Whoever thought of paring Constantine with Ian Rankin deserves a medal of some sort because this was genius! I was always going to read this from the moment I knew about it and that was even before I discovered that the plot is a fabulous mechanism to subvert that most loathesome of TV genres: reality programming.

Ranking spins a grippin yarn with some great twists as well as hitting Constantine's gruff, hard-boiled but troubled, smartarse personality right on the head. Some of the dialogue is simply superb and the writing had me turning the pages almost too quickly to admire the nicely fitting artwork.

Great for fans of Constantine and for anyone who's a follower of Rankin, this might just be a gateway into a larger world of comic book goodness!
