second year of the Sandman Universe begins with the long-awaited arrival of one
of DC's most iconic characters...John Constantine, Hellblazer!
He's cheated death and damnation more times than he can count, but never like
this. Long ago, in the crucible of a magical war waged across countless futures,
Constantine was murdered by an all-powerful adversary: a twisted version of
Timothy Hunter, bloated with evil. But over the past year strange forces have
conspired to restart Tim Hunter's tale, and somehow-amid sorcery, insanity and
secret agendas-this older, wiser, wilier shade of Constantine has been dragged
back with it. Unlike young Tim, John remembers every second of a life that went
very, very wrong. Now he must ask himself why he, the last person in the world
to deserve a second chance, has been given one. Is John Constantine here to put
Tim Hunter on the right track and avert a terrible outcome? Or is it because
he's the only person in existence with the guts to do what REALLY must be done?
After all, he's a nasty piece of work, chief...ask anybody. This oversize
one-shot sets the stage, and is the perfect jumping-on point, for a new era of
Sandman Universe tales beginning in November...and is the official start of the
strangest chapter yet in John Constantine's long life!
John Constantine's return to his roots takes place in the new DC one-shot series
SANDMAN UNIVERSE SPECIAL HELLBLAZER #1 which ships with two standard covers and
is currently scheduled to arrive on New Comic Wednesday-103019 with a $4.99
