- Full Description
Written by Garth Ennis (Preacher, Punisher MAX) with art by fan favorite Steve Dillon (Preacher, Punisher MAX). Vol 1 brings together Ennis' entire run for the first time. John Constantine is dying. As a sorcerer literally haunted by the demons of his past, John is no stranger to mystic bedevilment or supernatural horror. But it's his chain smoking that ultimately brings death to Constantine's front door. Between this, and investigations of a grisly serial murderer and strategies against the Lord of Hell, there is no rest for the wicked.
"I'm the one who steps from the shadows, all trenchcoat and cigarette and arrogance, ready to deal with the madness."
I wish I could say something personally about this series--it's always intrigued me, and I love some of the covers. But until now I lacked the time to read it. I do understand that it's gotten several awards and is obviously extremely popular. It was spun off from Swamp Thing and is considered one of the foundation titles of DC's imaginative Veritgo line, which of course includes Preacher and Sandman.
"In 1991, a young writer from Northern Ireland took over Hellblazer--and turned John Constantine's life upside down. Over his four-year run on the book, Garth Ennis crafted dozens of stories that set new standards for comics' horror and dark fantasy genres--including "Damnation's Flame," "Tainted Love," "Royal Blood," "Rake at the Gates of Hell," and "Dangerous Habits," which inspired the feature film Constantine."
"Ennis went on to become one of the most popular and prolific comics writers of his generation, co-creating Preacher, The Boys, Hitman...Now, for the first time, all his original John Constantine stories are assembled here in a single hardcover volume."
Additional illustrators include William Simpson, John Higgins, Peter Snejgjerg, David Lloyd, Mike Hoffman, and Glyn Dillon. This also features a new introduction from Ennis' Hellblazer editor, Stuart Moore.
Also here are 11 pages of covers for various paperback collections and pin-up pages.
Collects Hellblazer #41-50, #52-83, #129-131, Vertigo Jam #1, Hellblazer Special #1, Heartland #1, Vertigo: Winter's Edge #2.
