Booklist Review: "The movie Constantine, in which a miscast Keanu Reeves portrayed the sardonic British sorcerer, may have fizzled, but its comic-book source soldiers on. In the first of the three interconnected stories here, Constantine's disembodied spirit flees through the streets of London, chased by vengeance-seeking demons. The next tale draws Constantine to Bedfordshire, where insane-asylum patients have been possessed by ancient Celtic spirits that begin to take over the surrounding town. The long third story, which will be continued in the series' next volume, takes Constantine and companion Angie Spatchcock to the Amazon rain forest, Iran, and Tasmania on the trail of an ancient magical being known as the Shadow Dog. Carey, the latest scripter to chronicle Constantine's mystic exploits, takes a less character-driven, more action-oriented approach than most of his predecessors. He comes through where it counts, though, capturing the character's cheeky insouciance and conjuring up an imaginative array of menacing monsters for him to battle. The stories are illustrated by a trio of artists; all do justice to the series' dark atmosphere. --Gordon Flagg Copyright 2005 Booklist"
