This book in the Hellblazer series is mostly centered on an old Aztec death god, so expect Constantine to settle his score with a disturbingly hell-ish foe. As usual, his deals are like a double-edged sword: it doesn't do to mess up with him or his friends. The graphics are great, the warm colours are also evocative of Latin America, and the suggested time-travelling sub-narrative adds a little sci-fi to the story. Great hardback, with dustjacket, with a great chiaroscuro cover, I wouldn't have it any other way for this issue of Hellblazer. ( )

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. ( )

A rash of unexplained comas have been happening, and when a little girl that Chas is related to is affected, Chas calls John in and asks him for a favor.

When he starts digging, he finds a demon, and Hell franchising out into the mortal world. It takes a lot of work in LA to sort some things out, as well as a deal with an Aztec death god.

Epigraph
Nor aught availed him now
To have built in Heaven high towers
Nor did he scape
By all his engines
But was headlong sent
With his industrious crew
To build in Hell
