Following a chance meeting in a London pub, Constantine finds
himself swept along on the road to Glasgow, Scotland, where
the murder rate is soaring and the most popular diet consists
of cigarettes, whisky and sugar - in other words, a city where
Constantine feels right at home. But things are different
this time. Constantine has been cursed with the worst thing
he can feel: empathy for his fellow human beings...
is the Enemy is
an interesting addition to the Hellblazer series. After
an odd meeting in a pub, our hero is whisked off on an unexpected
journey to help a man to forget the past, and when he does
help him to forget he wishes he hadn't, as all sorts of unspeakable
evils are being raised and someone is constantly one step
ahead of Constantine - leading him a merry dance that will
change his life for good.
looks as though Constantine has finally met his match as we
discover that someone, or thing, has carefully planned for
every contingency. And even when Constantine is aware that
he's heading into a trap he's still not prepared for just
how much trouble someone has gone to to snare him.
only does this collection have an impressive narrative, but
the art is first rate too. It's dark and moody - perfectly
complimenting the author's twisted vision. I also loved the
fact that this graphic novel isn't your typical tale. The
lines of good and evil are blurred here as Constantine unearths
what is going on and there are more than a few twists to keep
you on your toes.
be perfectly honest this is one of the best Hellblazer
collections I've read so far. Well constructed, beautifully
illustrated, what more could fans ask for?
