This is the first comic I have ever bought. I heard good things about the series and was a fan of the movie so I thought give it a go and if it sucks its not a problem. It definitely wasn't a problem as from the time it arrived I couldn't put it down. The characters are fun, some tragic and getting to know John Constantine is a delight as it is a well written and deep character with all sorts of problems. If you have any interest in buying the collection give it a go as what is the worst that could happen.
