Fortune telling, Constantine’s father, more evil demons and arguably worse angels, and of course dead soldiers who can’t find rest.
Not a standout volume, but still pretty good.
Mini reviews (spoilers):
The Nature of the Beast
Reading the future is a common enough trope in this genre, but I enjoyed it.
Walking the Dog
Another ghost story…
Oops. A neat twist.
Punkin’ Up the Great Outdoors
Going to be a weird one:
Of course it all goes poorly in the end. As these sorts of things do.
Sins of the Father
That’s an interesting way to do magic, it literally true. I may have to steal it.
He’s such an odd / interesting one.
As far as strategies/metaphors go…
Quite a hard hitting story. A bit of mental relief for Constantine, I think? And always wondering just how real it was.
Football: It’s a Funny Old Game
Constantine, going to a football game. What could possibly go wrong?
Part One: The Single Sided Coin
Constantine has been through quite a lot… and the mental toll of that seems to be catching up with him.
Part Two: The Trouble with Worms
Part Three: The Darkening of the Light
Now that’s a follow up. Nothing without a cost, especially in Constantine’s world.
Ellie as well. Oh Constantine(s) you sod(s).
A weird/incomplete place to end.
A Taste of Heaven
In a world where divine inspiration seems both commonplace…
…and to come with a cost? I’m looking forward to it.
In the Line of Fire
A solider’y ghost story sounds like.
Part Two: Over My Dead Body
Another fascinating character. Ripe for puns:
A quick end but a good story.
