John Constantine is back in London, back to his old tricks-and just in time, as things have become very dark indeed in his old stomping grounds. A small-time gang lord has found himself dealing with a big-time outbreak of supernatural weirdness...and without any allies to call on and nothing left to call his own, John doesn't have much choice about taking a paycheck from one of London's worst, or accepting the help of one of the gang lord's would-be foot soldiers. But what should be an open-and-shut exorcism turns out to be nothing but...and the author of this madness may just be getting started on their terrible masterpiece! The original Constantine is back in this series from Si Spurrier (The Dreaming) and Aaron Campbell (Infidel), with nothing to his name but decades of bad memories and an unearned second chance. How, exactly, will he squander it? There's only one way to find out...

BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer

I will admit that Simon Spurrier's take on Constantine is definately buried in the roots of the character. But Spurrier manages to do the unthinkable and actually bring our old beloved John into 2019. Under the guise of being in jail, an older Constatine returns to his old neighborhoods to fins the cigarettes cost too much, the pubs are now trendy microbreweries, and all his old mates are gone. This is still the ole smart-arse, bad-arse from Vertigo but there is a bit of vulnerabilty that I appreciate. This is a man that is clearly out of sync with the times. And it is definately a trait that i can appreciate and identify with.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
