John Constantine's story has always been draped in noir trappings, but Azzarello takes the hardboiled elements further than most. On the surface, the American setting and underworld focus of his run invite lazy comparisons to 100 Bullets. However, it turns out Azzarello's no slouch at this horror thing, either. In this volume, he delivers a trio of tales that each reveal a different side of John's dark world.

In the opening one-shot (art by Steve Dillon), an overhead conversation sheds light on a

I stopped reading and buying the regular Hellblazer comicas with issue 133, the Son of Man storyarc.
Reading theses stories on a monthly basis didn't have all that hold and the interest just sort of faded.

I've recently started buying the trades of the stories that follw and reading them that way.

The stories are much better when being read as a whole.

In Hellbazer: Freezes Over, you've got 3 short stories. All 3 are so full of plot-holes that you could probably fit a VW Bug right thru em. But, ya k

Definitely a great Hellblazer collection. The main story arc, "Freezes Over," is a neat, self-contained story about a group of travellers snowed in at a roadhouse -- including, of course, our buddy Constantine. I don't know if it's quite what I mean, but I kept thinking that it was kind of like if the Coen brothers ("Fargo") did John Constantine. It's just a cool story, very neatly done, where everything is not what it seems.
"Lapdogs and Englishmen" is both hilarious and unsettling. We get treat

Azzarello's Constantine is a very creepy guy. He really rubs people the wrong which is fine as that's what makes him stand out in this particular run.

One goes in thinking there's going to be some magic and mysticism, but instead its an analysis of the human nature in the seediest corners of the country.

Jällegi maiteamitmendat korda lugedes tundus oluliselt parem kui esimest. Mõrvamüsteerium/krimithriller lume poolt suletud teeäärses kõrtsis oli hea. Veel parem oli aga "Sandman Mystery Theatre'st" tuttava joonega külalisartisti Guy Davise poolt joonistatud kaheosaline "Lapdogs & Englishmen". Azzarello residentkunstniku Marcello Frusini stiil aga hakkab järjest rohkem pinda käima - eriti see Constantine'le iga lehekülg vähemalt korra joonistatud altkulmu "saatanlik" irve, millega ta justkui ...more

It looks like Constantine has taken up the reins of justice, and is working at righting some wrongs in this collection. The question is: whose wrongs is he righting? They don't seem to be his own (for once), but I doubt that the shady guy he met in the bar is really pulling the strings. But why would Constantine bother do to what he's told? He must owe someone big time, because this is totally out of character for him. Hopefully they explain everything at some point in the next set of comics.

As I have said before, I am not a fan of graphic novels. However, I rather enjoyed this one. The artwork was not as dark or campy as some others I have seen and between chapters the artist provides a more lifelike drawing of the characters. The book contained three stories, the second of which I enjoyed very much. I would read others in this series.

The first story, "The Iceman Cometh" is beautiful; pure Constantine psychological thriller. The art is a bit Neuvo for my tastes, but it's pulled off well. I had to actually read this one a few times to get all the subtle nuances, very nice. The second story is also damn good Constantine, art more to my liking, and a very smart story.

Everything came together in this collection. Constantine, when done correctly, is that perfect scary, charismatic bastard of an antihero that warms the cockles of black hearts the world over.

Azzarello's writing just seems off half the time and I do not care for his endings. I think he tries too hard to impress.

This feels like the first collection of Azzarello's run that feels really true to the character.

My favorite of his stories. A little touch of panic, lore, and murder.
