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.

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
