Page 45 Review by Stephen

"It's a funny old game."

Soccer, that is. Also, the one John Constantine cannot resist playing at almost every opportunity: poker. Not with cards, necessarily, but John the con is all about getting the measure of his opponent then bluffing or taunting his way to manipulative, sleight-of-hand victory.

I mention the soccer because Al Davison draws that one; the rest is FATALE and CRIMINAL's Sean Phillips walking the high wire without a safety net and wobbling not once. By which I mean he drew straight into inks, no pencils at all and the result is raw, fresh and thrilling. Yes, there are demons but most of the real horror in HELLBLAZER is human: what we do to each other for political gain, personal pleasure or from careless, callous expediency. This results in more interior monologue and casual conversation than almost any other comic, so you bet watching John wince under sunlight or slip in and out of the shadows had better be thrilling.

But you don't need a review of a tenth HELLBLAZER volume, do you? You're either reading this avidly by now or, if you're about to begin, you'll do so with HELLBLAZER VOL 1: ORIGINAL SINS where I've provided everything you need to know to get you hooked, line and sinker.

Gratuitous plug for THE ART OF SEAN PHILLIPS because I'm contractually obliged.

I'm really not.

Here's a link direct to Sean's site for the process involved in this cover. Ta-da! http://theartofseanphillips.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/hellblazer.html
