EBOOK è John Constantine Hellblazer Volume 1 Original Sins ê Jamie Delano

John Constantine Hellblazer Volume 1 Original SinsJohn Constantine is an unconcerned somewhat amoral occultist with a British working class background He's a hero of sorts who manages The fact that so many of these reviews say something along the lines of It's not as good as the movie or Too much political commentary and the art is dated just goes to show that some people comic book readers in particular are interested solely in watching entertainment with eyes glazed over Others are interested in learning something and seeking literary substance Most comics merely provide the former so just let us have a few intelligent comics without complaining that they wouldn't make a good moviePhew Enough of that rant This wasn't the best volume of Delano's run see Hellblazer Vol 4 The Family Man or Hellblazer Vol 3 The Fear Machine but it still struck me as far superior to most mainstream comicsPS Anyone who thinks Keanu Reeves' portrayal of John Constantine was better than the original Sting look alike of the comic has no room to complain that the colourist sometimes changed his eyes from blue to green

PDF æ BOOK John Constantine Hellblazer Volume 1 Original Sins ✓ John Constantine is an unconcerned somewhat amoral occultist with a British working class background He's a hero of sorts who manages to come out on top through a combination of luck trickery and genuine magical skill The Original Sins collection is a looD series of tales of John's early years where Constantine was at his best and at his worst all at the same timeCollects Hellblazer #1 Damn Jamie Delano really did write the best version of Hellblazer All John Constantine is and will be is already present in this one first novel The first story about Mnemoth is perfect all that Hellblazer is and should be The Tatcher story is a cute and fitting gag the third is mostly setup for John's family the Damnation and Redemption armies the vietnam story is horrifying John comes across as the ultimate anti hero a coward a basket case It's amazing how our general image of him is as 'a cool dude' seeing how much time he spends crying wimpering running away and doing nothing I guess a cool internal monologue does wonders for you This is just how I like my John Constantine though Strong and weak the perfect Wheel of Fortune though in the Vertigo Tarot Deck he is The FoolI do like the single stories best I think the series loses some of its punch with the drawn out stories But as a whole the entire volume is harsh and unapologetic much like the artwork in that regard I love it from cover to cover The only downside is that it ends on a cliffhanger and thus doesn't stand on its own But I guess the start never does

To come out on top through a combination of luck trickery and genuine magical skill The Original Sins collection is a loosely connecte I was in love with John ConstantineThis is a re read for me I originally read the graphic novels around 199091 The rating given from memory so many years later comes from the feeling that I had when I read these stories about Constantine I loved these stories and the I read the I loved themThe re read stems from the fact that I'm watching the TV show Constantine I wanted to refresh my memory about these stories I'd forgotten so much I had forgotten that Zed was a character and I didn't realize the episodes were taking ideas from these original storiesReading them now it feels a bit dated at times It always was political geared toward Great Britain in the late 80's And greed and capitalism aren't exactly passe right now either Some of the stories I enjoy than others I always love it when Swamp Thing comes into the picture so I was happy to see him show up in the last story of this trade paperback Same feeling about Papa Midnite The ghosts that haunt John the allusions to Newcastle the red demon good stuffSome stories held up to the re read better than others but there are some good horrifying moments Looking forward to continuing to read these Hellblazer comics and bring back memories
