The first issue of this sprawling, romantic, action-packed tale of heroism and horror has a variant cover by the talented young artist Sean Murphy (JOE THE BARBARIAN) that illustrates the massive scope of what’s to come.
In issue #2, safe in sanctuary, Constantine is forced to relinquish the temptations of his hot and deviant nurse and limp back onto his beloved London streets only to find that things are changing fast in the City of Demons.
