The Phantom Stranger says that the house exists outside of time so absolutely no time passes in the real world while John is in the house......so they basically just gave a master prepper unlimited prep time?

The first issue and second issue were ok, nothing special

the third issue was really confusing and boring to be honest because part of it involved the plot of issues 1 & 2 and then suddenly and out of nowhere the Specter appears to do...

I dont remember, i just remember that he leaves and then the ongoing plot ends but I dont remember how or why.

I didnt read issue 4 cause as you can see from my comments i didnt care much for this story but I read very very harsh reviews about it, I think CBR review gave it 1 star and said something like this is everything everybody fear of the Constantine book, a pg-13 hellblazer, or something like that.

This wasn't in the New 52 right? O.O don't remember him appearing in that series yet.

Damn, that's impressive.

If Constantine's feats of trickery match his old feats, the guy is bound to be a nigh-unbeatable prep god.

Is Demon Knights any good?

The reception has mostly been positive from what I've seen and you can't really take CBR's reviews seriously at times.

*gasp* You're a fan of Constantine, Lvenger? I thought you hated his brand of anti-hero character.

I like some anti heroes. Key word being SOME lol. Constantine is a massive jerk but he's a complex character and a Brit. Even if he is a Liverpuddlian as we Brits refer to those from Liverpool :P I've just never gotten into the much superior Hellblazer though.

Would you say post-52 Constantine is far more powerful than pre-52. Pre-52 was noted for his lack of immediate raw power and the need to plan and prepare. If caught unprepared he almost had not defense. This was seems to have greater access to immediate magical might.

@comicstooge: He's building a team to fight a beast (Blight) that is amped the evil in human psyche. Constantine,Nightmare Nurse and Swamp Thing goes to the dimension of Collective Uncounscious of every being,souls that ever lived to strike back and they're defeated,then Constatine cast The Trinity of Sins to help them.

@strider92: Where are you mate?
