John Constantine's grip on sanity has always been tenuous, but now he's really lost it. Haunted by memories of punching Epiphany, the cracked magus tries appeasing his tormenter by making a bloody offering of his own flesh.

John's a few cigarettes short of a full box 0

I love Hellblazer, it's probably one of Vertigo's best ongoing series and has been that way for years.
