Back from the dead (or at least from America), John Constantine
has returned to his native England to begin picking up the
pieces of the life he left behind. His usual luck still hold,
though - on arrival he stumbles knee-deep into the black jetsam
of someone else's supernatural power trip, and once again
he's obliged to clean up the mess...
worrying than this occult thuggery, however, is the disappearance
of his niece Gemma Masters, who's turning out to be a bit
too much like her Uncle John for anyone's good. She's not
the first northern girl to follow the siren call of the Smoke,
but she is the only one in recent memory with Constantine
blood - and that's just what London's predators have scented.
Blinded by her own eagerness, Gemma has made herself into
a lever to be used against her uncle - and she's a tool which
the seekers of the Red Sepulchre are only too willing to break.
know I've moaned about it before, but thanks to the new Constantine
movie all Hellblazer books are now unhelpfully being
retitled with the prefix John Constantine. So where
should comic fans look for their fix of Hellblazer
now? Under "H" for Hellblazer? "C"
for Constantine? Or "J" for John? More importantly,
where will our lovely reviews editor stick this on the graphic
novel archive list of reviews?
Sepulchre is an entertaining collection which will not
disappoint Hellblazer, Constantine or John
fans. The art work is impressive (but then I am a huge Steve
Dillon fan) and the writing keeps this tale rolling along
at a decent enough pace.
