The Hellblazer (2016) Issues
John Constantine’s lost weekend in New York City was fun, but London’s where his heart is—only a pissed-off demon and a curse on his soul stand in his way. Even Constantine’s questionable ethics are pushed to the limit when he puts eight million souls on the line to get what he wants…
“The Poison Truth” part five! John’s gotten the djinn off his back, at least for the moment. Now he needs Mercury. As they leave English shores behind, it’s time for a heart-to-heart as Mercury tells John what happened to her while Swamp Thing was battling the Rot.
“The Smokeless Fire” part 1! Constantine once heard a ghost story in a Parisian bar, and maybe the old man wasn’t just telling tales. So he takes Mercury in search of the only man he knows who’s encountered the Djinn. Problem is, they’re not the only people looking!
ÒTHE SMOKELESS FIREÓ part two! Mercury tries to save John from his own worst impulses, but ConstantineÕs got the bit between his teeth on this hunt for the Djinn. A new character emerges from the shadows, an uneasy alliance is formed, John Constantine goes all magician on us and Paris may never be the same again.
ÒThe Smokeless FireÓ part three! Magic is all very well, but in the City of Light John and MisabelÕs hunt for the missing journal has become a battle of witsÑand Constantine may finally have met someone more slippery than he is. Meanwhile, MaridÕs plan moves into LondonÕs corridors of powerÉand an Angel loses his wings.
ÒThe Smokeless FireÓ part five! Constantine thought about taking an old frenemyÕs advice, but Paris has bistros to sit in and wine to drink. With a little patience and a little magic, things have a way of sorting themselves out. Unless Marid crosses the finish line first, that is.
ÒTHE SPIRIT HUNTERÓ part two! Detective Margaret Ames doesnÕt want to think her ex could murder someone, but when you used to date John Constantine, anything is possible. And JohnÕs staying uncharacteristically sober as he tries to absolve himself of the murder he dreamed!
ÒTHE SPIRIT HUNTERÓ finale! John has almost figured out who-or what-killed the clerk in such a gruesome fashion, but heÕs got no idea how to stop their rampage. And now that the villains are literally making his dreams come true, will he have to learn to live with even more regrets?
“THE BARDO SCORE” part one! Another one of John’s magician friends has died—with a smile on his face and the words “thank you” scrawled in his own blood beside him. He wants to nail the killer and get revenge. But it happened in San Francisco so, above all, he wants to go home before he drinks himself to death in that loathsome city.
“THE BARDO SCORE” part two! Things never end well for John Constantine, and his investigation into Cats Molloy’s death is no exception. He couldn’t save Pirate Jenny, either, and he barely escaped a deadly confrontation of his own. So why has San Francisco put a big smile on his face?
“THE BARDO SCORE” finale! John Constantine’s latest foray into detective work is getting uglier every moment. Bodies are falling, there’s a gun pointed at him, and the stupid grin on his face is ruining his studied air of detached cool. Can he con his way out of this one?
“THE GOOD OLD DAYS” part one! John is back home in London, but he’s not happy about it. A crime wave caused by young, aggressive gangsters interrupted his pursuit of Detective Chief Inspector Margaret Ames. Then she started acting strangely and refused to come to him for help…but going to her local priest could be the last mistake she’ll ever make.
ÒTHE GOOD OLD DAYSÓ part two! MargaretÕs association with Father Day is no longer the worst part of JohnÕs return to London. It seems the Church is worried by the rumors of demonic possession, and theyÕve sent someone to investigateÉHelena Bertinelli, the Huntress.
