The bastard is back. England's legendary street-level sorcerer has returned to his grimy roots with a second lease on life. Which leaves him with just one question-

How the hell did that happen?

Brutally retrieved from a tangle of apocalyptic futures and outright insanity, the working-class magus finds himself restored to the haunted shadows of London, where local gangsters are being shredded by terrifying entities. Their boss wants to hire Constantine to help, and without a penny to his name--and with a gun in his face--who is he to say no?

But this isn't an open-and-shut exorcism. To put this madness back in its bottle, John must work with the man who tried to replace him during his missing years, and confront an impossible power with a horribly familiar face...

One of the DC Universe's most iconic characters comes screaming and swearing back to the comics page in John Constantine- Hellblazer Vol. 1- Marks of Woe , courtesy of infernal talents Simon Spurrier, Aaron Campbell, Matias Bergara, Marcio Takara, and more! Collects T he Sandman Universe Presents- Hellblazer #1, John Constantine- Hellblazer #1-6, and Books of Magic #14.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "DC's conjuring con man returns in a savvy new outing by Spurrier (the 2000 AD series) and artist Campbell (the Green Hornet series). Dark magician John Constantine is back with a (literal) vengeance, released into 2019 and its uneasy era of racist, xenophobic Brexit England. The decline of Britain is the ongoing backstory against several shorter narrative arcs, such as Constantine mentoring a cheery new age conjurer fanboy and investigating a cancer ward cursed by an angel of death, which allow Spurrier to script in the flavor of the best Hellblazer tales.While never subtle, Spurrier's scripts are imaginative and clever; he's as sharp with a horrific scene of demonic possession as he is with a pee joke, and he's got a keen ear for the dialogue of modern Britain, along with ample bawdy humor and sarcastic muttered asides. Campbell's atmospheric artwork captures realistic character design and fantastic, grotesque demons, as well as over-the-top violence. The exemplary coloring work paints London and its inhabitants in suitably grim shades, replete with grit and splattered blood. Hellblazer has been published continuously since 1988, and the series opened critiquing Thatcherism; fans will be pleased by how Spurrier and Campbell's take on contemporary Britain feels as fresh as the original comics.
