In celebration of the release of the Warner Bros. Pictures "Constantine" movie this February, DC Comics presents Constantine: The Hellblazer Collection. This trade paperback showcases the official Vertigo comics adaptation of the film, along with three classic issues of John Constantine, Hellblazer: #1. The first issue, Hunger, kicks off the series Hellblazer, the story of John Constantine and Vertigo's longest-running series, and sets a new tone for this character who first appeared in Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. The next, Hold Me, brings Sandman creator Neil Gaiman and his longtime artistic collaborator Dave McKean to the title with a haunting story of fear and loneliness. And finally, A Drop of the Hard Stuff, written by Preacher co-creator Garth Ennis, begins the ongoing feud between Constantine and the Devil. Suggested for Mature Readers.
