Hellblazer #288 (The Horny Lass Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Feb 18, 2012 11:47 am

This arc of Hellblazer really is great stuff, possibly among the best stories the title has had, and that’s saying something with the quality this book has had for years, nay, decades. John tries to trick Satan who also tries to trick him over the fate of his sister’s soul. The scenes were John goes to visit his sister in Hell were brilliant, very dark, and very gripping. The page of the blood-soaked bed was a shocking visual, and although the revelation as to why Cheryl was in Hell was probably something we could all see coming, it made sense. Much like last issue, the real horror actually came in the ‘real’ world, rather than the underworld, with the relationship between Gemma and Terry continuing to reap very scary fruit. Is she dead? Who knows, but I can’t wait to find out. If you’re not reading Hellblazer, you’re missing out on one of the most daring comics out there, one that’s not afraid to go for it.

Great issue as always, but the art seemed a little off here. Giuseppe (I'm sure I spelled that wrong) is fantastic, but this felt a little rushed. It may have just been the inking, but it wasn't as good as he usually is IMO.
