After spending a year and a half wandering through the darkest corners of America, John Constantine has returned home! His port of entry is Liverpool, where the decaying landscape and gentle undercurrent of despair match his frame of mind. Of course, no sooner does he set foot upon his native land than he stumbles into a small-time necromancy-and-murder ring centered on his own sisterÕs apartment building. More worrying than this sordid little power trip is the disappearance of his niece, Gemma, whoÕs turning out to be a bit too much like her uncle for anybodyÕs good. In her eagerness to learn the family trade, Gemma has gone to London and fallen in with a bad crowd, and pulling her out means that Constantine will have to join the search for a distinctly nasty magical artifact-one that shouldnÕt fall into anyoneÕs hands, least of all those of the man determined to find it. Critically acclaimed author Mike Carey kicks off his acclaimed run on EnglandÕs legendary magus with JOHN CONSTANTINE, HELLBLAZER VOL. 16: THE WILD CARD, collecting issues #175-188 of the signature Vertigo series and featuring the fan-favorite artistic talents of Marcelo Frusin, Steve Dillon, Lee Bermejo, Doug Alexander Gregory and Jock.

Am Brunnen stand ein großer Hund, trank Wasser dort mit seinem Mund. Da mit der Peitsch herzu sich schlich der bitterböse Friederich; und schlug den Hund, der heulte sehr, und trat und schlug ihn immer mehr. Da biß der Hund ihn in das Bein, recht tief bis in das Blut hinein. Der bitterböse Friederich, der schrie und weinte bitterlich. Jedoch nach Hause lief der Hund und trug die Peitsche in dem Mund. Ins Bett muß Friedrich nun hinein, litt vielen Schmerz an seinem Bein; und der Herr Doktor sitzt dabei und gibt ihm bittre Arzenei. Der Hund an Friedrichs Tischchen saß, wo er den großen Kuchen aß; aß auch die gute Leberwurst und trank den Wein für seinen Durst. Die Peitsche hat er mitgebracht und nimmt sie sorglich sehr in acht.

Acclaimed author Mike Carey concludes his groundbreaking run on London’s working-class magus with JOHN CONSTANTINE, HELLBLAZER VOL. 18: THE GIFT. To restore his mind and save his life, John Constantine was forced to give a day of his life to a she-demon named Rosacarnis. It was a bad bargain, and one that he knew he’d regret—but he had no idea how quickly everything would go straight to hell in its aftermath. Over the course of that single day, England’s savviest street sorcerer lived several lifetimes—and sired three infernal offspring, whose incandescent hatred of him was carefully nurtured by their mother. Luckily for Constantine, the blood he shares with his sulfurous brood makes it impossible for them to kill him outright. Unluckily, his dwindling roster of friends and loved ones enjoy no such protection. And now that war has been declared on all that John holds dear, the lives and souls of his best friend, his ex-flame, his niece and his sister are all fair game for the non-existent mercies of Rosacarnis and her family. Can Constantine defeat his progeny, their mother and their all-powerful grandfather? Or will the so-called gift of fatherhood finally be the death of him? Collects issues #202-215 of the signature VERTIGO series and featuring the artistic talents of Leonardo Manco, Frazer Irving, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Lorenzo Ruggiero.

Features the wrenching finale of Paul JenkinsÕs never-before-collected run on the title, as well as Garth Ennis and John HigginsÕs brutal five-issue coda, ÒSon of Man.Ó For a man as cynical and jaded as John Constantine, thereÕs only one kind of torment for which he is unprepared: contentment. But the fact is (even though he recently cut off a piece of his soul and marooned it in Hell to suffer for his sins), things are actually going pretty well. HeÕs got a new girlfriend that he hasnÕt yet killed or damned or driven insane; his surviving friends and family are, by all accounts, still alive and healthy; and his enemies, for the most part, are either dead or trapped in some form of eternal torment. Not a bad score, overall. Naturally, this means that itÕs time for everything to go up in flames. Because when youÕre as prolific at making enemies as John Constantine is, thereÕs always going to be a few that you donÕt know about, as well as one or two heavyweights who can afford to bide their time. When the two meet, itÕs best to get as far away as possibleÑthe collateral damage alone promises to be as deadly as it is indiscriminate. Collects HELLBLAZER #121-133.

John Constantine knows the secrets of his native England like the back of his nicotine-stained hand. Unfortunately for him, he’s now a world away from that green and pleasant land. Constantine has returned to America, and this time he’s landed in the worst place imaginable: a cell in a maximum-security prison, with a 35-year sentence for murder. Adapting to his new environs will require a steep learning curve, but the world’s greatest magician is nothing if not flexible. In fact, the question that his fellow inmates should be asking is not how this strange-talking newcomer will endure being locked up with society’s worst offenders, but rather how they are going to survive the experience. That’s because Constantine has a few more stops to make on his stateside tour, and, unlike his cellmates, his journey begins in the joint rather than ending there. But when he arrives in the rural town of Doglick, West Virginia, to make personal amends for his crime, what he finds going on behind its closed doors shocks the famously world-weary sorcerer to his hardened, cynical core. Acclaimed writer Brian Azzarello is joined by legendary artists Richard Corben, Marcelo Frusin and Steve Dillon for a terrifying expedition into the darkest corners of the Land of the Free in JOHN CONSTANTINE, HELLBLAZER VOL. 14: GOOD INTENTIONS, collecting issues 146-161 of the signature VERTIGO series together with the nostalgic tale “The First Time” from VERTIGO SECRET FILES: HELLBLAZER.

SOMETHING’S ROTTEN IN THE BIG APPLE… Ever since English occultist John Constantine moved to Manhattan, the city has grown more magical by the day—in a BAD way. The Swamp Thing is out of his element when Central Park itself begins eating the city’s young lovers alive. A demonic infestation has taken over the city’s magical hotspots, forcing the powerful sorcerer Papa Midnite out of his supernatural nightclub and onto the street. And one of hell’s most lethal lords, Neron himself, joins forces with Constantine’s infernal ex to make New York a deadly offer it cannot refuse. Now Constantine must blaze a path through the most perilous places in this world and beyond, from the alleys of New York City to the bright lights of Los Angeles, from the mystical realm of Faerie to the bloody highways of Hell itself. To save his city’s soul—and what’s left of his own—he’ll need to work alongside enemies and allies, magical mistresses and a certain dead man. But how can John defeat evil when even he can’t deny the devil’s dark allure? Co-writers Ming Doyle and James Tynion IV and artists Riley Rossmo, Travel Foreman and Eryk Donovan proudly present CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER VOL. 2: THE ART OF THE DEAL. Collects issues #7-13.
