While this didn't quite pack the same punch that Dangerous Games did, it still had a lot of great stuff going on and seems to be gearing up for something big. Also it amuses me to no end that Ennis is apparently not allowed to write the word 'fuck' because we're still under the main DC imprint at this point which leads to John substituting 'frig' a lot While this didn't quite pack the same punch that Dangerous Games did, it still had a lot of great stuff going on and seems to be gearing up for something big.

Take a drink every time someone gets called a 'frigger' lol I think a lot of what I enjoyed about this volume were the side-characters. In Delano's run all of the side characters felt very flat to me and seemed more just like props that were used to further John's story, but with Ennis they are more well-rounded individual people. There's a really great bit at the beginning where John is fighting this guy and she just comes in and saves his dumb ass. Also she does things like this: Amazing.
Series by cover
Basically their whole relationship is like John doing his whole usual 'oh I'm such a lonely loner. Also it's nice that Ennis seems to realize how ridiculous John's character archetype actually is and will poke fun at it like this.
There's a Christmas Special that was actually surprisingly enjoyable considering I hate Christmas. And the 50th issue had some really great full page illustrations with flashbacks thrown in there. Also some weird stuff with the King of the Vampires that I assume is going to come into play later And also!! Issue 51!!! The issue where a guest writer comes by to casually make Constantine bisexual with a throwaway line!
I know nothing really comes of it for a long time but it's just really great : There's two 'main' story lines in this volume. The first [issues ] was honestly a bit boring to me, mostly because the 'rich weirdos sex and murder club' thing has been done to death [I guess maybe it hadn't been at the time it was published, but you know I'm reading it 25 years later so]. It was really one of those 'classic' Ennis stories where it seems like he's just trying to see how 'outrageous' he can be but there were some great panels in there, like this: Then there's a mini-story [issues ] that's basically a set-up for the next volume I think but had some really great stuff in it.
Also have to say that I really like Ellie too! Anyway this was more of the First of the Fallen and I liked how this time they referenced the stuff that was going on in Sandman at the time since before I was trying to figure out how these other demons fit in with Lucifer and everything. Also issue 60 is literally a Preacher prequel so that was really cool as well.
I never knew that Ennis set up Preacher while he was still doing Hellblazer. Anyway, it's just nice when you can fit all the different Vertigo titles together like that. Really looking forward to the next volume, although I might take a break and try to do a Preacher reread.
I was wanting to do one before the end of the year but got sidetracked and this might have been the boost I needed. View 2 comments. It doesn't matter. If you do get some life philosophy thrown at you, it isn't dull or too long. Someone's decided an old pub should be burned to the ground and the owner ends up dead too. What they didn't know is that her late husband never left, but watched over her until that night.

In Lord of the Dance an 3. In Lord of the Dance and Remarkable Lives Constantine encounters two very different paranormal beings, leaving one of them mad as hell. Counting to Ten is a weird little story where nothing except a strange phone call happens. It is like a small episode in an already weird life of John Constantine. This is the Diary of Danny Drake has a very satisfactory ending. Danny Drake has a problem - he can't seem to stop telling people everything, and I mean everything, about himself.
The story introduces an interesting demoness. Mortal Clay and Bloody and Soul : modern day resurrectionists and revenge.
This three part story finds Constantine helping star-crossed lovers - a demoness and an angel, and tricking another big bad demon not for the first time. Jun 12, Arnis rated it liked it.

The pencilling is done by William Simpson a serviceable but somewhat unspectacular artist — his lack of background detail removes some of the depth of the world Constantine inhabits except where noted.
As much as I have enjoyed Jamie Delano's character defining contribution to the "Hellblazer" series, reading Ennis' work on the series was a very welcome breath of fresh air, as h "Hellblazer, Vol 6: "Bloodlines"" collects the individual issues 47 to 61, all of which are written by Garth Ennis. As much as I have enjoyed Jamie Delano's character defining contribution to the "Hellblazer" series, reading Ennis' work on the series was a very welcome breath of fresh air, as he sheds the heavy handed type prose that Delano resorted to a bit too often, replacing it with sharp and witty dialogue, as well as gallows humour.
Not only Ennis' writing maintains Constantine's traits and the series depth but further develops them through character defining moments and arcs. And even if none of the stories featured in this particular collection are not as good as his Dangerous Habits" arc, it's all pretty solid stuff. The pencilling in the first issue is by William Simpson and the second issue by Mike Hoffman.

During Christmas an old divinity feeling pretty bummed makes itself know to Constantine, who takes him for a night out in the town in order to restore his faith on humanity. It reads a bit like a filler story but it is entertaining nonetheless. If that sounds a bit uninteresting think again. There is the same otherworldly hellish atmosphere and urban horror feel that is often found in his work. It has the added bonus of featuring great art by David Lloyd.

Despite featuring great interaction with Chas and a good deal of sharp dialogue and humour, its concept is somewhat dull and its paper-thin story is a bit overstretched. It concerns a corporation that is resorting to body-snatching for ballistics testing. The pencilling is by Steve Dillon 6. We also get the sense that John is plotting an offense on the First of The Fallen as well.
Aug 11, Portia S rated it really liked it Shelves: graphic-novels. Disclaimer: This review does not make sense. There were several stories within this volume, but the one that really stood out to me was "Royal Blood" mainly because through this story we managed to come full circle. For this we have to explain some things, I guess. Alan Moore wrote the graphic novel From Hell with artist Eddie Campbell,which tells the tale of Jack the Ripper from both Moore's imagination and some historical sources.
It basically runs on the plot that Queen Victoria's grandson, Pri Disclaimer: This review does not make sense. It basically runs on the plot that Queen Victoria's grandson, Prince Albert Victor "Eddy" had married and fathered a baby girl with a shop girl of the East End, Annie Crook, who was unaware of her husband's royal heritage. The news of this heinous and potentially damaging marriage had spread to the Queen who in turn separated the couple by having Annie placed in an asylum where she then instructed her physician Sir William Gull to lobotomize the girl to impair her sanity.
Annie's friends, a group of prostitutes, learn of what has happened to their friend and her daughter and attempt to blackmail the family in order to pay off a group of thugs who are threatening them. However, word of this comes to the Queen and she once more enlists Gull to take care of the problem.
He brutally murders the five girls. He is caught in the end by Inspector Frederick Abberline who had been investigating the Ripper crimes, however, since the murders are under Royal supervision, it is all covered up and no one knows to this day who actually committed these crimes. The flow of the story was inspired by Stephen Knight's theory that Jack the Ripper's murders were part of a plot to conceal the existence of Prince Eddy's ill conceived child. This theory has apparently been debunked numerous times, but I think it's still incredibly fascinating.
Fast forward to London, where the city is being ravaged by a man possessed by a demon who has a taste for fresh, innocent human brains and entrails. Constantine is forced to assist on this end. Let's step back again to see the connexion I am poorly trying to make, it's cool connexion though.
