Acclaimed author Mike Carey concludes his groundbreaking run on London’s working-class magus with JOHN CONSTANTINE, HELLBLAZER VOL. 18: THE GIFT. To restore his mind and save his life, John Constantine was forced to give a day of his life to a she-demon named Rosacarnis. It was a bad bargain, and one that he knew he’d regret—but he had no idea how quickly everything would go straight to hell in its aftermath. Over the course of that single day, England’s savviest street sorcerer lived several lifetimes—and sired three infernal offspring, whose incandescent hatred of him was carefully nurtured by their mother. Luckily for Constantine, the blood he shares with his sulfurous brood makes it impossible for them to kill him outright. Unluckily, his dwindling roster of friends and loved ones enjoy no such protection. And now that war has been declared on all that John holds dear, the lives and souls of his best friend, his ex-flame, his niece and his sister are all fair game for the non-existent mercies of Rosacarnis and her family. Can Constantine defeat his progeny, their mother and their all-powerful grandfather? Or will the so-called gift of fatherhood finally be the death of him? Collects issues #202-215 of the signature VERTIGO series and featuring the artistic talents of Leonardo Manco, Frazer Irving, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Lorenzo Ruggiero.

John Constantine knows the secrets of his native England like the back of his nicotine-stained hand. Unfortunately for him, he’s now a world away from that green and pleasant land. Constantine has returned to America, and this time he’s landed in the worst place imaginable: a cell in a maximum-security prison, with a 35-year sentence for murder. Adapting to his new environs will require a steep learning curve, but the world’s greatest magician is nothing if not flexible. In fact, the question that his fellow inmates should be asking is not how this strange-talking newcomer will endure being locked up with society’s worst offenders, but rather how they are going to survive the experience. That’s because Constantine has a few more stops to make on his stateside tour, and, unlike his cellmates, his journey begins in the joint rather than ending there. But when he arrives in the rural town of Doglick, West Virginia, to make personal amends for his crime, what he finds going on behind its closed doors shocks the famously world-weary sorcerer to his hardened, cynical core. Acclaimed writer Brian Azzarello is joined by legendary artists Richard Corben, Marcelo Frusin and Steve Dillon for a terrifying expedition into the darkest corners of the Land of the Free in JOHN CONSTANTINE, HELLBLAZER VOL. 14: GOOD INTENTIONS, collecting issues 146-161 of the signature VERTIGO series together with the nostalgic tale “The First Time” from VERTIGO SECRET FILES: HELLBLAZER.

Jump into the opening chapter of this wickedly funny and racy modern reintroduction of John Constantine! The dead can’t die again—even within the supernatural circles that surround John Constantine, some things are impossible. But when the ghosts that haunt the occult detective start being murdered, it becomes clear the rules have changed. Far worse than ordinary death, this second death means oblivion—no afterlife, no way back. To stop it, Constantine must explore the barriers between the mundane and the extraordinary: the thin places. The investigation takes the Hellblazer from New York City back home to London, where he joins up with an old rival, now an exorcist in Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Their dark, tangled history together is filled with music and magic, failed friendships and disastrous romance. But even if Constantine somehow survives the supernatural serial killer, the price involved could leave whatever’s left of his soul beaten and broken. CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER: GOING DOWN collects the first six issues of the groundbreaking series by celebrated writers Ming Doyle (THE KITCHEN) and James Tynion IV (BATMAN ETERNAL) and acclaimed artists Riley Rossmo (Proof) and Vanessa Del Rey (Hit).

SOMETHING’S ROTTEN IN THE BIG APPLE… Ever since English occultist John Constantine moved to Manhattan, the city has grown more magical by the day—in a BAD way. The Swamp Thing is out of his element when Central Park itself begins eating the city’s young lovers alive. A demonic infestation has taken over the city’s magical hotspots, forcing the powerful sorcerer Papa Midnite out of his supernatural nightclub and onto the street. And one of hell’s most lethal lords, Neron himself, joins forces with Constantine’s infernal ex to make New York a deadly offer it cannot refuse. Now Constantine must blaze a path through the most perilous places in this world and beyond, from the alleys of New York City to the bright lights of Los Angeles, from the mystical realm of Faerie to the bloody highways of Hell itself. To save his city’s soul—and what’s left of his own—he’ll need to work alongside enemies and allies, magical mistresses and a certain dead man. But how can John defeat evil when even he can’t deny the devil’s dark allure?

Death doesn’t just become John Constantine—it shadows the poor bastard’s every step, from his home turf of London to the streets of San Francisco. What’s more, it has a nasty habit of striking where the DC Universe’s street-level sorcerer least expects it—like his dreams. After waking from a vengeful drunken nightmare, Constantine finds that a real-life murder has been committed. Could he have done the deed himself in a blacked-out rage? Or is some sinister force turning his subconscious mind into the ultimate untraceable weapon? Until he discovers the truth, no one is safe. But the Hellblazer knows better than anyone how inconstant and malleable the truth can be—particularly when it’s in the hands of a magus with his talent and experience. Faced with the possibility of fulfilling his heart’s most secret desires, will he be able to resist their siren song? Or will he end up rewriting all of reality to suit his ego? Mystical mysteries flow thicker than the San Francisco fog in The Hellblazer Vol. 3: The Inspiration Game, straight from the collective unconscious of writers Tim Seeley and Richard Kadrey and artists Jesús Merino, Davide Fabbri and José Marzán Jr.!

Magic costs. It's the one lesson John Constantine has learned from his life of cigarettes, superheroes and sorcery. Every spell he casts, every demon he dupes, every fundamental force of the universe he warps-each and every action comes with strings attached and sacrifices demanded. But Constantine has always managed to avoid paying the ultimate price. Until now. When his war against a cabal of powerful sorcerers sends him screaming across the boundary between universes, he arrives in a world much like our own. A world dying at the hands of the mad god called Darkseid. This is the home of another John Constantine, one whose life was peaceful and happy right up to the end. To escape the apocalypse and save the few survivors he can, our black-hearted conjurer must join forces with his good-natured doppelganger. Together, they can return to Constantine's own world. There's just one catch: for one to live, the other must die... In CONSTANTINE: THE APOCALYPSE ROAD-a thrilling crossover with EARTH 2: WORLD'S END-the creative team of Ray Fawkes (BATMAN ETERNAL, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK) and Jeremy Haun (BATWOMAN) give the DC Universe's most dangerous mage the fight of his lives!

This book explores the connections between comics and Gothic from four different angles: historical, formal, cultural and textual. It identifies structures, styles and themes drawn from literary gothic traditions and discusses their presence in British and American comics today, with particular attention to the DC Vertigo imprint. Part One offers an historical approach to British and American comics and Gothic, summarizing the development of both their creative content and critical models, and discussing censorship, allusion and self-awareness. Part Two brings together some of the gothic narrative strategies of comics and reinterprets critical approaches to the comics medium, arguing for an holistic model based around the symbols of the crypt, the spectre and the archive. Part Three then combines cultural and textual analysis, discussing the communities that have built up around comics and gothic artifacts and concluding with case studies of two of the most famous gothic archetypes in comics: the vampire and the zombie.
