Written by Jamie Delano; Art by John Ridgway and Alfredo Alcala John Constantine is an unconcerned, somewhat amoral occultist with a British working-class background. He's a hero, of sorts, who manages to come out on top through a combination of luck, trickery, and genuine magical skill. The ORIGINAL SINS collection is a loosely connected series of tales of John's early years where Constantine was at his best and at his worst, all at the same time.

This is a highly decorated comic book worth checking out and reading nothing like the movie

Not my cup of tea - found it too busy - might have enjoyed it more as a novel, not sure

Beautiful art. I enjoyed the GN. However, I won't seek out more from this series because: the layout of panels coupled with multiple types of text boxes, large cognitive leaps between story lines, and fast action made the story somewhat hard to follow. Second, the demonic characters and their evil plots are more subconsciously frightening than I like. Also, the personal history of John Constantine and the things he does to fight demons are subtly disturbing. I felt cranky and tired reading this GN because it did leave a negative impression on me.
