Review: Hellblazer: Phantom Pains (Hellblazer Original TPB #34)

User Review  - Ser - Goodreads

" "His most recent works are Marvel's best-selling "X-Statix", a vicious pop culture satire, and "Vertigo Pop! London", a rock 'n' roll tale of the big city, and Greek Street also for Vertigo.""

Since his "Future Shock" debut in Prog 37, Brett Ewins has been one of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic's most beloved artists.
