A new Constantine series and Gotham Academy returns!
Constantine: The Hellblazer #1
The dark adventures of DC’s foremost occult detective continue in an all-new series as he investigates the cruelest case he’s ever come across—his own dark history!
The return of my favourite mage – and in a form to that fans of Hellblazer will recognise! This is a nice kick off, with hat-tips to those who have read the Hellblazer series, the Constantine series, or even those who saw the TV series (me, all three!) This is a nice introduction for new readers too! The art is scratchy and rough – in keeping with the tone of the series – as is the language! I’m holding out high hopes for this series, and am looking forward to seeing the tone and stories it covers!
Gotham Academy #7
Special guest student Damian Wayne drops by the academy—and he is not pleased to meet his new classmates!
The return of Gotham Academy after it’s brief hiatus strengthens its links with Batman and the Waynes. Damien is an integral part of this done-in-one story here, with a good look for new readers at the main characters, the school and the situations we can come to expect coming up!
The art is unique and fun to read – with the dark tones mixing well.
The mix of magic/superstition and science was especially well done here!
