In this stand-alone graphic novel, John Constantine once again finds himself dealing with demons in the hope of saving a child (and possibly the world). When his friend Chas's niece falls prey to a mysterious illness that puts her in a coma, Chas turns to Constantine for help. Constantine quickly discovers that this is more than a normal illness; something seems to be robbing people of their souls. The trail leads the pair to Los Angeles, and culminates in Constantine pitting several uppity demons against an Aztec god of the dead.

I very much enjoyed this; it's a pretty classic Hellblazer storyline, of course, but Carey puts some new twists on it, and Manco's artwork is (as usual) excellent. It'd be a good introduction to the comics for someone who hasn't read them, especially since it has a good overview of Constantine's history in the back.
