I came to meet Constantine through Dangerous Habits and later on through the movie with Keanu Reeves. I like it a lot (one a bit better than the other but both were captivating in representing anti-hero turned hero in the perspective of human race).
So I decided to try reading the origins. What I liked straight on was the unmistakable 80's feel. I guess that is a part of Hellblazer being the longest running series - from the beginnings it dealt with all the issues in the current society then sprinkled some magic (both black and white) on top.
It is a great comic book. Two pages panels are amazing, coloring is magnificent, the only thing not great is that the story gets hard to follow towards the end (not even finishing in this issue) and required a lot of researching, reading some Swamp Thing issues and continuing straight on to [b:Hellblazer: The Devil You Know|320814|Hellblazer The Devil You Know|Jamie Delano|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1309221042s/320814.jpg|311550].
Constantine character is unbelievable - we keep seeing him sacrificing everyone around him just for the opportunity to give a human race a chance of struggling on its own without interfering of either Heaven or Hell. It makes you sympathize for him but definitely not wanting to end being his friend.
