This weeks review over at Impulse Gamer.
The Hellblazer #22 was an issue I had trouble with. The story is really good, and very well written. It’s not a very new reader friendly issue, but it is fun none the less. The issue I had with this book, and it is a similar issue I had with the first issue of this run of the series: The art just doesn’t fit with the story content.
I usually go into a series with John Constantine wanting to see art that is as gritty and dark as the character and the occult content. Instead we see standard DC/Marvel style art. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad to see the series continue, but without the art that was a staple of the Vertigo days, this issue just isn’t as strong.
