This is probably the darkest and most unpleasant graphic novel from DC I've read to date, but it is also one of the funniest. The horror aspect known from Hellblazer is matched perfectly with the humour from Constantine and his mate Chas. This is a wonderful comic.
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.
