Garth Ennis is best known for his work on Preacher, Hitman and Hellblazer, but has also worked on titles like 2000 AD and Pride & Joy. John Higgins has worked for 2000 AD in the UK and has also worked on titles including Hellblazer, Pride & Joy and Sandman. He was also colourist on the groundbreaking Watchmen series.From Booklist:
Cynical sorcerer John Constantine practices the mystic arts and stirs up trouble in London's back alleys in the comic book Hellblazer. In this collection, his usual necromantic demimonde intersects with the criminal underworld when his hapless mate, Chas, is implicated in the botched murder of crime boss Harry Cooper's brother. As often happens, Constantine's past resurfaces to haunt him: 16 years ago, Cooper forced the young magician to raise his five-year-old son, Ronnie, from the dead. Now, just as Ronnie prepares to unleash an unimaginable evil upon the world, Constantine reenters the picture. This story arc reteams writer Ennis and artist Higgins, his collaborator on the crime-noir graphic novel Pride & Joy [BKL Mr 15 04]; Higgins' slightly cartoony art accentuates the tale's broad, over-the-top aspects but undermines its horrific elements. Still, the denouement and the fate of the gangsters are genuinely chilling. A prospective film based on hellblazer starts with two strikes against it--Keanu Reeves miscast as Constantine and transplantation to L.A.; prepare for boosted interest in his print adventures, anyway.
