Read in October, 2010, read count: 1

The main storyline here, about Constantine's face-off with a serial killer, is fascinating and kind of great -- it's really interesting to see him faced with an entirely different, human kind of fear. We've seen him deadly afraid many times, before and after, but rarely rattled the way he is here.

As with so many of these early Hellblazer collections, the art is lackluster if not plain awful at times. The exception in this collection is Sean Phillips's art for the story "Mourning the Magician," which is also a wonderful little foray into Constantine's family life, and a great reminder that Gemma has always been pretty awesome. The coloring's still hasty and not so great, but otherwise this is a good issue for art and story.
