    A very promising curtain raiser. Shame we're stuck with the boy wizard PotterHunter but given the Gaiman emphasis in the line that's not going to be negotiable. At least the presence of Tim will stop future writers from writing John as though he ceased all intellectual and emotional development in his early teens, so it might turn out to be a good thing.

    I am pleasantly surprised. This was quite good. I could have done without all the Books of Magic continuity, but I knew that was what this reintroduction was going to be based around, so fair enough. Outside of that, this was the first time that John Constantine has read like John Constantine in a long time, maybe Milligan's "The Scab" two-parter. I'd say that Spurrier definitely has the Vertigo John done well, and it seems like DC is actually interested in letting Hellblazer be Hellblazer again after all these years. If Spurrier keeps this up and has some interesting plots for John going forward, this is absolutely going to be a Hellblazer comic book worth reading again. The plot that Spurrier was setting up for future stories was of interest to me. I look forward to seeing where Spurrier is going with it. I am cautiously optimistic, because I've been burnt many times before, but none of the reboots started off as strongly as this issue from Spurrier, which is hampered by the Books of Magic tie-in remit besides. So, I'm going to keep picking up this Hellblazer relaunch. I'll give this a 7. Story-wise, it didn't do a lot for me, because I don't care about the Books of Magic anymore. Writing wise, it's quite good and shows a lot of promise. So, I'm rating it more for what it seems that this could be, rather than this issue in and of itself. With a better plot, one not so steeped in Tim Hunter lore, this could've been an easy 9. EDIT:Wow. I just figured out that Hellblazer, proper, ended over six years ago. My, how time flies.

    He's hit the back of the net! "Tell the truth or I'll exorcise your bollocks off" 9 for what is a better bridging episode than BoM 13 suggested, but I expect this runs into 14. An now we know what Gemma's bullet did (or we have a v.big hint)
