback
As far as the trade editions of "Hellblazer" go, "Son of Man" is a reasonably strong entry. As always, everyone has their own preferences as to the best writers in the series, but Garth Ennis usually ranks pretty high in general regard. This may not be his strongest entry in the series, but he still manages to write, and with John Higgins' artwork, conjure up some pretty disturbing imagery. Perhaps not quite as strong story-wise as Ennis' work in the Hellblazer trades "Fear and Loathing", "Tainted Love", "Damnation's Flame" or "Rake at the Gates of Hell", especially if you really like the way that Ennis and artist Steve Dillon work together (and, if you do, you should really check out the "Preacher" series by these two. There isn't a bad one in the bunch, and it equals or surpasses their work in "Hellblazer")but a pretty good read, nonetheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Going down, all the way down... 29 Sept. 2005
By N. Durham - Published on
Format: Paperback
Preacher creator Garth Ennis' brief return to writing Hellblazer wound up being this storyarc collected here, which why it may not be his best work on Hellblazer, it's certainly an admirable work. Son of Man finds chain smoking, master of black magic John Constantine struggling to save the life of his best mate Chas Chandler when he's wrongfully implicated in a botched murder, and soon enough Constantine is left to fend off a demonic child, who he resurrected years earlier, with the fate of the world in the balance. Don't pay too much attention to the negative reviews here, Son of Man is worth reading for fans of Hellblazer and Ennis, just don't expect another Dangerous Habits or anything influential (bits and pieces of the overall storyline were supposedly used in the recent, and pretty much not well received, big budget adaptation), but despite all that it's still a more than solid and horriffic tale in the Hellblazer mythos. The only other downpoint of Son of Man is that the art (by Ennis' Pride & Joy partner John Higgins) doesn't suit it too well, but if you can get past that, you'll find some enjoyment here.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best Ennis/Dillon Constantine book. 16 Dec. 2005
By Robert Beveridge - Published on
Format: Paperback
Garth Ennis, John Constantine, Hellblazer: Son of Man (Vertigo, 1999)

Son of Man is not your normal Hellblazer title. For one thing, it's got a strong story arc going all the way through it, and its distractions actually end up being part of the storyline. Go figure! The almost obsessive focus on the story (which comes from a good portion of it being told in flashback) makes this one of the strongest titles in the Hellblazer series, at least during the Ennis-and-Dillon reign.

Chas appears at John's door one evening looking for a place to hide. He is followed all too soon by a pair of very bent cops. Once John's gotten rid of them, he pulls the story out of Chas: he was hired as a getaway driver in an attempted hit on a very powerful crime boss-- one Constantine has had dealings with before.

The Ennis-and-Dillon run of Hellblazer was always a fun series, but it never approached the greatness of, say, Sandman (or Ennis and Dillon's own Preacher). Still, it's always been above average, and Son of Man stands out as one of its strongest moments. Worth it. *** ½

5.0 out of 5 stars Another dose of hell from the chainsmoking bastard 12 Aug. 2004
By Andrés Cuesta Stagg - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jhon Constantine: Hellblazer is probably the best comic book title out there. Constantine is the ultimate antihero, a chainsmoking, trenchcoat wearing, cinical con-man / warlock who can outsmart the devil himself. In this collection we find him (as we often do) confronting sins from his past and trying to save his skin using the trademark amoral methods that define him. I'm a huge fan of the book's writer, Garth Ennis, who captures the essence of the character and builds once again a tale that'll keep you turning page after page. I strongly recommend this book and encourage new readers to look past the commentaries of those who dare write a review after reading a few Hellblazer issues just because they heard there's a movie being made about it. Pick it up, it's a must have. Trust me, you won't regret it unless you have a weak stomach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff! Ennis Rocks! 18 April 2004
By Ryan Thiessen - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've read a couple of Hellblazers here and there, but Son of Man was the first complete story arc I read. I picked it up because I love Ennis's work on Preacher. I have to say that I was throroughly entertained and could not put it down till I read the whole thing. Ennis is a great writer. The story was really twisted but flowed nicely. This book is worth the money.
