The very first Hellblazer collection Original Sins is available in a new edition that includes John Constantine’s appearances in Swamp Thing This is the first of a series Now that DC decided to kill Vertigo off for good I wanted to go through some of the imprint's books that I always wanted to read but haven't yet gotten the chance Chief among them is the original Hellblazer one of the most famous Vertigo series with an incredibly impressive list of creators attached to it over the years But it all started right here with Jamie Delano and John Ridgway kicking off Constantine's earliest solo stories in comics I was surprised by how well those stories hold up actually — even in these very early issues of Hellblazer you can see a lot of the DNA of other famous Vertigo titles that came later books like Preacher Sandman The Invisibles Shade The Changing Man and tons of others definitely owe a lot of their style and tone to Jamie Delano and what he did with John Constantine right here in Original Sins It's definitely not a perfectly smooth read — the book does take a while to really find its groove but the heart of it is right there from the very first issue It's also a rare book that managed to not piss me off with its verbose writing style — Jame Delano definitely does cram a lot of narration into his scripts but it's the kind of dark noir narration that only adds to the thick suffocating atmosphere of John Constantine's messed up world The stories here are disturbing and uncomfortable often veering into uestionable territory and yet Jamie Delano navigates complicated themes of the book with impressive depth and precision John Ridgway's artwork here is the ideal companion to the story — messy dirty often repulsive art style paired with wonderfully experimental techniues and layout make this book look perfect for what it's trying to be As a result Hellblazer is the uintessential proto Vertigo book the one that would lead the way for dozens of other creators in the 90's to create comics' most celebrated titles Hellblazer is a fantastic read if dark messed up and morally ambiguous is what you're after and it's only supposed to get better from here

Hellblazer Volume 1 Of new Hellblazer editions starring Vertigo’s longest running antihero John Constantine England’s chain smoking low rent magusThis first collection is a loosely connecte I was caught between 4 and 5 stars on this one Most parts are 5 stars but the fact that it wasn't one continuous story brought it down to 4 Not that it was hard to follow at all Just that most issues where stand alone stories for the most part I'm really enjoying getting to know this darker side of the DCU Along with Swamp Thing Sandman and Lucifer I've been astounded at how much uality titles I have overlooked for so long This book is full of demons ghosts and a butt ton of supernatural shit and it's awesome John Constantine is not a hero which I found rather refreshing He's not brave he's selfish manipulating and doesn't have much honour when it comes to doing the right thing But at his core he is still a good person I think that's why I found him so intriguing He seems to want to do the right things but goes about them in the most deceitful ways The story with the Damnation Army and the crazy Crusaders is building nicely and I'm looking forward to what happens with John's demon blood problem I thought Zed was a great character but I hope she doesn't disappear forever After the way things ended with John and her I would hope that isn't the last we have seen of her If you enjoy the greatness that is dark side of DC then definitely give this a go Onward to the next volume
