It's 1785 England, and Johanna Constantine is a young woman
with a knack for the impossible, a taste for the good life
and a knowledge of the dark arts. When promises of wealth
and power are dangled before her, she accepts a dangerous
assignment for king and country to retrieve a mysterious ancient
chest, now lost deep at sea. But hidden forces move against
Johanna seeking the box for their own deadly purposes. In
the frozen northern wastes, the quest becomes a desperate
race against time with Johanna facing certain death and damnation
if she loses. And a far worse fate if she wins...
an interesting spin on the Hellblazer series. Johanna
Constantine and her sidekick Mouse, are on a quest to make
Constantine into a Lady, with land and a regular income from
His Majesty's government. They want her to retrieve a box
that has been buried at sea, but this is no ordinary quest.
box that Constantine must retrieve is host to unspeakable
evils that, if set lose, will lay waste to mankind. But, luckily,
Constantine has a plan that, fingers crossed, will mean that
the demons stay trapped, the King gets his treasure, and she
gets to become a lady. But obviously it's not going to be
as easy as all that. There are others interested in the box,
and they will do whatever it takes to retrieve it.
the way, Constantine enlists the help of Swamp Thing. What
power has she over him? Well, she knows the name of the person
who killed his family. If he helps her acquire the box, she
will give him the name he has desired for so long.
I'm a big fan of the John Constantine series of Hellblazer
comics, I really loved this spin-off creation. The writing
is intelligent and the illustrations are impressive.
you are a Hellblazer fan or not, this is a great stand
alone story that will leave you wanting more.
