really liked it

The unthinkable comes to pass and John Constantine finally ties the knot. Along the way, the reader is treated to quite a few faces from John’s past, including former flames Kit Ryan and Angie Spatchcock, Shade the Changing Man, the demon Nergal, and the parts of himself that John banished to Hell. And, through the power of time travel, Epiphany and Constantine both get to spend some time with John’s much younger self...with wildly different results.

Despite the fact that I’m still not sold on Epiphany as a match for John, at least she knows what she’s getting into. And I have enjoyed this collection and its predecessor, “India” more than a lot of the issues in recent history. It will be interesting to see how marriage changes John, and if Epiphany can put up with being Mrs. Constantine. Or whether she will exit through the usually tragic means that seem to find anyone John is remotely attached to.
