Hellblazer #285 (Biography of the bloody guitar Spoilers)

Another solid issue of a really enjoyable story arc, although I’m still freaked out by seeing people other than Constantine wearing the coat. I love the fact that Milligan brought Marc Bolan of T-Rex into the back-story here, and how, in the world of Hellblazer, he didn’t die by crashing his car into a tree, but was instead killed by a demon, it’s the kind of thing this book does well, hinting at a dark world of magic hiding beneath the real one. The scene with John smashing the guitar used by Hendrix was also great. I’m not sure about the stuff with the Mafia, but it’s the type of enemy Constantine doesn’t face all that often, so it should be fun. Carli Ihde’s finishes gave Camuncoli’s art a different feel than Landini’s do, and it worked pretty damn well, a bit scratchier, but still very much the same style.

My shop was shorted their entire shipment of this book. :smt013

They think they'll get some next week though.
