After reading about the murder of an old girlfriend, Isabel Bracknell, John Constantine decides to try and uncover how she ended up rotting in a filthy squat in Brixton and who it was that decided her time was up. But as he gets closer to piecing together Bracknell's last days, his inquiries earn him a savage warning from the killer to mind his own business...

Haunted is another cracking Hellblazer graphic novel from the twisted mind of Warren Ellis. A world in which the line between good guy and bad guy is blurred - basically a down to Earth comic.

Set in London, Constantine's almost obsessive quest to hunt down Bracknell's killer takes him to some of the more undesirable areas of the once great capital city. There are some fairly graphic images, including the death of two hired thugs who play chicken with a tube train - and lose.

Portraying London as a dirty, uninviting city, John Higgins' illustrations capture vividly some of the more undesirable locations in the Big Smoke. Not only that, but Ellis goes on to explain how most of our precious capital city is built on rotting corpses - nice thought. And it is these souls which are dragging London's spirit down.

An engaging story and some beautiful artwork make this a must for serious comic book collectors. Simply magic.
