DC Comics has asked musician Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner to write the foreword to the CONSTANTINE, HELLBLAZER: 30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION collection. Sumner's foreword will appear as the Golden Boy, Constantine's alternate-universe twin, touching on his relationship with the occult detective over the years.

In a video announcing the team-up, Sumner donned Constantine's trench coat, echoing the fact that Hellblazer's look was originally based on his own.

The commemorative collection will explore the complete history of the series with four one-page essays written by HELLBLAZER author Rich Handley. It will also include a comprehensive timeline of Constantine's life and three one-page stories featured in JOHN CONSTANTINE: HELLBLAZER issues #1, 2 and 4. Memorable stories from Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Garth Ennis, Brian Azzarello, Paul Jenkins, Jamie Delano and others reflect the best of the long-lasting series, including HELLBLAZER issues #11, 27, 41, 63, 120, 146, 229 and 240 and SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING #37, where the character was officially introduced.

Constantine, Hellblazer: 30th Anniversary Celebration is set to release October 30. Meanwhile, Sumner's tour with Shaggy starts June 19. I wish I was joking.
