John Constantine is a bastard. He’s cheated the devil himself and now he’s going to have to pay.
Hellblazer: Rake At The Gates Of Hell is the fifth collection of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Hellblazer run, compiling their final story arc.
The dynamic duo, who have gone on to become one of the hottest writer/artist teams in the industry, working on such titles as Preacher and the Punisher, craft an honest tale of a man who is trying to do the right thing, but keeps failing miserably.
Constantine, who will be the subject of a major movie next year starring Keanu Reeves, struggles like a worm on a hook to evade The Devil until a final confrontation that ends with a twist — of a knife.
Anyone who has never read any of Ennis and Dillon’s previous Hellblazer stories will likely be hopelessly lost. But their run was so good anyone interested should start at the beginning and cap their collection with this book.
