A so-so story starring a sanitized Constantine. Not great, but it could have been much worse. ( )

A reasonable start to a series and one that doesn't hide Constantine's Machiavellian tendencies. In fact, it sort of rubs it up the wrong way & Rams it down your throat. He isn't an anti hero to sympathise with and this isn't a story for those that like their hero s clean and white and charming. He's arrogant, manipulative and esoteric, but if you're interested in your heroes hard boiled, morally grey and interacting with a sort of Street urban fantasy then this might be for you. ( )

I haven't read any of the previous Constantine comics so I have nothing like that to compare to. What did fly through my head sometimes while reading this was that this is what Dark Dresden would be like and I kinda like that.

This isn't the best comic series around but it was a good read and I'll continue picking up the monthlies for awhile longer. ( )

It's certainly no Hellblazer, but it's not terrible either. There's magic, and exploitation of others, and failed relationships, so that's fairly standard. Basically a younger Constantine, stripped of his 70s punk rock politics and moved out of London... So, who is this character again? ( )
