John Constantine...

...is a bastard. And Hellblazer is simply one of the nastiest and darkest pieces of work that's ever been out there. I just wrapped up Hard Time & Good Intentions, and it never ceases to amaze me how every Hellblazer book leaves me with a pit in my stomach, everytime.

Sadly, Azarello's run seems to have very little magic - but that did not stop it from being dark and gruesome, or simply deeply disturbing in the typical style that John's become famous for. However, I still like Garth Ennis better - he's a little more cheerful. Well, as cheerful as John ever would be, anyway.
