    New creative team Ming Doyle (Mara, The Kitchen)
    and James Tynion IV (Talon, Batman Eternal) relaunch Constantine for the #DCYou.

    The much beleaguered title and main character has to be an
    intimidating one — Constantine has seen many forms, from
    a Vertigo comic to a movie starring Keanu Reaves (what?)
    and riding the recent wave of comic book television with 2014’s Constantine (RIP).

    Getting a handle on the character is no easy task —
    Vertigo writers in the past include Garth Ennis, Warren Ellis,
    Peter Milligan, Andy Diggle and many more.

    Constantine in the DCU is a younger character and Doyle and Tynion
    are allowed to play him that way, hopefully to generate a new
    audience for Constantine as well as bridge the gap with older readers.

    This being a DC Comic and not Vertigo hurts the book in my opinion.

    John Constantine should be able to swear and be raunchy.

    Issue #1 isn’t a bad go at the old guy, though.
    Our demon whisperer shows up naked in a clothing shop covered in blood
    and brains. Later in the story, he is drafted by Blythe for a quick shag
    and his first ‘mission’ against some demons.

    Riley Rossmo has great stylistic choices for his art, including a
    landscape splash page cutaway view of the club and by the end of the book gets to draw some cool looking demons.

    I’m interested to see where this goes, issue #1 had enough bite to
    want me to pick up the next issue. This book doesn’t seem to be
    pandering to any fans of any Hellblazer incarnations — that could be a blessing or a curse once the story develops more.
