Impressive, in a cruel and gruesome way. We get to learn the origins of Papa Midnite, rising from simple fraudster to the present king of voodoo. He's had a lot to sacrifice along this journey, but such is the price of greatness.

In this mini-series diversion from J. Constantine, you can learn the origins of Papa Midnight. The story is gruesome and painful, linked the the history of slavery in the U.S. (think Hellblazer meets Django unchained)

I was slightly disappointed with the character development of the story. Midnight begins the historic tale as a trickster manipulating and mistreating the people around him including slave and owner alike. Aside from a brief and intense outpouring of emotion in one scene, the author

I really wanted to like this more because Papa Midnite is such a great character, but...

Täiesti mõttetu spinoff täiesti mõttetust Constantine'i saaga alguspoole tegelasest. Neegrite mäss kuskil Ameerika Ühendriikide alguspäevil 1740 või midagi, blablabla. Totaalne igavus, mõttetus kuubis, ja lisaks on pliiatsijoon nagu lasteaialastele mõeldud. Kaks miinus.

A great story overall - an origin story of the Papa Midnite character, with a focus on slavery and vengeance. Not quite what I had expected, but a great read, and one I couldn't put down.

Hellblazer meets Django Unchained. It's a history lesson about slavery that doesn't let modern-day America off the hook and a nice spotlight for one of Hellblazer's best characters.

It's about time you knew about papa. It's an interesting story about slaves in New York and who their struggle to be free enslaves others. It has some funny moments (specially from a Constantine).

Miniserie especial recopilada en castellano. Todavía no se sabe si ECC la reeditará en la nueva colección de 17 libros o de algún otro modo.

Interesting miniseries prompted by the character's appearance in the Constantine movie (like many characters before him, he's given a makeover to better match the movie version), telling of his involvement with a black Manhattan Spartacus. If Barack Obama wins the presidential election, will we see a sequel showing the effect that has on Papa Midnite?

Papa Midnite is a messed up dude. I guess it is hard to judge someone who survived the civil war. We cry in recessions when we should be glad we did not live during the civil war. Fuck that, living paycheck to paycheck aint that bad when you think of ancestors and what they had to go thru! Peace everyone. Hope my Reviews help!

So sad. The art is mediocre, the storyline is interesting enough, but they could have done so much more with Papa Midnight as a Hellblazer character. And he just looked cooler when he was fatter.
