hellblazer 234.

What the heck — three issues in and Wizard Magazine gives Hellblazer a quote saying, “A must-read. Diggle’s conjuring a spot-on take of Constantine’s character.”

And know what? It feels like it’s a deserved praise. (Diggle’s also the author behind the fan-favorite arc, Lady Constantine) Reading through the recent issues of Hellblazer reminds me of Delano’s run in the 80’s. When it took more than 10 minutes to consume one single issue. Leonardo Manco’s art helps too — (or is it the coloring?) it sort of reminds me of older Hellblazer issues, just losing something in the translation.

After dealing with the undead and regaining “the magic” he lost, (In Ravencroft, no less.) John’s on a lead of street thugs getting possessed to commit crimes that would benefit a land owner.

This issue serves as a setup for the arc, giving hints as to who’s behind the possessions.

I’d give it a solid 5-stars, but the art gets low marks. There are times when Constantine looks … cross-eyed. And that’s most of the comic, forgetting that his character’s appearance was modeled after Sting.

P.S. Planet-X in Trinoma is the best comics place I’ve been to in recent years. Check it out.

4/5
