story has a lot going for it. The plot keeps you guessing
until the end - will Constantine be able to free the young
girl? Or will she be imprisoned for ever? Okay, while it's
pretty obvious that Constantine always manages to win through
in the end, this collection will still keep you on your toes.
only is All His Engines a damn fine tale, but the reproduction
job that has been lavished on this graphic novel is also something
to behold. Firstly this paperback edition has some of the
best quality paper stock you are likely to see in a graphic
novel release - nice thick glossy pages are always a welcome
you are a Hellblazer fan, then you are not going to
want to miss out on this collection.
