Review by -Eva-
John Constantine is one of my favorite characters in literature, mainly because he manages to be such a genuine bastard at the same time has having a staunch set of morals. Not that being a nasty character is a great thing, but because it makes him more real than had he been a nice guy. Also, most of his battles are "fought" with cunning and smarts rather than with magic spells, which is a huge amount of fun to read, especially since Constantine is a master of the sarcastic remark. The <i>Hellblazer</i> issues included are "Sex & Death" where Constantine realizes he's been cast into the astral dimensions by the Swamp Thing and takes the opportunity to make Zed useless to the Resurrection Crusade before heading back to his own body, "Newcastle: A Taste of Things to Come" which is the story of Newcastle and when everything went awry with Astra, "The Devil You Know" where Constantine gets an unexpected message from Ritchie Simpson and uses him to get to Nergal, "On the Beach" where Constatine's mind bring him to a calm beach where a nuclear accident happens and horrors literally fall from the sky, "The Bloody Saint" where Constantine is discharged from Ravenscar and meets an old friend from his musical past and the story segues into one of King Arthur (as a magus) and Merlin, "Venus of the Hardsell" which is a music video by Mucous Membrane, and "Antarctica" where Constantine takes on the services of a dominatrix and then goes to find a beautiful (but dangerous) refugee from war-torn Mozambique.
