A woman scorned by her husband and society accepts a dark gift from her lady lover and uses it to exact her bloody, erotic revenge. The premise of this new title hits all the benchmarks for a good horror comic: It's simple, subversive, gratuitous, and awesome! Whether the book lives up to its solicits, however, is yours to discern.
Constantine The Hellblazer #7
As I learned on the podcast Journey Into Misery, Constantine was first introduced in the pages of Swamp Thing in the 1980s. Today Constantine is well into his third continuing series and Swamp Thing is swinging by for a guest appearance! The only question remaining is which of their classic character dynamics they will be repeating. Will they help each other discover more about their powers? Will they manipulate each other into losing touch with their remaining humanity? Who knows! Maybe they'll do that thing where they possess each other's bodies to conceive an anti-christ! #crazykids
